Finally jumped on the bandwagon and purchased a faux fur vest. It’s always been on my wishlist, but could never scoop one up at the right time. I adore creating a look that gives off a trendy and fancy vibe.
I debuted this cream vest jacket in December; I usually purchase something new for events, but didn’t feel like going full out. As I did some online searching, I found it at Target. End result: layering it over a blouse and burgundy pants for our Christmas Eve service.
A great option to brighten an outfit for fancier outings, church, or when you’re going out with friends. It’s lightweight, adds dimension to your ensemble, and it has pockets. Eek — I love that part. 🙂
Here’s how I styled it yesterday:
Sometimes when you wear a bright color, your mood changes. Or better yet, it can enhance what you’re feeling on the inside. I found this sleeveless Georgette tank in Citrus from Apt. 9. When I saw it on the rack, I knew it would be a good addition to my summer ensemble. Kohl’s always comes through with the nice deals. Plus, I didn’t have any yellow in my repertoire. Shameful!
My desire to look extra fancy for Christmas usually hits a roadblock every year. I don’t shop early enough or the outfit idea doesn’t come to me until the last minute. Discouragement creeps in and I have to keep pushing towards my goal = look decent and stylish. In addition to photo ops, I sing at my church’s Christmas Eve/Morning service. I stand in front of everyone so I can’t look busted. (Yowza!) The combination of looking nice and comfortable is important to me.
I wore black and burgundy last year, so I wanted to try a different color scheme. A few years back, I wore a sleeveless black dress with a gold scarf. It was reasonable and easy enough to duplicate this look.
Last month, I started a series called Dressing Up For Spring. We talked about cute heels, and now here is part two.
What makes your wardrobe Spring-like? In my mind, clothes that are lightweight, bright or soft hues, giving you a warm feel. Plus, depending on the climate, with spring, you have more options with skirts and dresses, shoes, and more!
Here are four outfits I’ll be featuring:
Let’s go through the breakdown, shall we?
