Navy + Maroon

Ruffles & Volume | The Creative Closet

I am so excited to be joining Jana and Maegan for The Creative Closet today. This by far has been one of my favorite link ups that I continue to participate in! With all of the fun ideas that both Jana and Maegan have come up with every week, it makes me get creative with the clothing I already have in my closet and dream about a few pieces I can't wait to add to it! It has really inspired me to come out of my comfort zone and try thing that I never would have before.

When I started blogging about fashion, I never realized how much my style is all over the place. It is a little bit girlie (okay, a lot) + a little bit bohemian + a dash of classic inspiration. So, when I read Ruffles and Volume on Jana and Maegan's list, I instantly knew I had to snag the spot.! It was perfect.! 
Ruffles & Volume - Obey Sweatshirt + Bohme Skirt make a perfect fall outfit

I will admit, I didn't have a single outfit that has ruffles in my closet. But, I knew that I had the perfect idea of what I wanted to do for this week. I wanted an adorable skirt that I could pair with a sweater for fall and winter. It needed to have volume that added that girlie touch, to a comfy outfit. I wanted it to be darker in color, so it would pair perfectly with my fall and winter wardrobe. When I walked in Bohme a couple of weeks ago, I knew this was the exact skirt I had envisioned and I couldn't let it out of my hands.!

I decided to pair this skirt with a slouchy and comfy Obey sweatshirt, because I have a slight obsession with anything Obey. I couldn't help myself finish this outfit off with my favorite slouchy cowboy boots and my cream clutch.  
(side note : If you don't own anything Obey, run don't walk to your nearest store and snatch something  from their fall collection up; you will not be disappointed I promise)

I am so happy that the crisp air has finally made its way into Southern Utah and I am able to wear all of my favorite + some new fall outfits like this very one.! I am so excited to see what everyone has put together for this week!

  1. I LOVE how you chose to get creative and portray this look. It's so chic and I would never think to pair a sweater with a skirt like this, but it's perfection!

  2. I love the direction you took for this post! I'm not a big ruffle person either, so I totally feel you. It looks like it could double for the "cute and cozy" prompt in two weeks, too!

  3. How fun!! This is such a creative look, with so many interesting pairings, I can't get over it! I always end up sticking to two basic styles, I feel, and I really need to try and be more creative myself. Well done! :) It's completely cute and looks very comfortable too!

  4. The "pleated" skirt look is close enough to ruffles, right?! LOVE this cozy outfit, it's a perfect transition into fall! I'd never think to do the sweater/skirt thing!
