Bold Lips & Grungy Vibes #OOTD

With fall being only a few days away, it’s time to start thinking about slight wardrobe changes. Luckily for us Texans, the weather won’t be a factor in our outfit choices just yet…

Although layering is cute year round, I think the fall is the perfect time to experiment with it. Vests ranging from light and lacey, to thick and fleecy, and everything in between… Today I went with a classic denim vest (I guarantee you’ll be seeing more where this came from…!) layered on top of a casual shift dress.

Moment of complete honesty, y’all, this dress was purchased when I was 16 and I wore it on a college visit in Miami… To anyone who says to throw out all of your clothes, don’t listen! 😉 

To keep in line with the grungy/90s look of the dress + denim, I went with an easy shoe (because who says Chucks don’t go well with EVERYTHING?).

I dress up the casual look just a tad bit with some dark lips (NARS) and an intense brow (MAC color… shape by Jillian at Mini Luxe).

Accessorizing can be tricky when you’re trying to keep it casual, but not too casual. This gold chain from Banana Republic can be played up or played down depending on what it’s paired with, and that played a huge part is spending the money on it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn this, it’s so completely and totally worth the investment.

Now let’s talk arm candy… I’m absolutely OBSESSED with my leather wrap bracelet by Nakamol from my first Rocksbox shipment! I’ve been paring it with everything. You can bet your dollar that I bought this so I can keep it forever! (side note: can’t wait to see what comes this week, eeek!) I threw on some Alix & Ani bracelets over the wrap to make it a bit chunkier, and on the other arm kept it simple with some layering bracelets.
