Summer skirt recycled

I originally bought this skirt (H&M) for the summer, but I wanted to get more mileage out of it for work. I feel like I wear the same gray and black skirts all winter. With the help of these tights (Ann Taylor Loft $14.50) that are amazingly warm and this plaid shirt (Forever 21), which was also bought for the summer and was much warmer with some layering (Sweater, Kohls), I was able to extend the life of this skirt. I also just love the colors in that plaid shirt and that sweater is super cozy. I wasn't even that cold at work where the vents blow out cold air in the middle of winter.

French-inspired jacket

So I definitely neglect this little houndstooth jacket. I give it looks when it's in my closet, but I always decide to go with something else. Today I tried to wear it with these blue corduroys ($10 H&M!!!) to add some spiffyness to an overall plain outfit. I threw on that red beret for kicks because I think there is something French about the jacket. I have this tight black dress that I wear this over sometimes with tights, so that is probably why. What do you think? Is the cute jacket totally wrong for those blue corduroys? Let me know!

I wanted to wear my boyfriend jeans but they are, of course, cropped, and it is starting to get cold outside, so I pulled them over my favorite Franco Sarto boots and created a look for work with this white blouse from New York and Co and this pinstripe vest from Wet Seal. This outfit easily transitions into a night outfit with skinny black pants...
