Transition Time

Today is the second & final post in my collaboration with eBay (see my summer post here) & I'm sharing two new outfits that are perfect for our current transitional weather.  Because it's not yet cold enough to require a heavy coat, my solution is to wear classic layers like these casual but polished looks.  The best part is that I was able to find all of these pieces in varying sizes still available via other listings on eBay so you can shop each of them below!  

We all know that a classic trench coat is a wardrobe staple - and this cape is such a unique twist on a timeless piece.  I was thrilled when I saw that the original price was nearly $800 and I was able to get it for under $100!  I styled it with an oversized crisp button-down and these comfortable skinny jeans for a modern & sophisticated take on fall basics.  P.S. these black pointed pumps are available in every size and under $35 (for real suede) + they are unbelievably comfortable!

What I'm wearing:
J. Crew Collection Cape Trench c/o eBay, J. Crew Endless Shirt c/o eBay, Madewell Jeans c/o eBay, 
MIA Suede Pumps c/o eBay, ASOS clutch (similar), BaubleBar earrings, c/o BaubleBar ring
Bracelets: Madewell & LOFT (similar here & here), Lips: L'Oreal Eva's Red + Maybelline Signature Scarlet

A wool blazer layered over a fine-knit cashmere hoodie is the ideal mix of structure & ease and provides just the right amount of warmth for the cool fall temperatures.  This outfit would also be great for the weekend when styled with sneakers & a bucket bag.  I've mentioned it before, but I believe that cashmere is something I find to be worth the investment during this season - however, that doesn't mean you have to pay full price!  eBay is a great place to find brand new cashmere sweaters & scarves for a fraction of the retail cost.

What I'm wearing:
J. Crew Regent Blazer c/o eBay, J. Crew Cashmere Hoodie c/o eBay, Madewell Jeans c/o eBay, 
J. Crew Slingback Pumps c/o eBay, Anthropologie Clutch c/o eBay, Madewell ring (similar) & earrings, Lips: Rimmel London Just So
