Gingham Style

By

All fall and winter long, I have been having fun with my Petite perfect shirt in mini-gingham from J Crew (sorry, they are sold out!). In fact, I have had so much fun that I have forgotten to post these pictures! The weather has been very warm here in Texas as spring approaches, so I thought I better post these cool weather pics before it was too late!

What’s your favorite look? Do you have a classic button up that you constantly find yourself mixing and matching?

A day-to-night look

By

A day-to-night look is important for Texas Falls, not just for frills, but for functionality as well. Most days are warm, but the nights tend to cool off. Layers are a must!

The basics I’m using for my day-to-night look here are J Crew’s Perfect Shirt and Toothpick Jean. And by the way, the toothpicks are the perfect skinny pant for short people. I have them rolled here, but they have a cropped fit, which on me translates as a normal length jean. Plus, they are super comfortable. Frilling, y’all.

If you can’t tell, this look practically screams “comfort”. And in case you couldn’t tell, I added the ever casually-chic, front-tuck. Perfect for a day of shopping or running errands.

The tartan pattern on this top reminds me that the holidays are indeed approaching, despite what the weather may have to say about it. Plus, the cotton fabric is super cozy, and I love pairing it with this plaid, red headband for an extra festive look.

 

For my night-time look I let my hair down, and – surprise-surprise – I added red lipstick for a pop of color.

In keeping with the comfortable, but festive theme, I slipped on my oversized merino pocket sweater. I also buttoned my top up completely. I want that tartan showing!

I also added my go-to black boots. I love how they make every outfit a little more funky and fun!
