Over the summer and early fall, I challenged myself and wore this dress in six different ways. Now that some actual fall weather has arrived, I am challenging myself again to create six new unique looks for fall and “winter” (as wintery as it may get here, which will be no colder than the 30’s or 40’s, if we’re that lucky). Layering opens up so many new possibilities, and I’m itching to try them all out.
For today’s version, the weather was chilly, but not super cold. For those not in Florida, chilly means mid-60’s. I know those of you up north are groaning, but I’d take some snow over this any day.
I went for a nice color combo of black, white and gray with accents in tan and purple. This outfit is a bit more bohemian than what I’m used to, but I absolutely loved it. I’m re-learning that quality (not price) matters more than quantity. Wearing beautiful items that I absolutely love like those boots, the belt, the handknit scarf, makes me so happy. So here’s my most essential style advice. Buy less. Buy better. Buy things that make you swoon and wear them all the time. Throw out anything that makes you cringe. Replace it with something that makes you swoon. Repeat until you smile every time you walk by your closet.
