We got together again, which is fantastic. We were totally on a roll in October, which hopefully will continue into the rest of 2015.  And in typical K+P fashion, we inadvertently dressed similarly....blacks/whites/neutrals on this (finally) Fall-like day!

Sometimes I go for senatorial chic.  What's easier than black, white, and pearls?

Coat: H&M (similar car coat)
Top: Club Monaco (similar structured top)
Skirt: S.Y.L.K.(similar)
Shoes: Sole Society (ladylike splurge)
Bag: streets of Florence (similar)
Necklace: streets of Taipei (like this)

Well I definitely wore this same top a couple of posts ago - oops. But it really is a fantastic shirt.  Looks just as good with jeans on casual Friday as it does with a skirt and cardigan on a regular working Tuesday.

Top: Banana Republic (alternative)
Skirt: Halogen (alternative)
Shoes: Ann Taylor
Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Tote: Madewell

Old Places New Looks

So these outfits made it to Instagram way earlier than they did to the blog - bad bloggers!

Anyway, though the backdrop of this picture looks rather grand (pretty pillar, ornate carvings, etc.), you should probably know that the whole time we took these pics, we were both whining about how much the area smelled like pee.  Ah, good ole downtown LA.

So I am apparently the last working woman on the planet to shop at Ann Taylor.  I have been a fan of Loft for years, but for some reason when I heard "Ann Taylor," I always thought of clothes with a more matronly fit which were a little less hip.  But then one day I stumbled onto Ann Taylor's site online and found myself filling a shopping cart to the gills.  Fortunately, I talked myself out of a good 75% of those items (thus saving myself a few hundo), and ended up with a few things that I already adore. Case in point: this cardigan, which fits like a dream and is the perfect shade of heather gray (which means I will wear it 600 times this year).  I also got some shoes that I've already worn four times, which are so damn comfy I can hardly stand it.

Listen, this outfit is boring.  It's just black.  But I love this outfit.  It's kind of a neat cut on a black dress, flowy, shifty, flattering - and under a nice little black jacket, I can go to court in it just fine!

That is all that matters!

Dress: Hardwear (edgier like this)
Jacket: Maison Scotch
Shoes: The Limited (and love these)
