It's Been Awhile

Dress: Old Navy, $8 // Necklace: F21, $9 // Scarf: Thrifted, $6 // Boots: alice + olivia for Payless 


I feel like I've lost my rhythm for taking daily outfit photos. As others have mentioned on their blogs, the time change has kind of thrown me for a loop, especially as someone who tends to take pictures after work rather than before. Anyway, I'm trying to get back on a track, so here's a good old-fashioned outfit post.

After an unseasonably cool October, the beginning of November has been oddly warm. Hence, all the skin. This is what I wore yesterday: a simple grey frock (that I almost gave away awhile back and am so glad I didn't), a purple scarf worn as a belt, a layered chain necklace to add a little glamor to my day and white boots. I love the grey and purple together and the way a scarf (rather than an actual belt) maintains the soft, laid-back feel of the look.

yeah, i feel the same way. it gets dark so insanely early and it's so weird and hard to adjust!

i also really like the gray and purple and the scarf rather than a regular belt. very nice.

i love girls who can put together an awesome look with cheap pieces. anyone can drop tons of cash on trendy things, but it takes real style and fashion sense to put together outfits on a budget. college is making me become more creative with fashion (:

I love the idea of having a scarf as a belt. :) And it's so unusually warm here that I actually wore sandals today...

Dylana said...

That dress is stunning! So versatile! I feel the same way about the time change, and have scheduled outfit picture sessions at the weirdest times during the day! It can be a pain, but all worth it in the end!

Love it! I wonder if I can still find those boots?

Thanks, everyone!

The boots are from last Spring, so they're no longer available in stores or online. Maybe you'll get lucky and find some secondhand!
