In the middle of winter, weather can vary a lot, so it is good to wear multiple heavy layers. Today I have 2 of my favorite outfits that use layering to its advantage.
This outfit is something you would find me wearing on a lazy day. I have on one of favorite pair of leggings and a green hoodie. Adding the denim jacket and accented shoes really create the look into something more interesting. I added a few pins and buttons onto the jacket to spice it up a bit more. Here is where everything is from:
Leggings: JC Penny
Denim Jacket: Old Navy
Here is a closer look at the top. It can be worn with rolled up sleeves, or rolled down, depending on the weather. I love the long pull ties on the hoodie that really give it a good comfy look. One of my favorite things about the hoodie is how the bottom is cut, so that it looks nicer than the average, lazy hoodie.
Here are the buttons and pins that I put on the jacket. They are all different shapes, colors, and sizes, which makes it look balanced and not too much. If you want to see where the pins on the left are from, check out this blog post. My friend gave me the pin on the right from Disney, and it is super cute!
This second look takes a casual cropped sweater and dresses it up a little. I am wearing a thin, flowy, short sleeved, button up soft pink shirt under a fuzzy cropped sweater. I added a accent necklace to finish the business look. It is still super comfy, and would be perfect for an outing or going somewhere when you want to look a little nice. Here is where everything is from:
Sweater: JC Penny
Shirt: Forever 21
Jeans: American Eagle
The look of the top reminds me of a lot of shirts seen in stores, where they have two tops sewn together. I didn't think it would look cute if I tried to make it work myself, but it turned out really nice.
I have been looking for a cute pair of black ankle boots for forever, and it was no surprise when I finally found the perfect pair at H&M. My other boots that are shown a lot on the blog are also from H&M, and they are my favorite pair of shoes ever. I love how good the quality is, how cute they are, and also how cheap they are! Both boots were found for under $50.
That concludes this outfit post, it is the first of 2017! How is 2017 going for you so far? Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you have any personal tips on how to layer in winter, I would love to hear them! I also wanted to point out that I have been posting more often on social media recently, so make sure you are following me on all platforms to get more info and pictures from the blog. Have a fantastic week!
Welcome to the last of three back-to-school inspiration ideas. If you would like to see more different types of outfits, please comment below. This last look is made from mostly thrift shop steals, and together make a perfect preppy-style look. The combination of lace, flowy peplums, and cardigans give off a smart vibe. A great first-impression for your new teachers!
Anything peplum automatically reminds me of preppy style. That is the center of the outfit. I styled it with a layered necklace for a professional look. The cardigan is perfect for colder weather. Heels or flats work equally well with this outfit, but I chose sneakers to give it more of a school-ish vibe. Here is where everything is from:
Top: H & M
Sweater: Hello Kitty Brand
Bottom: JC Penny (Arizona brand jeans)
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack (similiar)
Here is a closer look at the necklace and t-shirt. I actually bought the t-shirt at a second-hand store, called Plato's Closet. The store it was originally from is H & M. The layered necklace is not three seperates, but one necklace that looks like three. Despite that fact that I adore this necklace, it would be nicer if I could wear each separately.
This is a close up of the jeans and shoes. The jeans were also found at a second hand store, called Small Threads. The brand name in the jeans was Arizona, so I knew they were originally from JC Penny. My vans are a year old and still in great condition so I highly recommend them as sneakers for the fall.
Back-to-school outfits are officially over! I'm sure most of you are now back in school, but I won't be until September 8. Let me know in the comments if you want more back-to-school themed posts, and what they should be about. If you decide to re-create this preppy outfit, tag me on Instagram or Twitter so I can see it. I would love to see your look, whether or not it is tomboy, simple, or preppy.
