Burgundy colors like the color of this skirt seem to blend so sweetly with cognac colors like those found in this leather jacket.
Soft body-conscious knits are taking over my closet for fall so it was no surprise when I snagged this long tube skirt. By styling it with a cropped cashmere cardigan, leopard scarf, and cognac leather hooded jacket I kept the figure skimming properties of the skirt intact. There are endless possibilities for fall and winter outfits using this long tube skirt and I am excited to put together another look. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

I love the way this bra peeks out under tank tops thanks to the criss cross straps. It really can make even the most basic tank look really unique. I told you I wear these James Perse long tanks all the time and I definitely wasn't lying. I wouldn't mind having a whole bunch of these tanks in different colors. They come in so handy and I love James Perse because the fabric they use is so soft against my skin. I wore a bright pop of color over my black tank. I had never heard of Demy Lee before Gilt Groupe so when they were having a sale I checked it out. I noticed Demy Lee uses a lot of cashmere fabrics, bright colors, and stripes. This Demy Lee cardigan in particular is made of cashmere and I adore the pink stripes. It adds a punk vibe to the all black outfit. We took some up close photos of the square pink buttons on this cardigan as well. I love all the Demy Lee cardigans and sweaters I have bought off of Gilt and you really can't beat the price. It is nice to bring some pink back into my life in a subtle way.
Three Dots makes some great basic pieces that are made in the USA. This front zipper skirt that I am wearing is thicker than it looks. I think having two zippers down the front makes it stand out from all the other skirts that have one zipper going down the back. I wore a silk skirt from Three Dots that I bought from the same Gilt sale a few weeks back on the blog. I hope that Gilt Groupe has more Three Dots and Demy Lee sales. The great thing about Gilt is that you find out about designers and brands you never would have heard of if you are always shopping in the same place.
For shoes I wore my Miu Miu shearling lace up boots. I swear that every time I wear these I cannot help but pair them with pink items, hence the cardigan. They are great for trudging around in the snow because they have soles similar to hiking boots. They remind me of my Alaia hiking boots a little bit, but they are taller and have shearling.
