Do you ever feel like each time you shop you buy similar looking things every time? Oh great, another off the shoulder blouse, or another crop top, let’s add another striped tee to the mix. Did you also know that it’s totally okay to do that? Everyone has a uniform whether they know it or not, and everyone has certain styles that they know are flattering on them. Now, don’t get me wrong, owning 25 striped tees might be a little overkill, but having what you know looks good can really help you put outfits together much easier.
One of my favorite pieces to buy is a long sleeve blouse. There are differences between the blouses such as fabric, neckline, color and print; however, there is also sleeve style. Lace on the sleeves, ruffles or ruching, cut outs, strings, you name it. A unique sleeve can always catch my eye – which leads me to this top I’m sharing today. I found this Mango top a few months ago and absolutely love the oversized cuffs at the bottom of the sleeves. The sleeves add a unique 70’s style to the top that I love.
How often do you shop vintage? I would shop vintage a ton back in the day but don’t so much anymore. It’s hard to come across vintage pieces that you know you’ll love and will hold up for more than just a year.
I found this vintage Chanel blazer about four years ago and to this day it’s one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I’m not sure how old it is, but the style, fit and detail are so timeless that I don’t think it will ever leave my closet!
For this look, I styled the vintage blazer with a pair of the comfiest pants from VAEWARD, a sweater and pumps. You can never go wrong with a classic black and white look.
·Keep your shoe simple with a loafer, sleek flat or low-heel pump
·A low bun looks great on almost everyone, and makes any look more polished
·Stud earrings and a watch are all you need to dress it up
For my athleisure work place look, I styled two amazing pieces from a brand I discovered called VAEWARD. The top is a muscle tee style with soft knit fabric and the track pants have a waffle knit pattern and are also super soft. The black piping on the pieces ties them together. Black loafers and simple jewelry complete the look.
