My Outfit Monday: Miss November

Hello, everyone and happy my birthday month.


Halloween has passed, and though I adore my costume to the tune of wanting to wear it every single day for the rest of my life, that likely would be frowned upon, despite the fact that uniform dressing is so hot right now.



So, what to wear when you’re mourning the fact that you can’t look like All the Way May 24/7?


Brown. ’Tis the season, and ’tis time for me to get away from my staple color, black.


What we have here is a retro-inspired look on a backdrop of retro sheet music and a retro Beethoven bust. All retro all the time. If you’ve read any of my other My Outfit Monday posts, you likely know what that means: My cardigan is from ModCloth. I got it on sale for $25, and I heart it, and I will wear it on Thanksgiving and forever and always.


I bought my top at WalMart like a champion, taking home a pack of three tanks for $5.


My suede, caramel Max Studio skirt is part of The Great Nordstrom Rack Haul of 2015. That’s where this whole outfit began, and it set me back only $20.


And those ’70s-inspired platforms, you guys. I had my eye on them forever and waited patiently like a good girl until they went on sale in one of Red Dress Boutique’s mega warehouse blowouts. Guess how much they cost me. You’ll never guess, so I’ll just tell you: $5. $5! Five. Dollars.


That brings us to my pearl bowtie necklace. To be honest, this thing sat around in my jewelry box for a really long time. I worried it was too juvenile for a woman on the older end of the millennial spectrum, so I let my 5-year-old try it out first. Once I took the plunge and wore it to work, it got rave reviews. Huzzah! I snagged it on my way out of Kohl’s for somewhere in the $5 range.


So, what do you think? Is brown the new black?
