RayBan Sunglasses / Fred Flare Necklace / Gap Sweater / H&M Trench / Thrifted Belt / Thrifted Dress (worn as a skirt) from Beacon’s Closet / Steve Madden “Warrick” Wedges
I’ll be honest, for most of the morning, I sat on my couch in my gray American Apparel V-neck and favorite oversized boxers, working on my computer, drinking coffee and eating toast. When it finally came time to enter the world of the living and leave the apartment to run errands, I struggled with what to wear. It’s still pretty muggy and wet out, so it’s been hard to fully embrace fall when the thought of putting on tights or boots makes me start to sweat. This ensemble was on the warmer side, but I love wearing a trench and there was a slight breeze, so I talked myself into layering. I finally left the apartment and walked to Washington Square Park where I met up with my good friend Kitt. (She was kind of enough to take these photos. Thanks again, Kitty!)
Now onto the remix part of the post: This skirt is actually a dress! I’ve worn here and here, and it’s one of my favorite finds from Beacon’s Closet. At first I pulled the sweater over the dress and just left it plain and untucked, but after staring in the mirror for a minute, I still felt something was missing. So instead, I pulled the top of the dress down, tucked it underneath, then tucked the sweater in over it, and belted the whole thing. Et voila, a new outfit was born!
