It’s been a while since I’ve worn this pleated skirt out because I have this irrational fear of ruining my favorite pieces of clothing so I often 1) get a back up 2) store them in garment bags for aesthetic purposes only. But what good are clothes if you can’t wear them?

H&M Tank, Theory Blazer (similar), Club Monaco Skirt (similar), F21 Necklace & Rings , J. Crew Necklace, Chanel Bag, Stuart Weitzman Shoes (2, 3)

And Ann Taylor’s October new arrivals have officially gone on sale. I couldn’t resist and ordered a few things earlier this week.

I have been in search of a scarf like the one shown below, I think I may have found the one!

The top on the left is on sale for only $14.50. I debated getting it but ultimately decided against it.

And fur vests are very on trend this season (and has been for the last little while); similar versions can be found at places like H&M for less but the Ann Taylor’s version is not a bad option.

And my absolute favorite from this season: the Tie Neck Long Sleeve Blouse. Coincidentally, I also bought the tweed skirt shown on the right. I hope they work out for me because they sure look beautiful in photographs.
