Blazer Series: Part 2

 

 

Since I started this series I decided I should publish a little “How to” for blazers.  They are so versatile but sometimes that can be really overwhelming when creating an outfit.  So here ya go!

Step One: Blazing it up. Find a great structured blazer.  If you don’t have one already I would recommend black or navy as they are very neutral and can go with many blouse options.

Step Two: Top of your game. A soft blouse/ t-shirt or sleeveless shirt to go under the blazer. For a more casual occasion I go with a plain t-shirt and for a dressier occasion a blouse. Feel free to spice it up with a pattern or a bright color! Just remember your shoes and accessories will need to compliment one another.

Step Three: A mean jean. A well fitting pair of jeans.  Remember jeans can be colored or regular.  Whatever you feel most comfortable in or whatever color is suiting your mood! I prefer a dark wash denim with my black blazer. It gives it that dressed up crisp look. But when I am going more casual a light wash jean is my “go-to”.

Step Four: Pump it up.  A nice pump really helps balance the jean and blazer look.  Gives you classy and edgy look. Go for a fun color (magenta) or pattern (leopard)!

Step Five: Bling, Bling.  A statement necklace is the icing on this outfit.  If you haven’t gone bold with your shoes, or top here is where you can make your impact.

Step Six: Show em’ what you got.  Have fun in your new outfit!

NYX Matte Lipstick Review

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous Valentine’s Day! I stopped by the store and picked up this new color and I am IN LOVE.

I picked the matte finish because I figured I can make it glossy if I want or leave it matte if I want. The best of both worlds am.i.right?!

I goes on smooth and has a great wear.  Also, it does’t seem to dry up my lips! For about $6 bucks I decided to try out a bold pink [Shocking Pink]! What do you think?

Copy Cat

With the warm weather starting to show its face, I was inspired by a pair of Tori Burch wedges I saw the other day.  WIth that being said I also think that sometimes we can “splurge” but other times we need to be economical.  So I have made a “look” that doesn’t think about cost and a copy cat look that is ALL FROM TARGET!  Let me know what you think!

They both have a day look top and a night on the town top.  I think it is great to build versatile outwits that are comfy but can go from day to night!
