Crossing the Rhode

linen rhodes blazer 

This is my first Rhodes blazer - in linen - that I stalked online and snagged on a popback for a steal. I dig the color and gold-tone buttons, though I think the fit is a bit wider than most of my other J.Crew blazers in the same size. I don't know if it's because the material is linen or that's just how the blazer fits. Next time when I'm not super-sale stalking, I guess I should try one size down to compare fits.

(And I'm a bit tardy in posting this outfit - it was from a few weeks ago when it was a bit warmer).

A Little More Ruffle Sleeves

pink vest

Just when I thought it was properly becoming fall with cooler temps for layering, it starts heating up again. It's just as well, because it gives me another opportunity to wear this fun ruffled tee, which is a favorite purchase from this summer. And top things off with a splash of leopard print that seems to work really well with the black and white stripe.

Comfortable Statements

A good thing about it getting colder now is that we can comfortably snuggle in to some good layered looks. So it automatically makes me think of cozy - but still far from basic - sweatshirts and really letting the shoes and outerwear make the statement. With a standout coat, everything else is too easy when it comes to looking pulled together for the cooler months.

Here are some cozy sweats and some statement-makers that I've been eyeballing recently (and the pink loafers are already mine) - all from Shopbop and all non-affiliate linked:
