G.I. Jane

An unexpected - albeit welcome - side effect of this blog has been pinpointing personal style trends. In fact, it wasn't until after snapping photos did I realize that today's outfit is essentially the dressier version of the one I posted last Tuesday. It seems that this year's go-to outfit includes army green, topped by black, and adorned with a statement necklace. What's your uniform of choice this fall?

Outfit Notes: Sweater - Gap; Necklaces - J.Crew, Wendy Mink; Skirt - Target (on sale for only $8 in the store); Purse - Banana Republic; Ring - Forever21; Shoes - Nine West

  16. Great look - I love that way you combine all those trends. My uniform this fall is a gray jumper -- which sounds pretty unremarkable but it's chic and ever so comfy!

  18. That skirt is fantastic! You know I love lace. This season I am learning how flattering olive can be on nearly everyone's skintone. I don't know why I never realized this before.
    I know what you mean, I realize that I typically underaccessorize. I also have a morphed idea of what looks good/doesn't look good on my body. The photos have really helped shed light on all of that.

  24. MAJOR HOTNESS! Love turtlenecks! What do you think of the wearing turtleneck under strapless dress trend?

    Collaboration - yes please! Still saving the turquoise/pearl necklace for you if you still want or new collection piece if you prefer!

  31. The most attractive thing about your pictures is your big smile. I love people who can enjoy themselves.

  32. I'm SO glad that my Target still had that skirt because I was upset that I didn't buy the first time I saw it. I can't wait to start stying it.

  33. Gorgeous! yeah, it's funny how certain combinations just keep unconsciously creating themselves!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes, I agree. And I also love having a blog because it pushes me to be even more creative, and come up with style and outfits I might have otherwise missed. Loving your blog! Glad I found it!
