dress: c/o winnie and kat // denim jacket: gap (similar here and here) // belt: kohls // booties: target // ring: c/o inpink // earrings: c/o white bear accessories // bag: c/o persunmall 

Although I definitely prefer to wear bright colors and patterns, it’s always fun to switch things up a bit and go for a completely neutral outfit. But still I couldn’t resist throwing some big, crazy earrings into the mix!

. . . . . . . . . . 
My dress I’m wearing is from a California based company called Winnie and Kat. My cardigan in this photo is also from their store and I’ve worn the heck out of it over the last few weeks (it’s perfect for plane flights)! Their company also offers opportunities to become independent stylists — check out the info here!
  • This is the perfect combination – love the way the denim jacket & booties dress down this look!

  • Great outfit. I love that it could easily be dressed up or down. Do you take your pictures with a tripod? I recently got one and mine aren't coming out nearly as nice. Just curious.

    • No, most of my photos (including these) are taken by my husband. Tripod photos take FOREEEEVVEEEERRR for me, and never turn out as nice. Plus it's so embarrassing to take photos of yourself with a tripod out in the open!

  • Dang girl, those earrings look HEAVY! I could never rock those, I think. The dress is amazing, will have to go check Winnie & Kat out!
