Take Five

Take Five

Works Cited
dress: ruche
sweater: j crew (gift, yes I have two of the same sweater)
tights: we love colors
boots: steve madden
bracelets: from christopher

Guess what? I'm giving myself a quiet pat on the back because for four days in a row, I've abstained from belting at the waist. Maybe these ruffled cardigans exacerbate my accessories-phobia and have contributed to the four-day stretch without a belt, but I'm still secretly proud of myself for breaking my well-worn habits.
It's the little things, right? Hope you have a good weekend! xo.

I'm on the search from some maroon tights. I'll need to remind myself in 25 days or so that yours are exactly what I want.

Emily Kennedy said...

Oooh wow! I really like this version of the sweater. I love that you put it with burgundy tights. It has a great design to facilitate going beltless, because the ruffles go in at the waist and then flare back out to the hip, creating that visual V, where you usually won't find it with a cardigan. Super pretty lady!

Emily said...

Whenever I belt a cardigan the boy points at my chest awkwardly and says, "Are you sure it's supposed to be all the way up there?"

Ooooh, this sweater matches the leaves behind you just perfectly. You are the picture of fall here.

amber said...

you seriously have the cutest sweaters!! and i really like your boots too!

Best Foot Forward said...

I saw your feature over at KendiEveryday...well said! I really like the color combination you have going on here. And I'm definitely one of those people who buy things in multiple colors if it's an item I love, so I won't judge you :)Keep up the great remixing!

annie said...

I love that sweater... No wonder you have two! And I think I'm going to have to try that maroon color for tights... It looks so versatile!

Chelseabird said...

Love the color combo Tania. Those tights are my favorite!

thrifted finds said...

i've seen these tights on every fashionable girl and i want some!

Bad Taste Toast said...

This ruffled cardi is so adorable and has just the perfect colour! I love the dress too!

archives said...

loooooooooove this color combo!!! and ruffles are my fav thing ever, so this outfit is deemed an A+ winner!!! :)

Sydney said...

hahaha! GOOD FOR YOU! I am so failing at that right now. I wear the same weaved brown belt EVERY. DAY. It's getting a little pathetic. Way to break free from the habit!! whoo hoo! I'm giving you a LOUD pat on the back :)

Fashion Momma said...

You're a remixing genius, girl! And I love the color combo, here. I've been trying not to belt, too... and haven't all week! Although, I'm only on #3, while most are on #5! I'm trying HARD to step out of my box, though!

Kellie said...

Really think this is my fave on you. I absolutely love that color combo and need those tights!

The Coastal Chicster said...

I loved Kendi's feature on you! :) This outfit is super cute, and I've got to say, as a Virginia Tech graduate/huge Hokie fan, I have a great appreciation for mixing any shades of orange and maroon.

I know what you mean about the accessories habits. It's probably good that I'm on a shopping ban or I would have bought a black belt at LOFT yesterday...one that I already own in brown. :)

Enchanted Elle said...

That cardigan is perfection. And I love the color pairing! Great outfit!

Rebecca said...

That sweater is fantastic. I want to have two of it too.

Elle said...

last time i was in J. Crew they had a jillion of those sweaters on clearance in every color imaginable. you are seriously making me regret not scooping up one. or four.

Autumn Lynn said...

This outfit is so cute, I really want to put an outfit like this together!

poet said...

Awesome colors, and awesome ruffles!

Cheers,

I love this outfit! I can see no problem with owning two of that sweater - it's freaking adorable!!

Lauren said...

Love the fall coloring of this outfit - and how you offset it with the blue and white dress! And gotta love the ruffled cardigan, right? :)

Also, great interview at Kendi's blog today! I love how you compare the remix to revising a paper - not an analogy I had thought of before, but works so perfectly!

That cardigan is so cute, I'm not surprised you have two. I'd buy one in every colour, given the chance.

I just found your blog on collegefashion...can I say that you are the cutest fashion blogger ever! Your clothes and outfit choices are actually realistic for a small town college girl like me. I will definitely be back for inspiration!!

Mrs. D said...

LOVE this outfit! Also, the blog is an enjoyable read too. As a self-proclaimed cardigan junkie, I like your style. :)

Kelly said...

The color combination in this outfit is really pretty. :)

Angela said...

Those cranberry tights look awesome! I wouldn't have thought of pairing them with a cardi that color... but you totally pull it off! You look great!

Anne said...

Very cute. The ruffles on the sweater act like a nice belt on their own - at least for what I belt cardigans for: making the waist look nice and small!

Sorcha said...

That cardigan may be the cutest thing I've ever seen. Adore the ruffles!

Amy Z. said...

Love this outfit! It's my favorite one yet of your remixes!

LAPT said...

I have the same sweater in that color! It's my favorite!

jade said...

I'm the same way- when I find something I love, I always buy two!! It's such a sweet cardi too.

woodycakes said...

Two For Tea said...

This dress is very cute on you...it just seems like the essence of your style! I'm having so much fun watching you remix. Thanks for the inspiration :)

I love the pattern of your dress! Congrats on not belting your outfits :)


Just Better Together

Pam S said...

I love the use of complimentary colours, the blue just pops out next to the browns and dark reds which is great because normally such a mild blue might be swamped.
I saw those boots and thought for a minute they were mine, then I realised mine have a bigger heel, still for a moment I did wonder if my boots were playing with other people when I wasn't around.

angie said...

I liked how you talked about remixing over at Kendi's!Ruffles is your statement look to me!!!

Shop T.O. Live said...

Haha. You're like a belt addict! I do love when you belt at the waist, but it's good to change it up ever so often. And he colours of this outfit are perfect for fall - the cardigan looks like a beautiful burnt orange.

Amanda said...

Hey I'm a new reader - I saw your post on Kendi Everyday, and now I'm looking back at your outifts. I have gotten some serious outfit inspriation from you! I'm so excited to try some of your layering ideas! The boots, the cardigans, the belts...right up my alley. Love your style!

magdamagda said...

Diana said...

I love that ruffly sweater! This is such a perfect outfit for fall.

Sarah said...

Funny that you're not belting, because I didn't start wanting to belt things till I found this website.

katie said...
