Don't Turn Around: Just Press Play!

casual Style Fashion Tales
My Day: 
The office had an unusual calming air, and all of those who were contained within the space seemed to be preoccupied with affairs unrelated to the professional agenda. A typical work day it was not, but toward the latter part of the day I decided to take the remaining parts of my work home because I had all things art related on my mine.
A few of us had scheduled to attend an art show, however due to a co-worker's (abrupt) life-interruption plans needed to be shifted at the last moment. I was not at all upset, instead I had time to catch a few snapshots before daylight decided to take a night's rest. The weather was mild, then windy, and slowly started to settle at the perfect temperature.
Time will soon transform for the season when an hour will make a slight, or for a large number of folks a major difference in completed tasks for the duration of a day. It's a time when days will be shorter and you bundle up in chunky knits to snuggle yourself into for extra warmth, or at least have the look of warm.  Although, I am dressed and ready, I felt the need to incorporate a "shorts" ensemble once more! Bring out the tights, boots, scarves, hats, and gloves, and then repeat.



Oscar de la Renta Blazer
After a self style analysis I realised that my outfit was:  a) one that I was happy to play on repeat, and  b) a look that took all of a few seconds to grab-and-go! Perhaps we all have one day a week, a month, or even a year when we have the thought of wanting a familiar outfit or that feeling of "whatever, let's just go with it" type of look.  It doesn't need a heavy story nor does it need to make sense to anyone else except YOU! Well, here is mine.

Inspiration: climate versatility:

When overheated I'm able to take off the jacket, because of the short-sleeved Tee underneath, and if cold there's always the option to put the jacket back on. 
Secondly, I wanted textured legwear: the patterned tights has an air-conditioning breeze that the lace naturally provides; and in the end pairing the boots was genuinely a must! (For some reason I tend to wear this particular style of tights with low boots.) 


Do you have any favourite items in your closet that you seem to wear together in the rhythm of repeat? 
Ladyofashion Style Tights
*Items I adore wearing at the moment: New beauty express eye brow kit by Anastasia: I've only used this twice for night, but I'd recommend this kit if you want to start doing your own brows to look like a pro!  I'm also loving NARS-clear gloss in Moon Fleet, and my new lipstick by Illamasqua in Corrupt, great look for a daytime dramatic touch.


The goods: Wool blazer-Oscar de la Renta, Shorts-Ladyofashion designed seen here, Graphic Tee-seen here, Lace tights-Express, Pin-gifted from grandmother, Boots-Love/modified & design by Ladyofashion, Lace DIY cuffs worn as hair bows, Clutch-Forever21.

  2. I love when I figure out an outfit that I can wear again and again.  I have had that happen a few times recently and it is so exciting!  I know.... it is the little things.... :)

  3. I love the textured net/lace tights with booties! And the blazer over the tee has a dress-me-up/dress-me-down appeal. Then there's you and your smile. Seriously could light a city block with one of your grins.

    Nice outfit, I like the tights and that blazer is beautiful... With the weather being a bit changeable, I'm a big fan of layering - meaning I can vary how much/little I wear throughout the day.  ;-) Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog, have a lovely week xo

  20. I love the combination of your feminine floral tights with those biker boots, it's a beautiful contrast :) I find myself pairing chunky sweaters with skinny pants, high-heeled ankle boots and pashminas. Works for me every time!

  23.  Hello sexy tights!!! Love that! And the red lips! Shorts and tights are my fave thing about fall.

    My go to outfit for every occasion is leather shorts/skirt + denim shirt...I LOVE this outfit, I wear it like I have nothing else in my closet. When everything seems to fit wrong and I'm hating everything I own I throw on that outfit and all is right :)

  25. Ahhhhh!  Madison, you look awesome!  You know I dig the “rock” look and you have it down. The jacket, t-shirt, tights, shorts and boots…all things I would totally have on repeat. You look stunning, my dear!

  35. At first I thought you were wearing a legging. But as I scrolled down, I realized it was actually stockings. That's a design that I've never seen before, and it surely did look great on you.
