Blazer: Target. Sweater: H&M. Shorts and Jewelry: Forever 21. Heels: Aldo. Bag: Express.

Today I wore my new floral blazer, styled with a deep violet cable-knit sweater and matching pumps. Since the weather was sunny and warm, I wore white shorts for a summery feel. I initially had trouble deciding what accessories to style with this look. First I tried gold, then pearls, then finally figured that silver would best fit the cool tones in the outfit and give an overall sleek, modern style. I recently bought the choker necklace, which was on my wishlist all season. I love it! To finish, I added a simple white tote with silver hardware. Have a great week everyone!

Top, Blazer, Pants and Jewelry: Forever 21. Top (under): H&M. Heels: Payless. Bag: vintage.

Today was gorgeous and mild–perfect for shooting next to the water. This outfit is a prime example of using inexpensive items that look pricier than they are to create a look that’s chic, trendy and perfect for spring. When I first eyed this palm tree printed high-low top in the store, I thought, “What the hell would I do with that?!”, but I’ve found it’s those types of pieces that make the biggest statement and can really pull an outfit together in an eye-catching, distinctive way. To match the top I paired a sleeveless button-down sundress, which I left open to even out the proportions of the outfit. I added simple black cords, then a healthy dose of white with the collarless blazer and sandals. I finished with black and gold accessories for a more glamorous feel.

‘Til next time,
Laura

Coat and Sweater: vintage; Skirt, Belt and Jewelry: Forever 21; Heels: Aldo; Clutch: Topshop

I love to dress up! Always have. Unfortunately, being at college where I walk to class and work makes it difficult to pull off stiletto pumps on a daily basis. Nevertheless, when the mood strikes me, I like to pull out some heels and a vintage coat from my Mom’s closet. To keep this from looking overly dressy, I paired it with a chunky, animal print sweater. Let me know what you think!
