geometric.

 chunky cream sweater: JCPenney / dress: gift from friend, reverie market / rubine tights: c/o We Love Colors / rings: f21, charming charlie's / bracelet: c/o Poshlocket / valora boots: c/o Blowfish Shoes

like the geometric pattern of my dress, this post will have several different angles. angle 01: currently obsessed with dresses turned into skirt (do you remember this dress from my birfday last year?) angle 02: my sister has totally been into 80's movies as of late, so with Ryan's recommendation, we watched Teen Wolf (the Michael J. Fox version) over the weekend. and oh my goodness, it was sooooo...80's and the good kind of stupid movie where you laugh until your stomach hurts. if you've seen it, the line "never say...die" has been making my sister and i crack up all weekend. angle 03: cozy, over-sized sweaters are my fave. i can't get enough of them.  i could live in them all the time. angle 04: excuse my almost non-existent lips in this post. i used a very neutral lip gloss - which i think looks better in real life than in these photos. the end.

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]

p.s. one more day left to enter the Honey Pot Pet Studio giveaway!

  1. How cute! I love the idea of turning dresses into skirts. It's something I've debated on doing with a few of mine, but wasn't sure if it would work. Now I see how cute it is when you do it, I'm totally psyched to try mine!

    The neutral gloss is nice. I'm on a neutral kick right now and really enjoying the look of subtle lips. Personally, I think it looks flattering on you.

    Happy Monday!

  3. Haha, didn't even notice the lack of your lips till you pointed it out.
    Probably because I was too mesmerized by your amazing outfit!
    Love everything you're wearing and how you transformed your dress into a skirt. I do that all the time for school. Haha, simplest outfit formula ever, but it makes the cutest looks.
    Adore your colored tights and geometric pattern <3

  6. Sigh, I never know what to use on my lips for outfit posts. More often than not I just use vaseline because I hate my lips in anything else. Always the conundrum for me.

    I always love your choice in tights. Such a great pop of color to any outfit.

  8. I think I have that same sweater, but I haven't worn it yet. I got it at a thrift store last week for $1.50! It's a petite size, though, so I'm still trying to figure out how to style it so it doesn't look too short in front. Maybe wearing it like this with a a dress would work! Thanks for the idea!

  9. I used to do it the other way and made some longish skirts into dresses. I did buy into that trend :p
    I love the over-sized jumper (I can't say sweater it's just not a word in the Aussie language haha). I will be on the look out for them come autumn/winter.

  21. This is the 2nd time in the last 2 days that I've seen a dress/skirt re-used like that. Awesome!

    And I, like you, canNOT get over the chunky comfy sweaters. Clothes to live in.
