Honesty and accessories

This post is all about honesty. When I grabbed my tripod to take pictures, I almost ran back to my room to grab some accessories to slip on. But as I stood there debating this life-changing decision, I thought, No. I am going to be truthful and only wear what I wore today—jewelry or not. Here’s the breakdown:

Cardigan: Liz Claiborne via Goodwill (similar)
T-Shirt: Unknown
Denim: Dear (super old)
Boots: Goodwill
Bag: Vintage Coach via Garage sale
Hat: Kohl’s (similar

We had some seriously fall-like weather this past weekend, and I was waiting for the temps to dip below 70 to pull this hat out of my closet. I certainly love ladylike looks, but I also am drawn to tougher looks, as well. This hat just begs to be paired with a more rock ‘n’ roll look … which to me translates into black boots and leopard. :)
