These sunglasses again! See, I left my beloved Ray Bans at a friend’s house out of town, so I had to dig out my old second string sunnies in the meantime. Turns out, I might like them more than my RB’s — which is nuts, because I’m staunchly devoted to those Ray Bans. But all bets are off now! I love it when things surprise me like that.
Anyway. Hi. Happy Tuesday. :)
Let’s talk about this outfit:
Back in my fall 10×10 challenge, I wore an outfit that looked similar to this one. But, in my opinion, I overstyled it. (You can see it here — to me, it just has too much going on — the tied shirt, the floppy hat, the heels.)
Ever since I posted it, I’ve wanted a redo.
So, this is it! This time, I went simple, and I’m crazy about the end result.
Here’s why I think it works:
- Working with a single style. A tied shirt reads a little vintage and beachy, so I let it be what it was and paired it with flip flops and sunnies — instead of working against it and trying to elevate it with heels and accessories.
- Casual accessories. Instead of doing it up with heels and a hat, I kept my accessories casual and minimal — flip flops, a smaller bag with a long strap, and a tiny choker necklace.
- Tied shirt + higher waist. Before, I’d paired it with a mid rise, and it just didn’t quite have the same effect. The higher waist compliments the vintage vibe.
Sometimes, you don’t always get an outfit right the first time around — but you can always have a redo!
So tell me: Have you ever come up with a great idea for an outfit, only to find it didn’t work out like you planned? Did you end up redoing it with different styling? How did it work out?
