I feel like this black and white outfit is a pretty classic look with a tiny bit of modern print mixing. It has a little bit of a 60s feel. The houndstooth skirt - yes it's houndstooth but it's hard to tell from far away - was a very early thrift find. It was hemmed into a mini skirt and I've been wearing it for years. This time I styled it with some tights with tiny dots, a fitted turtleneck shirt, a beret, and knee high boots. Something about tall boots and a mini skirt looks fantastic for fall. Also berets and turtlenecks.
Hats can really make a look but I always forget to add them to my outfits. I have a drawer filled with four berets but they're tucked away and I forget they're there. Anytime I remember, they end up making my outfit 100% better though! This black one was from H&M and is the perfect size for my small head. Plus it kept my head nice and toasty during a walk around town! Now I just need to remember to wear my non-beret hats...

How is your week going so far? Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving already? I'm looking forward to a couple days off work, eating lots of delicious foods, and spending time with family. I'll have to plan a Thanksgiving outfit that isn't just sweatpants too. Stretchy fit and flare dresses are always a good choice in my book. They leave ample room for stomach expansion!
Anyway, I hope you have a great Tuesday!
