Over the past weekend, my friend Chelsey (https://chelseynacole.wordpress.com/) and I took advantage of the nice weather we had for about 30 seconds to shoot a little winter lookbook for y’all. I feel like it’s been forever since the last time I did one of these, so I’m super excited to be creating outfits again. Let’s get into it.
The first look I have is a bit on the laid-back-grungy-side. The over-sized button up with the deep purple hue brings that out in me. I wore a simple grey t-shirt underneath with some black skinny jeans and ankle boots. A look like this is perfect for those days you don’t feel like getting dressed, but know you would feel better trying a little bit. It was definitely the most comfortable of all these looks. This is something I wear on a regular basis throughout the winter.
I don’t know what it is about this look that is so moody. The grey wall just feels like winter and the soft pink amps up the mellow vibes. What I did to create this was wear a monochromatic pink t-shirt dress with the same grey top as the first look. I tied the shirt in a knot to make the silhouette more chic. The thigh high socks are for warmth and as you can see the boots are versatile.
To me, this outfit has a very blurred line between soft grunge and sad prep? What I’m saying is, I don’t know who I am. And I feel like this look definitely reads that. Maybe that’s why I love it so much.
I hope I’ll be able to wear cute dresses like this again in the near future. We’ll see. With this weather being warm and cold, it’s hard to know what to dress like in the mornings. I am a huge fan of layering, and I would love to continue being bold with dresses this season.
This look plays around a lot with neutrals. It has the neutral dress and shoes, the white socks, and the pale pink. I did the same thing with the prior look, where I threw a top over my dress. I like doing this to layer up and recreate a basic dress into a functional skirt. It keeps me warm while also letting me wear some of my favorite pieces. You could always throw on some cute tights underneath if the socks aren’t enough.
Are overalls still a thing? I don’t even care. This look gives me Nancy Wheeler inspiration. The stripes matched with overalls has and always will be a major mood. I’ve had these overalls for two years, and after being made fun of when I wore them the first time, I thought I’d put them up for good. But here we are, fresh into the new year, and I’m ready to venture out of my comfort zone again.
The dark denim overalls really set this look apart from other recreations. To make sure your figure still shows through, I like to wear a crop top underneath instead of a full t-shirt. I feel like the artist I am in this outfit. I honestly love this. I paired this look with my black faux leather booties.
Thanks for reading everybody. Chelsey and I had a lot of fun making this for you. I hope it inspires some look for y’all in the future.
