Many years ago, I had a friend who was going through a breakup from her long-time boyfriend, the boy whom she just knew she would marry. Living together, she had accepted all his quirks, human faults and even his pet snake. After the breakup and during the move, the pet boa constrictor went missing. Though she thought is was unfortunate for her (now) ex-boyfriend, she proceeded with her move, taking the furniture that was hers which included the couch. About week later, as she lay on her couch in her new apartment watching television, guess who decides to crawl out of the back of the couch and look her eye to eye. Yep! That missing pet boa constrictor. Can you imagine?!

Snake print is always fun (when it's not crawling around on the ground or out of your couch), but it's even more fun with COLOR! I love the way Eight Sixty brought two main vibrant and complimentary colors into this tank. As the weather gets cooler, I will be wearing this tank with dark wash coated skinny jeans and a long boyfriend cardigan. How are you wearing your snake print for the fall?!

Quilted Sweatshirt

RD Style Black Textured Faux-Leather Accented Sweatshirt (available at Jupe NYC) /
Old Navy Black and White Crew Neck Tee / Denim: Joe's Jeans / Heels: Nine West (purchased at Warrens Shoes; similar here; also love these) / Necklaces: Stella & Dot (old; similar here) / 

No matter the season, having a simple "go-to" piece in your wardrobe is ESSENTIAL! This RD Style black textured faux-leather accented sweatshirt is my current "go-to". I love that it's super easy yet it also has characteristics that set it apart from other simple "black sweatshirts". The faux-leather elbow patches and its quilted design make it easy to pair with heels, yet the overall material makes it easy to pair with loafers or ballet flats. Wear by itself or layer over everything from a white button-down to a simple striped/colored tee. What's your fall "go-to" piece? Do you have an effortlessly chic outfit you can go-to when you have a last minute appointment?
