Fall 2016 10x10 - Outfits 5 & 6

Looks 5 & 6! A little over half way there! I'm very found of both of these looks. The semi-casual vibe of the look on the left and the mix of black and brown on the right. Two pieces of these outfits are the same but they are still completely different looks! Magic. 

This first look is probably my favorite so far. Nothing extremely innovative about the styling but I love the laid back vibe while still remaining a little dressy with the silk blouse. Again the beanie adds a more casual air and was really added out of necessity to cover up a bad hair day!

For both looks I had to roll the jeans under a little due to the high shaft boots. I opted not to cuff the jeans because it made my legs look shorter but I'm happy with how the tuck-under turned out!

For look number 6, I almost paired my Everlane loafers with this outfit instead of the brown boots. Small blogger secret maybe not so secret, I "changed" for these looks right at the spot of the shoot. So as I stared at the loafers in my tote I decided "eh lets stick with the boots". I also decided this because on this particular day it was a little chilly and my feet were nice and toasty in the boots. I know, fascinating story but I think the boots are what really make this look. I'm really liking the brown and black pairing. A little unexpected and still separated enough to not clash in an awkward way. I added another discrete splash of color with the reddish-brown crossbody and the outfit is complete! I actually really like this look and will be wearing it this weekend! Except I think I'm going to add my fuzzy muppet coat and a beanie.

Now here's the breakdown of the pieces!

Height: 5’5”
Weight: 130lbs.
Bra Size: 34C

Zara Olive Blouse
Wearing size small. At first I wasn't super crazy about this material but loved the color. Despite the feel I'm very glad I kept it. It has saved me so many times when I didn't know what to wear to a client meeting or semi-dressy event.

Joe's High Waist Jeans
I actually got these jeans at Nordstrom Rack a long time ago. I wasn't super crazy about them and they were too long. But they were the only high waist jeans I had and after getting them hemmed I grew to really love them. They dark almost black but still retain a blue tint. They stretch out a little but still maintain their shape. Here are some other skinny high waist jeans I love.

The Farrah Skinny Crop by AG $225

Madewell Frankie Chelsea Boots
I've talked about these in past posts but I'm loving them more and more every time I wear them. Here are some other chelsea boot options if you're looking for something more sustainable. Also! Everlane came out with a new black chelsea boot that I'm swooning over! 
The Brixton Boot by Everlane $225
The Chelsea Boot by Everlane $235
The Danthu by Sevilla Smith $284 (not a normal chelsea boot but beautiful!)

Madewell Turtleneck
My cozy fav. I do think I'm going to look for a black turtleneck that is a little more form fitting and has a shorter hem but in the mean time this one is perfect oversized warmth. 
The Cashmere Turtleneck by Everlane $135
Turtleneck by Skin Imogen $120
Wool Cashmere Turtleneck by Cuyana $155

This weekend I'm going to a Blogger workshop hosted by Bloguettes! They're covering everything from branding to social media and photoshop lessons! I'm extremely excited because I believe what I learn will help me bring my blog to the next level. It will take a ton of work and time but it will help me create even better content for all of you in the future. I'm definitely in need of some inspiration and motivation and hopefully this workshop does just that!

I also wanted to say thank you to those of you who do follow me on my style journey. It means so much to me to have your support! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Cheers!
