This week has been so insanely busy with shows & meetings here at NYFW, but I wanted to get a look up for you guys! I thought this striped sweater (that I cant find online but know it’s currently available in-stores) would be the perfect top for a casual Valentine’s Day if you’re not super into pink/red. The stripes are a light pink, red, and purple combo…so still in the holiday spirit, but not in your face pink.
From sheer mesh to solid turtlenecks, layering pieces have never been so big (and maximizing your wardrobe has never been so easy). Having something I can wear many more ways than one always helps me justify spending the money…but especially when it comes to tops. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a top and then resold it or donated it after one wear because “people already saw me in it”. Anyone else guilty of this? The older I get, the more I want to narrow down my wardrobe and start shopping smarter by investing in pieces that are higher quality and can be worn multiple ways. I love that you can wear this top by itself or layered under a dress like I’ve done here. Statement sleeves are here to stay and I’m all over it!
Serious relationship or not, I’ve always loved Valentine’s day. I’m definitely one of those hopeless romantics that loves, LOVE….like the girl that whole heartedly believes in the 5 Love Languages and makes her boyfriend read it. For me, I show my love by acts of service and receive love by words of affirmation (shocker). Basically any act of love on this V-Day (even if that was receiving flowers + a card from daddy in the years I’ve been single) gets me. Luckily I’ve found a man that gets me flowers not just on Valentines Day, but on more random days than I can count 🙂 Allow me to get a little deep with y’all today and hear our love story. Without further ado, meet my boyfriend, Kyle…
Plaid is predicted to be a top trend (yet again) in 2017, so what better way to incorporate it into your wardrobe than by adding a transitional piece that works for both cold & warm weather?
A good black jumpsuit can go a long ways, and in this case, can be worn two ways. Say hello to another under $100 piece that can be worn for work & play. Just because you work in an office and sit behind a desk, doesn’t mean your clothes have to match the boring job description.
Although I no longer work in the corporate world there are still many times in which I need to look like a business professional for meetings….and even though fashion is my forte, the rules still apply in my book. Office or business meeting, it’s not appropriate to wear your spaghetti strap black jumpsuit (even if there’s no cleavage involved). However, there’s no reason “work clothing” should be boring and exclusive to office use only. Today I’m showing you how to get the most out of your wardrobe and make one piece wearable for both work & play.
