Daisylace Crop | Ruffle Sweater | Cult Gaia Dupe | Valentino Heels (duper here and here

I’m always on the hunt for pants that I can wear to work, that aren’t jeans and that transition well. When I came across these at J.Crew, I just knew I had to have them. I’ve already worn them a few times, from work to a dinner with my family. I find they are so versatile which is important when I am buying clothing. I love that that I can dress them up if I wanted to, or keep it casual like I did here. In addition to being on the hunt for crops, I have been in love with just about every ruffle sweater, dress or top that I come across. I saw this ruffle sweater and thought about the many things I could pair it with this fall. Not only did it arrive and it was so cute, but it is so soft you just want to wear it with everything. You’ll see me pairing it several different ways this upcoming fall.

I chose to dress this outfit down with a perfect look-a-like of the Cult Gaia bag that I found here. I went with the large size but think I could have been just as happy with the small (they’re basically the same price). If you want a different variation of the traditional bamboo look, I found a look-a-like in black and white, see here (under $30). I also found these Valentino look-a-likes which I recommend. I wear my Valentino sandals all the time. I feel like I definitely got my money worth out of them so to speak. They are the perfect height and go with nearly everything and make for easy walking.
