I’m back with another outfit post featuring a few of my favorite items of clothing. You’ve seen most of these pieces many times on the blog. I wear my faux fur jacket because it’s warm, lightweight and fun too. I often choose the little ruffly leopard print scarf because it always seems to fall just the right way around my neck. New to the blog are the jeans, shoes, and earrings, but each piece is quickly becoming a favorite too.
I’ve worn my new Hudson skinny mid-rise jeans many times since I bought them last month. I’m happy to say they were an intelligent purchase. This is my first pair of dark wash denim skinnies, and honestly I can see why everyone wears them. Not only are they flattering but they’re also really, really comfortable. Seriously, they’re as comfortable as sweat pants, but much better looking.
I must say a word about these booties. I wasn’t sure when I bought them if they were fabulous or fabulously tacky, but at $15 how could I say no? Yes, they were thrifted from my local Goodwill. They’re a size 10, which means they’re a good half size too big. Maybe that’s the trick to finding comfortable boots, because even with the almost 3″ heels these are some of the most comfortable heeled boots I own. I love the pointy toes and the skinny heel.
An now…the earrings. I received these as a gift from Teri Aman who sells her beautiful line of jewelry at Sverj.com. All the stones she uses are natural and the metals are gold-plated silver. These emerald green statement earrings are made of chalcedony and freshwater pearl. Come back next week to win a pair! Yes, I’ll be hosting a give away and I can’t wait.

- Splendid drape neck jersey blouse (This one is similar.)
- My favorite faux fur jacket from Nordstroms (this one looks really similar!)
- My new “Nico” mid-rise skinny jeans by Hudson
- Leopard print scarf thrifted from The Buffalo Exchange (This one is faux fur, but it has a similar feel.)
- Leopard print booties thrifted from The Goodwill (This pair by Elie Tahari look almost the same.)
How does something become a favorite? I think it’s a combination of elements. My favorite clothes are all comfortable and versatile but they’re not always super basic. Usually there’s something quirky and fun about each piece. I also have a terror of frump. If anything even suggests frumpiness I can’t wear it. So all my most-worn clothes are a little sexy and trendy too.
What makes a piece of clothing a favorite for you?
