OOTD: Casual Elegance

I am taking a day off today, so I slept in. (till 9 am.) If you would let me sleep without a schedule I would totally dose in my deep dream state for 9 hours or more every night. But guess what I usually get? About 6-7. So whenever I get a chance, I'd sleep like you wouldn't believe. 
Kids have to tread through snow to go trick or treating tonight, but at least it won't be 20 degrees out there. With the sun shining full force, I was pretty comfortable with my outfit today. 
Notice how I wear my J.Crew Shawl-collar cardigan as a shawl today by buttoning the openings outwards by themselves? I am pretty happy with my invention this morning. I wanted to showcase the beautiful Gap blouse and Ann Taylor leopard print belt, so I didn't want to button the sweater. You can do this with any double breasted trench/sweater. See it worn buttoned up here, and opened here.
Outfit Details:
Gap blouse (xs, buy here, purchased in store for $18)
Gap outlet pants (size 1, purchased a few months ago)
J.Crew Shawl-Collar Cardigan (xs, old, purchased here)
Ann Taylor belt (buy here)
Ann Taylor pumps (old, buy similar here)
Ann Taylor necklace (old, buy similar here)

Happy Halloween, Everyone!
