How We Wore It//Dark Fall Colors

Now that I'm participating in this How We Wore It collaboration as often as possible I've learned a few things:

1. The month flies by!
2. The more you make your husband pretend to be a photographer, the easier it gets for both of you
3. The more creative you get
4. The more confident you get (more on that with the next collaboration!)

Here are the basic ins and outs of the How We Wore It collaboration:

Brooke is the mastermind behind this collaboration and she does such an excellent job with this organizing everything and putting it together. Brooke sends us a picture of the outfit inspiration and we are all supposed to put our own spin on the outfit--not go out and purchase a similar look. I love the different styles it has introduced me to, not to mention all the bloggers who participate each month. If you want in on the next round, head to Brooke's blog and sign up!

The look for we were given came from Style Lovely:

At first I thought--oh, I have this-black and white are my wardrobe staples. I have SO much black and white. I just love it. 

But the day for pictures came and I suddenly changed my mind--I thought that instead of just going the black and white dressier route--which is my "go-to" with black and white, I'd do something casual-like a chambray top with a black skirt-in my head it was an amazing combo and I was so proud of myself for thinking past my initial comfort zone. But the chambray didn't quite pan out--my chambray top wasn't quite long enough and not as dark as I would have liked for the look I was going for. So I went with my original look but decided to add some denim. 

The look is casual yet edgy. My look is a bit dressier-but I tried to keep the edge with the "leather" on my skirt and the boots--I tried to tone it down a little with the denim jacket. 

The black and white top I'm wearing came with tags still on from thredUP--it was under $10. (Use this link for a $20 credit to thredUP and see why I love it so much--or read this thredUP review of mine)
