Casual Neutral Outfit for Fall

Happy Friday Friends! There's nothing like experimenting with neutrals. Basically, you can end up with a limitless wardrobe (who doesn't want that?!). And you want to know what? This look is actually from last year here. You probably couldn't tell. All these pieces are still in my closet and get worn, except those espadrilles had to be replaced because the soles were coming off. Yes, I wore them to death and then bought another pair. This might also be a reminder for myself to keep adding neutrals to my closet. And speaking of neutrals here are some from the sale over at Madewell because hello extra 30% off-RIDICULOUS (code: GOODLOOKS) like this sweater, plaid shawl, and this knot-tie long sleeve

While I didn't think this through, but I did have an actual outfit to post. I've been dog sitting across town in Santa Monica all week (aka living there) and didn't bring my picture files. The dog owner is super sweet to let me use her computer, but I also can't navigate it (and feel a little weird poking around). So just know I'm on the struggle bus trying to make today's linkup post happen.

Thank you for linking up, FOR REAL! Our picks are Ruth from My Little Nest and Grace from Color and Grace! I would insert the image, but I can't find it on this computer lol. Am I getting old or what?

The Best of Madewell's Sale Section

UPDATE! Madewell is currently offering 30% EXTRA off sale till 10/23! Use code: GOODLOOKS 
Annnd hurry because things go F A S T!

Happy Friday! It's even a happier one because there are quite a few pieces that I LOVE that have been added to Madewell's sale section (insert hands up emoji). You might remember a few or a lot of these from previous fitting room reviews. But these are just too good to pass up!

cream sweater

TIE-CUFF PULLOVER SWEATER $79.99 (Now $49.99) // Wearing XXS
It's an oversized sweater that has a little something but still a great basic. It comes in several colors and looks like you put more effort into your outfit. There's enough room to do the half-tuck in the front, too.

floral silk dress

SILK POPPY DRESS IN WILD BOTANIC $148 (Now $99.99) // Wearing Size 6
This little dress is just that good! I'm honestly shocked to see it's been marked down already! It does seem to run a tad small in the waist and I'm only wearing a bigger size because that's all they had. It has the right length and not cut too low making it work appropriate, but the shape totally makes it happy hour ready.

black and white gingham dress

GINGHAM RUFFLE DRESS $98 (Now $34.99!) // Wearing Size 0
I personally own this one (you can see it here) and for this insane sale price it just doesn't get better than that! 

star print top

WRAP SHIRT IN STAR SCATTER $75 (Now $49.99) // Wearing XS
Let me just say (again), I'm not that into star prints but this cute top changed my mind! It's so cute and with some white jeans and jean jacket, it's so easy to style. It is short in length, so keep that in mind. You could only wear this with high-waisted pants.

navy silk top

Totally fell in love with this top the second I saw it and trying it on only confirmed it's great. I picked it up recently and have been wearing it so much. It has a V in the back and tried it on at home with it in the front and you wouldn't even know. So it can work worn two ways. 

Thanks again to everyone who linked up with us! Jessica and I always look forward to reading your posts! Our picks are Kristina from The Kontemporary and Tilden from To Be Bright!

Fall Layering for Warmer Climates

cardi c/o old navy // top // jeans // espadrilles (on sale!) // purse // sunglasses // earrings

Let's be real, LA is one of last places that gets actual fall temperatures. It usually starts out cooler in the mornings and by midday you're regretting your outfit choice. Rather than packing away all my summer tops and dresses, they're getting the chance to mingle with my cardigans that I've picked up oh since July. Somedays I'll even venture and swap my espadrilles for booties. But if there's one cardigan that I reach for every season it's this one! They keep bringing it back each season and this year I picked it up in two colors. If you love having pockets, it doesn't get better than this for the price! And if you worked with me at my last job, you probably thought this was the only sweater I owned (last seen here). 

Now, it's time to take a look at last year's outfit here. The jean culotte is something I still find hard to wear, but a fun way to change it up from the typical skinny jean. What do you think?

Thank you for joining the linkup! Everyone has great posts! This week we are featuring Shauna from Lipgloss and Lace and Jules from Scorse of Styles
