Double Take: Early Fall Texture

Ready for a new Double Take? Thought so. This one is a bit of a stretch, but hear me out.

A while ago I saw this picture of Kendall Jenner: "Oh, that's cute," I thought, "too bad I don't wear pink". 

But I couldn't get it out of my head! Aside from the color, I loved the texture.

Texture everywhere: Wool skirt, cozy knit, laced shoes, furry bag. And, I was intrigued by the mix of warm textiles with lots of skin.  

Pre- #1yearNoShopping, I would have ventured out in obsessive search of similar items. 

This time, I ventured to the depths of my closet, and pulled anything and everything cashmere or wool. 

The result? All black, sorry. But this is where you need to hear me out: 

This old cashmere shell (like, used-to-be-my-mom's old) gets new life with a half tuck. And this wool skirt fits the bill well. 

It's certainly not an exact match, but it's the idea that triggered new combos that is the key here.

You guys, I tried so many combos of sweater-skirt tucks! Endurance. 

Once you find the right combo, add laced heels and an interesting bag. Ta-Da!

P.S - You can find the DIY tutorial for this fringe clutch 


Oddly, I'm happier with this outcome than if I'd found an exact match. 

I'm a firm believer in bouncing ideas and inspiration off anything and anyone we come across. 

This look was inspired into creation from a very different one; just imagine all the variations possible! 

What's your take? What can you pull out and put together?

Bounce on, sisters.
