Happy Monday! How was your weekend? My weekends are becoming more relaxing and with this pre-fall weather I am just in heaven. Fall is my favorite season of the year, probably because of the changing of leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, leggings and jackets- ah! I can’t get enough.
With Fall springing in on me and fast I began doing an inventory of my closet and got discouraged when I thought to myself “I have nothing to wear for pre-fall or fall weather,” which I know isn’t true it’s just I need new ways to style what I have from last year for a fresh new look until I can get a few new fall items from my wishlist (wishlist: mules, black booties, more leggings, sweatshirts, striped skirts, denim pants, etc).
I was digging through an old basket of clothes that needed mending and I found this dress (from this post). I had wondered where this dress had gone too as I had only worn it twice. Once I looked at it with other items in my closet inspiration striked, and a little voice said in me “Hey I can pair this dress with my grey ankle booties and kimono,” and viola the look turned out better than I imagined…in fact this is one of my husbands favorite outfits and outfit shots. I can’t help but wink in return, its just so simple yet perfect for pre-fall wear.
My hubby thought this outfit was rather “grungy” but he loved it.
This whole ordeal about thinking I had nothing to wear for fall, and changing my mindset to remixing and being creative with what I already have turned out to be pretty good if you ask me.
See relevant Bible verse: Hebrews 13:5- Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
