Some days I glam up with bright colors, and some days I keep it simple with a look of black on black on black.  This is what I wore last Saturday for a day of errand running that started with a quick coffee date with Karl at our favorite coffee place – Vigilante.  It was one of those perfect fall days that has enough of a chill to warrant a coat but warm enough that when in the sunshine you can enjoy the outdoors.

I mentioned this sweater in this past Saturday's Weekend Reads. It's not thick, it's like a lightweight stretchy chenille which is great indoors or when worn under another layer.  I like the tunic length and that the sides have split making it easy to French or half tuck the sweater which I did here.  The turtleneck is big but not tight or bulky.  I recommend sizing down.  Reviews say that it pills; I haven't had that issue yet.  When you dry it, don't hang dry as it will stretch longer. It comes in three colors, sizes up to 4X, and is less than $40.

With it are the cabi Pivot Joggers which I featured previously in this casual Friday outfit.  I wore these all the time in early fall with sneakers and bare ankles; I've worn them with heels.  But neither are practical for a cold weekend morning.  I like the look with a slim lace-up boot like these.  Especially if your joggers are a bit cropped, this is a way to keep your ankles warm without ruining the line of the clothing.  These boots are waterproof and lined and roomy enough that I have them on with a pair of thick merino socks.

And the jacket, I wore it before in this review of the Universal Standard moto jacket and have worn it several other times on Instagram Stories and in real life.  I really love this jacket.  It's buttery soft, the hardware and details are just flashy enough, it's made with such quality and care.  It's soft enough that I can push up the sleeves, roomy enough to zip up over my large bust, and relaxed enough of a fit that I can fit it over sweaters but it doesn't look sloppy over a simple tank or dress.  If you'd like to try Rent the Runway Unlimited, use code RTRDC22F051 to get $100 off your first month.

  1. Normally I don’t like all black outfits but I think this outfit looks so great on you. You look fashionable and age appropriate at the same time. It also is a very achievable and realistic outfit – something that can be recreated comfortably. So many bloggers look like they are just modeling the outfits (and don’t really wear them in real life) but we know you are truly wearing those outfits and they are part of your style.

    1. I learned good skin isn’t what you buy. Lots of water, enough sleep, a few oils in your diet, and let your skin breathe without makeup on it as much as possible is better than any fancy bottle of serum! Thank you!

  2. Lol! I’m doing a similar look today for errands. This jacket really is virtually perfect. Wondering about a waterproof treatment though; how it might affect the leather.

    1. You know, I’ve never tried waterproofing a leather jacket. I’d worry it would affect the softness of the fabric but not sure what products they have for such a garment! IF you do if please come back and let me know how it went and what you used!

    1. They are! I got them from Zappos, one day I decided to wear them and came home and regretted it. I didn’t think they were that great. And then I bought the Sorels and loved the chunky heel and regretted this purchase even more, thinking it was redundant to have two pairs of black lace-up boots. But now? I wear both of them an equal amount and quite often. The La Canadiennes are so easy to put on since they have a side zip and can custom fit over thick or thin socks thanks to the laces. And they’re insulated and super comfy when being on my feet a long time and more sleek… they get a lot of wear and now I’m glad I kept them!
