So I love, love, LOVE to shop…but I have to admit that it’s nearly as much fun to take pieces that I already own and put them together in completely new and different ways!!
Today was one of those days when I felt the need to push the sartorial envelope a little with a combination that I wouldn’t otherwise immediately reach for; I knew I wanted to wear my mod-inspired red plaid dress…but then what?!
My first instinct was to layer a black mock-turtleneck under the dress; not bad, but not “special” enough, either. Then I remembered how much I liked the way my white button-down shirt looked layered with a sweater in my “Back to school” outfit…maybe that was a possibility??
Oh yes!! There’s a bit of the tomboy element that I enjoy including in many of my outfits…and some retro flare (care of the dress’s short hemline and my tall boots)…and (hello cat-eye sunnies!) a touch of rock and roll, too!! I’d say it’s a personal style jackpot, dear readers!! 🙂
