Layers & Notched Stripe Skirt OOTD
Picking out what I’m going to wear the next day is something I enjoy doing (most of the time). I rarely hate what I’ve decided to wear and while of course not every day is a stand-out outfit there are some days where I am really pleased with the way my outfit came together. I had one of those days this week. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to wear. I knew I wanted to wear this notched stripe elastic waist skirt and boots. Next, I was thinking of what top to wear with it. I actually thought of wearing a bright, solid color top, but then remembered this off-white layered top that I got as a birthday gift from a friend. Finally, I needed to pick a cardigan to go with it. Originally I was going to wear a black cardigan, which would’ve been a nice black & white look. I even had my black cardigan out to iron, but then at the last minute decided I wanted to go with a bright color to stand out against the black and white. When you have so many ideas floating around in your head, the end result really can go either way, but I was very happy with the way my outfit turned out!

Here are a closeup of the layers on my shirt and the pattern on the skirt. The boots are flat, black boots. I loooove boots in the fall. Flat boots, heeled boots, Uggs, rainboots, you name it!
I love those days when you’re just so happy with the look you put together!

Thank you! I really love all the layers and love how it looks tucked into the skirt.
