DIY Flower Crown, Chain Crosses Necklace c/o Merrin & Gussy, Black Coat from H&M, Black & White Striped Dress c/o Motel Rocks, Thigh High Socks from Forever 21, Black Booties from White Mountain
This look ended up having a mod, nautical vibe to it even though I didn't have that in mind as I was putting together this outfit! Even though there's no navy blue or red in this outfit, as we commonly associate with the nautical trend, the stripes and the buttons on the coat have a very sailor girl-esque feel to them! Black and white always feels very fresh to me, and I love the way the color combination compliments the white in the flower crown. To match with the gold buttons, I accessorized with my cross necklace, and wore my long socks to stay warm. These socks seriously go with everything; now I can't stop wearing them!
This was actually the outfit, sans the necklace which I didn't own at the time, that I wore to National Portfolio Day a month ago. This dress was perfect because I wanted to wear something that would keep me warm but would still be bold enough to make a statement. You wouldn't be able to tell from only looking at the pictures, but the fabric on this dress is actually quite thick, which makes it a perfect dress for the colder seasons!
