Everyday Outfits 10/13/17

|
Hello and happy Friday! It's been another typical week here with the exception of Wednesday night. We attended a Cow by Bear dinner party, which I'd never heard of prior to the invitation. Basically a bear (i.e. a person in a bear costume) cooks dinner for a small group in a location that feels more like a private home than a restaurant. After the experience I still don't understand the purpose of the bear costume, but it was a fun evening and the food was delicious regardless! I didn't take pictures of what I wore to that because I was rushing out the door, but here are my everyday outfits from this week. Express is having a storewide 40% off sale again this weekend, so I've noted the pieces that are part of the promotion.

Outfit Recap:
All pieces run true-to-size unless otherwise noted.

Rust Cardigan, White Cami:
Cardigan (c/o) | Cami | Necklace (c/o) | Shoes (On Sale) | Similar Jeans (Same Brand-On Sale) | Tory Burch Handbag (Sold Out, Shop Designer Leopard Handbags)

Fit Notes: My rust cardigan is TTS. Normally I wear an XS in cardigans at Express but I'm wearing a Small in this since it doesn't come in XS. It's a little roomy but since it's not a piece that needs to be especially fitted I didn't mind the sizing. I ordered a half-size down in these taupe mules.

Olive Moto Jacket, White Tee:
Tee (c/o Shopbop) | Jeans (On Sale) | Bag (On Clearance) | Shoes | Jacket Options Below

My olive moto jacket above is from Nordstrom last year (sold out). I didn't find one that I thought was a perfect dupe so I opted to show you a few similar options at multiple price points that could easily be styled the same way:
One ($33) | Two ($45 - On Sale) | Three ($98) | Four ($198)

Striped Tee, Burgundy Cardigan:
Tee | Cardigan | Jeans (40% Off) | Shoes (c/o) | Bag (c/o) | Necklace (c/o) | Bracelet 

Fit Notes: This burgundy cardigan is very comfortable and more of a sweatshirt material than a sweater material. It's very casual/borderline loungewear! It doesn't come in XS so I ordered a Small, and if fits like I would expect a Small to fit. The sleeves on this are actually too long for me and kind of wide at the wrists, but I loved the color and comfort so I just decided I'd keep it and either roll them or push them up a bit. With very casual pieces like this I am a little more forgiving of fit issues like this, especially when they make up for it in comfort. 

Black Cardi, Grey Lace Up Top:
Cardigan | Top (On Sale) | Shorts | Shoes (c/o) | Bag (c/o)

Fit Notes: Everything including the shoes runs true to size so not much to add on this!

Burgundy Cami, Light Grey Cardigan:

Fit Notes: Everything ran true to size except for the shoes. I took a half-size down.

Camel Moto Jacket
Jacket (c/o SheIn) | Tee | Jeans | Shoes | Necklace (c/o) | Bag (c/o) | Earrings | Bracelet (Full outfit post Here)

Fit Notes: This jacket runs small so thanks to the reviews I ordered one size up. I'm wearing a Small here. I'm also wearing a half-size down in these taupe booties.

Burgundy Ruffle Hem Top
Top | Jeans (On Sale) | Shoes (c/o) | Bag (c/o) | Necklace (c/o) | Similar Watch | Bracelet | 
(Full outfit post here)

Fit Notes: This top is only $14 and runs true to size. It's an amazing dupe of this one at a fraction of the cost. I also struggled a bit to get an accurate color representation on this top. The color name is burgundy, but it looks totally different in the mirror selfie vs. Instagram/outdoor (below) vs. the full outfit post. It's not a true burgundy to me...more of a brick-berry-red hybrid I guess.

Instagram View:
Here's the top view of these outfits with the angle I typically share on Instagram. I like to put these in here too when I can since they often give a better look at jewelry and bags.

Wow, that felt like a lot of outfits this week! I usually don't have seven outfits worth sharing in a week either because I didn't like them or I didn't like the pictures! Hopefully it gives you a lot of sale shopping inspo! I just got my Express order in from the Columbus Day sale and I already returned a few pieces that didn't work out. But there were a few I liked and although I doubt I'll be able to get them into a post over the weekend, I may try to share them on my Instagram story so follow along there for the scoop! Have a great weekend!
