It’s always a struggle for me to not default to an all black outfit. Black is not only chic, but also often slimming. And who doesn’t doesn’t love to look both chic AND skinny?!
Anyway, so this morning was not unlike others and my instinct was to pull out something black to where. Instead, I decided, the complete opposite of all black is what I would aim for. So, that’s how this outfit came about. 🙂
I purchased this white drop-waist dress a while back for about $16 from Asos.com and the jacket from Kohl’s for $11. $11 y’all! For a chanel-esque tweed jacket! LOVE. The necklace if from Tarjay, $16 and purchased around Christmas time. The boots are super old and to be honest, not my first choice for this outfit. Ideally, I would have wanted to wear over-the-knee LIGHT gray boots, but since I didn’t have them and it’s 30-ish degrees out, I went with these. Here are some of the ones I would have worn instead:
As you can see, my ideal boots are WAY to expensive, so I went with my $30 boots instead. 😀
