This outfit is a combination of my vintage, thrift store, and bargains finds. The giraffe sweater I found on sale over the summer at Second Chance Consignment. I think the patched on giraffes are adorable and love how the top one create the outline of the neckline. The patchwork gives it the vintage personality that I admire. It is 100% wool, which is awesome for the winter, but my skin gets super itchy with wool. That is where my undershirt comes in, helps to create the layer between the wool and my skin. This denim button down top I found at Goodwill about a year ago and is my favorite undershirt, especially under sweaters. The denim makes that sweater/button down layered look more casual. Don’t let something unique scare you off, try pairing it with the basics in your closet and it will be a great accent to an outfit.
Nothing is better than finding a dress that work for multiple seasons. A piece that transitions helps you save money and space in your closet. Plus, there is a good chance you can find fall dresses on sale in November that would be perfect for the winter when layered. Look for pieces that you can either wear by itself or something that can be layered. Recently I found this maroon tunic by Roxy in Hawaii and loved it for a couple of different reasons. The first is its’ color; I love the merlot color trend this year. Secondly, the fabric is a light cotton, which I usually run warm so this is nice and breathable during the warmer days and the cooler days when I have a jacket over it. And third, I can throw on tights, boots, a jacket and my casual fall dress turns into a work outfit for the winter. For a winter look more towards the darker colors to pair with it. The darker colors will turn the beachy tunic look more into a wintery dress.
Beach vacation outfits don’t always have to be tank tops and shorts. If you are trying to cover your skin from the sun, a light colored, lightweight top, like this one worn by my sister, is perfect. It gives you that beach look, but keeps your skin safe. One of my favorite finds this summer was this skort. It makes the outfit feminine and more sophisticated in front and a comfortable and more functional back. Pairing these two pieces together gives you a mature look but still allows you to have fun on vacation!
