In my most recent thredUp order, I got this sweater and these booties. They were the main reasons I placed the order and couldn't be more pleased when they arrived. I've been really trying to only get leather or suede shoes lately (apart from a few fabric flats, but who cares about those). They wear better and I think they are more comfortable. These Naturalizer beauties are no exception! But what really made me feel confident was the top. It is loose and flowy with the added mixed media interest. Between the top and my necklace I was feeling good all day long!

Today Laura from Laura Aime Vous is co-hosting. The first time she commented on my blog I did a double take. Her email showed up as my first and middle name so of course I needed to email her and tell her how awesome it was! She has amazing long legs and looks good in everything and has lots of great beauty tips, too. You need to check out her Friday Links each week!

  9. This top is so cute, the back is a nice surprise and the striped pattern isn't overdone and you could wear this easily for business casual. It also looks great with the red pants, I am sure a lot of other colors would work, too!

  16. Every piece you are wearing here needs to get to my closet. I am actually carrying a similar clutch in my post today.

    I am drooling over those shoes - so fun and unique. Great thrift find. The mixed media tunic is super cute, too.

  24. AH! I almost bought this top the other day but it wasn't actually on clearance (even though I found it on the clearance rack and I swear it was on clearance the last time I was in the store). Did you see that ThredUp is currently offering free shipping? It's going to be hard to resist buying something every day!

  36. Such cute shoes! I'm the same way with my shoe purchases these days--they're really not worth buying if they're not made from quality materials. I'm actually on the hunt for some two tone riding boots and almost bought the Target version, but I'm holding out for a leather pair from Santa :)

  37. Cute outfit Laura, I love the button down shirt and the extended train of it too.
