OOTD: Brown & Black

New skirt who dis? Last month I had the sudden urge to buy all of the skirts for fall. I picked this one up at the Mall of America while I was in town for work. Disclaimer: usually I do not shop at Forever 21... I just don't like the cheap items and knowing that their labor isn't the greatest. BUT, I will say their quality has extremely improved since I was in high school/ middle school and shopped at Forever 21. I guess that's what 6 or so years will do to a brand! So, hats off to you Forever 21 for making a pretty good quality skirt for $20. 

What I loved about this skirt was A. the length actually fit me how it was supposed to, B. it combines both brown and black, and C. buffalo plaid (enough said). This skirt I picture with so many looks from a plain black sweater, a simple white top, to a oversize cardigan with tights. The possibilities are endless!

For this look I paired it with a simple white button down with black velvet bow accents. This is one of my favorite tops that I purchased last year, and I've worn it so many ways since then. Investing in classic pieces like this is super important to me. Getting versatile basics with a little flair make outfit planning a breeze. Since it was actually a pretty warm October day I opted for no tights with flats. But, you could easily add tights and swap the flats for boots for a chilly fall day. 

My beret is back to play in this look. I told you I like berets! This one I purchased while I was studying abroad in London. It has tiny little black rhinestones on the back, which add a touch of sparkle. Which is always a good thing! My jewelry is pretty simple just some pearl studs and a gold bracelet. Then my flats are my classic black Tory Burch Reva Flats. A great classic to have in your wardrobe.
