a new fall outfit

Sanctuary sleeveless blazer & Sanctuary ‘Grease’ legging.

Are you ready for Fall 2014? I’m still not ready yet, but I’m open to transitional pieces that will help me ease into the change of seasons. I was in Macy’s last week and spotted the plaid pants right away. The darker color palette and stretchy yet thicker fabric are what sold me. Since they are fitted, they will easily fit into knee-high boots and they look cool with ankle boots too. Also, I ought to mention that the fit is slightly loose on me, so it’s not skin-tight as is shown on the stock photo above. I got my usual size, a medium, and the fit is comfortable and not tight or binding in any way.

Sanctuary pairs the leggings with the vest or what they call the sleeveless blazer. This vest is crazy versatile. The structure and detailing of the vest is superior for its price point. The faux leather collar and pocket trim remind me of my Rag & Bone tuxedo blazer. I also like the lower armholes on this vest, which provides lots of comfort temperature and layering-wise. This one piece elevates your look: throw it over a plain tank or tee and jeans and your outfit looks put together instantly. I want to try it over a white button-down shirt. Or, over a dress.

Have you done any shopping for fall? Is there anything you can’t wait to break out again once the temps drop?

Have a safe and lovely Labor Day weekend! xx
