Over The Shoulder Draped Cardigan

I had actually never worn my cardigans in this way until recently.  I really like it! It gives the outfit added color and interest, is a great layering piece, and is available if I get chilly.
I imagine I'll be wearing my cardigans this way a lot in the future. :)

Fringed and Flared

 I thrifted these slightly flared jeans to try the popular fringed look.  I cut them off and gave them just a tiny bit of fringe.  I didn't want this pair to look sloppy so I only fringed a little bit and used a dark denim.  I may do another pair sometime in a more casual lighter wash and not cut them off quite so short.  I'm not sure yet if I'm fond enough of the trend.  I probably just prefer to roll up my skinnier fit jeans....but it was fun to try on an inexpensive thrift pair.

New Banana Republic Sloan Fit Pants

I recently thrifted these gray pants and also a black pair of the same style, but in a smaller size.  Both are the Banana Republic Sloan Fit style.  This style is great because the legs have a slim fit on me which I love.  Not too baggy, but not super skinny.
 I've had this top for over 4 years and really like the coral and light gray colors.  It's lightweight, I like the v-neck, and it feels a little on the dressy side without being too much so.  I'm leaning away from lots of prints these days and opting for more solids(except stripes or prints in scarves), but I do like the print and colors in this one so I've kept it.
Paired with the loafers this was a very comfortable look for me and about as dressed up as I like to be.

pants $5 Banana Republic

Are 4 Pieces of Snakeskin Print Too Much?

Well, don't answer that.  I already know the answer, but I couldn't help myself.  I rarely get to use these pieces and so I piled them all on and splurged on snakeskin print. 
This was the last days wear on these flats though because they rubbed my foot a little.  I covered one place up with a tiny band aid and so that was okay, but then they just rubbed another spot...and I thought well, this is just unacceptable.  Out they go.  I have plenty of other shoes so no need to be uncomfortable.
I would say I covered my two favorite Pantone fall colors in this outfit...warm taupe and sharkskin.

New Animal Print Loafers and Faux Leather Jacket

These leopard loafers are backless.  I love this style that you just slide your foot right into.  They have a cognac trim that matches my new jacket too.
The jacket is a brand I had not heard of.  It is by Bernardo Fashions.  On their webpage here's what they had to say about their pieces:

"Bernardo’s company signature is trend-right fashions with an international design sensibility. By producing outerwear that is rich in detail, Bernardo designs showcase modern style & sophistication.
Bernardo offers the customer a high quality, easy to care for garment with a high fashion twist. Bernardo designs are go-to pieces for the modern woman with an active lifestyle. "

From looking at their faux leather jackets at retailers, such as Nordstrom, I'm guessing this jacket originally sold for between $70 and $100. 

jacket $4 Ashley B Bernardo
leopard slippers $4.79 Talbots
black top $5 Talbots
pants $6.99 Halogen
purse $3 Kelly & Katie
scarf $.69 cents
earrings $.49 cents
bangle set $1.50
necklace $3.65 via Target
