Rounding out my Anthropologie visit are two pieces I loved when I tried them on.

~ Harvest Moon Poncho by Angel of the North, Maize, Medium ~
This sweater comes in Maize, Ivory, Moss and Raspberry. My store had this color and the Ivory, which I did not see but think I would like. The medium fit well but almost seemed a little big. When I tried the small, I liked the look of it much more. This has a cowlneck and buttons on the side to assist with the bat-wing sleeves. It’s a little difficult to add a vest over it but I managed. 

I’ve worn this twice already and it goes very well layered over J Crew’s Silk Sleeveless Blouse. I wear them all the time and they are almost like a second-skin now. I started adding a thin cami underneath since they tend to get a little static and clingy. I prefer the Seamless Cami from The Limited.

~ Sparkled Tulle Skirt by Moulinette Souers, Small ~
I never noticed this skirt in store until an SA brought it to me to go with the Harvest Moon Poncho. Because this is a pull-on skirt with an elastic waistband I was able to fit comfortably in the Small. There are sequined critters all over the skirt (Squirrel, Owl and a bird). The length hits just below the knee on me. I couldn’t resist this skirt so it came home with me. 
Here’s how I wore the Harvest Moon Poncho last Saturday. Husband and I went on a Brewery Tour in Austin. It was a lot of fun but a really long, tipsy day. The weather was chilly and misty all day. I added a long-sleeve tee as the first layer because the sweater is loosely knitted and not perfect for warmth by itself. The sweater matches almost exactly to one of the colors in the blouse.

Some days you just know you’ve created the perfect outfit. The outfit that makes you feel amazing and chic and puts a little more bounce in your step. The hair and make-up may not be perfect but that outfit, oh the outfit, you want to wear it, or at least recreate it, every single day. Some people have a knack for pulling clothes out of their closet and it just works. Every time. I do not have that ability. Creating that perfect outfit daily is something I cannot do without a little help from my friends. (Pinterest, the Stylebook App, Instagram, other Blogs).

But today, I loved what I created. I just bought the Harvest Moon Poncho over the weekend during the 20% off sweaters promo. I tried it on with this skirt (reviews coming soon) and loved it. It has that bat-wing, open-side, dropped/no shoulder trend/s going on. It’s see-though so layering is in order and it’s a turtleneck, something I stay away from. But the turtleneck is slouchy and wide. Pushing up the sleeves helps with the bat-wing and the Silk Sleeveless Blouse was the perfect layering piece.

I even have little bulldogs on my socks (J Crew). I don’t see them online but they were in the sale section in-store. There are Elephants, Bows and I also love these Anonymous Isom socks
I was totally comfortable all day long.
Now to figure out what to wear tomorrow.

~ Quinn Ankle Boot, Dark Cedar, size 7 ~

A few weeks ago I was at the Factory to return these same boots in the Rustic Grey. That day, they started the 50% off everything in stores. I saw the Dark Cedar boots and fell in love with the color. 

I have on a thin sock and they are comfortable, still fitting true-to-size. I like the color of the suede even more than the Rustic Grey. I also like that the heel is darker.

I keep forgetting my “frequent shopper” card but could have gotten an additional 30% off. I now have that tucked in my wallet so I don’t forget to use that savings! 
See my review of the Rustic Grey {here}. 
Have a Great Day!

Happy Shoes-day and Happy Fall! It actually feels a little cooler here in South Central Texas right now.

~ Quinn Suede Ankle Bootie, Rustic Gray, size 7 ~

I wasn’t necessarily in search of Gray Booties but found another pair I really liked and wanted to compare the Quinn’s to them. I used my Gilt 30% coupon to order these. 
They fit TTS in my normal size 7. They won’t fit if I wear a thick sock with them though. The suede is very nice and better than I expected for the Factory. The gray has blue undertones which I didn’t notice IRL until I saw the photos. 
The heel is not quite 3 inches and is stacked so I feel it’s very manageable to walk around. 
They look a little western-wear to me especially the shape of the top and the back. The sole is man-made and could probably use a little rubber added to prevent the sole from being to slick. 

Though the Rustic Gray color didn’t work out for me I do like the Quinn Bootie overall. I’d take my true size 7 in the Dark Cedar if I was looking for a brown bootie. The price is pretty reasonable, even without a promo. 
Have you tried the Quinn Bootie?
