I Got it Right That Time!

I thought it would be fun to go through my archives and pick out my top ten outfits- my ten favorite outfits that really came together!  So without further ado, here they are!

What: Forever 21 Everything
Where: To School
Why: This is my go-to outfit, a cardigan + dress + tights (if it’s cold) + flats

What: Swapped Sweater, Forever 21 Dress, Target Flats
Where: To School
Why: The idea of putting sweaters over dresses is genius and this is the first time I tried it.

What: American Eagle Blazer, Forever 21 Tee, Thrifted Skirt and Tights, Wanted Boots
What: Group Meeting
Why: Would I have worn this outfit before blogging?  Hell no!  Do I think it’s awesome?  Hell yes! =)

What: Forever 21 Cardigan, Dress, Booties, American Eagle Tights
Where: Christmas at home
Why: I’m big into florals these days, so I love this dress.  Plus I still can’t get over this huge ornament!

What: Thrifted Sweater, Forever 21 Skirt, American Eagle Tights, Wanted Boots
Where: To Work
Why: Simple, I’m wearing my funfetti sweater- probably my fave thrifted sweater ever!

What: Forever 21 Necklace, Cardigan, Tights, Thrifted Dress, Target Flats
Where: Lunch with my Mom and Godmother
Why: This black shift dress is classic- the perfect LBD.

What: Forever 21 Tee, Skirt, Old Navy Wedges
Where: Out and About (that means I don’t remember)
Why: I love Bloggers Do It Better for pushing me to try new things!  I would never have combined these colors if I wasn’t attempting to colorblock!

What: Forever 21 Cardigan, Tank, Shorts, Tights, Handknit Vest, GoJane Wedges
Where: Shopping with my Sister
Why: I really love the color of this vest and think it turned out great!  Also, I had been coveting those shorts forever and then my sister finally found them for me- she’s a doll!

What: Old Dress, Target Wedges, H&M Sunglasses
Where: To the Movies with my Brothers
Why: I’ve really embraced the maxi trend (see example 2 below)!

What: H&M Jacket, Charlotte Russe Top, Forever 21 Skirt, Payless Sandals, TJ Maxx Purse
Where: Running Errands
Why: This cargo jacket is absolutely my favorite spring purchase.  I wear it ALL the time.  Also, the maxi skirt, I can do that too! =)

Which one is your favorite?

      Thank you Monica! I can basically only wear that dress as a skirt because the bodice part is ripped up.

    This is a great idea, I’m sure you wear all these things all the time, and that’s why you love the outfits so much! I feel like I go to the same outfits sometimes because they are so reliably me.

    My fave is the first outfit. Black, red and grays is always very nice together! I also like the bit of lace peaking out from the bottom hem. Is that part of the skirt or a slip?
