Dressed for: My Favorite Cheat

Already Pretty outfit featuring knit moto jacket, Diane Von Furstenberg scarf, burgundy sweater, skinny black jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Logan Crossbody

Scarf – Diane Von Furstenberg via eBaysimilar colors
Jacket – via Twice – similar
Sweater – thrifted – similar
Jeans – Zuma courtesy Karen Kane
Booties – Steve Madden Winola (mine from last year, but these are exactly the same)
Bag – Rebecca Minkoff Logan (no longer available) – similar shape
Earrings – gift – similar

Just a few more snowy outfits … hang in there. Of course, by the time I use them all up it might have snowed again.

My favorite and most-used outfit-building cheat is to grab a multi-colored scarf and pull out a few colors from its pattern. Here, that just meant burgundy and black, but the scarf unifies those two beautifully and adds a bit more color overall. This is a great practice for color pairing inspiration, too: Look at an existing pattern to see colors that a professional designer has grouped, and then re-create the grouping with your own garments!

Dressed for: The Splits

Already Pretty outfit featuring denim moto jacket, asymmetric tunic, jeggings, black buckle ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff Logan crossbody

Jacket – Jag Jeans
Tunic – Chico’s via Twice
Jeggings – courtesy Karen Kane
Ankle boots – BareTraps Treena
Bag – Rebecca Minkoff Logan (no longer available) – similar shape
Necklace – Kali Butterfly
Earrings – Lava 9similar look

Can you see that sassy little split at the hem of this tunic? Such a unique detail, yet doesn’t distract from otherwise clean lines. I’ve been having fun layering it beneath jackets, but it’s super cute on its own, too. And it’s another Twice find, so secondhand. Shopping that site gets me to try brands I don’t generally consider for myself. Glad I gave this one a try!

Do you find that you’re more open, brand-wise, when shopping thrift or secondhand?

Dressed for: A Pleasant Surprise

Already Pretty outfit featuring brown sweater dress, brown leggings, John Fluevog Adriana Luna, distressed leather messenger bag

Sweater dress – Macy’s (no longer available) – similar – fuller skirt reg/plus
Leggings – Old Navy (no longer available) – similar
Boots – John Fluevog Adriana Luna
Bag –  Leather in Motion
Earrings – Glass Garden Beads  – similar look

We have now entered the part of the year during which my posted outfits clash with the current weather. I’ve got a small backlog, though, so please bear with a few more snowy shots!

The new style direction has really taken its toll on my Fluevog collection. All that remain now are this pair, my Haight sandals, and my Heidis. The bag is fairly new, and I would never have guessed that it would be a near-perfect match for the boots. Unexpected bonus!
