A Peek Inside My Closet

Personal Style

So I talked about having a uniform of sorts for the summer and I definitely have some go to pieces for the cooler weather as well. This fall I've been kind of living in sweatshirts/light sweaters and skinny jeans paired with sneakers or boots. These are a few pieces that I recently added to my wardrobe. I was gifted these Vigoss Chelsea Skinny Jeans at an InStyle Holiday event I attended. I'd heard of the brand but this was my first introduction to their jeans and I love the styling and fit of this pair so much that I plan to get another one soon. The embellished sweater is from Metaphor by Sears. Now Sears is not somewhere I usually shop but their newly relaunched Metaphor brand has some really cute pieces and they're so affordable. I really liked this top when I spotted it at the same event and found it on sale for $21.99 a week later. I thought this Banana Republic "Little Black Sweatshirt" was a cool takeoff on the Little Black Dress and it's proven to be a great layering piece. I bought these Bare Traps boots in January of last year but couldn't wear them at all last winter because of my injured ankle so I consider them new now. They couldn't be more comfortable and it's nice to be able to wear footwear with a little bit of a heel again. This style isn't available anymore but this pair and this pair are similar.

What are you currently wearing?

Morning Rowena! I remember your previous post in summer and Im glad you did the same also this fall. You know, Im wearing the same things at the moment as I love to stay comfy and warm. I soon fell in love with the sweater and the sweatshirt, both are totally nice and cool. Also the jeans, didnt know the brand but you seem very satisfied with it. Glad also you are able to wear the booties, that model is so versatile and perfect with everything!:) Hugs! xo

The little black sweatshirt is too cute as is the embellished top! I'm living in the same easy separates and shirt dresses (life of a new mom means my wardrobe choices are limited!)

Well, I am not surprised to see a grey piece in your fall uniform having in mind your previous post. But this embellished sweater is so feminine and I like it so much! It's really nice that you got a cool pair of jeans and you love wearing them! And great news about the boots! I really like the whole outfit! Looks comfortable and very stylish! I am currently wearing pretty much the same things - jeans, boots, sweaters. I am into blazers and big scarves this season as well.

I really like these pieces! I think most Sears stores have closed around here, but I am interested in that new collection you mentioned. The little black sweatshirt is probably my favorite pieces. It's too cute!

Jane @ anothermommablog.blogspot.com said...

Beautiful pieces. I love those boots. Boots are my go to shoes in the fall/winter; I just can't get enough of them :)

My Garden Diaries said...

Great pieces friend! I love the tops you have up there! I totally believe in go to pieces as well!! My big thing is is having a warm but cool coat and plenty of fun knitted hats to look put together when I am running all over the place with the beans in this cold weather.... Oh and plenty of boots!! I will have to check out that line at Sears as I have never heard of it before! Happy Wednesday!!! Nicole xo

Those are very similar to my basics right now!

jo said...

I'm wearing similar items too but I'm into sneakers nowadays, which is weird because I rarely wear them. I always in flats or heels. I guess it forces me to wear socks cause it's so cold now. And what happened to BR? I was never a fan but I bought a whole bunch of sweaters from them yesterday. Love their styles now!

I really like the embellished sweater, that looks like a really chic piece. And believe it or not, I have yet to wear a skinny jeans, for some reason I am afraid of it? I'm worried it might make my legs look like a fast sausage. And yes, I worry about the stupidest thing. LOL!

Love the sweatshirt!

Anna said...

Ugh! How genius, the LBS (little black sweater)!!!! I need to find myself one! I have actually been really attached to the basic v-neck cardigan. I have a black and navy colored one and dress it up and down. I have also been living in my faux suede mahogany brown boots. I've also been loving my wool coat! Love the pieces you picked out to share from your closet, I'm going to find me a black sweater now! haha

FASHION TALES said...

I have to say that sweatshirt is too adorable. I also love your boots! Wishing you a lovely weekend Rowena. x

We are basically wearing the same outfit. HAhahha Black boots and blue skinny jeans are a must in my closet. Benn wearing that for the past decade I guess.

Ivana Split said...

I used to avoid skinny jeans but I recently got a pair (as a gift) that I like and hence I wear them quite often....and almost always with boots!

btw I really like this uniform of yours:)

miss b said...

I like the embellished sweater which is quite subtle with just the right amaount of sparkle. I'm wearing a lot of grey at the moment in different shades from very very pale to dark.

Love those boots! It's the best when you find a good pair of jeans...I recently found a brand that fits me well and I bought two pairs because of it! I am currently coveting a sparkly sweater at my favorite downtown boutique...there is only one small there, but I am trying not to spend money. I keep thinking about it though, so that probably means I will get a lot of use out of it...

Jessica said...

You have some amazing items. I love your gray top.

i love the sound of skinny jeans with boots! for me it's been all about adding some sort of knit piece! usually a hat but a scarf too. and i've been wearing a lot of black leggings. just so comfortable and keeps me warm ;)
