This was inspired by this girl who worked at J.Crew and my outfit for today..
Now in NorCal, it's still not hot enough to wear shorts and crop tops. A very basic sweater, you should be able to find one in many stores, probably not of the same shade or pattern. (American Apparel, J.Crew, H&M) Some printed jeans or leggings, since they're what's hot. (H&M, American Apparel) A simple, plain, loose-fitted tank, from you summer wardrobe. (Cotton On, H&M, J.Crew, Forever21) A plain scarf, infinity or not, to keep your neck out of the still-harsh wind. (H&M, J.Crew, Forever21, True Religion) A warm-toned bag, some printed bangles, necklace or not, if you want earring.. Now if the tone of your outfit is similar to this set's, pair it with a bright pair of pumps, or flats, if you love your feet. (NineWest, J.Crew)
For this look, it's best to have a high bun, maybe add some flowers or neutral-shaded accessories. Don't go overboard with makeup, simple eyeliner, mascara, and a warm-toned eyeshadow (please don't use blue) to give you a clean natural look. For a bolder look, change the shade of your lipstick. Always go with mattes for these looks. Orange, red, something perky to match your shoes.
Too bright and girly? Try wearing a darker cardigan or maybe an oversized button up shirt, with a leopard-printed scarf or something wild. Dark toned leggings or jeans, white tank, with a pair of red TOMs. No accessories. A high messy bun and winged eyeliner. My outfit today.
