Plaid and the changing of leaves is the absolute best part of Autumn. This outfit is a great combo for mildly warm days. I took a basic summer dress and layered one of my favourite button down shirts underneath! I love the school girl look of it all and had no problem accenting that with the current sock-and-heel trend. Reds and oranges are perfect for this time of year as well! I highly suggest taking advantage of any adorable autumnal colored finds you can get your hands on!
It’s an extremely gloomy, rainy day here in DC. As soon as I was ready to take some pictures, it started to pour 😦 Lucky enough, it cleared for the rest of the night! My lovely boyfriend was my photographer and actually did so much better than I expected! Although he made fun of me most of the time, I think I’ll keep him (; This is such a casual chic outfit that can be worn for a night out, or with a pair of sneakers for a day having lunch with some friends. I haven’t had many opportunities to expand my closet recently (aka go shopping :P) so I’ve done a lot of playing around with the pieces I have. I think that’s one of the key necessities to being a stylish individual. Spending isn’t always available and we don’t all get clothes for free like the many blogger inspirations we see with new pieces nearly every other day. Making the most of the pieces you have is key. One pair of jeans can make 5 different significant outfits that never look the same! Keep an open mind 🙂
