How We Wore It // Darker Fall Tones

My blog is so new and I am still learning the ropes, so I was so excited when Brielle (breezy and co) and Brooke over at Silver Lining invited me to be a part of this month’s “How We Wore It” blog post. I focus so much on makeup that sometimes it’s fun to do something different, especially since I LOVE clothes!

This month’s inspo is via StyleLovely. I love that this tag is about using stuff that you already have in your closet to recreate the look. I don’t own anything gingham but I wanted to stick with the black and white for my recreation and this is what I came up with.
My style is all over the charts but I own tons of black, white and grey and as I get older and my style evolves, I realize that I really love the minimalist look. I switched back and forth between wearing B&W Nike Free Runs -I am obsessed with Street Style and how “chic sneaks” can look - but I opted for strappy heels instead because my cardigan was so long. I wanted to help make my little shorty legs look longer. The struggle of being under 5 foot is REAL! I threw on a leather jacket for more layering. Leather is a staple for me and I love layering it with long sweaters!

I realized by doing this post that Harlow is definitely my buffer in pictures. Taking pictures by myself felt pretty awkward. What do I do with my hands? Anytime a car drove by I wanted to jump into the lake. If I wasn’t running away from judgement from passing cars, I was running from geese a.k.a. Douche Birds, who looked like they were equally judging me. Why do they have to hiss? As if they didn’t look mean enough, they make a noise that literally terrifies me. If you look closely at my heels, you will see the mud from my attempts at running away through the grass, which I failed at and just ended up aerating the lawn and getting mud everywhere.  

But back to the point of this post!! For the last piece of this look, I put on a red lip from Jouer Cosmetics in the shade Simone. Since I dressed up the look with heels, I thought a bold lip would be appropriate and I think it helped add a little bit of color to this look. Awkwardness aside, I’m glad I did this!
