Oh Hey! Remember Me?

It’s been some time since I’ve posted here on the blog, or on my Instagram for that matter. I’ve been feeling some changes in me & needed some time to figure out exactly what they meant for me & my life. Don’t worry, I’ll be filling you guys in on what’s been going on in my head & heart soon.

But until then..I’m back! Not only am I back, but I’m sharing with you the dreamiest toile dress I’ve been wearing to death that’s under $20! Scroll to see more…

Transitioning Into The Colder Months

Now that the weather is starting to feel more like fall, I’ve been playing around with how to wear this gorgeous toile dress into the colder months. My favorite way has to be with a pair of knee high boots, a beret, & my classic trench coat over top. You could also wear it with black tights, heels, & a fluffy faux fur coat to dress things up a bit. Either way, you better believe I’ll be wearing this many times in the coming months. I can’t pass up this dreamy, classic print!

Those Citrus Vibes

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m working on adding more yellow into my wardrobe & this dress is one of my new favorite pieces. My first reaction upon seeing this dress online, was to order it in a dreamy white shade, but when I saw it also came in yellow, I decided to take a chance & dive right in.

In my previous post, I talked about wanting to maybe do a full green & yellow look. I did not have an idea in mind for this post yet, but then I randomly one day tried this combination on together & it felt so right. The dramatic skirt of this dress in contrast with the green, more structured & formal feel of the jacket overtop is a look I’m totally in to at the moment. One thing I really needed for this outfit to truly come together was a great pair of green + yellow earrings. These BaubleBar earrings blinged out in lemons were an absolutely perfect match.

My Green + Yellow Look

This amazing bright yellow dress is definitely the star of the show. I know you will see me wearing this so much over the coming months because of how stunning it is on it’s own. For this post, I layered this vintage green houndstooth jacket with gold buttons (similar here), but wrapped the belt of the dress over it for a more flattering silhouette. A dress like this will look great with flats in the summer, but I loved how these ivory rounded toe, chunky heels complimented this look perfectly. For a bit of texture, I wore my classic, mini Chanel bag which tied in with the darker tones of my jacket.

This location was perfect with the green & yellow houses, but there was a salmon colored one right in the middle that matched my lipstick so well! I was wearing my new favorite: the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Liquid Lipstick in the shade, Too Bad, I’m Bad. Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are just the best. They last so long, wear so well, & feel so comfortable on the lips. You know I love my affordable products, but I will say, these lipsticks are worth a little splurge.

Layering B&W Prints

This past year, I’ve loved exploring & playing more with print mixing. We’ve talked about the basics, we’ve played around with mixing pieces in the same print, & also played around with florals & stripes. Today’s look features 6 prints & textures with one common factor: they are all black & white. I love the statement this look makes while still remaining so neutral. Another reason why these pieces play so well together is because the prints are all different sizes. The large polka dots combined with the medium stripes & the smaller houndstooth & check prints create a perfect balance.

Shop Wisely

If you are wanting to start playing around with mixing prints or even just mixing more items within your wardrobe, it all comes down to shopping wisely & knowing your personal style. What colors do you wear most? (I recently re-organized my closets in color order & it has been life changing!) When adding more prints into your wardrobe, think about the colors that comprise the print. Do you own several pieces in those colors? If so, that item is likely to fit into your wardrobe in a more seamless manner. Shopping wisely is key to having a well curated closet without excess.

Get Creative

I was actually so nervous about putting together this look. In my head it seemed like there was a lot going on & it would look too cluttered, but honestly I’m obsessed with this look & cannot wait to wear it out again! All it took was a little bit of courage for me to step out of my comfort zone & create one of my favorite outfits ever. Be fearless. Don’t be afraid to try something new. You might just love it!

5 Ways To Elevate Your Look

My Houndstooth Obsession

It’s A Classic

My houndstooth obsession has definitely multiplied over the past couple of months, & the proof is in this outfit! This classic print is one of the easiest prints to transform from day to night. I find I can easily talk myself into purchasing an item in this print because it truly never goes out of style.

The only new item in this outfit is my new tan croc belt. All of the other pieces I have added to my wardrobe here & there over the years. I thought this outfit would be perfect to share with you guys. 5 ways to elevate your look using items you already own in your wardrobe. Using these tips will help you to instantly look chic & effortlessly put together.

5 Ways To Elevate Your Look

1. Pop Your Collar

I am all about popping my coat collars. This simple trick gives you that instant cool factor & adds a bit of dimension to your look. It also shields your neck & face from the cold as an added bonus. Look cool, but feel warm.

2. Add A Belt

Belts are a big trend right now. They are that added accessory item that can really bring a whole look together. This autumn/winter, I’m loving adding belts to my oversized coats & sweaters to create a more flattering shape.

3. Match Your Bag

Whether you want to match your bag to your outfit by print or color, this tip is sure to elevate your entire look. Taking that extra 30 seconds to choose a bag that truly matches your look rather than one that just “goes”, totally ups your whole outfit. Also, changing out your purses on a daily basis helps you carry around less clutter & more essentials.

4. Roll Those Sleeves

Rolling the sleeves of your coat, cardigan, or sweater adds a bit more texture to your outfit. For some reason, doing this makes you not only look more put together, but relaxed & chic at the same time. This tip is so easy to try out on the daily, so why not start now?

5. Pile On The Prints

Curated outfits, like the one I’m wearing, are popping up everywhere right now. The biggest tip I can give on this is to stick to 2-3 colors at a time. Own a lot of polka dots? Try mixing them together to create a look. Are you a fellow stripes lover? Why not try a stripes on stripes look? (see mine here) This tip works beautifully with gingham as well. Give it a try! You may be surprised by how good it looks.

M i n e   A t   L a s t

I fell in love with this skirt last year. Hard. I mean head over heels in love with this pretty little skirt. At the time, it seemed as though everyone had it. I even went into J.Crew & tried it on, which made me love it even more, but I couldn’t justify the price tag in that moment. Last month, while perusing the J.Crew Factory website, I found it online for a fraction of the cost! I knew it was finally time to make this skirt mine. Mine at last.

The shape of this skirt is one I knew I would wear year after year. It  looks amazing with boots, & the many colors of the classic houndstooth print will go with infinite outfits for years to come. I love the feminine ruffle at the bottom as well as the comfortable feel of the elasticated waist. A timeless, classic piece in my wardrobe.
