Here's what I wore Friday night downtown. Jeremiah and I were just grabbing food, so I really just kind of threw this on without any forethought. I ended up loving how it turned out -- it seemed to fit the indie/artsy/collegiate vibe of downtown. I have walked on that sidewalk on the main street hundreds of times, but never really noticed the wall and how it was perfect for providing framing in a photo. Many of the buildings in the Athens area are older brick and Gothic-revival style buildings, so this one was a bit of a quirk.

Now that the weather is getting chillier, I'm foreseeing lots of outfits with my leather skirt. I'm not much of a leather wearer (yet), but the pencil length has made it easier to break into.

  1. Love all the layering hunnie....the stripes look fab on you:)

  2. That's a clever thought about the framing.

  3. Funky photo.. love the lighting.. and I know what you mean with the weather.. am trying to find places I can start taking pics outdoors in the bad weather... oh the challenges of fashion blogging!!
    happy Sunday! j

  6. Great post and great outfit..
    You are always so lovely!


  7. such a great look for you! The backdrop is a natural frame and looks amazing! This could easily be in a magazing:)

  8. That's a gift. Putting on clothes you don't give much thought to but end up looking good altogether. I don't have that gift yet. Maybe after a year in blogging or practice I will :)

  9. This outfit truly is indie and collegiate, just as you say. And the pattern mixing with the scarf and sweater is genius. Paisley can look dated (I love it anyway!), but the stripes really lived it up.

  10. It totally fits the artsy indie downtown vibe, and I really love it! The layers are perfect.

  11. Super cute!! The building really is a great frame! The skirt is really great, and the scarf and sweater are a nice mix to pull it all together! I hope you had a fun weekend! :)

  12. Looks like you two were having so much fun! Beautiful buildings and scenery :)

    I love your crossbody bag over the belt, too! I like the intersecting lines.

    I really like your blog, following on bloglovin!
