The belt strikes again! It wasn't so easy to see in the last outfit, so I hope this look shows it off a little better. The weather could not have been more perfect this weekend. I love crisp fall days likes these.

These photos were taken on Saturday, when we went to the most picturesque first birthday party ever by Fletcher's Boat House. B and I are currently analyzing our schedule for a free day to go back before it gets cold.

This sweater is a thrift store find. It's a size XL, which makes it a marvelous mix between a sweater and a coat. There's something awfully nautical about it, too. Up until now, it's been my version of a Snuggie for TV-watching and porch-sitting. Nice to finally have an excuse to share it with the real world.

Absolutely perfect! That belt is stunning -- I NEED one -- and you know I love a huge sweater. You pull it off like no one else.

PS LOVING! New Orleans! OMG!

Love the sweater jacket/dress/etc. Sometimes thrift store finds are the best kind of finds. :)

I am in love with this look, I love the color combo of the tights, socks, & boots, probably my fave color for leather.

Your vintage LV is so darling. It's neat to see LV worn fashionably and differently. Love this outfit.

That sweater is perfection (although I would be sure to throw coffee, red wine, and spaghetti sauce on it since that always seems to happen to me when I'm wearing white)! This whole look is so cozy and autumnal!

Jill said...

Love the belt and the sweater! You look so cozy chic.

I love the boots. I see cute belts and pass on them every time because they aren't my thing and then I see them on others and wish they could be. That belt is a great way to make an oversized piece work.

What a fantastic outfit! I love how the belt matches the sweater!

Christina said...

Those boots are pretty fantastic and I really like that shade of tight you are wearing. It seems very functional as it mixes well with cream and brown.

Sal said...

Pardon me while I swoon over those boots ...

I love this. Mostly the boots/sweater, because I want exactly them. I tried on an XL at goodwill 2 weekends ago, but it was not as awesome. I should keep trying :) Thank you for inspiring me ;)

FABULOUS boots. Also, the Snuggie comment made me giggle a little inside :)

You just summed up every fall look that I love into one outfit!! Right down to the colors. This is my favorite outfit of yours yet. Which was a very tough decision, because you have incredible style!!

Anna G said...

I love the heavy knit. I'm such a fan of sweaters. I wish to find those boots. I love the style.

Mish Dish said...

I love the cardi coat this fall. You look chic and cozy on a gorgeous fall day. I heart the vintage Louis so perfect for the lady like bag trend. xo Mish

Haute World said...

What a great way to wear a cardigan! I have a very similar belt in black (which also happens to be H&M), but have only worn it with dresses. I'll have to try the cardigan version as well! That vintage purse is gorgeous by the way.

riennahera said...

Lovely belt and sweater combo.

anotherfishinthesea said...

I looooove your boots. And with the sweater and and belt? You are like the fall superheroine or something!

Ashley [Free Honey] said...

your version of the snuggie > the actual snuggie.

Sidebar: I am morally opposed to the snuggie. I find it offensive on many levels.

I like how you belted this sweater, its not the kind of thing I would think to belt, but this looks really good. I think it helps that you had a big belt for a big sweater.

emilypanda said...

I very much LOVE your sweater with the belt! + your Kors boots... I have steve madden tall boots and I almost got the brown ones... now I am almost regretting it...

Anna Jane said...

i love how a belt can change just about anything! so cool that you went sans skirt, too. and while i'm admiring your outfit, i LOVE that you paired socks with tights! i will definitely be trying that..

OMG! New Orleans is perfect! Tried to go to Slim Goodies this morning but it was so closed, so we'll head back Wednesday. Tried Bouligny, instead. Commander's Palace tomorrow night! It's our big night out, I'm so excited. Thanks for all your recs, you steered me EXACTLY where I wanted to go. Oh, and stopped by Sucre, too! Everything is too fabulous for words! I wish I could stay forever.

I love sweater coats! I saved mine from high school (crazy I know) and am excited to wear an old abercrombie one. Yours is so pretty!

this free bird said...

This is an amazing look on you. I never in a mil would have guessed the sweater was XL - maybe because the fab belt stopped me in my tracks. I didn't think it could get any better until I scrolled down to those fabulous boots!! This outfit is 100% win!!
