These may not be the normal October outfits depending on where you are living. But it’s still wonderfully warm here in Arizona. And I am not one to rush the idea of wearing all the layers and such just because the calendar says a certain date.
It’s that number thing. The actual date on the calendar, our age, and the size of our clothes is just a number and should mean nothing. Wear what you want that fits, feels good, and keeps you comfortable for what the weather is really like.

This was one of the tops I scored at Goodwill recently, but I wasn’t too keen on how the collar doesn’t stand up.
That’s when I used my collar trick (seen in this short video here). And I used the same trick for Friday’s look below.
The shirt is from the kid’s section, and also tight to get on over my head. So I may be changing it up with the sewing machine one of these days.
This skirt is from when my cousin used to have a company that made skirts, purses, and kids’ dresses out of mixed and match material. I have a couple of these skirts as they are an A-line silhouette that makes them easy to wear.
I could easily still wear sandals since it’s warm, but I thought I would try to include some of my closed-toe shoes.
This pair was from Target years ago and I showcased 5 outfit ideas with them.
I really think the yellow belt pulled it all together. I wasn’t sure until I took the photo. And the belt was a thrift store find from Clothes Mentor. I actually found the same belt on Amazon for less money, haha. But it’s a great belt because it’s adjustable if you want to wear it at your waist or lower.
This embroidered top was from a month ago from Just Be Youtiful, but the sheer material makes it warmer than you think, so I had to wait for it to cool down before I could wear it.
I went with shades of pink with the look since it has burgundy trim on the top.
BTW, I ended up putting the bow at the neck to the back after these photos.
The beret is from my bestie, as it used to be her mother’s. I remember when I saw women wearing berets and couldn’t imagine wearing one myself. Now, I think they are so much fun!
Lesley gave me this maxi and I decided to wear it with a “top” over it.
This top is actually the kimono that I wore last week on Saturday (see it here). But I put it on upside down and then placed the front panels over my shoulders (held in place by my magnets).
It sounds convoluted, but here is the video of how I did it.

Sometimes it makes me laugh to figure out multiple ways to wear the same thing by turning, twisting, and being creative. Rob keeps asking how I think of these things, but mostly they are trial and error by playing with my clothes.
The maxi is a tad long, so I wore my platform sandals that are reversible. I’ve been surprised at how comfy they really are.
BTW, this kimono is from Just Be Youtiful and is a wonderful material (not polyester and uncomfortable). I have a discount code for anything on the site, JTOUCH15,
I tried pulling the ends of my shirt through my belt loops and then tucking them under in the first photo. But because the pants are loose, it felt too poofy both top and bottom. So I used an elastic tie for the ends in the front instead.
Can you even tell a difference? It felt different to me. And sometimes I think photos can help but also not tell the whole story. Anyways, isn’t it also interesting how the blue chambray pants lose their color in the sunlight?
I brought in pink shoes and accessories to give the outfit some punch! The pink Walking Cradles sandals are from a couple of seasons back but their “Cath” sandal is basically the same with a lower heel.
I have worn this skirt before as part of my color recipe to show that there are many, many options of different tops to wear with it.
Today I had fun with not only pink and red but two different prints. I thought it turned out fabulous.
The top isn’t really a v-neck top. It has a collar, which I tucked under. Here’s the video to showcase how easy that is.
This pair of sneakers is Jambu the “Lilac” style. You can use my code Style20 for anything on their site. They still have this style on their site because it’s a crowd favorite and it comes in many colors.
I just have to say that one of the vendors at the Farmer’s Market complimented my outfit saying it made me look so youthful!! That’s my goal!! My brain seems young, so why shouldn’t my outer appearance be the same?
My goal with my daily looks post is to find things that help inspire you with my daily outfits and to bring a smile and kindness to your life. I truly think that clothing is our way to express our personality visually.
