Style Files~What I Wore

If you are new around here, sometimes on Wednesdays, I share what I wore in an attempt to challenge myself to get dressed and seek inspiration from others sharing….


I saw these striped leggings at H&M (that JUST opened in Austin–yay!) recently and had to get them. I mulled over what to wear them with, and when I asked a teen girl what she’d wear them with, she said “sweater shirt.” I have one of those from a few years ago, so I plopped it on. I would have preferred it to be a little longer though….got my gold shoes at Target.


Photographer #1–what a good sport he is.

I got some boot socks at Target this year. Boots from Target 2 years ago. Shirt from Target this year. Jacket from Old Navy probably 10 years ago. Globe Necklace on Amazon. Gold bracelets from H&M.

If you are on my facebook page, I’ve had some challenges where if someone guesses the right answer, I will send them this globe necklace. I haven’t done that in a while…I should do that again, it’s fun!

Love this momma moment. Love that my photographer knows to capture all moments;)  I also love that she noticed the light behind me was beautiful–it was what photographers like to call the “golden” hour.

Then she didn’t like my static poses and told me to dance!

so I danced!

I love dressing with texture and layers–so much easier when it’s chilly outside. It makes for a more interesting outfit, better to photograph as well.

    Today I featured some boot socks I made from sleeves off an old sweater. Totally worked and so fun!

  7. You are so fun and stylish. How much do we LOVE H&M?? And by the way, you are TOTALLY channeling Connie Britton and I’m LOVING it!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      haha!! Umm, who is Connie Britton? I should know, right?

      • Connie Britton is an actress–Tami Taylor from Friday Night Lights, and she’s currently in the show Nashville. And she’s been in a lot of other stuff too. I ADORE her!!! The last few pics of you in this post–with your sunglasses, your boots, your hair, your personality, etc.,–you totally reminded me of her. She’s awesome. :)
