On Saturday, I put this outfit together for a trip to the farmer’s market. It was a cool, crisp day and I spent the morning sipping coffee and perusing Pinterest.

I was inspired to incorporate a scarf into a casual outfit, so I grabbed this coral and white striped infinity scarf. I knew I wanted to wear jeans, so I picked my oldest, comfiest pair since it was a Saturday, after all. I love khaki and denim together, so I grabbed this khaki jacket out of the back of my closet and finished off the look with a simple white tee.

After much debate, I decided on my brown Vionic sandals. I thought ballet flats might be cuter, but they seemed kind of fussy for the farmer’s market.

I was only out and about for an hour before I ditched the jacket and rolled up my jeans. It was warmer than I’d expected! This is why I love layering. Once I removed the jacket, I was comfortable for the rest of the day, and the scarf kept the simple outfit stylish.

The belt is from Gap; I picked it up a few weeks ago. I haven’t worn a belt in YEARS but it seems necessary with the “front tuck” that’s working well for me lately, and I like how it ties into the brown from the sandals.

Hi, sleepy doggie!

I’m obsessed with this coral striped scarf by Calvin Klein. I picked it up on a whim at Nordstrom Rack back in the spring, and I love the casual weave and the fact that it’s not too bulky.

The earrings are from Studio Jewel. I love these. They go with just about everything.

Okay, someone needs to use an iron. Just pay no never mind to those wrinkles.

I grabbed my brown Fossil satchel and added a gold and enamel bracelet, and that’s it! My toenail polish is OPI Over The Taupe.


Okay, so we went a little bit crazy with the pictures! I clearly love this outfit. It’s so simple, yet I felt pulled together and stylish all day long. Score!
