You know those outfits you put on and you just get all tingly inside because they just feel RIGHT? Like you put something on and you just know it looks good AND it feels good AND it’s fun? I feel like no matter how many clothes you own (and I own a LOT of clothes), those pieces are harder to find than you’d think. I mean, to be honest, I’ll often find something and think “oh this is going to be one of those things that I just love and wear all the time!” And instead, I wear it a few times and never really love it all that much. There’s something about clothing stores and fitting rooms that can really trick you into thinking something looks better than it does! But that’s really the meaning behind Monday Mojo. It’s like those little pieces of magic in my closet that I can always pull out when I’m in doubt about what to wear.
Last week at the store, this dress came in. And instantly, I was attached to it. It’s this brand called Holding Horses that is sold at Anthropologie, and I LOVE it. Something about that brand is just special. Usually the pieces are plaid and they have a bit of a vintage look about them, but they are created in a slightly unique way that makes them just interesting and different from your normal plaid pieces. This dress is no exception. I LOVE this thing. It feels kind of like a hoe down meets ball gown dress (if that were even possible!) and it’s just comfy and flowy and makes me feel thinner than I actually am. MAGIC. Plus I love how it can be styled in different ways to change the look of it.
I thought it could be fun to give this dress a rocker edge so I put it over my new ankle zip skinny jeans from H&M and added my Jeffrey Campbell strappy booties. Lots of gold jewelry just because that adds a nice edge!
Fur. Yep. Tory Burch boots and this vintage fur collar and these earrings. These earrings from Gypsies Caravan. These earrings are like the most amazing earrings I’ve ever seen and with the fur, I kind of feel magical. It just is my new favorite combo.
Happy Monday! Hope you’ve found your magical outfit for the week! :)
