Outfit Of The Yesterday: Burgundy + Camel + Black + Mint

♫: Settle – Two Door Cinema Club

I hit Banana Republic up recently during one of their 35% off deals, and was happy to find both this sweater and this skirt. While both are fall-ish in appearance, the sweater is a really nice weight (definitely not too thick; also not too thin) and it has a slightly scooped back to help set it apart from the usual boring crewnecks. The skirt is also lightweight, while still being fairly structured and crisp

One downside to the skirt is that it wrinkles somewhat easily–it’s a weird sort of wrinkle, though, if there is such a thing. The wrinkles aren’t like linen wrinkles (the worst sort of wrinkles of all, riiiight up there with those I-just-took-a-2-minute-nap-on-my-face-and-now-resemble-an-old-lady-Sharpei wrinkles), but I had pressed the skirt with my handheld steam iron (have I ever discussed how much I love this little thing?) just before snapping these pictures and you can still see some of the slight wrinkles in my outdoor shot. The fabric does hide the them well, however, and it isn’t noticeable until you get reeeeally close.  But if you’re picky and don’t like appearing any sort of rumpled, this may not be the skirt for you.

I found that both items ran a little small, and so I sized up one size in each from my usual Banana Republic size. I also opted to do regular sizing versus petite–and was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the slightly longer length of the skirt. I just wish they would make the sweater in a few more exciting colors–the “winter burgundy” hue is pretty, but the rest are pretty darn boring & bland. Hint hint, Bananer, hint.

Anyway, enough of that. Time to hop away–hope you guys have a safe & happy Labor Day weekend!

    H! Loving all of the fall colors in this outfit. I’m totally immersed in fall fashion now even though it’s 90+ degrees in Miami…I can’t wait for a little bit of a chill to wear something Fall inspired.

    Really disgusted to see fur. What a colossal disappointment. But now I see what kind of animal lover you truly are…one of those fair weather ones.

      I didn’t understand why you’re disappointed just now, because I already saw Chloe using leather several times, and I’m a vegetarian myself, but I understand most of people are not. So I keep my expectations low so I don’t be disappointed w/ other people’s choices.

    Loving all of the hints of mint!

  • I have a question. Chloe? I don’t mean to be rude (this is genuine curiosity), but what is that that you’re holding in your right hand for these pictures? Is it something to do with the arthiritis? I’ve seen it in a couple of other posts of yours, & was just wondering- sorry if I seem ignorant, though! = Thanks for understanding =]

      I am pretty sure it is her camera remote since a lot of us bloggers use tripods to take our outfit photos

      • Oh right, ok- that’s what I originally thought, but then it looked too thin to be a remote =P But now on closer inspection, I can see the little red button- thanks!

        • Hahaha, not rude at all for asking! V is right, it my remote. I try to hide it, but it can definitely make my hands look a little deformed. :|

  • 4bakers

    Love the belt and the shoes with that burgundy/camel combo! I’m also going to have to pick up some of the nail polish – looks like a perfect color for this fall!

  • Love these colors on you, Chloe! I’m so ready to pull out my fall pieces too. Will definitely check out that sweater – and thanks for the tip about sizing up!

  • i have never really loved fall colors on me…especially burgundy & forest green but i just bought my first pair of burgundy skinnies! excited to pair them with anything camel after seeing this post! thanks for the inspiration girl! i may have to grab that clutch too! GORGE!
