I’ve decided to give Megan Mae’s Fall Fashion Challenge a shot (and regret that I only stumbled across this yesterday, because I love the past “this or that” ideas!). Today’s “this or that” challenge was dots or stripes.
I chose… both! Dots and stripes. Wait can you do that? I decided, yes! 🙂 Here’s my outfit:
I generally have way more stripes than dots, and the couple dotty things I have are more suited to summer than fall, so I guess technically, my wardrobe leans toward stripes. However, I have these great polkadot tights that I couldn’t pass up wearing. But because the dots are so subtle, I figured I’d pair them with a striped top (ok, it’s actually a bodysuit) as well. I wore a skirt, of course, and added OTK grey socks and knee-high brown boots for warmth. I put a braided brown belt over the skirt to add some texture and tie in the boots better. Since the top is short-sleeved, I added a cardigan, but left it open so you could see the details of the outfit better. I added a LOVE necklace to complete the outfit. And because it’s a tad chilly out, I added a grey faux-leather bomber jacket.
This outfit was actually a bit of a challenge for me. I really wanted to wear a certain striped sweater I have, but it’s set aside to bring with me to Vegas next week, and I’ve made a deal with myself to not wear any of the tops I plan to bring to Vegas until then so that I’m not scrambling to do laundry at the last minute. I do think I’m going to bring this skirt though! I rarely wear it and forgot how cute it is… and how easy to dress up and down. No wrinkles either. A good travel piece, I think!
Here’s the set on Polyvore. Obviously not all the same stuff, but fun anyway.
