What Lies Underneath :: romper + sweater

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

It's a skirt, it's shorts, it's a dress...nope! It's a romper. Transform your summer favorite into an autumn staple by adding a sweater above and some tights and booties beneath. 
Notice something different? I felt like a change so, on a whim, my friend bleached the ends of my hair for a subtle ombre effect. I had never done anything drastic to my hair before but I love it! Who knows, maybe I'll start playing around with my color more often. 
These booties are fabulously chic sans heel and they're my favorite shoes to show off with black tights because they blend in so seamlessly. Comfortable enough for a hike and stylish enough to complete a polished ensemble. 
I threw on my black, leather bracelet for a touch of edge. Nothing beats this timeless and versatile piece.
Yes, the hat is back. Once I find a piece I love, I recycle it time and time again. You haven't seen the last of this gem! 
While styling this outfit I felt like I was playing dress up. I added fun pieces here and there to create a glamorous, slightly over-the-top feel. There's a lot going on - especially from my neck up - but I'm digging the unique effect all of these standout pieces have when paired together.

These are the last of my Virginia photos - so sad. What a beautiful setting for a fall photo shoot! The fog was incredibly thick, which was a bit unsafe to drive in but created such a unique effect on camera. I'm so pleased with how they turned out. Fall is such a magical time for transformation and I think that theme is represented well in these photos. 

After coming back from my trip to the mountains I've been hit hard with schoolwork. It's been a busy week but I can't complain too much because in about seven months college will be done and over with, and as we all know, once something is through you can't turn back. So you can find me in North Carolina enjoying my last months of being a student!

    Anyways, this is such a cool transitional outfit from warmer weather to the colder one! because who says you can't wear rompers in fall, right? :)
