(Sorry for the extreme overexposure you’re about to see. Postproduction can only fix so much.)
My favorite time of the year is fall because I can dress in that 1930s way where I look like I’m heading to some fantastical prep school rather than my actual retail job/college.
Now, I know it’s the middle of July and thus too hot to be dressing like this, but oops. I did it anyway.
If it’s anymore of an excuse, though, I was wearing it to work, which is always too freezing cold to not call for a fall wardrobe.
The outfit is actually a dress with a high-neck sweater layered over top. I love layering dresses and shirts/sweaters like that. In reality, I only own about six or seven skirts, but because of the crazy amount of layering I do, people probably think I own about a hundred.
So I guess you can say I’m secretly an outfit repeater.
Anyway to keep it all from looking frumpy, I simply pushed up the sleeves of my sweater. It changed the whole shape of the outfit, keeping it from looking like a sack. Also, simply breaking up the fabric by showing a little skin really helped modernize it.
And last but not least, the socks and shoes brought the outfit all together. I mean, what screams schoolgirl more than a pair of loafers and knee socks? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
And that is all. Thanks for reading, even though this was kind of pointless.
Until next time ❤
