On-The-Go Chic

At first glance, I was unaware of how truly amazing this outfit is. This woman’s style is somewhat subdued, especially in the age of Lady Gaga, and her casual elegance does not immediately inspire a “wow” reaction. However, her knack for pairing a few stand-out accessories with classic pieces is what really caught my eye, and ultimately, my admiration. To start, can we all take a moment to appreciate those boots? The wedge is perfect, the contrasting accents even better, and the extra-long laces are the icing on the cake. And then there’s her coordinating speedy bag. It’s rich, deep orange color is ideal for autumn and gives the entire look a bright color pop. Moving on, that green jacket looks amazing. It’s oversized without looking huge, and the fur collar provides a wonderful contrast to soften up the military vibe. Lastly, her navy blue cloche hat adds a final touch of sleek sophistication.

For a similar, chic ensemble, try wearing The Changeling Hat and The Fuzzy Wuzzy Coat with the Arbor Boots in Cherry!
