As much as I love getting dressed up and draping myself with accessories, sometimes keeping it simple just fits the bill. With weddings and showers winding down, I have reclaimed my weekends. This means lots of catching up before the holiday season starts. With a long list of to-do’s, my errands were sure to take me all over the city.

My comfy weekend wear usually entails leggings paired with a sweater/cardigan/sweatshirt. Knowing that I’d be out all day, I needed an outfit that would take me from day to night. I stuck with my comfy equation but took it up a notch. No plain leggings here! I am obsessed with quilted faux leather anything and the paneling on these leggings are killer. The asymmetrical wrap cardigan has the warmth of a sweatshirt yet the elegance of a cape. The final touch to this outfit? A punch of color with my chunky bracelet and flats.

Outfit Details:

Asymmetrical Fleece Wrap Cardigan: Bobeau (in grey excalibur) from Nordstrom, $39.90. This is one of my fave items from my closet. It’s warm like a sweatshirt yet elegant like a cape. It makes the perfect travel companion, especially while on airplanes. If grey isn’t your thing, this wrap comes in 19 different colors/prints!

Heather Grey T-Shirt: Old Navy (vintage-style v-neck in medium gray), $7.50.

Pants with Faux Leather Quilted Panels: J.Cooper from Lord & Taylor, $40.50 (retail $54). I took advantage of the L&T F&F event a few weeks ago and saved 25%. From now thru 11/18, use code VETS to save 20% ($43.20).

Flats: Bloch from Rue La La, $50. Bloch does make frequent appearances on Rue so definitely keep an eye out there for them. I’m telling you, Bloch flats are so comfy. Lord & Taylor still carries limited styles of Bloch flats, here. Use code VETS thru 11/18 and save an additional 20% off.  For something in a similar bold hue, try Franco Sarto Flats Zapp flats in blue, $48.74 (with code VETS, $38.99) or the Merona Madeline Ann Studded Ballet Flat in blue from Target, $21.99.

Aviator Sunglasses: Prada Outlet, $129. Piperlime has a selection of aviators for $100 or less. I also like these aviators from Urban Outfitters. At $14, it’s a steal!

Bracelet: Tory Burch Outlet, $35. For something similar, check out the Etsy shop, Brentag. At such an affordable price point, buy a few to stack! I own a Brentag bracelet and love it!

    Love this look (especially the leggings… and of course the dog too)!
