Last week I posted how I styled the bottoms of my matching set [here] – and now I bring you how I styled the top. I paired the top with my favorite wide leg pants and fun gold accessories. The black chevron earrings I got years ago from a thrift store. The necklace is actually a gold chain belt I took from my moms closet so so long ago [obviously I knew it was a keeper of an accessory].
I had the opportunity to be featured in an upcoming coffee table and e-book that showcases local artists, shops, neighborhoods and eateries throughout Columbus. The Columbus Book Project will be launching in spring 2017 and I cannot wait to see the finished product. They asked many of the local bloggers [fashion and food] to come together and be featured as some of the city’s top contributors. Needless to say, the shoot was amazing because all of the bloggers are a joy to be around.
For the shoot, I chose to wear:
-My white wide legged pants, because they’re my favorite
-A crop top that I scored at a Fashion for Philanthropy event awhile back
-Flatform sandals, because there was no way I was climbing on a scaffold in heels [more on that later 😉 ]
-A snake print belt, because it was the first one I grabbed that fit through the pant belt loops [yes, sometimes function can totally drive an unexpected form].
For the shoot, we had individual shots and a group shot on a large scaffolding structure. I volunteered to be on the top floor [hence the sandals]. Overall, it was a ton of fun and I cannot wait for spring of next year to see the shots!
I was on the lookout for a great winter to spring transition jacket/coat [you know, the kind that’s not too heavy, not too light]. I found this perfect shade of red beauty and had to have it! The jacket also has the perfect amount of arm room [super important for layering] so anytime it’s a little chillier outside a chunky sweater fits perfectly under it!
What’s your go-to transition jacket? Let me know in the comments below, because I’m still on the prowl for the perfect trench coat!
A bright accessory can elevate any monochromatic or black and white look. I purchased this ALDO bag for a few reasons:
I needed a go-to bright bag to be added to my wardrobe
It was the perfect size – not too big or small – because I rarely carry much anyways
It is a crossbody bag but works perfect as a clutch just by tucking the strap in
The shade of yellow goes with just about everything in my closet
It was at a great price!
I finished off the look with a statement bangle to add contrast to the long black sleeve and voila! For the office, an office party, date night, or an event, you’ll be sure to get many compliments on this look!
