Fall outfit ideas

I know I encourage shopping on this blog, but it's always nice when you can look through your own closet and find new ways to put outfits together. One of the best ways to do so is to layer.

Thanks to polyvore.com, you can check out some of the outfits I dreamed up (mainly so I wouldn't blow through my measly paycheck in one day of online shopping).

An apology...and some dresses!

I'm soooooooooooo sorry for not having updated in ages! I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me... I have a good excuse! School has been absolutely kicking my butt and I've been dealing with that, along with many other issues.

Anyway, on to the good stuff.

I never thought I'd be the one to say this, but... I love dresses. They're pretty much the only thing I want to buy these days. I've got a lovely winter dress from the Alice Temperley for Target collection in grey thermal knit -- and it's quite possibly the warmest and most comfortable thing I own.

I also bought a white, kinda sheer summer dress from Target that I plan to wear this winter. Here's how I plan on wearing it:

I'd layer the green long-sleeve tee underneath the white dress and add the tights and knee high boots for warmth, then bundle up with a black puffy coat. If I ever get comfortable with the idea of taking pictures of myself and posting them on the internet, you can see how this looks in real life!
