Thrifted floral dress w/ oversized sweater for fall

November 17, 2018

 

Currently I am eating and drinking a disaster of a breakfast that I made for myself. As a young, maybe idiot chef, I’ve butchered toast with jam and my “cool” tea smoothie isn’t making me feel millennial pink (and instead I’m a bit green). But! Today is Wednesday, it’s 7:27 A.M. in the morning and I can already hear you saying “and you are telling me this because?”... and it's because today is the first day that I am officially writing a fall style post. I know, I know, it really is terribly exciting.

On the agenda today is a classic boot, skirt, and fall sweater combo with a hell of a twist. This outfit is a partial thrift and high street combo and I forced my friend to take these photos of me during a little vacation to a nearby island (thanks B!).

First up, the dressI thrifted this dress from a new vintage shop within the antique row of my city. The shop was really well curated and this dress was an unusual pick for me. It is a brown floral fabric w/ very 60’s white flowers on it. It has a cinched waist and a collar. It’s unusual and like nothing I’ve ever purchased before and I think I can place the blame on the inspiration I may have gathered from Isabella's instagram . The dress also fits like a glove and went perfectly with the brown boots I am wearing in the photo. It’s a bit classy, and a nice switch up from the a la college attire I usually wear.

The sweater is the coziest thing I own. It is massive and does require a good two or three "roll ups" of the sleeves but there's something about it that just makes it "fall" for me. I also love that the tan color of it is still very relevant and on trend even when I purchased it a year ago. I also love that it can function as dress on its own even though I have it rolled up on the bottom so you can see the thrifted dress peaking out. Additionally, oversized items feed into my obsession with subversive fashion and I love how large/ stylish it is. 

Lastly for the bootsThese boots were actually my mothers (such a stylish lady) and she didn’t have any use for them so she gave them to me (which is such a blessing). They are pretty basic brown leather boots that hit just below the knee. They are nothing incredibly unique but are such a staple to my fall style nonetheless.
What I L.O.V.E about this outfit is the way that the sweater gives an insane amount of comfort while the skirt/boot combo gives some leg! It was also perfect for the fall weather as a light breeze didn't make me cold and short visits from the sun didn't make me too hot.

What are you thinking for fall style? Are you sporting animal print daily (snakeskin boots, cheatah print pants, etc? Also if you are please explain because I am still working on finding a way to make animal print an everyday look. I just haven't mastered cheetah print during 9 A.M classes yet. Are you wearing western wear? Let me know I'm very curious)
