Fall Uniform

November 11, 2015

My fall uniform consists of some type of boots, jeans, and sweater or top (often of the plaid variety). I’m loving this split back plaid shirt by WAYF. It’s super soft and a great color. The open back sets it apart from other plaid tops. Full disclosure, I pinned the top a little to keep it from showing my bra. If you’re a regular reader, you know I shared a post recently about OTK boots. While I loved my gifted boots from Choies quality and look wise, they just were not tall enough for my almost 5’10” self. I regularly clean out my closet and take things to the resale shop. Unfortunately, those were one of the things I took in. I found this faux suede pair at Forever21 for less than $45! They also come in grey and black. I was so excited because they fit my foot and leg so well, and they stay up.

Blogging has taught me so much. Seeing yourself in outfits helps teach you what works and what doesn’t work for your body. I totally recommend outfit selfies for that very reason. After seeing this set of photos, I realized this will not go down as one of my favorites. It is not because I dislike any of the pieces, but the combo of the tall boots and high waisted jeans/tucked in shirt somehow is not too flattering. That’s all on me, and in the future, I will leave my shirt untucked or wear a longer top. Just wanted to share my OTK boot styling tip and thoughts!

    I always think you look great. I agree – sometimes when I see my pictures I think – what was I thinking?!?

    I love your plaid shirt! I really like the fit and the split in the back! I think you look great ๐Ÿ™‚ But I do agree that sometimes all it takes is seeing yourself in an outfit to know if it works or not or more “you”. I definitely have those too!

    I think you look great Amy Ann, especially because you are tall the jeans looks fab with those boots. But I know what you mean, blogging helps so much in terms what works and what doesn’t. For example I bought myself a fringe vest some months ago and we went out for a shoot, I didn’t feel too good in it and boom, we stopped, I can’t pull it off. I love seeng it on others and you look so good in fringe but I have to sell my vest now. Much love, Kirsten xx

    I love the new boots. I think you look great in this outfit. However, I do know what you mean about taking a photo of yourself to see how the outfit really looks on you. I have found that as well since blogging. Some of my outfits that I thought I wanted to post I ended up not posting since I did not like the way I looked in them once I saw a picture of me in it. I do however think you look great in this outfit. You look very casual chic! Have a great day!

    Had I not read the post and only looked at your pics, I would have sworn that the fringed jacket was a high-end piece. Wow! What a great steal (and off to Forever 21 I go).

    Stay fab,
