This may be one of my favorite looks of all time. A midi skirt, a hat, and a fabulous bag. What's not to love. Not to mention this whole outfit, down to the wedges, are all super comfy... and also all available to buy! Every last piece!

Happy Friday!

The best part of fall is that you can wear a million layers. When building an outfit, you can start with a simple skirt and then who knows where you will end. With an abundance of scarves, light jackets and hats to choose from, it is no doubt my favorite season to dress for.

Speaking of layers, This Gap jacket is probably the most perfect color and fit of any jean jacket I've ever tried. I highly recommend it!

My new neighborhood Nordstrom Rack in South Loop has been amazing with it's clearance section! I found this sweater for $12 bucks and my girlfriend even found a Milly dress for $140! Unheard of!. I also scored this slim midi skirt. It's length offsets the slim silhouette and makes it feel more appropriate for me to wear to school.

This outfit combines three of my most favorite brands as of late. This Ann Taylor dress has been perfect through summer and is easy to layer in Fall. It's sold out but there are so many great pieces there right now. Two in particular I picked up this weekend are this chic tunic sweater and this elegant bracelet.

Boohoo is a quiet favorite of mine. These white shoes were an ironic throwback to my school age years till a student in my class showed up wearing them in black.  Not so ironic anymore. I've always been pleasantly surprised at the quality and look of everything Ive ever ordered from there. I absolutely adore their midi skirts and have this floral one and this orange one. Both under $30! Ive even picked up a cardigan or two for my hubs in the mens section.

Lastly we have Daily Look. I'm new to their site but boy was I impressed with this mint vest and this long polkadot dress that I instantly fell in love with! Their prices are quite reasonable too. You can totally find some quality pieces here.

And there you have it. Three shops, totally ready to shop! Now get to it!
