Fall/Winter Essentials – Black Booties + a Striped Sweater (& Link Up)

October 25, 2018

Some days it’s all about the essentials. Okay, lots of days it’s all about the essentials! And here I have on a few J.Jill must haves for fall and winter: a tunic sweater, relaxed jeans, and versatile black leather ankle boots.

This post is a collaboration with J.Jill.

Textured Striped Knit Tunic

The versatile top is one that I know I’ll be reaching for again and again this fall and winter.  Made of 100% soft cotton, this relaxed tunic style sweater is super comfortable.  I’m wearing the black with the grey heather, but also check out the two other pretty combinations.  Machine washable! (Yay!)  Long enough to work well with leggings!

Frye Veronica Boots

Everyone needs a pair of classic Frye leather boots, right? These high quality iconic moto boots are a pair that I’ll be wearing for years!

Weekender Jeans

Just super comfortable, relaxed, and versatile weekend jeans!

Blue Lapis Pendant

You might remember this pretty piece from this post. Such a stunner that I wanted to wear it again right away!

    Very nice, casual outfit. That’s the sort of thing I wear most of the time. I used to have a pair of boots like that (long time ago) and now I’m really wishing I had kept them.

    When is a striped tunic ever the wrong answer? Never, that’s when. Essentials are the best and these are good ones. I’m all about a comfortable but cute look and this encompasses both. XO

    I mean booties are essentials:). I love yours. I bought my black booties early too and I have worn them a couple of times already.

    You styled it perfectly with these adorable jeans and the striped top.
