Fall Layering: Mad for Plaid + Denim

I have been feeling under the weather this week, gravitating toward comfy pieces with soft textures when getting dressed.  This time of year the weather is also getting consistently cold, windy, and wet (not to mention dark in the afternoons with daylight savings).  This combination of forces creates the need for cozy fall layers, preferably with rich colors like burgundy, cognac, and navy.  Today's outfit is a great example of casual fall layering with a couple of key pieces from Conversation Pieces Boutique: this denim and flannel shirt is as comfy as a sweatshirt or pajamas, and this statement necklace adds a touch of classy pearl and gold.  I paired this top and necklace with a puffer vest, cream corduroy skinnies, cognac knee boots, and a versatile bucket bag for a casual work day.

Stay tuned next week for an exciting giveaway!
