No one notices or cares, but I’m tired of wearing black on the bottom of every outfit this winter. I typically reach for black tights and boots or black jeans because they’re flattering and easy to work with. But this year I want to test my style a bit and try new things. We’ll see how long that lasts.
I originally wanted a pair of dark brown or gray booties, but saw this type of boot enough on Instagram and Pinterest to make me want to give it a try. I think they look better with bare legs and sundresses, but it’s still too early in the year to pretend it’s warm enough outside for that. I’m looking at you, popular fashion bloggers. Wearing sundresses late February to keep up with trends. Aren’t you cold?
I like them, but I think I’ve managed to make my legs look even shorter with the cuffed ankle hem. I maybe won’t wear this look again but instead buy a pair of nude tights so I can start wearing these boots with dresses and skirts. I’m just not a pants fan.
Even though it was 4 degree Celsius, 39 degrees Fahrenheit outside, I was warm in this plaid sweater. It’s extremely thick and has enough draped fabric to bundle up in.
One of my main objectives for this blog is to stretch my wardrobe as much as I can to show that you do not need to constantly buy new items to create outfits.
Darker sundresses can become great layering pieces, such as this one from Ruche. It was a flirty, thin dress for the summer, and is now appropriate for fall under a sweater. I may even wear it with my pixie pants and a heavy cardigan and scarf when the temperatures really drop. This is its third time on the blog, why not add a fourth? Functionality. Aw yes.
My mom gave me this necklace for Easter and I absolutely love it (thanks, Mom!) because it looks like my little Wesley when he has his full coat in the winter. He recently got his summer cut so he’s a short-haired boy.
I love this little guy so much.
Blood was shed while rolling up the sleeves on this jacket. I sliced my left middle finger open last night and didn’t realize I was bleeding all over myself while struggling to roll up my sleeves. If you look closely on the right sleeve, you may see my internal fluids. Cute.
Have a great Monday (blech) and thank you for reading
