Autumnal Starkness

Silk Scarf (thrifted)
J.Crew Coat (thrifted)
Express Strappless Dress (thrifted)
Old Navy Tights (Which are awesome, they're nice and thick with a little transparency, I think I'll start getting my tights from them for now on.)
Dooney and Burke Bag (thrifted)
AE cuffs and Vintage Brass Floral Cuff
Rag and Bone Harrow Boots (ebay)

I was really excited about my outfit today because tada, my new(to me) boots just came in the mail.  I'd mentioned a while back that I really wanted a pair of the Rag and Bone Harrow boots and I've searched for some cheaper alternatives for the past few months with no luck.  I really like the particular look of these so I've been saving up parts of my checks for a pair.  They go on ebay for usually 30 to 40% cheaper than they do in the stores but I got lucky with this pair, getting them lightly used for almost half off.    I was really nervous because aside from my actual Ariat riding boots, I've never paid this much for a pair of shoes but wow, I'm happy I went for it.  These have to be the most comfortable shoes in my closet, there's a ton of padding and they're at such a comfortable heel height, I had no trouble wearing them all day.    They're gorgeous and I'm really happy that I held out for them and saved up.


  1. babe alert!! I can't even handle how gorgeous these photos/your outfit/you are!

  2. Hahah, congrats on the new booties, they rock! I love you in that dress! The way you accessorize is just perfect, the scarf is so dreamy! ^_^

  3. oh well, what can I say.. it's another gorgeous outfit from you. so classy and elegant. and even the gloomy background looks beautiful behind an outfit like that. I really enjoyed the photos. now, when it comes to my favourite pieces I adore the combo of your scarf and coat (and feel some sorrow when I think about what happened to my own favourite coats). the dress is really cool too and of course your arm candy. what a big statement candy that is! great job, Katie, as always.

  4. Your new boots look great! It's always wonderful when a new pair of shoes is actually comfortable.
    I also just really adore this whole outfit. You styled this strapless dress so perfectly. I love the way your red coat looks with the pattern on your scarf. Gorgeous!

  5. Such a pretty outfit. I really love the red coat. It's so bright and cheerful. And those boots look great, too. I love when shoes are both stylish AND comfy.

  6. I don't even know what to comment on because everything is beautiful?!

  7. You look so amazing in red. You should wear it all the time.
