Work With What You've Got


Romper: Better B., $30 // Vest: Target, $10 // Necklace: Nomads (local shop), $10 // Shoes: Kenneth Cole, thrifted, $3
While looking at the forecast yesterday (80 degrees and sunny), I got to thinking. Though it's not the crisp fall weather I'm yearning for, it is absolutely gorgeous and perfect. So rather than being delusional and wearing tights and a scarf, I wore this temperature-appropriate outfit and took a nice walk downtown. This romper is something I bought over the summer. I was really excited about it at first but then only wore it one time. Same goes for the shoes. In terms of both weather and clothing items, I felt like the theme of the day was making the most of what you've got. I should remember to do that more often.

You look amazing in this outfit! Your romper is adorable, and I love the shoes paired with it. I need to stop being delusional about clothing for the current climate as well....wearing tights and blazers at ridiculously inappropriate 80 degree temperatures!!! :)

you look fabulous! I'm definitely one of those delusional people wishing for fall- granted New England weather is notoriously unpredictable. I love your shoes!

Lexie said...

i go back and forth between dressing weather appropriate and dressing "seasonally appropriate." though i suppose technically it's still summer!
