I Feel Pretty | Perfect

Do you have that perfect go-to outfit that you wear over and over?

I do and today I’m going to show you mine.

I’m not ever sure what’s so perfect about it.  It’s nothing special.   But it incorporates all of my favorite things – layers, a comfy knit, a scarf, skinny jeans and boots.

Let’s start with the shirt.  I bought it for a print shoot last year and honestly thought I would never wear it again.  I just wasn’t that crazy about the color.  Even though it looks burgundy in these photos, it’s more of a deep purple and I don’t wear dark colors very often.

I started pairing it up in different ways – half tucked with boyfriend jeans, loose over leggings and layered with skinny jeans.  It quickly became a wardrobe staple.

One chilly day, I threw a knit open front vest and scarf on with it and a new favorite outfit was born.

  • I knew that was you!! I was looking through my James Avery catalog just the other day:) Also I have that same burgundy shirt and did the same thing; bought it, didn’t wear it and then it suddenly became one of my favorite “throw on and look fabulous” shirts;)

  • I think it’s perfect, too. It’s cozy and comfortable looking, but sophisticated at the same time. We mommas need to stop thinking that comfortable = sloppy.

    Love it! New FB and Bloglovin’ follower! Thanks for stopping by “this little light” and your fun comment. I loved those little bell bottoms …

  • Could you get any prettier? Perfect layering, perfect boots, always a perfect smile!
    I will try to remember to link up next time! Getting old and my memories aren’t so sharp these days. 😆

  • So you’re a print model? Makes sense since you’re so gorgeous! This outfit looks like the perfect comfy and stylish combo. That top really is a pretty color. I’d love to be wearing this right now on this snowy day rather than my slacks and button down! Haha.
