Outfit of the Day: Crisp Autumn Sunset

Happy December everyone! For the last week, I've been lucky to have nice, snow-free weather in my city, and thought I would take advantage of the dry ground to do an outfit of the day during sunset. This is one of my favorite trendy-casual outfits to wear: the blazer and jeans keep it simple, but the accessories (specifically the shoes) kick it up a notch!


Watch: Michael Kors


Blazer: Nordstrom
Shirt: Target

Jeans: Express



Necklace: Nordstrom



I barrel curled my hair with a 1" curling iron, then gently tugged on the curls to loosen them a bit.

My favorite part of the outfit: the shoes!


Heels: Sam Edelman


I love the way the heels catch the eye when I'm walking away!


And last, but not least, the bag! I like that its gold hardware matches the shoes, necklace, and watch.

Handbag: MARC by Marc Jacobs

Hopefully the weather continues to be fairly nice so I can do more of these posts... there's something about outdoor pictures in the fall that I just love!

xx, Allison

  35. I've been a devoted follower for quite some time. You have been such an inspiration to me! Every time I watch one of your videos or read one of your blog posts or tweets, I automatically think "this girl and I are like sisters from another mistah" - pretty creepy, I know. I promise, my stalking has it's limits ;)

    I've never actually left a comment, just watched from the sidelines. Today though, thought I'd stop by and say hi. And tell you how rocking this outfit is. I'd love each and every piece in my closet, asap.

    You're an awesome person. Keep doing what you're doing!
