Pretty in Pink

I wanted a cute comfy outfit to wear for a casual Monday and this fit the bill. I love this cardigan because it reminds me a little bit of wearing a blanket – so cozy, but much less frumpy! The white blouse makes it a little more polished and the brown accessories keep it appropriate for autumn.

All Laced Up

I have a feeling lace is going to be one of my favorite fall trends. It’s so easy to incorporate and makes every outfit just a little more special. This dress was originally an Anna Sui for Target halter dress that I purchased on clearance. I used the lace fabric to create this full skirted dress with a slight sweetheart neckline and formed a bow out of the straps. I love this dress and it is so much fun to wear! Unfortunately the fullness of the skirt makes it a little difficult to wear under my longer cardigans and boxy jackets so I’m a little limited in how I can remix it.

I wasn’t sure how I wanted to accessorize this outfit and eventually added these bracelets to glam it up a bit. I love how this outfit turned out!

Wild West

I think between the denim jacket, the stripes, the leather belt, and the coral color of my top, this outfit had a distinctly cowboyish feel. I love this top with the eyelet trim at the top and my dark denim jacket, but I’m still not sure about this skirt. I like it, but it’s not necessarily my favorite. Oh well, life’s full of hits and misses. Maybe if I hemmed this skirt, I would like it better. I’ll have to consider that. However, I do kind of like this outfit as a whole.
