My Style: A Cute Fall Outfit for Date Night


I never do style posts. 
I'm just not the take-a-picture-of-myself-and-post-it-on-the-internet type....not that there's anything wrong with that.

You don't see style posts on this blog mostly because I don't think I ever look cute enough to justify it. Well, that and I just don't think about it. My insecurity with my wardrobe started 26 years ago when I was born. It continued through high school, where I wore sweatpants and sweatshirts a lot. Back then I was a huge dork, so I didn't really care what I looked like because I didn't talk to boys. 

Then I went to college and started talking to boys, so I tried to step up my game. But to be honest, I still don't feel like I have a handle on my style, and I pretty much think everyone else is a cuter dresser than I am. I scorned skinny jeans for a long time until I finally succumbed earlier this year and bought a pair I found on super sale. Then came the brown boots, which I just bought a few weeks ago. Apparently skinny jeans and boots are a thing now. I hate spending money on shoes, but I can already tell I'm going to get a lot of use out of these.

And behold: I actually put together a cute fall outfit for date night! High school me would be so proud.
P.S. My mom got me this necklace for Christmas last year from Noonday. (I originally saw it on this blog.) Buying from this site directly impacts impoverished women around the world. I love the necklace because it goes with almost everything. You can find it and other unique pieces here.

P.P.S. Here's what I did to my hair. After 800 tries, I finally figured out how to work a tiny side French braid.

The outfit is super cute. And super fashionable. And in style. And trendy. And whatever other words there are to express that you are current.

But the truth is, you always have awesome outfits. You are always stylish, trendy, and fashionable and always have been ("always" meaning - for the last four years). And I know I'm not the only one who thinks so. Everyone who knows you thinks so. I have heard a large number of people tell you so.

Last thing - rockin' braid. Love that the most.

Audra, thanks, friend! I definitely like the skinny jeans, even though I swore I would never buy them. I guess never say never :) I DO love my braid. Jordan says it's his favorite way I do my hair.

Anna, thanks so much! I seriously wear that necklace all the time.

This outfit is super cute!
I know what you mean though, about thinking that everyone else looks way cuter than me. I started doing my posts though, more so that I did TRY to get dressed and not just throw on a t shirt and jeans. It works for me. and you look great!
