Ringing in the start of this week with what I consider to be my signature look. This is a look I can always count on! It has saved me many a time! When I am pressed for time and need a go-to outfit. Drinks with girlfriends. When I am an unsure of how dressy I need to be for an event. For date night or business/blogging meetings. Even shopping -this outfit can be perfect for all of those occasions!
How? Because it is accommodating and open for interpretation and for variations. I personally love this particular pairing, but I also love unexpected pops of color and textures, as well as mixing prints/patterns. I have found that when done minimally it can add charm and charisma to an outfit. But this is one of those outfits that can be mixed and matched with ease! Ditch the heels for flats or gladiator sandals (or any sandals) and boom -a stylish casual look. Switch out the denim vest for a structured blazer or perhaps a statement necklace -boom, two different looks. Even the bag can be switched out with a clutch or a fringed bag, and BOOM -different look.
That is what I love about this outfit. I can repeat it over and over, yet no one has to know! =D Which brings me to an announcement. We are quickly approaching the month of May! Last year I hosted a May style challenge where I opted to not buy any new pieces for the entire month and instead restyled pieces I already owned.
This May I feel inspired to repeat the Style Challenge but with a different take. This time, in addition to not spending money on new pieces, I feel inspired to find three ways to wear the pieces I already own. So for example, if it began today. This would be the first look. Wednesday, I would find a different way to style the denim vest, and Friday I would find one more way to style the vest.
I am hesitant to announce this but I do love a challenge, so maybe -if nothing else- I will do this for myself!
I look forward to hearing what you think!
