Hey guys! I hope that you’re having a fantastic day! ❤ I am very happy to bring you my second Outfit Of The Day post on this fine Tuesday! I had a blast having the pictures taken for the first one I did (which you can check out here). My mom was the awesome photographer behind that one, and this one, as well! She’s really good at it, and I’m thankful that she agreed to do this for me. 🙂
This fall OOTD holds special meaning for me; I wore it for the first time last year when I met my favorite music band, Leeland! I assembled the outfit just for that day, which is why it makes me think fondly of them every time I wear it now.
So, let’s look at the outfit!
We took these pictures while visiting one of our favorite libraries a few weekends ago. It was finally beginning to feel like fall outside, which is what prompted me to wear this outfit that day, haha!
If you read my first outfit post, then you probably remember seeing those Nikes featured on that one, as well. I have attempted to wear the rest of this outfit paired with my pair of light gray Keds in the past, but they really hurt my heels, so I decided to wear my comfy shoes that day, instead. #mypoorfeet
Also, this is what happens when you’re trying to figure out which is your best side, while also battling the sunlight …
I don’t even remember making that face, but my mom obviously caught it on camera, haha! Below is my response when I realized how squinty I was making my eyes –
I’m not the most photogenic person, but I do love to laugh, haha
While my first OOTD is my favorite 2017 fall ensemble, today’s outfit was my top pick from 2016! I found all of the pieces that created it over the course of that year, and I feel so confident and happy in it. Some of the items took me on a scavenger hunt to find, and others, I simply stumbled upon. As a whole, I love it, and definitely look forward to wearing it in the fall months!
Let’s look at where I got everything!
Kimono Cardigan – Thrifted. I was so stoked when I spotted this on the shirts rack at one of our favorite thrift stores! I couldn’t believe my luck; I never find things like this while thrifting, and this one makes me so happy. It is so light and airy (and very pretty!), and the material doesn’t make my skin bothered at all. (Woop!)
Tank Top – Kohl’s. Finding this one took a while; I tried on four other tan/white tank tops at our local Kohl’s before choosing it! I needed a light tan shirt to go with the kimono cardigan, and I was very happy when I found this one. Although it is a bit tighter than I would prefer, I only wear it with the other shirt. The material is very soft, and I appreciate that it isn’t see-through like many other shirts of its kind!
Necklace – Famous Footwear. I bet you didn’t see that coming, haha! The same day that I bought the Keds mentioned previously in the post, I spotted a jewelry rack to the left of the front counter. I used all the money on me at the time to purchase it, and I don’t regret it! I love the golden leaf, little amber/pearl beads, and the gold-colored tassel. It’s a perfect fit for this outfit!
Jean Shorts – Thrifted. I have never been more in love with a pair of jean shorts before – and they’re Faded Glory, no less. They fit me perfectly, go with everything, and I’ll be very sad they day they’re too worn to wear. If I could buy a few more pairs, I totally would!
Shoulder Purse – Thrifted. I wear this purse with many of my outfits, as it goes with practically everything I own! It’s the perfect size and has just the right amount of compartments and pockets for me. I love it!
Sunglasses – Kohl’s. Before I got this pair earlier this year, I was struggling to find a pair that didn’t squeeze just behind my ears, or make me look like a bug-eyed fly. The struggle was real, lol! But these were made for me, I’m sure of it – they fit me so well, have a cute floral design on the inside of the arms, and do their job, too; 100% UV protection. haha
Shoes – Famous Footwear. They’re extremely comfortable, breathable, and go with everything!
As a bonus for the end of this post, I took a selfie of myself in this outfit:
Thank you so much for reading, guys!! This may be my last OOTD for a while; I’ll have to see what else I can put together. I hope that you’re all doing well!
