fall outfits style

a fine formula

dress & boots: Forever 21 // sweater: Old Navy // scarf: Target old

Feeling inspired by fellow bloggers is a really fun part of reading blogs all day, every day. When you find someone whose look feels like something you can incorporate into your own style, without feeling like you’re str8 up copying their jam, it gives your closet warm fuzzies and everything feels right with the world.

That’s how I feel about Elana of Room 334. She’s got her own very distinct style, to the point where I see other well-dressed ladies on the street and wonder if they read her blog. But, she also isn’t doing such crazy things with clothes that I don’t feel like I can relate or feel inspired by her. I love that she comes up with formulas that can be repeated a bazillion ways and still feel original and new every time.

Take this green dress. It’s incredibly versatile and can be worn about a 1001 ways. However, figuring out what those ways are that works with what I’ve already got hanging in my closet is sometimes a challenge. Enter Elana’s brilliant formula: add a cozy cardi and a circle scarf? Easy, breezy, stylish.

On another note, I want to talk about these boots. I’ve longed and lusted over the Steve Madden Troopas for years now, and had finally decided that maybe it wasn’t meant to be. Then I found these awesome knock offs at Forever 21 for a gah-reat price, so I ordered me a pair and patiently waited for them to arrive.

They came and I excitedly started trying to make outfits with them, since I assumed I’d wear them every dang day. Turns out, not so flattering on me. Or something? I really haven’t been able to figure out what it is that isn’t working, but it’s definitely not. Even in this outfit, I think it would look better with my slouchy tan boots than these. And they look real funny with jeans! i just can’t figure it out. Somebody halp! Otherwise, I’m gonna end up taking ’em down to the Buffalo Exchange.
