Black and Gray Tunic and Leggings

Here’s another #tbt (Throwback Thursday) post. It’s an outfit I just wore last week, but the picture was taken last fall. Sometimes my┬áposts-to-pictures ratio gets out of whack and I find myself with a surplus. And since this I still a look I like, I’m sharing it today.

black and gray

Top: ecoSkin
Leggings: Victoria’s Secret
Boots: DSW
Purse: Susan Nicole

I got this tunic when I was in New York last year. It’s by ecoSkin, a “green” clothing company from California that uses environmentally friendly fabrics and strives to be earth-conscious and minimize their carbon footprint. I’ve seen people wear this as a top, but I think they might have been shorter than me. For me, this is the perfect tunic, so I paired it with black leggings and tall boots.

eco-friendly outfit

My boots are half pleather and half neoprene (scuba material) so they have a nice, snug fit without being tight. I’m always on the lookout for great vegan shoes and boots–surprisingly, there are lots (just look into my shoes closet and you’ll see).

I won–yes won–this amazing Susan Nicole bag at last year’s Walk for Farm Animals. Of all the raffle items, this was my favorite and as luck would have it, I won! Susan Nicole makes an amazing line of vegan leather, eco-conscious handbags.

comfy fall look

I do love the comfort of leggings and the look of boots, even though I’m not one of the people who can’t wait for fall. I mourn the end of summer each year. But fall is a good time to start plotting a winter getaway!

Blazer and Handkerchief Top

Here’s a thrifty look that’s polished enough for work: A blazer and top with black skinny jeans and boots.

I picked up the top and blazer at a clothing swap and paired them with my black skinny jeans and a pair of faux leather booties I recently bought.

The icing on the cake: This fantastic vegan leather bag by Susan Nicole. Can you believe I won it in a raffle? I wrote about the event (Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals) and blogged about the bag in a previous post, but I still can’t believe I won this! It’s very luxurious.

Blazers really pull an outfit together. They’re great with pants and skirts, and perfect for cool, air conditioned offices. I love them and I promise to wear them more often!

the top, revealed

The top, which reminds me of a pattern you might see on a fancy scarf, matched really well with my crow necklace. My friend Cheryl (not Cheryl Crow–ha!) gave this to me and it’s a perfect piece for this outfit. Plus, I have two special crow friends who stop by for treats. They know I’m a fan!
