DressThrift
There are rare occasions where I get hit with uncertainty when pulling outfits for my day - today was one of them.  As I'm sure everyone here does the multiple wardrobe change in the morning, I threw this little number on in a last ditch effort to not be naked throughout the day.  Its one of those pieces hanging on my rack that I purchased some time ago, but never got around to wearing.  It makes me wonder:  what else is lurking in there?  Its given me a little inspiration to rediscover my closet, anyhow.  This leads me to my question of the day:  What are examples of your fall back outfits?  Are your fall backs so prominent in your style that they've become go-to's?

The hat is fabulous.
My fall-back will always be stripes, usually paired with my favorite levis with the legs rolled up.

This dress is wonderful, and i love the ring on your thumb :D
My fall back outfits are boring solids, but i try to spice up up with lots of accessories or bright colored shoes :p

oh i have a lot of days that i am filled with uncertainty. i guess i have different fall-backs depending on the season. summer, definitely a dress, winter, skinny jeans and tall boots. so easy but still pulled together. i love this dress. i like that you wore it with black tights and shoes. you look great!! a lot of times, those outfits that we just throw on and think are just a last ditch effort turn out to be some of the greatest. i think this is simple chic!

Your hats are always great!! I love the dress.
It's normal for me to have some problems to decide what to wear. I guess I'm in the process to discover my own style.

The hat dresses up that tee dress so well! So cute! I'm currently living out of a suitcase for the next few months so nothing is really hiding in my "closet." Haha!

I sometimes find things I've never really worn and think 'oh I should wear that today' and then I pick up a high-waisted skirt and a loose t-shirt and off I go.

My fall back is usually an AA v-neck, skinny jeans, and flats. Uber chic, I know.

I really like this look though, the color goes great with your hair and the hat is really unique.

Whenever I have an outfit block and can't seem to put together a good outfit, I go to all black or simple simple simple! This is fantastic, doesn't look like you had trouble putting together an outfit. Love your turquoise ring! Hope we can chat soon, I miss you!!!

Joanna said...

Gorgeous outfit! Hmm, my fall back outfit is probably skinny jeans and a tee, it's so simple that I just wear it when I can't find anything to work with. xx

I love the outfit! The hat really pulls it together! Please visit my blog stormynightz.wordpress.com. My fall back outfit probably has to be what I'm wearing today. An orange tank top, some cutoff capris,flipflopps, a patterned scarf, a headband, and my big black glasses. Confusing I know but I'm extravegant! And awesome.

For colder months, I go for a cardigan, scarf and flats. In the summer, I do anything with a vest.
