Okay, so maybe I overdid it just a tad, but it rained actual rain here and got below 80 during the day, so I dressed like an actual person should dress in actual October! With tights, a cardigan, and boots! And a scarf. Heh. Alright I was kind of hot all day, but look at my layers!
This outfit contains nearly all of my favorite things (that a person can wear):
1. Mixed Prints. The scarf I chose to wear with my striped dress has different sized polka dots, but the patterns don’t fight because they’re in the same color family.
2. Colored Tights. Also in the same color family and OPAQUE, which is key for bringing the most bang to the outfit.
3. Boyfriend Cardigan. As I explain in this month’s newsletter (sign up here!), the boyfriend cardigan is great over a dress! It’s a girly-tomboy look that works great here because it actually gives my slightly boxy dress a little more shape.
And of course we all know how I feel about stripes. Well, today it’s back to feeling warm, but it was fun while it lasted, wasn’t it?
