Casual Autumn Outfit Styled By Our Wood Home

Do you ever buy something for your closet, get super excited, and then become really unsure of how to wear it?

That’s what happened to me and these red t-strap flats. They’re as cute as can be but I’ve only mustered up wearing them once for the Fourth of July.


Thankfully, Christina of Our Wood Home stepped in with her unique eye for style and came up with a great casual autumn outfit revolving around these fabulous shoes.

In her own words…

When I was choosing an outfit for Hannah I went with the classic black and white with red combo because it is…well, classic!  This dress jumped out at me because it looks cool enough to wear in September without the risk of getting too hot if the weather decides to be unseasonably warm.  The dress and shoes look great on their own but seem to simple for Hannah’s fun style, which is why I topped it with the lacey vest.


I couldn’t agree with her more! This black and white striped dress (yep, more stripes!) is a staple in my wardrobe, as it should be in yours. Christina geniusly paired it with these flats because you can’t go wrong pairing red & stripes together because really, they are made for one another.

She also added some extra interest to this outfit with the addition of the white lace vest I previously thrifted. Funny enough, that’s another one of those items in my closet that stumps me on how to style it. For shame, I know.

The red lipstick was my own idea. Hey, can you blame me when it looks so cool with purple hair?


A big thanks to Christina for styling this look for me! Be sure to go over to her blog to see how I dressed her in the some of the sunniest hues ever to reflect a beautiful orange statement necklace she picked out. You’re going to want to recreate it ASAP.

When Christina is not blogging, she can also be found on Pinterest, Facebook, and working on projects around her home. She is certainly a creative powerhouse!

I’m always excited to have somebody else come up with an outfit for me. See what Ruta and Hannah have done for me in the past. Want to be next? Pop me an e-mail!
