30for30: Three on Three

 


  
I'm kind of in love with the combination of these three colors. The purple adds color, but doesn't make the outfit too bright. Kind of gloomy and perfect for fall, in my opinion. I don't have much to do today, but I am going to make a trip to Target and Publix and I am willing to bet I will get some looks. Many fashion bloggers will understand this: small towns aren't always as accepting of fashion and they let you know by staring. I just smile back.

EDIT// Just got home from Target and Publix and wanted to confirm the weird looks and stares. 

On to a completely different subject, the weather here in central AL is lame. High 70's until Saturday. I picked my 30 with layering and warmth in mind. The tights today were completely unnecessary, but I like them with this outfit. So dear weather, you can't beat me. I will wear whatever I want.

Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: NY&Co.
Tights: Target
Shoes: Steve Madden


  

  


Maybe you noticed, but probably not. This skirt was not part of my original 30. After some thinking and evaluating, I decided my 30 could use another skirt - as I only had one. So I made a swap: this skirt for my black NY&Co. Stirrup pants. My logic for swapping was that I haven't worn them yet. That's ok, right? I think I can do without them. We will see...

I love the color combo too! Very cute. I think making a switch to the remix is totally legit, especially if things aren't working quite right.

Paige said...

You have such great taste! Love the purple :)

Ashley said...

Lookin' good! The colors together are genius! Looks like by Sunday our AL weather may start cooling down....finally!

Do you know who you remind me of, my new blogger friend? Blake Lively. You know, Serena from Gossip girl. Have you heard that before?

Ashley, that's so funny that you say that. You are the second person to tell me that since I started the 30x30. I've never been told that before - I'll most def. take that as a compliment! (:

I just found your blog through weardrobe, and I absolutely love this outfit! Those booties are adorable! Following you now!

oh yes i completely agree with the small town thing xxxx

KT said...

I think swapping is totally alright if you haven't worn the item yet. I did that this summer with one item and it really helped open up my selections. - Katy
PS I love the ruffle on these shoes and how well they blend in for the tights.

Love the colors too! Also, it isn't just small towns where you get weird stares/comments. I am in philadelphia and I wore black tights with black booties and a purple dress to work the other day and someone told me I looked like I belonged on a motorcycle....for wearing black booties! Granted this person wears fleece vests to the office....
