Hey everyone! I don’t think I said this in my previous post but HAPPY NOVEMBER!! It’s basically Christmas…LOL kidding we’re not quite there yet. Lately I have just been obsessed with denim! This was pretty obvious when I posted my 5 Ways to Style a Black Overall Dress for the Fall post. Check that out to see my favorite denim dress from Topshop and how to wear it! I usually have a hard time with fitted or denim skirts, but I found the perfect one from Forever 21 of all places! It’s normally hard for me to find something I truly love from Forever 21, even though it was my go to store when I was younger; my taste has evolved a lot since then. So I’ve put together a couple looks with the denim skirt that are perfect for the fall weather we get here in San Diego. The weather has been pretty bipolar so the options I have here are perfect for the fluctuating temperatures.
Pretty in Pink
Okay I have seriously been obsessing over this sweater lately! I’m so glad it’s been a little chilly so I can wear it whenever I want! This gorgeous pink color has a salmon tone to it, which I think makes it perfect for the fall. It brightens up any look and the fabric is just to die for. It’s so freaking soft and one of the thicker sweaters I own. They ended up not having my size so I actually got a Large and I’m so glad I did!! Sometimes I will intentionally buy sweaters like this super big so I can wrap myself up in them. Personally I think these types of pieces should be worn in an extra cozy way, who agrees?? They had a variety of different colors in this sweater, so I’ll leave a link here if you want to get your hands on one. I bought this from the BP section at Nordstrom’s!
I personally think the best way to style this with a denim skirt is to tuck it in the front. Since it’s so oversized it can easily cover up the details of the denim. I wear this skirt pretty high waisted, which is essential to this look. It has buttons instead of a zipper going all the way up and they’re covered by a small piece of fabric.
It seems the more I wear this skirt and wash it, the more distressed it becomes, which I absolutely love! The more worn, the more 90’s it looks and who doesn’t love that?? I wore some simple black boots with this outfit. They have beautiful gold detailing at the heels. I believe I bought this from Boohoo.com some time ago. These babies are a little stiff still but are getting more comfy as I break them in.
Bundle Up Buttercup!
This has absolutely been one of my favorite outfits lately! It was so easy to put together and SO effortless to wear! This is a great look for going to class if you’re a college student. It’s comfortable while still looking completely put together!
I absolutely adore the color of this cardigan! It’s one of my favorites for the fall or winter. I’ve also never had a cardigan that has short sleeves! It’s such a great cut and my hands are totally free if I have to do any sketching or designing. I usually like my cardigans or sweaters to be able to cover my hands but this is a nice change. I bought this at Melrose in the O.C.
I decided to pair this outfit with one of my favorite little backpacks. The color goes with everything and is great for little outings. I love how it looks against the burgundy cardigan! I bought this backpack about a year and a half ago in Boston at their Primark. It’s my go to beach backpack! And of course, for shoes I threw on my classic checkered Vans. I feel like I wear these things for every outfit, but they are just so perfect for any occasion! Maybe not for a wedding or something like that, but you know what I mean! I really wanted to keep this look super casual, so my Vans seemed to be the perfect fit! They’re insanely comfy so if you haven’t tried them on for yourself, here is a link if you’d like to order a pair.
I’ve been wearing this mustard colored T-shirt so often lately! Although it is a simple short sleeve tee, the sleeves almost reach my forearm. It’s a V neck and again I decided to tuck it into the denim skirt so it could be more visible. I bought this shirt from BP at Nordstrom’s (for a great price!) and it also comes in so many different colors. Here is the page where you can find all the various options if you’d like one for yourself or as a Christmas present (it’s never to early to start buying!)
P.S. I’m wearing a Kylie liquid matte lipstick in the shade “Gorg.” I have a full post about it here if you haven’t checked it out yet!
That’s all I have for you guys for this post! Let me know what you think of these looks or if you have any questions about the products! Hope you’re all stay warm and cozy in this chilly weather. To be honest, I’ve been drinking a lot of peppermint tea and I’m already using a Christmas mug. Oops! Until next time! xx
