I've been sitting here contemplating what to write for about 30 minutes now. Actually, contemplating {I'm not sure my brain is working yet this AM} probably isn't the right word. It's been more of stare at the blank screen and get distracted. I suppose when I don't have a story or when my brain blanks I could always go with the old standby of how this outfit came together {this is a style blog after all}. This outfit is a combination of 2 things. First, I realized I've only worn this sweater once during the remix. Figured it was due another outfit and went from there. Second, with pattern mixing coming up tomorrow for Everybody, Everywear I chose a solid skirt since I don't have many prints to choose from for tomorrow's print extravaganza. So there you have it - the details behind the outfit.

I'm not gonna lie the combination of a sweater and wool skirt made for a particularly warm August day. Outfit photos were a bit rushed as I could feel the sweats coming on. And if there is one thing I try to avoid daily, it's the sweats. So there you have it - a little TMI to get your day going. You're welcome.

Pin It!

  1. I like how simple this outfit is. The colors look nice together.

  2. I have a dumb question for you.  Today I tried the belt over skirt look that you often rock, and I could not get the belt to stay put.  Any tips?

  3. Looking great in solids!  Sometimes words are not necessary.  Ever since I got back from my trip, I've been so full of words, no one can shut me up!  LOL.  So, I will over-vocab for you.

  4. Not a dumb question at all! To be honest my skinny belts tend to move a bit throughout the day so I definitely have to adjust. But I try to go on the looser end of things so that when I sit down the belt doesn't slip up. Hope that helps!

  5. I love the pink pop of color! I'm currently on the hunt for different colored skinny belts.

  7. That teal top is perfect for under the black vest as suggested last week.  Can't wait for EBEW tomorrow.  You knew it would be my fave.  Ha!

  8. Great look. It's far too hot here right now for sweaters, I'm anxious for it to cool down (just a bit!) so I can bring mine back out.  Can't wait to see what you have in store for tomorrow's EBEW!

  9. I'm pretty sure you should wear bright pastels every day.  That aqua and pink combo is divine on you!

  10. Liz - I need, need, need a skinny colorful belt just like that one. Where did you get yours? I've seen a few in green and yellow that I loved. I just think it can change an outfit so much and can be worked into outfits in so many different ways.
