Well, I’m not wearing sundresses anymore, that’s for sure. Burr! It got downright cold in the span of just a few short hours. I was at school Thursday sweating (in a really cute outfit I forgot to photograph, mind you) my booty off in 85 degree muggy weather, then went to night class for four hours and walked outside to 35 degree weather and pouring rain. Not very fun, and needless to say I did not look so cute anymore. At least it brought in a cold front and the fall-like weather returned for good…I hope.
I thought I would show three very simple ways to wear the very autumn-like outfit above. 1. button-up with quilted vest and belt 2. plain button-up 3. button-up with belt to cinch in the waist.
If you go back a few posts to my ‘Turquoise & Prints‘ OOTD, you’ll see I tried to wear the quilted vest. Tried being the operative word. That was my first OOTD with my new camera and it was clear that I didn’t really have a handle on what I was doing…or how to wear the darned vest. Then it hit me to cinch in my waste with a belt. Too much extra padding doesn’t look good on anyone unless you’re curve-less, which I am not. Thus, the belt — every women’s best friend. I pick up really affordable, skinny belts from Forever 21 all the time. I wear them a few times and then throw them away when they start to show too much wear. They can make any outfit and instantly gives you shape and makes everything look just right.
I think I’m getting better at this whole OOTD thing and I’m going to get back to giving tips and styling ideas like I used to do when I first started the blog. I have a few really good post ideas coming up, so stay tuned! Happy Monday, everyone!
