IMG_2507Hi there. This extremely girly ensemble would be nothing without the ripped jeans and this adorable bow tie. The bow tie is detachable so I can pair it with anything I feel like and that’s just awesome. With most outfits I wear, I always try and add a little contradiction. I like pairing items in my closet with other things that just aren’t supposed to go together. For example, these completely ripped jeans paired with this tutu-like top totally contradict each other. It’s small and probably insignificant but it’s one of my trademarks. I absolutely love it when people say, “I would have never paired that with this until I saw you do it.” It’s all about being open to the possibilities that one single outfit can bring. Add something edgy to a girly outfit. Add something girly to an edgy outfit. Those are some tips I’m leaving for you. I hope you try it sometime this week. Take baby steps if you have to. Fashion is so much fun but it’s only fun if you join in too.

My new favorite thing to do is wear sweaters over dresses. A cropped sweater is even better to pair with a flowy dress like this one. It’s one of the newest and easiest trends this fall. Why get rid of all your summer dresses when all you have to do is pair it with some jeans, boots, and throw on a cardi? Innovation at its best ladies.This post is a more girly take on this Anthropologie cropped sweater but trust me I have a post coming soon for all you tomboyish peeps out there.

Tip of the Day! Play around with your wardrobe, look at your older pieces and merge them into your newer ones. All of the possibilities will surprise you. Have fun with what you have and try not to stress about buying more clothes because trust me, I’m sure you have plenty. Blast some music and put on a fashion show for yourself. I’m sure you’ll come up with some great outfit ideas! But in the meantime, here’s some inspiration.

xoxo,

Karissa
