First things first – I am not in Maine. Not even close. Nope, I am still in southern Louisiana. I let the boyfriend pick the location for this shoot. The entire time we were here he kept saying “it looks like somewhere off the coast of Maine!!” and while I was editing my pictures, that is all I heard in my head over and over again. Hence the title. Moving on…
So, I kinda (majorly) failed at linking items in this post. Deepest apologies. I just couldn’t find anything! But hopefully this still gives you some great outfit inspiration, and I’m sure many of you have similar pieces in your closet already. Sweater dress? Plaid shirt? Puffer vest? Then you are good to go!
I came up with this outfit because I am already so tired of wearing a sweater and jeans every. day. Too monotonous for this girl. A great way to get more use out of that basic sweater dress in your closet is to layer a plaid shirt underneath it and pair it with a vest. It transforms the dress into a totally different look and adds great dimension to the outfit. Not to mention, all the cute layers are great to keep you warm while avoiding looking like a total bulky mess of winter wear.
Have you checked out the accessories at Forever 21 lately? They are so great! I was super excited to find this J.Crew look-alike necklace that I am wearing in this post. I have been wanting the (pricey) J.Crew version for forever now, but am so glad I didn’t spend the money on such a trendy piece of “dress up jewelry” as I like to call it. F21 is a great place to get the exact same look for a fraction of the cost.
