Emerald Plaid

sweater: Target, leggings: ASOS, boots: Forever21, similar tunic (and love this one), bag: Kate Spade (similar), sunnies: Ray-Ban

Let's talk about these photos for a minute - they are in two locations, and my hair is worn two different ways. In location one - the wind was crazy and I look miserable. In location two - my hair looks better, my posture looks better - basically, it was just better. But I still kept a few of the firsr location - and funny enough, I cropped out my stank face, posted it on Instagram, and it's been my most popular post to date. Crazy how that one works! I liked shots from each set but each was lacking a little something - so I combined the two for this post.

But about this outfit - a few weeks ago at the French Connection event, Shelby from Pretty in the Pines was wearing these fab OTK boots. I've had my eye on the Stuart Weitzman boots for a long time, but just can't bite the bullet to spend around $800 on a pair. So when she spilled that these were Forever21, I couldn't order them fast enough! They also come in grey, which I need to order ASAP.

I paired it with my very first pair of leather leggings. I've had my eye on a pair for some time, but opted for these from ASOS ultimately because of the waistband. I topped it off with an ultra-cozy plaid sweater. I've realized that emerald is one of my favorite colors to wear, but it's what I have the least of, so anytime I see the color, I flock to it. This time, it just happened to be in Target. I can hardly resist a Target find - especially if it's plaid.
