Now I’m Stronger Than Yesterday

I was super crazy excited to wear this outfit. I thought of it on a Thursday night, so I had to save it, because as you know, Fridays are casual. It’s some sort of rule. But I wore it first chance I got! And I loved it.

Sometimes you think of an outfit and when you go to make it work, you find you have to tweak a thing or two here and there. Maybe the shoes didn’t work, or the cardigan you choose is the wrong length for the dress, but this translated perfectly from inspiration to wear.

I do love to add a bit of edge here and there to my dresses, I know, but it was really fun to push the envelope of my personal style and just go all out lady like with this one. I loved the proportions of the cropped jacket and short dress, and I loved the way the nude pumps worked with the darker navy blue tights. The pumps are one of three pairs a co-worker recently passed down to me from her Grandmother’s collection, and the bag is from my Grandmama’s stuff.

I had so, so much fun wearing this! BUT, what’s even better is it was just the beginning of a week that went really well for me outfit wise. I am on a streak of getting it just right and just really loving the combinations I am putting together and you know WHY? FALL. That’s why. TIGHTS! JACKETS! CLOGS! YAY!~

Cute dress and I love the light colored shoes with the navy tights - so pretty!

Love it from top to toes. Though I can't quite believe you're wearing tights in Texas and I'm not in Minnesota. Crazy!

I'm gonna have to agree...FALL is bringing back my mojo too!

I love this on you!

You look super pretty in the last picture. This print is perfect for you. Thanks for getting a Britney Spears song in my head though...jackass...(jk).

Love this look!! You look so ladylike!

I love it when an outfit perfectly translates from inspiration to wear - doesn't happen often, so when it does, it makes it all that much sweeter :).

You don't say a thing about the belt, and that's what I want to RAVE about! It's so awesome, and your list says that it's from your grandma? What a stylin' lady!

I love it! I love how the belt, shoes, and bag all work together perfectly and are so awesome against the dress!!

This outfit is just gorgeous, and also makes me really sad that I didn't see any of that Tucker line at the Target nearest to me!

This does look great! I especially like the unexpected blue tights with the nude shoes.
Just great.
Can't wait to see what the rest of the week brought.

Cute jacket!

Jodie said...

Really stunning. I got to the tights, shoes combo and it made me all smiley, because it's just so right :) Autumn is so much easier to dress than summer (but why must it rain so?).
