Classic Chambray and Black

leopard print scarf via ebay, $8; thrifted Gap chambray shirt, $3; Forever 21 pleated skirt; Fitzwell flats, $76

Was inspired by another pin for this outfit. Loved the casual effortlessness of the chambray with the black pleats.

Also, I was experimenting with how to tie my scarf in the first pic. Not sure if I like it yet… Anyone know what that knot is called? Just saw it floating around Pinterest and thought I’d give it a go!

Happy Mix

First of all, you guys… Thank you for ALL of your comments, suggestions, stories, support, and love from my adult acne post. I was quite literally shaking with anxiety a whole day before it was even posted! I kept contemplating whether I was ready to reveal so much of myself…an ugly side no less. But I hated feeling alone through this. I felt like everyone had great, perfect complexion except for me. I realize how ridiculous that is now.. We’re all in this together (or were for the lucky ones!) If you know of anyone who is suffering from adult acne, please direct them to that post and let them know they are not alone, that they are beautiful, that their skin doesn’t define them. Now back to regular programming..

I’ve been avoiding cardigans lately… Maybe I cardiganed myself out? But when I saw this color peeking out from the sea of monstrous grandma prints at the thrift store, I had to snatch it! Plus, how else could I have recreated this J.Crew fall look kinda sorta?? They had me at chartreuse, stripes, and leopard…which is essentially everything. Let’s consider this the younger sister version of the J.Crew look… Anyway, buttoning it up all the way with a scarf (tutorial here!) to hide the v-neck makes it look like a regular loose, comfy sweater. I like! Wonder what other cardigans I can do this with…

What’s a sweater?

JCPenney brooch ; leopard print scarf via eBay, $8 ; yellow cardigan, swapped from Meredith (similar); thrifted skirt, $3; Fitzwell flats, $76

I swapped this sweater from Meredith a while ago but L.A. doesn’t know what sweaters are so by the end of the day, it was drenched in sweat. (Probably from my awesome ping pong skills.) Srsly, so cute! For the color combo, I was inspired by this look from Zara. I figured I’ll never wear leopard print shorts (Never say never?) so I subbed it for my scarf instead.

And if your scarf is missing something, add a brooch! or a flower!
