Sweet Parrish Place Style ( Vol. 1)

Hey all!  Welcome to my Weekly What I Wore Wednesday post!  Only, you might have noticed that I changed the name of the post to Sweet Parrish Place Style.  Same post I do every week- different title.  So let’s get on with the show!  Every week, I take pictures of my outfits and join the WIWW link party with The Pleated Poppy.  These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion.  I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways.  I wear the clothes I own forever, but I usually don’t wear any item in the exact same way more than once or twice.

I wore this outfit on casual Friday, but I also had a work meeting that afternoon, so I was a tad more dressy than I usually am on casual Friday.  I think this outfit looked casual yet still professional.

Boyfriend cardigan- American Apparel
Striped shirt- The Limited (old) similar

These booties are a new purchase I made for fall, and I love them!  When we were shopping (in Pittsburgh), I had a really hard time finding any black shoes I really loved.  I didn’t have anything specific in mind, only that I needed something new that was black.  These are kind of in between a really dark navy and a distressed looking black color.  I think they fit the bill.  And I like the heel height.  They are a wedge, in case you can’t tell. 
grey jeans, black and white stripes, blue scarf, grey booties
Sperry Top-sider Booties- Macy’s
Scarf- Urban Outfitter’s (last winter) similar

I bought this skirt last spring for a steal.  I have wanted a red skirt just like this for years.  You can see how I styled it in the spring here.  This outfit inspired by this pin

Red Skirt- Gabriel Brothers- similar
Chambray shirt- Urban Outfitters (sold out) similar
Leopard flats (old) similar

A gold tassel necklace was another thing on my fall shopping list.  I found this one on clearance at Loft Outlet. 

Tassel necklace- Loft (unavailable) similar
Cream shirt with flower detail- JCrew (old)

I almost forgot I had these pants, don’t know why, they are hanging right in my closet.  So I thought I would wear them before winter.  This was a day at work. 


I like the lace back on this cream colored sweater.  This was in a pile of stuff my daughter was getting rid of, so I swiped it.  I believe it is from American Eagle.  I like Sperry’s for fall.

Grey Sperry’s- similar

This is what I wore to a casual dinner with the kids on Saturday evening.  Very comfortable outfit.  I love to wear stuff like this.    You can see another way I styled this striped sweater here.


I will reiterate, yet again, how much I love these booties!  They are my most favorite shoe that I have owned in years.  Not only do I love the color, I love the height of the heel.  I love the cut outs.  They look great with no socks, but I also think they are super fun with socks.  I paired them with red socks for this outfit.  And I love the look.  What do you think of them with socks?

Striped cardigan- Loft (old) I love this one too
Black Leggings- Urban Outfitters (sold out) similar here and here
Red Scarf- Gap (old)
Bag- Sole Society (sold out) similar
Elephant Tassel Bag Charm- Furbish Studio
Booties- Nordstrom

As recently as last Fall and Winter, I would have never in a million years worn black tights with an outfit like this one below.  But now, I think it looks fresh and trendy.  I love the combination!  What do you think of it?  I did receive several compliments on it at work.  You can see how I wore this green skirt in the summer here


I bought this sweater last spring at Gap, on clearance for $3.97.  Now, that is a deal!  It was originally almost $50.  This is the first time I have worn it.  The infinity scarf is also from Gap last winter.

This outfit inspired by this pin.  I wasn’t totally happy with this outfit after I actually had it on, but Oh well, it is horrible I guess.  The black ankle pants are new that I bought for fall. 

Black pants- The Limited
Black Pumps- Ralph Lauren (old) similar here

In the picture above I am wearing black pumps, but I’m not gonna lie, I wore the zebra loafers with it to work.  I just put the pumps on for the picture.  Hehe.  I did like it better with the pumps, but there was just no way I was wearing those to work.  I walk around, A LOT!

Zebra Striped flat- brown only available
