One thing I have really enjoyed about starting this blog is that it has encouraged me to venture in to the darkest reaches of my closet. I am way more motivated to get a little out of my normal comfort zone of oversized sweaters, and skinny jeans. Which isn’t to say that I haven’t posted a few looks like those. It is after all, my go to look in the Fall and Winter. A girl’s got to stay warm and comfy right?

Anyways, this is a post for an outfit that has been in my head for years. When I say years, I really do mean I’ve been sitting on this idea for these pieces for at least five years. I found this beautiful vintage wool Pendleton skirt at a thrift store a long time ago, and even though it wasn’t quite my style, it was just too great to pass up. Same goes for the polka dot sweater. I have a bunch of pieces like this in my closet, ones that are just too perfect to leave at the thrift store, even if I don’t know how to wear them yet. I am a sentimental shopper, and I just can’t leave a good piece behind!

Despite being across the board with my personal style, most of the time I tend to dress in baggy or oversized clothing, I am not super girly, and my style definitely reflects that. However, I do have those moments where I really just want to feel pretty, and girly. This skirt is so perfect for that, I think that A-line silhouettes are super feminine, and are flattering on almost everybody! The blue polka dot sweater is so perfect for this skirt, I love the whole vibe of it. I think I feel like I can pull cutesier things off when I have bangs, so I have had a lot of fun lately experimenting with higher necklines, and fun collars. I decided to pop on my new horn rimmed glasses to top the whole look off. My sister kept telling me I looked like Marion the Librarian from The Music Man. I’ll take it!

In this look: Most of the pieces in this look are second hand, my skirt is vintage and by Pendleton, my top was found at Crossroads, shoes are from Target, and my glasses are from Eyebuydirect
