Now we all know that the LBD (little black dress) is one of those closet staples that every woman should own, but I think another staple that doesn't seem to get as much notoriety, is the little black skirt. Admittedly, I didn't even own a little black skirt (let's call it the LBS) until last year, but I can confidently say that it really is a closet staple. Whether pencil, skater, or even faux leather, a little black skirt is a great base, especially for a chic fall or winter look.

I pulled mine out with plans to dress it up with pretty blouses and sweaters for the holidays, and as I was mixing and matching I fell in love with its versatility. I was planning on a pretty blouse and sparkly jewels, but love the casual look it took on with a soft pullover and cozy sweater vest. I snagged this one from Marshall's last year, but found this one from Forever 21 that's very similar. (And only $10.90!) They both have a velveteen pattern that gives it a luxe look, but the one from Forever is FLORAL! Swoon. 

I got a lot of comments on this vest the last time I wore it and if you don't have luck at Nordstrom Rack, it looks like Kohl's has the same one! Shop the look below for details!

It's officially Fall and while the weather may not know it, I'm still determined to at least dress like it's Fall. I told you I got new ankle boots from Nordstrom Rack this weekend and I couldn't wait to wear them! They are a gorgeous taupey-grey, have a cute little V dip on both sides, crisscross buckles (that I may have just now realized are supposed to crisscross, although I kind of prefer them not crossed anyway) and to top it all off--they have the most perfect heel height that makes them easy to dress up or down. They're really just cool boots, especially paired with distressed denim and a comfy knit for a touch of softness. 

This sweater vest (with pockets!) was also a Nordstrom Rack find. Seriously, run to Nordstrom Rack ASAP. This one is so cozy and has a really great effortless vibe. It's the perfect thing for transitioning into sweater weather, whether paired with a simple tee or layered over a summer dress. It's all about those Fall layers after all and I really love a good neutral layered look.

Thanks for reading!
