Time for outfit two!
In case you missed it, for the next two weeks, I’m joining forces with my blogging pal Lee of Style Bee, and we’re hosting a remix challenge: 10 pieces of clothing, 10 outfits, 10 days. Want to join? It’s not too late to jump in! Here’s my quick start guide.
Oh, hey. :) Just wearing this peachy-pink top again. In the short time I’ve had it, this little guy has worked up the ranks in my closet and is now hanging out in my top 3 favs. Can’t get enough of that color.
So far, I haven’t gotten too creative with styling it and I’m totally okay with that because I love it with black bottoms — black jeans, black denim cutoffs, stuff like that. I’ll branch out soon enough.
This outfit works for me today because it’s comfortable enough for working from home (stretchy jeans, sturdy tee), but it’s cute enough to go out tonight, too. We’re headed out to a community event — our local winery is putting on a little food and wine event for Easter. Cool, huh? I’m excited about it and we love supporting our local businesses and events.
I’ll probably add a statement necklace for the event and bring my long cardigan just in case I get chilly. But, gotta be honest, my jean jacket is calling my name with this outfit. Can’t you just see that denim blue looking so good with this peachy-pink + black palette? My jean jacket isn’t in my 10 pieces, but there’s a 20% chance I’m going to break the rules and wear it anyway. :)
BASIC OUTFIT, STATEMENT COLOR | You all know I use accessories sparingly. But can color be considered an accessory? :) Hah, okay maybe not, but it’s a statement (at least in my book!). So since this color is such a statement, it elevates this otherwise basic outfit.
ACCESSORIZE … OR NOT | This is a super simple look with no jewelry and not much styling — but it works for a day of working from home, like today. However, like I mentioned earlier, I’ll probably add a statement necklace and jacket when I go out later tonight.
CROP TOP + HIGH WAIST | When I included two crop tops in my 10 pieces, I knew this would become a reoccurring theme. It’s one of my favorite proportions to wear. Fair warning: you’ll see it a lot in these styling notes. :)
CUFFED JEANS + ANKLE BOOTIES | It’s a simple little styling move, but I gave the jeans a thicker cuff than usual so more ankle shows. That extra peek of skin makes this jeans + bootie combo feel less fall and more spring.
