Throw a big menswear-style coat over it and call it a night.

Happy Friday, friends.

Welcome to my fall uniform: bright crewneck sweater, mini skirt, and d’orsay pumps. And this mini crossbody from The Limited has been my go-to bag all fall. I find this outfit timeless and classic, with just enough added interest from the bright sweater and leopard wallet. My boyfriend says I look like I’m married to a Kennedy. I guess that’s a good thing?

Thoughts?

I don’t usually like to wear pink for the same reason I don’t usually order white wine when I go out. I hate the stereotype that all women love certain things: the color pink, whipped cream flavored cocktails, Emily Dickinson novels, and bad romantic comedies. Oh, and we hate science and we’re scared of doing math, too. Am I the only one who gets unnecessarily upset when a bartender automatically suggests something fruity or floral to drink? Hell, everyone who finds out that my boyfriend and I have a both a chihuahua and a lab immediately assumes the chihuahua was my doing (it wasn’t). But today I thought, “Screw it, people will think what they want to think, I’m wearing pink!” And then I made up that rhyme about it. Ok, I’ll stop. Like my outfit?

Creepy twin Kates!

This little set isn’t supposed to be reversible, but I just couldn’t help it. I’m all about matching sets right now – they provide the instant-outfit convenience of a dress with the versatility of separates. And an (almost) reversible set is like a reversible bikini – four outfits in one!. But more like a bikini for someone whose idea of working out is swearing at the tv through the first ten minutes of a Jillian Michaels workout, then retreating to the familiar comfort of her sofa. Or for someone living in a landlocked, water-restricted state. So basically, perfect for me.

Let’s move from the painful subject of bikinis and – ugh – working out to something more fun – accessories! I got this sweet tungsten carbide ring from Modern Design, and while I’m usually more of a gold jewelry person, I’m loving the modern, menswear vibe it has. Perfect to pair with a girly little set, and the only accessory this outfit really needs.

Happy Halloween!! I’m off to finish making costumes for my dogs…
