Did you recognize the skirt? It's actually the top I've worn in both outfit #1 and #2. Yes, of you have an off shoulder elastic too it will most likely fit around your waist. Yes the sleeves show, but it looks like an extra ruffle and I kinda dig the detail. I tucked the chambray button down into the skirt (really a top) and added my grandmas gold belt. It's the piece in my closet I could never live without!!
Outfit #2 is a bit tricky and will have some doubters. The jumper and strapless top. I folded the top of the jumper inside and stuck my legs through the arm holes. Because the top part has a zipper and has a plunging neck line I can fit my legs in there. Some might say then it will look bunchy around your legs but it doesn't. The legs are wide and loose and doesn't create any extra material. I too it off with a big belt so you don't see the fold.
I am going to try and create as many outfits as possible this December using 2 dresses, 3 tops, 1 skirt, and 1 jumper.
The first few outfits I'm going to stick with the green off the shoulder top. The natural article of clothing it will go with is the gold and black skirt. So I started with this, however I wore the skirt backwards because I like the gold zipper detail.

I'm hooked! I received these sunglasses in the mail, and yeah, I don't think I'll be buying anything else other than WearMe Pro when it comes to protecting my eyes and sporting the latestes trends! I dislike buying expensive sunglasses just to lose them, break them, or scratch them. WearMe Pro are so inexpensive that you have opportunity to buy as many styles as you want and not feel gulling when you accidentally leave them at the beach! You can choose from clear glasses, to stylish sunglasses, and even personalize any pair. The ones I'm wearing are gold wiring all around with unique cat eye detail, and blush reflective on the lenses. Seriously you need these in your life! And Christmas is around the corner, perfect for a stocking stuffer!
I received this product free of charge.
Just a quick outfit post and a Happy Thanksgiving! I wrote down what I'm thankful for everyday and the top of my list is always my family and this beautiful life!
Most of the time we wear a crop top with high waisted pants or jeans like I am wearing in the above picture. As I started my challenge of working one end of the closet to the other, I have to start with crop tops. I organize my closet from shortest to longest then by color in its little section. So naturally crop tops are the first to be remixed.
I decided to try wearing my crop tops over dresses. Can be any dress I own, long, short, maxi, bodycon etc. This also allows for me to wear a crop top in a more professional environment without showing skin. I added a cardigan to the look above because the crop too straps are spaghetti and the dress straps are tank. I didn't want the dress to show, so problem solved with cardio and it looks cute!
And here is my favorite look using a crop top over a dress! Bright maxi dresses and neautral crop tops make for fall attire. Then of course ankle boots and a faux leather bomber completes the edgy look I was going for.
Now I just made a summer maxi dress and a summery crop top a fall outfit. I'm all about expanding my wardrobe without expanding my money!

I used the same pants from my friendsgiving look and remixed them for a thanksgiving with the family. I chose miles instead of over the knee boots and a loose stripe top instead of a black v-neck tee. Accessories like a feather necklace and a hat just give that extra oomph tribute to the pilgrims and Indians.
I've made the mistake just about every year of wearing an oversized sweater or something bulky and I know I'll be cooking so I get hot! This year I found pieces that work with thanksgiving and I won't be sweating! Sometimes it just has to be about comfort.

I decided to come up with 2 looks one for a friendsgiving and the other will be for a family thanksgiving. This is what I'm considering decorating for the holidays this year! Just kidding. I will decorate, but first, a pretty tablescape for my favorite holiday!
I decided to keep it simple with a black tee, high waisted maroon jeans, and over the knee boots. I added my favorite choker necklace from Boho Betty that can also be doubled as a bracelet. Click the shop tab then the Boho Betty link to get yours for 20% off using my code: ALWAYSSAYGRACE.
The pants are stretchy enough to give me room for when I want to eat all the scrumptious food for thanksgiving, and the boots give the edge of kicking it up a notch for taking it to a party with friends than your regular family feast.

In my last ootd post I did an all white look with this crochet top this time I changed it up with black and white and a pop of blue. I wanted to give the top an edgy look so I decided to pair it with some black pleather leggings and my Valentino inspired heels. I was hoping you would be able to see the denim crop top a little better, but the idea was that this is a perfect alternative for those whom are hesitant about crop tops. This way it's not completely baring your stomach yet still gives the allusion of what a crop top is intended to do.
Did you know you don't always need to wear your necklaces as a necklace? Here I'm wearing one of my long necklaces as a chain belt. I was actually going to wear it as a necklace for the pop of blue color, but it snagged on the crochet which gave me the idea as a belt!

Before you start to think why would I need a baby blanket? I don't. At first I was searching for a baby shower gift and I came across NaniBear. I couldn't resist the pattern, the tiny little black teepees were calling out to me!
Just look how cute!? You tell me if you can resist it. Well even though I was shopping for a little baby girl it was gender neautral enough. However, I had another idea, to use it as a throw blanket for my sons bedroom.
Once I received the blanket I couldn't believe how soft it was! I never knew Bamboo was even a fabric, but it is!! The blanket is organic bamboo and cotton. Beautifully light and airy and extremely soft. No wonder babies love these! If you are expecting or have a wee one, or maybe just a quirk like me and get it for a throw blanket for your 7 yr. old son, you need this in your life!
