While we know what lies ahead (read: snow, snow, and more snow), we can't help but feel a little giddy on days like today, when it's sunny and thrillingly warm, and you can traipse around in ballet flats without risking frozen tootsies. Which is why we're such fans of Lauren Mathieu's late-fall look — we love the contrast of a smart navy blazer and cheery yellow pants, topped off with animal-print flats and a rugged leather belt. Below, we've picked some favorite pieces to help you copy this simple-but-chic look.
