outfit of the day

taking the long way


hi, friends!

my post this week is all about comfort and style!  as much as i love an over-the-top bohemian look, i am overall pretty practical when it comes to my daily style.  i wore this look or some variation of it for about 3 days straight because the hat came in the mail and all i wanted to do was dress like a park ranger (stay tuned…one of these variations might appear next week.) to me, an oversized sweater, boots, and jeans is the perfect fall weekend look.

it was cold and rainy when delaney and i shot this, but i was actually pretty comfortable overall.  sometimes we forget that hats are extremely practical and serve a purpose besides being fashion accessories, and they really are quite useful in winter when the weather is less-than-favorable.  this sweater i am wearing was one of those items i just had to have; i got it on sale last year and ended up getting it in a size too big because i couldn’t live without it.  fit is very important, but the heart wants what the heart wants.  it’s big, and cozy, and perfect, so i stand by my decision.  the key with making a big sweater wearable is playing with proportion.  the easiest way is to be sure to pair it with skinny jeans on the bottom to balance out the volume on top.  i also love to wear my oversized sweaters over a pretty slip for a fun tomboy-meets-girly power play along with some tights, thigh-highs, and boots.

sorry (but not really) about all the socks-and-boots posts.  it’s kinda my thing.



that’s a wrap, folks! ➸

many thanks for reading!
