(Don’t worry, guys–I took these photos last Friday when it was unseasonably warm. AKA not in this near-but-not-actually snow-cold weather we’re having in Austin this week. Carry on!)
I had this outfit in mind a few weeks ago, but it was too cold to wear it. Then Jessica over at Bows & Sequins blogged almost the same outfit and I got really excited for the weather to be nice again so I could share my version. The weather was finally
nice fantastic, so Andy let me skip out of work early to go eat tacos on a porch.
Trends are not necessarily something I find worthy of my money since they change so often, but I’m really glad I caught the train to colored denim town, hopped on the leopard shoe express, and booked a first class flight with chambray. The next trends I’m hoping to add are patterned pants (coming to a blog near you!) and a solid-colored peplum top. By only buying one of each, I’m able to really work my closet around them and remix outfits that are both on trend and totally classic. Using these trendier pieces as staples in my wardrobe makes the every day outfit more interesting and I really get the bang for my buck.
I wore this outfit to work, but I easily could have worn it to a networking event, to brunch with the girls, on a movie date with Dago, for an impromptu shopping trip, or to hang out with my parents.
How to you get the most out of trends?
