When: Monday October 4, 2010

White dress: Stevens (Panama)
Striped sweater: Hot Topic
Black belt: El Costo (Panama)
Black tights: Target
Black Skecher Boots: BMB (Panama)
Silver purse: ? (Panama)

Where: Finished cleaning and organizing my apartment for my parents who arrive tomorrow!

Today was unexpectedly cold, so I had to bring out my trusty tights and boots! I actually really love boots and tights of all colors, so I'm pretty happy to be using them again :)

Today's outfit actually started with this striped sweater. This is one of those items that I use to looovvee when my style was more punker-ish but that now don't fit my style too much.

So what I did was pair this punker-ish sweater with a cute white dress to keep things "me" and feminine. I added chic details like the belt, silver accessories, and purse to go along with the entire rock-yet-feminine look.

BTW, my parents arrive tomorrow to visit me for an entire week and I just could not be happier!! So excited!! yaaiii!!

Do you still wear items that are no longer really your style? How do you make that work?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this striped sweater:

  1. Love the sweater belted- fabulous, and I really like it with purple too. I am really eclectic in my tastes so I don't think I can stick to any style enough to reject others totally- thus my overcrowded closet. But that's another post...:)

  2. real cool outfit. Smart and sharp. Beetlejuice comes to mind in fine taste. Got a kick out of seeing how the silver pop purse was cushioned into the outfit with the hidden compliments like the silver necklace and earings. The black puss+n boots add to the jump out at you cool look. as usual, a fun sight to see by anyone that passes by you. jgm

  3. So cute! I would never think of combining those items but I love the combo. LOVE the stripes!

  4. I've been wearing boots for a while now, but finally had to break out the tights this week.

    I love that it's still summery enough to wear a white dress though!
