Hi everyone! Today’s outfit post is a flatlay come to life – that was at the top of my “Friday Flatlay” roundup last week! I love bringing these outfits to life. More often than not I throw a flatlay together as soon as I’ve decided to keep a piece in my closet (I would never show you guys an item I don’t intend on keeping. Not to call other bloggers out, because I don’t know for a fact that they do this – but I’ve read recently on other posts that a lot of bloggers buy things only to return and “shill” their finds. I write here to provide inspiration to you guys via clothes, new trends, new ideas, etc. but if I felt an item wasn’t worthy of keeping – I wouldn’t buy it in the first place lol! Ok rant wheel over. 🙂 Just had to get that out ha! ). So I usually put the flatlay together, jot down a couple outfit ideas if I have more than one for a piece – but sometimes I do have to slightly alter the outfit.
One example would be the black & white v-neck sweater shown last week in a flatlay. I love the sweater, but it fit a little shorter than expected with those jeans, so I would adjust to either high waisted jeans or tuck into a skirt. And that’s just because I carry my weight in the middle, not that the sweater is that short. I just prefer to cover up all the cookies and ice cream I’m addicted to. 😝
So anyway, this outfit actually came out just fine! I switched my jeans out only because the jeans in the flatlay were in the laundry, and I grabbed my new Sole Society bag (love!) – but other than that my vision worked out as planned! Yay!
And no lie – I was sweating during this photo – but, Florida is supposed to finally have a cool down this week. Lows in the 40s/50s and hi around 70. That’s sweater weather for this girl! The crappy part is, it usually only lasts like a day or two and then warms up again. So I have to play eenie-meenie-miney-mo on what sweater I want to pick to wear. 😝
However, this is a great sweater. It’s a little longer like a tunic, merino wool so not all itchy, but keeps you warm also. Comes in a ton of colors, but I was instantly drawn to this aqua color. It’s also 40% off. 🙂 No code or card needed. With all the fall color tones out right now, it was nice to throw on something a little less “moody” – hence the name for today’s post – “Spring in Fall.”
