Today’s outfit is not a before and after, instead it’s a day to night look. I’m teaching school today, and then going to dinner with friends this evening, so I wanted an outfit than can easily transition from one to the other.
I started with black jeans, because they are an easy base for any outfit. Plus, being black they will hide any dirt that I may get on them while at school today.
As most of you know, I rarely wear prints, but every now and then I find one I like such as this cute top with the little hearts. It’s fun and different! For my school outfit, I added a draped cardigan which is comfy and warm. I finished the look with flat black booties since I will be on my feet all day. These are super comfy- and best of all, I can wear socks with them!
For my evening outfit, I will swap out the cardigan for a blazer. I have been seeing a lot of blazers lately on Instagram, but most of them are oversized and more of a throwback to the 80’s. This fitted version is not as trendy, but it is still stylish and adds some polish to my look. To dress it up even more, I replaced the booties with these cute peep toe heels.
This one is for my neighbor, Laurel. She asked me a long time ago if I ever wear any prints besides stripes- and ever since then I’ve been thinking a lot about that. She’s right, I really tend to avoid any other prints. So, in order to expand my horizons a bit- here you go!
I’ve paired this cute printed top with my cream jacket. The bright red color , the cute pattern and the draping of the neckline makes it interesting.
As for my jacket, I’ve said this before, but it is honestly like wearing a sweatshirt. It’s cotton, so very comfy and not restrictive at all!
I’m also wearing this gorgeous mother of pearl necklace that a dear friend made me for my birthday. It adds a nice touch to my otherwise bare neckline.
On bottom I have my skinny jeans and brown boots. A polished and easy outfit. Now I’m off to see the Chimpmunks movie. UGH!~
