The look: Faded Glory men's long sleeve navy plaid flannel // Joe's Jeans the skinny in dark indigo stretch // Kerisma red infinity scarf // cowboy boots
My first real flannel shirt! A mens shirt can look silly if you don't get the right size. I got a small and have to roll the sleeves up, but when you find the right size it should have that perfect slouchy fit that doesn't look too frumpy. I also am now on the flannel-wagon because not only is it cute, but it is super comfy. This is the perfect, little effort outfit for going to class and still looking like you put yourself together. I am a huge fan of infinity scarves, they're my number one go-to accessory to complete an outfit; plus they're insanely cute. Hope you have a great weekend!
It is scientifically proven that anyone can slip on a black leather jacket and instantly transform into a bad girl. I bring good news: fashion forecasters say leather is the new denim and it's here to stay. Leather can be edgy, sporty, or downright girly depending on how it's styled. If you can't seem to find your inner biker chick and don't think you can pull leather off, grab a leather pencil skirt like my girl in the bottom right with a flowy blouse tucked and you will just radiate NYC chic. My only words of caution are to steer clear of an entire leather outfit, unless your name is Michelle Pfeiffer. You will not regret introducing Falls hottest trend to your closet. Don't be afraid to try something new ;)
The look: royal blue dress from TJ Maxx (identical this mini dress by American Apparel) // H&M leopard cardigan // Frye lindsey spur boots in redwood // Sweetie Pie Jewelry double-ball blair earrings in gold // Spanx tight-end tights reversible between black and dark brown
Although not every color in the outfit "matches" they do coordinate. If you take anything away from this blog, let it be COORDINATION IS KEY. The blue popping against the leopard (I've finally learned how to differentiate leopard from cheetah) is clearly the base of the outfit and the leg wear brings it home. The earrings give the outfit the perfect sparkle effect to balance out the roughness of the boots. And yes, I see the black in my sweater. How do I have the guts to wear black in conjunction with brown? Because I say black and brown DO go together, within reason, of course. Don't be afraid to make your own rules; that's the beauty of clothes. Wear what you're comfortable in!

I'm initiating what I like to call "Pinterest Tuesday" to the calendar of Overdressed Always. For the inaugural event I've chosen a topic to swoon over. Fall is in full swing and that means it is everyones favorite season. Tis the season to L A Y E R! I found the most helpful layering guide on Pinterest that couldn't have gone unshared. Now that I go to school in the mountains (Go App State!) I will have plenty of more opportunities to experiment with button downs & sweaters. The fun part is there are so many outfit options because you can mix it up and create a totally different look just by changing the sweater, for example. My favorite example on the chart is the black & white polka dots paired with the bright purple, cable-knit sweater. Purple is just the best color, it goes with anything. Layering shouldn't be stressful, try to have fun with it. Remember to stay warm & look sleek!
The look: H&M low cut fringe dress in blush pink // Target vintage suede mary jane pumps and fishnet tights // Forever21 diamond headband // Moon & Lola ritz earrings

-Daisy Buchanan. In honor of Halloween, a costume post is absolutely in order. Over the past few months I've been obsessed with The Great Gatsby, thus my costume inspiration to be Daisy. It was very simple and assembled all from pieces already in my closet! Topped off with bright red lips and a beauty mark and I felt like one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's characters. I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!
