{outfit} Blueberry Brownie

Two outfit posts in a row, I'm on a roll (maybe you'll get one tomorrow too...but that's unlikely, its hard taking photos in the morning, so cold!) And today's title is really random, but my outfit is brown with purple...so :)

It is funny to think about how our style changes over time when we become more confident in ourselves.  If this was 2 years ago I would NEVER wear what I wore yesterday.  The short skirt, shiny leopard print fabric, button down shirt and brown pumps are all things I would never wear together.  I only started wearing a button down a few months ago (this is still my only one, I need some more...)  And the REALLY funny thing is...this outfit is SO basic (apart from the skirt.) What are some things you wear now that you would not have worn in the past?

I tried to do something with my hair but it failed miserably, I didn't do it tight enough.  The photos don't show it well but I did an upside down french braid on the back of my head and then put it in a bun at the top. And I even added a cute comb thing with gems on it.  I think its because my hair is shorter so it doesn't stay as well as it used to...

Skirt: Zara (eBay) $30, Top: Express $35, Sweater: Forever 21 $11, Shoes: Payless $18, Necklace: Vanessa Mooney won from Sterling Style, Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop), Watch: Michael Kors
