If I had to pick an outfit that represented the perfect fall basics, this would be it. Distressed skinny jeans, comfy tunic-like sweater, cognac booties, fun earrings, and a pop of something (leopard clutch in this case). Not to mention the perfect blend of neutrals. I found this sweater in store this past week on a whim and couldn’t resist – the ‘oatmeal’ speckled blend is a perfect mix of browns, grey, and a hint of black. It’s a lightweight material also, so easily layered over a long sleeve striped tee or throw a vest over top. The mock neck also adds an extra touch. If black jeans aren’t your jam, switch them out for dark grey, burgundy, or a dark wash blue denim – all work well! Heck throw on grey or black booties also – they all work because this sweater is awesome like that. 😁

**On a side note – did you guys know Old Navy is separating from the GAP and Banana Republic (and other brands owned by GAP)? This was mentioned to me by the sales associate at Old Navy last week. I knew GAP had been failing for quite awhile (honestly.. they just need someone to step up their design studio like Old Navy has), but I was shocked to hear they aren’t just closing the company altogether. Instead, since Old Navy has been so successful, they are separating them out completely from the other brands as their own company…. to allow them to “thrive separately.” I’m not incredibly business savvy, so I’m sure there is a good reason (perhaps for stock purposes), but I’m still a little confused by the venture. Banana and GAP will then be represented by their own new line. I guess I’m a little frustrated as a customer because all I was hearing from the sales associate was “you may have to apply for a new credit card” (I have a Banana card only), similarly to when The Limited sold out. I like that my rewards and payments are all kept together. So we will see. As a customer, I hope they keep it as seamless as possible, especially if it’s the best venture for all brands.
