First snow of the season! I’m bundled up in a great vintage Eddie Bauer Collectibles wool sweater I found at the thrift store the other day- it is in perfect condition and I love the color. Danskos and wool socks are always a functional choice, and I’m looking forward to another season with the vintage Brooks Brothers toggle coat I found on eBay last year!

Teaching staples

Aconcagua boots from GiBlack, Banana Republic skirt, thrifted Ralph Lauren linen shirt, my sister’s Gap jacket. It’s good to have a nice staple black skirt that is appropriate for work but still cute- I found this in the petites section on sale and never get tired of wearing it.

I love fall because it means time for scarves. This beautiful piece of vintage Japanese silk was a gift from a lovely Japanese lady I know. I put a merrow edge hem on it and voilá: I have a new scarf! I love the texture and pattern on the fabric and it’s soft and a beautiful fall color palette. Wearing Sperry Top Sider navy sneakers, Simply Vera black jeans, and a thrifted Gap denim jacket.

Thrifted cashmere

Finding a great cashmere sweater in perfect condition at a thrift store for less than $5 is my secret to happiness. This gem is vintage Calvin Klein made in Hong Kong from a little town in Wisconsin. It has sweet buttons up the left side shoulder and is soft and perfect! Worn with my fave Railcar Fine Goods Viper x008 jeans (note the swank selvedge edge at the ankle cuff AND at the fly- so fly) and some mystery European oxfords I found in my sister’s closet. Pink for fall!

The leaves are falling in Denver and we’ve even had our first snow! I’ve taken a bit of a fall break this past week but am back in action with (what else) my new favorite boots. GiBlack is making these great boots in Menorca and importing them by way of NYC to us! They come in grey as well and are super comfortable and so southwestern looking! I have a hard time finding good riding boots that fit many occasions, and that fit over pants. As you well know, I like to have a staple standard shoe or boot and wear it with everything. These fit the bill! Worn with Mossimo jeans from Target, a thrifted cashmere sweater from Ann Taylor, Madewell tank, 50 Dresses green silk scarf.
