I have had a productive weekend so far! Today I was playing with textures and prints. I have had these teal, faux snakeskin printed jeggings for awhile now but I sometimes have trouble pairing them.
I fell in love the way this textured New York and Company tie vest looks with the jeggings. They are synergist pieces; they both work together to enhance the other. Together they create a classy, polished, chic look, perfect for a night out with friends or a date night. I even wore it to a church service.
The white Versona clutch and strappy Mossimo heels were added enhancements.
Before I close, I wanted to share two more of my personal styling tips.
1. Get other people's opinions if you are not sure. I am not always sure about certain looks I come up with but I get opinions from other people. For this post, I got input from my sister and my friend Jen.
2. Rule of Three. This is a rule I created for myself. If I buy something, especially if I am unsure of it, I try to find at least three different ways to style it. I use this rule to clean out my closet periodically too. If I can't find at least three ways to wear a certain piece, its time to part ways with it. This helps me out on several different levels. It helps me spend less on clothing (well.... sometimes =). It helps keep my closet from being overwhelmed with pieces that I do not even wear much. And it gives me ideas for future, go-to ensembles that I can recreate easily, thus removing the stress of having to find something first thing in the morning or when I am running late and cannot seem to find anything to wear.
I hope this helps a little! Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the weekend! =)
