I had hoped to post two OOTDs last week, but I failed, so here are two OOTDs from this past week to make up for it!
I rolled up the sleeves of a striped hand-me-down button down, originally from American Eagle (similar), although I inherited it from my sister. The J.Crew Drapey sequin tank is used as a sort of shell in this outfit. With my huge soccer thighs, it's difficult to find a pair of jeans that actually fit. After owning jeans from Abercrombie, Abercrombie & Fitch, Express, Old Navy, Gap, and J.Crew, I finally found a pair I love: Hollister's jeans have just enough stretch to make them fit in all the right places (and don't worry, they're not jeggings--I refuse to wear those). I like to purchase the darkest wash jeans I can find because the darker the wash, the dressier the jean. You can find a pair that might work for you here. Riding boots for the shoes and that blue jeweled headband for a hair accessory…again. My necklace is just some opera-length pearls wrapped around my neck several times.
Now, for Outfit #2:
This was one of the outfits I wore the last week before I went home for Thanksgiving break, so I was already immersed in holiday spirit. It's possible that a bit of my holiday spirit transferred into my outfits…I bought this dress from Gap (similar) over the summer for possible interviews for internships. I rolled the sleeves up over this cardigan from Old Navy. I love this cardigan because I can wear it year-round--it's lightweight and perfect for layering. I borrowed my friend's red scarf, which she bought near her home in Cape Cod. I found a similar scarf from Old Navy, but it doesn't have the light pattern that my friend's does. I removed the original belt from the dress and wrapped it around my head to make a matching headband. The belt shown in the picture above is actually from an old Lilly Pulitzer resort collection dress. There are those boots again (they truly go with just about everything)! Here's the best part: the socks I'm wearing are my Adidas soccer socks from my last season of high school soccer!!
Enjoy Turkey Day!
