WEAR*It Wednesday's: Holiday Inspired

I had a picture pinned on Pinterest that was basically this look. White dress + red cardigan + black shoes. I had all of the above and never thought to copy it. But then I saw Kaylee do the same combination and I was in love. Let's be honest though, I'm kind of in love with Kaylee's style in general. She dresses very similar to me, just better. So yeah, this is my holiday inspired outfit for Wear*It Wednesday's hosted today by La Boutique Verte. Go and check out all the other amazing holiday inspired looks. I'm always torn between being overly themed and subtlety holidayish. This is a nice in between. We made sure to seek out a pine tree for these photos and so I included an artsy shot my boyfriend took.

Anna gave me this dress. She wore it with the ruffles tucked in and it looked like a completely different dress. See here. She wanted me to have it so she took it off in the parking lot. Cool kids trade clothes in parking lots.

Also why is white so hard to photograph?!

A poem I wrote was published in the Case Reserve Review! It was the first poem I turned in for poetry this semester and the first non-journalism piece I've had published. Click here to read it. I'm on page 21.



Outfit Details:
Dress: Swapped (via Anna)
Cardigan: Urban Renewal (via a clothing swap)
Shoes: Target

  17. This really is a phenomenal outfit. I always have trouble photographing white; it always seems grey in pictures. I usually do a vintage-effect on them (like rollip) to help though.

    I hope you're enjoying your holiday .xo

  20. Ooo I love the red cardigan with your white dress. I've been wanting to wear my white lace dress with red tights, so I guess that's sort of a similar look? You look very cute!
