what i wore

this week i am all about layers, stripes and boots. oh, and polka dots.

as it should be.

sunday was all about black, brown and leopard. our fake-fall texas weather was just barely cool but i had my heart set on breaking out my boots again (we have a relatively short boot weather window which hurts my heart), so i thought cool thoughts.
y'all might not think brown boots would be the best choice for a black dress but y'all would be wrong.

(i'm sorry if that was harsh.)

black boots are perfectly fine for a monochromatic look,  but i think the contrast of black and brown is more interesting.

try it!

also? i don't own any black boots.

and while we are speaking of boots, i have serious boot fever for some cognac riding boots, however i am ignoring my fever to the best of my ability because how many brown boots does one girl really need?

(don't answer that.)
layers, even in accessories, are your friends.

layer a long necklace under a scarf and stack your bracelets.

go for it! fashion is supposed to be fun, y'all!
earrings, key necklace & bracelets: twisted silver & nordstrom (the bronze gem stone stretch one)
dress: target 
leopard scarf: h & m
watch: michael kors
boots: frye jane, zappos

monday was all about polka dots, lace and ankle boots.
polka dot blouse: nordstrom
vigoss jeans: nordstrom
lace cardigan: nordstrom
sam edelman petty 2 booties: nordstrom
necklace: stella & dot
bracelets: twisted silver & nordstrom


tuesday was all about slouchy stripes and comfy jeans.
slouchy striped t: free people, piper lime 
jeans: macy's
booties: nordstrom
monocle necklace: twisted silver
leather cuff: farmgirl paints

that's it for this week's style.
happy wednesday, y'all!

    1. Thanks for your kind words! Black and brown mix pretty well, now I want to try mixing some grey in too. Maybe someday I'll get brave enough to mix patterns!

  3. Love all the outfits and layering, was also wondering if the black dress and polka dot blouse were recent purchases?

    1. Thank you! The dress was from a few years ago but the polka dot blouse was from just a few months ago. It's sleeveless and from Nordstrom--hope that helps!

  6. I'm coming out from the blog stocking that I've been doing for a while. I found your site off of Jill's. I love your what you wore Wed. I am very challenged in the wardrobe dept and I like to see how you pair things together. I just wished you lived in UT so that you could take me shopping and show me how to dress! Love your style.
