I love this cute mom-on-the-go outfit. I picked up the LOFT Autumn Anorak and Vintage Broken In Tee when they were having their Friends & Family sale last month. I knew they’d be perfect for fall. This jacket is super lightweight and unlined, so it’s great for the in-between weather that I’m SURE is coming. Ahem. It is coming, right??
Right now LOFT is having an AMAZING Labor Day sale. Unfortunately, neither of these items are included. Ba-dum-chhh… Sorry about that! But it’s still worth checking out. I have my eye on this cute “rusted ruby” Sweatshirt Tee, and this Mixstripe Pocket Blouse.
But back to TODAY’s outfit…
I love the quilted detail on the back of the anorak.
I decided to show my black quilted clutch in this outfit because I like how it draws out the black from the shoes. It would be perfect for going out to lunch with a friend, but of course I could carry a larger bag if I was going to be out all day. The clutch was a freebie when I placed a Rebecca Minkoff order last spring, so I can’t link to it, but any black clutch would be nice with this — or a larger black bag.
And again, the shoes. The more I wear these, the more I love them.
I wore my Arabesque Chandeliers and layered two delicate necklaces. I like having one to fill the U-neck and another to hang down over the t-shirt. Wearing a long pendant supposedly elongates the line of the body and makes you look slimmer, as does leaving a jacket unzipped to create that vertical column down the front of the body. I guess all those episodes I watched of What Not To Wear are finally coming in handy! Ha!
This is such an easy outfit to copy — jeans, solid tee in a fall color, khaki or olive anorak or utility jacket, leopard flats or another neutral flat, and some accessories. Boom! You probably have most of these pieces in your closet already.

If you do have fall shopping you want to do, last night I posted my Favorite Finds from the Nordstrom End-of-Summer Clearance Sale. Many of these items can be worn well into fall. It’s a great time to pick up a few new pieces. And don’t miss the $100 Nordstrom Giveaway in our kick-off post!

I almost forgot to put my Fashion Friday linky up. OOOPS! Here it is. TGIF!
