If there's one thing I wish I had more time to do-is cook. When your refrigerator only has ketchup, orange juice, and 10 day old brussel sprouts - you go eat out. I typically wear these khakis to work, so to dress it up it's easy to throw on my Jcrew sweater, a fitted blazer, heels, and of course a glam necklace. Nothing dresses up an outfit more than jewelry. Links and suggestions below!
Pants: you'd be surprised how long I've had these H&M khakis. And for only $20, you can't beat it. I wear them to work with a pair of flats and I have them in several colors. They are so comfortable and can be worn day and night.
Necklace: Jcrew Factory is my absolute favorite place to buy necklaces. They are unique and usually under $30 when on sale. Loving this tortoise shell necklace.
Blazer: This is from the banana republic heritage collection and fits me like a glove, no alteration needed. My other favorite place to buy blazers is Zara.
Sweater: I bought mine from Jcrew last season but Stripes and elbow patches never go out of style for me. Linked below is one from Jcrew I would highly recommend.
Marshalls - if you haven't gone there to go shoe shopping, I would. They have a ton of fall boots in all different styles.
