Outfit of the Day: Red, White & Black!

The weather was finally nice enough the other day to do some OOTD photos, so here is an ensemble I've been especially loving lately. I like the simplicity of the colors mixed with the complexity of the sweater design. A bit optical illusion-esque, that sweater is.

Sweater: Asos
Denim: Seven For All Mankind
Boots: Target


Scarf: Dress Barn
Watch: Phosphor


Earrings: local shop

I barrel curled my hair using a 1" iron, then shook it out with my fingers to loosen it up a bit!


I've been absolutely loving these black riding boots from Target lately. They're super comfortable, and I love the look of these from the back!


Here's the sweater without the scarf. I love the neckline and 3/4 sleeves. I think it goes really nicely with the print!


For pants, these jeans from Seven For All Mankind are one of my all time favorite pairs. They are the "Straight" style, which means they are skinny all the way to about mid-calf, then loosen a bit. They're really comfortable and fit my body type well.


For makeup, I'm wearing neutral colors. This is definitely a more casual outfit for me, so I kept the same idea with my makeup.


Have a great weekend everyone!
xx, Allison
