Date Night Outfit of the Day

Eyeliner: Stila All Day Waterproof in Midnight
Clutch: Urban Originals
Jacket: Dion Lee
Jeans: J Crew Factory
Pumps: Jimmy Choo

I don't know about you, but I'm so excited that navy is everywhere for fall. I'm a fan of slamming up jeans for a night out, and these pumps are so super sparkly that keeping everything else toned down is key. Even better is that the clutch is now on sale for under $30, and the jeans are under $50.

Casual Outfit of the Day

Turtleneck: Autumn Cashmere
Skirt: Gucci
Earrings: Bauble Bar
Booties: Steve Madden

I know, I know, I've posted two beige turtlenecks in a row, but how great is a beige turtleneck? This Gucci skirt is a little more high-end then I usually like to post in outfits here, but there is just something about that calls to me. I will probably be on the hunt myself for a less expensive option. The chunkiness of the bootie pairs well with the knits especially since it has a little bit of a longer length then what you normally see on a bootie. This will make the ankle seem slimmer and, for most people, will be a better option when paired with a skirt. I've named this a casual outfit, but the earrings add a bit of drama and make this a great transitional day to evening out for drinks kind of outfit.

Fashion in Real Life

Sweater: Michael Kors Collection $155                      Sweater: J Crew $230
Trousers: Isabel Marant $460                       Trousers: Current/Elliott $91.20
Scarf: From the Road $250                                                 Scarf: J Crew $78
Earrings: Leigh Miller Jewelry $ 325                      Earrings: Bauble Bar $32
Heels: Sportmax $585                                                Flats: Nine West $88.95

This look was grabbed out of the September issue of InSTYLE. The outfit in the magazine comes in at $1775. Using the cashmere turtleneck from J Crew, my outfit totals $520.15, but for once the original sweater is less, so if you keep the original sweater, you could get the price of the outfit down to $445.15. That's a whopping 75% reduction in the price, and that's only if you need to buy every piece new. Using pieces from your closet, how much would it cost you to recreate this look? I'd love to hear, so leave a comment if you are going to try to recreate the look.
