New Cardigan With Leopard Loafers

I'm wearing a new cardigan and really liked it.  Sometimes I don't like things as well as I thought I would once I put it on and see it photographed, but I was pleased with this piece.  I was initially attracted to the golden mustardy/tan color of it (and the price-only $3.59) and knew it would be a great neutral and go with a ton of things in my closet to make lots of outfits.  In our fairly mild climate, it will get extended wear throughout the majority of the year due to it's sleeve length and open knit style. 
I liked how the cardigan turned out paired with the gray sweater.  I added my super comfy leopard slippers and a scarf to turn this into an outfit favorite.

Rose Gold and Gifted

I had this outfit pre-planned for Wednesday so that I could wear my new dusty rose and taupe scarf.  On Tuesday I met my daughter for her birthday lunch and a bit of shopping.  She gifted me with an early Christmas present of this beautiful rose gold sparkly bracelet and pretty earrings.  They just so happened to go with this oufit perfectly.  Thank you, Shelley!  I love them. :)
While we were shopping I thrifted this taupe and black purse that I'm carrying here also.

Bulky Knit Cape

This is not one of my most favorite fall purchases, but it was fun to try.
It was soft, cozy, and warm so I'll probably wear it again, but it may not get the pass to walk my personal runway for fall/winter 2015.

New Scarf - An Inexpensive Accessory

Olive is not a color I ever remember wearing much of before.  For some reason, over the last few months, I have taken notice of it and randomly purchased several pieces in this color.  I've acquired a couple of cardigans, a v-neck tee, a pair of loafers, and 3 or 4 scarves that have a predominant color of olive. 
The scarf I'm wearing here is my newest acquisition.  I like that it has colors of mainly olive and tan with a bit of black and off white as well.
My basic black column seems to be a frequent go to these days and is easy to add a completer piece (cardigan) to and accessorize with necklaces or scarves to vary the look.  I wore simple gold earrings, my super comfy black ballerina flats and carried my olive handbag.
