What Wives Wear Link Up #24 - Anniversary Edition!

Welcome to the
What Wives Wear Link Up!
Week 24
Brian and I went shopping at the outlets during our day date over a month ago and I am finally able to wear some of it. It has been so hot this fall, that I've been wearing shorts and tees well into October! We had a little break from the rain this weekend and now its been pouring, spitting and just dreary since Sunday. Yuck. Luckily, Saturday night I was able to wear a light burgundy sweater with leather elbow patches that I found (and fell in love with) at J. Crew Outlet. I have been looking for a sweater with elbow patches for awhile and when I saw it... I knew I hadda have it. It was even on sale! 


Here is a back view of the outfit, this gives you a better look at the elbow patches. I really can't wait to style this sweater all kinds of way this fall, I will be wearing it at least once a week... THAT is how much I am in love with it. :)


I also got my hair done on Saturday! I decided to go darker and she added some caramel highlights and also some chocolate highlights. I really love what she did with my hair and she did a great job straightening it, too! I also found it so funny that they use The Wet Brush at my hair salon now!! I just bought one for Autumn a few weeks ago and now I just have to get one for myself! 

Recently I purchased several pairs of gold earrings from Charming Charlie and this was the largest gold pair I purchased. I love their size, but I wouldn't wear this large of an earring for the day-time... but, for going out they were perfect!


I paired this sweater with neutrals... a black fitted skirt from Express and brown wedge boots. For a necklace, I wore a BR tassel necklace that has some green... I didn't want to look like Christmas, so the green necklace was the only green I added. 


I really love how the arm patch shows up in this photo... ahhh. :)


It seems tassels are even more the rage this fall then they were last year this time when I got my first tassel bracelet. I really need to learn how to make some tassel jewelry for myself,  I think it'd be fun. :)


In this photo you can see some of the highlights in my hair and also how this fitted skirt flares out a bit at the bottom.



My camel Tory is my go to bag during the fall.

Blazers are so chic especially when worn

This blazer will definitely draw attention.

Sherell balances out the look with sleek black pants,

and black open-toed shoes.

Ariel is right on trend with her red & black plaid jacket.
