Outfit Evolution

This ensemble was the result of several outfitting missteps.

Started out wearing this red turtleneck under a gray dress.

Didn't like it.

Removed the dress to put on this gray skirt.

Gray skirt was too big.

Layered it with a black sweater vest.

Sweater vest looked funny tucked into the skirt.

Layered over it with the gray cardigan.

Tight pattern was overkill.

Peep toe booties were cold.

Layered with knee-high socks.

And here we are.

Scarf: Vintage, thrifted
Turtleneck: H&M
Sweater Vest: Target
Cardigan: Target brand, thrifted
Skirt: Old Navy
Tights: Macy's
Socks: Mom's sock drawer
Shoes: Payless

Well your trial & error approach worked out marvelously... you are just rocking out this week with fabulous ensembles :) I love how you just have a little bit of the tights exposed, which mix so well with the scarf pattern. A+!

haha--this cracked me up because it reminds me so much of how i get dressed in the morning.
i like the way this turned out though--i love the scarf as a finishing touch.
