Hi there, guys! Hope you’re all having a beautiful week. 🙂 ❤ I have my third OOTD post to share with you today! This outfit is an absolutely beautiful one, I think – definitely the first of its kind in my wardrobe! – and I had such a fun time at the little photoshoot where my mom took these pictures! ❤ I hope that you guys enjoy!
Let’s take a look at the whole outfit first.
Just look at the sleeves, aaaaahh! ❤
This outfit is one that I created by taking different articles that I bought separately, which all went together perfectly. Three out of the four things were purchased over the past couple of weeks, and the other (the jeans) I’ve been loving for about a year. Haha! (Also, isn’t the lighting in the pics perfect? My mom did a wonderful job!)
I had to step out of my comfort zone to put together this ensemble. Basically everything that I wore are items that I wouldn’t have looked into purchasing even a year ago, and not just because they would only suit my age now, or something. For a long time, I have been in the habit of wearing and buying very simple outfits, and it was hard for me to shop for anything more than this. Recently, however, I have been slowly breaking away from that trend and creating my own style, which has been a beautiful, exciting experience!
Also, I love how my staple hairstyle as of late (messy bun) looks awesome with this outfit.
This is honestly such a pretty picture! ❤ Now, let’s take a look at where I got everything!
Shirt – Thrifted. When I came across it on the clothing racks at Goodwill one Sunday, I knew that I had to have it! Once I tried it on and it fit perfectly, I was more than happy to bring it home. (Too bad it wasn’t on sale, though, lol)
Jeans – Thrifted. As I already mentioned, I’ve been wearing these for a while, and they are so comfortable!
Shoes – Old Navy. My family and I went shopping around different outlet stores on a weekend in October, and while I was browsing the gorgeous sweaters at Old Navy, I looked up and found these awesome booties (aka little boots), in tan and black, on a shelf at my eye level. They are extremely comfortable and just my size! I love them!!!
Shoulder Bag – Thrifted. I found this beautiful bag the same day I purchased the books I shared on my book haul post last week! I can’t get over how greatly I adore this bag; it is absolutely gorgeous, and I got it in fantastic condition. The only sad thing about it are the ends of the shoulder strap; I’ve had to sew them up, as they were very weak, but I need to still work on that a bit more.
Nail Polish – WalMart. Yup, haha! This was the first time in years that I got my nails painted, and this was the very first occasion that I painted them myself! (Just shows that it’s been so long, hahaha) I loved the deep purple shade (All Vamped Out by Pure Ice). ❤ You can see a more up-close shot of my nails below.
Aren’t they pretty? And I seriously love that bag so much! ❤
Thank you so much for reading, guys! This was a fun post to write, and I’m so happy with how the pictures turned out! ❤ I hope that you have a beautiful day (:
