A Second Time Around

Happy Monday all!

On Saturday I started packing up my Spring/Summer clothes (bummer!) and unpacking my Fall clothes.  It was fun taking out my Fall clothes and seeing what I have.  This time last year I was completely at a lost for how to wear my clothes, but now I’m excited about trying new combos.  My outfit today is one of those experimental combos.  While it’s not earth shattering or avant garde, its different for me.   I’ve had this purple Gap v-neck sweater for almost 3 years and would only pair it with  pants.  I decided to wear it over my favorite JCPenney dress that I wore here.  I added my ASOS Curve skinny bow belt to complete the look.  I’m a huge fan of booties, so this was an opportunity for me to break in my new Bandolino suede booties. While the heel isn’t high, its narrow so needless to say I had a few near slips in the hallway at work today!

Have you unpacked your Fall clothes yet?

Have a wonderful evening!

Dress: JCPenney

  1. I love, love, love the look of a floral skirt with a pretty fall sweater, but never thought to pull a sweater over a dress! Very cute idea!

  2. Cute! Here in the South we’re having alternating Fall/Summer weather. Pretty soon we’ll be running the heat at night and the AC during the day. 🙂
    I have been experimenting with wearing my favorite cargo pants with wedges and boots instead of Topsiders and sandals as a nod to cooler temps.

  3. Girl you look GORG in purple. It is the perfect color for fall and I’ve seen so many beautiful hues of it on the runway. Honestly, I don’t put away anything but my sweaters during the warmer months so that’s all I have to pull back out. In the winter I don’t put away anything form summer, I just layer it up! lol Hope you are well my sweet cyber-friend! Kiah

  4. LOVE it!!! What a fresh, colorful spin on a classic look, and the tied neckline is right on trend. Ahhhhh, how I adore Bandolinos. It seems like I end up buying every pair of Bandolinos that I ever try on at Ross.

  5. unpacking winter clothing is like meeting old friends! although i am running out of room for my clothes (i should be honest, i have no idea where i am going to put them!) – i love your outfif – the pussy bow and a v neck (sounds like a drama show!) and your booties are gorgeous x

  6. Too cute, and so ladylike. I’ve been wondering when the tights and hose could come out. I guess now’s as good a time as any, huh? I’m so excited to really bust out my fall clothing. I’ve already worn some blazers and cardigans, fall flats, and a khaki corduroy skirt… But I want to wear my brown thrifted sweater dress and boots and tights and things!
