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’ve been eyeing those boots from Forever 21 but was wondering if they’d be tall enough on me (I’m 5’11”) I love how you styled them and that jacket is gorgeous…I can’t believe it’s from Old Navy!

    I totally agree that seeing yourself in photos allows you to see what looks good and what works and doesn’t work for you. I certainly look back at some of my photos and say what was I thinking but we’re our worst critics. I actually think you look great and those boots showcase your gorgeous long legs!

    You’re making me want to go out and get myself a pair of OTKs, even though I haven’t had much luck with them. This is the perfect outfit for fall.

    Love the fringe! You look gorgeous! And I know what you mean – the look on my blog today I almost did not share because I don’t find it flattering (all because of the shirt tucked in!).

    I totally agree with you. Being a blogger, I do pay close attention to outfit details. Probably more than the average person would do. You look great as always. Love that plaid shirt!

    What a great plaid shirt, the split is perfect! And how perfect is this fringe jacket?! I love it!
