Layering up for fall


The weather is officially like 10 degrees from freezing overnight, which means when I get up my house is like a refrigerator (we don’t control our heat so it’s not on yet!). I may have gone overkill with the layers yesterday but the cold weather got to me.

Looking back on this outfit, I’m not crazy about all of the black and I think even just wearing leggings instead of full tights would have broken it up a little more. Another way I might try this is by wearing a blazer instead of the undershirt.

Oh well… ideas for next time!

Dress: Max & Cleo

Undershirt: Target

Tights: probably Target

Heels: Martinez Valero (these were my wedding shoes! look familiar?

Necklace: White House | Black Market (what I wore for the rehearsal dinner)

Loving fall weather!


The weather here suddenly went from 95 degrees to 60 degrees so I got to wear a real fall outfit for once today. Even in this I was a bit chilly outside with all of the rain.

This outfit was once again a shot at mixing things up in new ways. Instead of wearing the tie that came with this sweater, I decided to wear the belt that I overspent on bought to go with my rehearsal dinner dress.

Sweater: Bergner’s

Belt: White House | Black Market

Jeans: YMIs

Trying out a new look


One of my (many) goals this fall is to remix clothes I already own in new ways. As Bill and I start budgeting together for the first time, I’m realizing that I really need to get the most out of the clothes I own and buy.

As I was getting ready for church this weekend I put together a new combo of this dress and sweater. In real life there was a little more difference between the blue dress and purple sweater. Then I decided to pull out a scarf. I had it around my neck but realized I needed to balance the outfit with a more open neckline. Suddenly I was inspired to wear the scarf around my head and VOILA! A completely new look that I’ve never tried before. I loved every minute of it and even Bill surprisingly thought it was cute!
