From one Indiana University grad to another, this month’s Style Soulmate is Jessica from What I Wore (here). 

Because how can you go wrong with a utility jacket, a little black dress, and ankle boots?

The answer?

You can’t. The oversized scarf keeps it interesting and allows you to mix up the look again and again. Add in some tights when the temperatures finally cool down, and you can keep this look going for a looooonnng time.

So go Jessica, go me, and go Hoosiers (that’s our school’s nickname)!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • You know the Little Black Dress, but have you seen how dedicated I have been to this Little Green Jacket. So versatile and a great color for everyone!
  • And pockets, folks. Pockets galore.
  • These scallop ballet flats are so good that I couldn’t have just one color, so the beige pair beat out the black!
  • How many of you watch The Case of JonBenet Ramsey this week? They kept showing previews of it during all the football games I was watching, so I watched it…and was suckered in like the sucker that I am. I get a bit obsessive over news stories and then have to read EVERYTHING about them…so this was great for me, since it was nicely packaged into two shows. If you missed it, you can check it out here on CBS.com!
  • This is probably the most actual TV I’ve watched in a LONG time (minus football games), but this is too good not to share. I had seen the trailer all summer for the show This Is Us and was instantly hooked by what seemed like a great bunch of stories. Watch it guys, WATCH. IT. So good, so heartfelt/real, and so emotional (I cried during a part). Again, if you missed it, you can check it out here on NBC.com (Mom, watch it!)!
  • This weekend we’re going to a friend’s birthday bonfire, watching football, and prepping/packing for our trip to Europe that starts next weekend! Cannnnnn’t wait!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

I am loooooving all the fall shoe trends this year. Loving them.

Lace-up flats, suede heels, ankle boots, loafers, and more importantly, block heels!

Mainly, because I’m the biggest klutz in the world, and the more stability I can get from my heels the better off I’ll be.

Correction…the better off the world will be. Safety first and style second, y’all! Luckily though with block heels, you get the beauty of both!

Check out all the below block heels for under $75…I think I need them all!

As much as I love style, I love comfort and utility of clothing more.

For example, skirts should have pockets. Dresses should have pockets. Purses should have pockets. And coats, jackets, and vests should have endless pockets.

That’s why I love that utility-style or cargo-style vests remain in style. Perfect for slipping your cell phone or a pack of gum or your shopping list into and going hands free, but still managing to look pulled together and stylish.

Because as much as we say pain is beauty…it really should be utility is beauty. Except when it comes to cargo shorts…because those are awful! ;)
