back to basics

skirt (bought at Fred Boutique in Fish Creek, WI)
Denim jacket (similar)
booties (here - 20% off with code DEALTOBER)
Rebecca Minkoff tote (similar)
Rebecca Minkoff Sunnies (here)

I purchased this maxi skirt this past summer on vacation and just can't bear the thought of putting it away for the winter so I'm stretching its potential with a denim jacket and booties. Seriously though, I've met a lot of maxi skirts in my day but never one with a lining (mini skirt length) which I LOVE love love because it keeps those lumps and bumps in check. On that note, I just might keep this one around all year...

safari wear

Old Navy Dress (on sale)
Vest (here)(similar)(love this one!)
Anthropologie Belt (sorry I took the last one. in existence)
Aldo booties (here)
Rebecca Minkoff Cupid Satchel (here)
Rebecca Minkoff Sunglasses (here)

I found this belt on super sale at Anthropologie a few weeks ago and couldn't pass it up. Besides the fact that it was the last one in the store and it was in my size, there's something really fun about the dangling wooden animals. The belt gives off a safari vibe to me so keeping with that theme I paired it with my fancy hunting vest and easy sweatshirt dress. I'm pretty sure the animals on whatever safari I take part in will appreciate this get up.
