Kitty Cats & Plaid

Hello! This photo was taken of my outfit one day this past weekend. I'm beginning to run out of new outfit ideas and have been playing around with layering more and more to try to create more looks. Since I took a bus from Philadelphia to Richmond, I wasn't able to bring all of my clothing back with me; in fact, I could only bring a suitcase and backpack so fitting enough clothes for over a month was quite the struggle. However, I think that I did a pretty good job with it. I brought back all of my favorite versatile pieces that are easily layered and styled with one another. 

This look revolves around two of my favorite dresses- my black and white kitty cat dress and a dark plaid shirtdress. I started the look with the kitty cat dress and layered the plaid shirtdress over it and left the shirtdress unbuttoned. The way that the kitty cat print and plaid interact has a unique, quirky appeal; I love the contrast between the two prints and the intertwined color palette of the patterns. I threw on a neutral vintage jacket over the dresses. 

In order to emphasize the classic school-girl feeling that the plaid shirtdress portrayed, I donned a pair of simple black tights with a pair of preppy vintage loafers. I also chose to wear my oversize glasses and swiped on bold red lipstick.
