Oct. 4 – Fall Outfit Inspiration

Now that October is here, it’s cooling down a little for most. (Sadly, Phoenix is still sporting over 100 degree highs…) So… I thought I would show some photos of fall outfit inspiration.

One of my most consistent fashion inspiration is Miss Louie (@missejlouie on IG). Her simple and tailored looks are easy to emulate or a base for some funky style exploration!

The first outfit reflects more of what I will be wearing this fall, since I’m not quite acclimated to the Phoenix weather. The wedges mix a summery vibe with a more fall color palette when paired with the darker sundress. More delicate jewelry let’s the dress and shoes shine in that perfect summer/fall transition.

The second outfit is a vibe I am here for this fall. The mix of more “casual” with more “dressy” elements creates a nice dynamic outfit, even if it’s a monochromatic black/white/gray palette like done here! While it is certainly to warm for me to rock a blanket scarf right now, I will definitely be busting out my wide leg black trousers and rock the same color palette!

The mixing of casual and dressy is also evident in my other outfit inspiration photos for this fall!

I love the graphic tee and heeled booties paired together, which both of these above outfits do! I’m definitely going to have to get more graphic tees so that I can do this! I think these two outfits also show the range that this pairing can have. From cardigan to raw hemmed jeans, graphic tees and booties will coordinate!

These next (and last) two outfits are more dressy than the previous two. I am crazy about the pencil skirt with casual shoes! The difference in texture between the skirt and the cardigan also adds visual interest that I adore.

I am also truly envious of that super cute trench dress. One thing you can takeaway from this inspiration is that layering a turtleneck is a great way to transition into cooler weather! I have no idea when it’ll be cool enough for me to wear a turtleneck, but it’s still super cute!

I’m hoping that it’ll cool down soon and I can do some photo shoots for you guys with my thrift finds from this summer and here in Phoenix! Until that day comes, stay healthy and happy!

Inspiration Station, OOTD Posts

July 26: Instagram Outfit Inspiration

Today I’m bringing you four OOTD posts that I found inspiring on Instagram – and all of which tie into switching into my warmer climate wardrobe!

First is a post is from @girlthrifted, who is rocking a lovely straw hat and wedge sandals. Since Arizona is one of the sunniest places in the United States, I love finding cute OOTD posts that have a straw hat (or any larger brimmed hat)!

Second is from @zuzu.reinhard, wearing a bright crop and a wide leg patterned pant. While I’m not a huge crop fan for myself, I can easily swap out the crop for a regular tee.

Third, with two outfits, is an OOTD post from @scandimuses. Both outfits are an effortless mix of casual and tailored pieces, which I love! You’ll likely see the influence of these outfits in a future post here on Zeebstyle, so stay tuned!

Hopefully you find these OOTD posts as inspiring as I did. Stay tuned! And, as always, stay safe, and stay healthy!

Feb 9: Next in Fashion Inspiration – Episode 4

The new Netflix show Next in Fashion was released not long ago, and (of course) I binged it! I wanted to share some of my inspiration from the fourth episode, Streetwear! I’m generally more polished in my style, so I wanted to show inspiration that contrasted with my usual aesthetic. Hopefully I can create looks off of these and show them to you when the weather gets warmer! (There is currently a foot of snow outside, and its a little chilly.)

Taken from Netflix’s Next in Fashion, Episode 4

The first outfit I was struck by was this over-sized sweatshirt cinched with a thick, corset-like belt action. (Please forgive the picture quality. I, for the life, of me, could not get these pictures to screenshot, so I took them with my phone.) Over-sized sweatshirts are super comfy, and a thick belt lets you wear them without losing your waistline. One great thing (of many) in this look is that the shoe pairings are nearly limitless. For a more casual look, you can pair it with sneakers or an ankle boot or a heel or thigh high boots!

The next was the layering in this lovely ensemble! Tops over a maxi dress look great, and a jacket on top provides even more interest. I also loved the bold layering and boots paired with the more subdued color palette. Also am in love with both the beanie and brimmed hat! This is an outfit inspiration I will definitely jump on when it gets warmer. A maxi dress offers more cover than most dresses, and that with the layering will help you stay warm if there’s a cool breeze on an early spring day. Like the previous outfit, the shoe options are vast, though the utilitarian vibe of both the shoes and jacket are a nice contrast to the sexy slit in the dress. A good variation might be a leather jacket (a trend for 2020) and a pump.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you’ve seen the show, let me know what outfits you were inspired by either in this episode or any of the others!

Announcement: Forgive my inconsistent posting, I’ll be doing more inspiration posts in the coming weeks. But alas, school must come first! (And hopefully my new laptop won’t die like my old one… rest in peace.) I was recently accepted to law school, and I definitely don’t want to slip in my last semester of undergrad!
