Sunday Style Update

College girl wardrobe staple #2? Cowgirl boots.

Not only are they essential for all you southern sorority ladies out there (tailgates, obviously), these boots are perfect for jazzing up a casual outfit or as a stand-in for your favorite brown leather riding boots. Lately, I've really had a thing for wearing them under boot-cut jeans. I guess this whole southern college thing is rubbing off on me?

I wore this outfit for an interview earlier today but with a forest-green Burberry jacket and no scarf. Subbed out the jacket for this fun scarf post-interview, curled my hair out of pure boredom... and here we are. I'll probably throw on some cords and wear it to chapter tonight, too. This outfit is undoubtedly one of my go-tos for class, work, family dinners... the list goes on.

I'll let you in on a little secret - I work at a resale store called Clothes Mentor. And before I worked at Clothes Mentor, I shopped almost exclusively at resale and consignment stores in my hometown, Portland OR. Some things I do believe ought to be bought new, but most clothing items can be found in nearly pristine condition for less than 50% of their original retail price at a consignment or resale shop. Try it. You'll soon find that the vast majority of my outfits are composed of items from solid/high-end brands that I snagged at a much lower price.

I'll hop off my soap box now -- Here's what I'm wearing:

Boots - Ariat from Boot Barn/ Jeans - Citizens of Humanity, from Buffalo Exchange / Sweater - LOFT, from Buffalo Exchange (similar). A Piko top would look cute with this too! / Scarf - mud-pie / Watch/Bracelets - Michael Kors (thanks, Bryan), David Yurman, Kate Spade (gifts from family) / Earrings - Francesca's (similar)
