Perfect Fall Day (and outfit)

This was definitely my idea of the perfect fall day in NYC. I started out this fine Sunday meeting up with two of my fellow NYC bloggers @lifestylesbylauren and @carolinestfrancis at Brunch spot called The Butcher's Daughter (don't worry, I'll definitely be sharing photos of my meal in my next 'Restaurant Diaries'). After brunch we walked around the West Village and the weather was absolutely PERFECT. You know that super rare weather where it's cold enough to wear a sweater but warm enough to wear a skirt? Yeah, that weather. 
I can't get enough of this skirt I picked up from work from Brooks Brothers' younger line, Red Fleece. This line is more affordable and modern, but it has as similar quality and craftsmanship to traditional Brooks Brothers. What I love is that it is long/appropriate enough to wear to a corporate job, but you can also fold in the top by one or a couple of inches to make it a tad shorter for out of office activities (which is what I did in these photos). You may have noticed that I wore this sweater on my blog before but in a different color! That's because it is so amazing that, yes, I bought it in two colors. I think the puffy sleeves add such a unique touch, yet it is comfy and simple enough to wear in so many different ways. Below, I linked it in the maroon color but here is a link to the same sweater from a different retailer that has a bunch more colors and sizes available! Side note: I recommend sizing 1-2 sizes down in the sweater - it runs really big! I usually am a small-medium but purchased an extra-small.
