'Who Steals My Purse, Steals Trash...'



As mentioned on my Fall Style Guide Video (here), this Fall has seen me in nothing but midi skirts in bright hues, slouchy sweaters, a belt for structure, necklaces galore and towering heels. It just works, is super comfy and is the perfect go-to outfit for those mornings that I've only given myself 15 minutes to get out the door!










The leather red/orange bag from JCrew was such a great buy. The color is phenomenal, the size is perfect and for a leather bag, the price wasn't too bad either! Currently sold out in this color but you can get it in black or grey and it's on sale now (here)!

And a big thank you to Jade of Fasion Rouge for awarding BBBLog The Versatile Blogger award and to Carla of Cougar Vintage for awarding the Liebster Blog award! Much love! Check out their sites ladies!! 

What I'm Wearing:
Sweater: H&M
Skirt: JCrew
Bag: JCrew
Shoes: Zara
Belt: JCrew
Studded Collar: DIY
Necklace: Forever 21
Rings: YSL, Made Her Think, A Peace Treaty
