STYLE: OOTD

I am a houndstooth junkie. - it’s one pattern I really don't mind falling into. I’ve always been drawn to it and over the years I’ve accidentally built a pretty hefty houndstooth collection. I think if I wanted to I could dress in head-to-toe houndstooth (dare me?), as I have sweaters, shirts, heels, bags, necklaces, belts, headbands and more in my beloved graphic pattern. There’s just something about it; part studious British undergrad, part bold Mod, this pattern is timeless, cool and works for literally everyone.
I thrifted this houndstooth cardigan from Savers for around $4.00 last summer and now that there’s a definite chill in the air I finally get to wear it! Paired with a simple, super comfy jersey knit dress that I may or may not own in 7 DIFFERENT COLORS (hint: the answer is ‘may’) I’m in heaven.

I've been wearing this lipstick a lot that I got as a gift from my Nana! 
It's her shade and I can see why. Love That Pink by Revlon.

Also can I just say that grown up pigtails are the best? Yes, I suppose I can. Low and behind the ears with a little teasing is fast becoming one of my go-to looks as my hair grows out and I couldn’t be happier about it. Hannah posted a great how-to on this look over at xojane.

Dress: Target

Do you like pigtails on adults or is it a little too ‘creepy uncle’ feeling for you? Also, please tell me you own a single item of clothing in multiple colors so I feel slightly less crazy…

xoxo,
Michelle
