Some outfits feel more like costumes than actual outfits. I don’t know if that makes sense or not, but the best way to explain myself is by using today’s post as an example. Yesterday felt more like a costume day than an outfit day. My roommate spent the day singing and humming a certain song. Thus, I give you “Edelweiss.” Here’s the breakdown:

Sweater: Lands’ End via Goodwill
Skirt: Gap
Hat: Forever 21
Boots: BOC via a friend
Clutch: Brahmin (c/o)

This outfit morphed from wanting to wear my floppy, ‘70s-inspired hat to wanting to wear something slightly more unexpected with what could be a very dressy and nighttime maxi skirt. I thought the fair isle of the sweater added some casualness and unexpectedness to the overall look, and rather than wearing the obligatory black boot, I went for a more rugged look with some stacked-heel booties.
