Stressed Depressed but Well Dressed + Giveaway

Stressed Depressed but Well Dressed + Giveaway

When I saw this t-shirt that read, “Stressed Depressed but well Dressed” at Brandy Melville, I had to have it. Graduating from university has many young adults in a panic about what to do with the rest of their lives (answer: go back to school), and while the shirt is self-deprecating, it’s also a little bit snarky and uplifting. Despite uncertainty at the moment, we’re still young and talented, and without a doubt, well dressed. I paired the crop top with a burgundy maxi skirt, floppy hat and large tote – which I’m giving away below.

Tshirt is from Brandy Melville, jersey burgundy maxi skirt c/o Nowistyle, floppy wool hat from H&M and a trapeze tote c/o Nowistyle.

While the temperatures last week were nearly balmy, I still wanted to put together a fall-inspired look. The hat covers up any bad hair days and the skirt is still breezy, yet the fall-appropriate colour brings the maxi skirt into this season. I wore the skirt with a cropped tshirt, but you could easily swap it for a long sleeved turtleneck or lightweight cashmere sweater once the temperatures drop.

I accessorized with some gold jewelry, including a dainty initial bracelet c/o She Bijou, my Michael Kors tortoiseshell and gold watch, and a large heavy gold bracelet Bobby Raffin gave me for my birthday. I love the play between dainty and heavyweight chains and the gold feels warm on the skin.
