Trends in the Workplace Pt. Two | Pleated Skirt | Giveaway

Any excuse I get to wear a blazer in a unique way, I am all over it! I have loved this pleated skirt and blazer combo so much I have already worn it 4 times. Sorry to those who have seen it repeated!!



OUTFIT DETAILS
BLAZER | TOP (I have it in 3 colors and LIVE in them) | SKIRT c/o | HEELS | HANDBAG | BRACELET | NECKLACE  (30% off!) | LIPS (Snob)

A big trend is to wear a pleated skirt. This style is easy to wear to work because the hemline is the perfect length. I love the midi length! Wearing it with this scalloped tank is the perfect Summer combo! To make it work appropriate, and church appropriate because that’s where I first wore this look, I slipped this blazer over it.

This skirt is lined but I wore THIS slip under it just in case. I am wearing a medium since it’s European sizes and they run smaller. I have been able to tuck many different thickness levels of tops under it so the sizing is perfect, I need to find it in black.

One of my favorite trends to wear in the workplace and out is a blazer. It comes naturally to me but I know it doesn’t for everyone. I am sharing more ways to wear blazers as trendy pieces in the future! Plus, where to buy them cause I have like 15 of them and never spend more than $20 a piece.

Two Ways to wear a two piece outfit | giveaway

Affordable two piece set that can be worn multiple ways!

Versatility is key for making your wardrobe versatile and inexpensive. Sharing how I styled this two piece outfit two ways and MANY more options!

OUTFIT DETAILS
TWO PIECE STRIPE OUTFIT c/o | WHITE SKIRT c/o (obsessed!) | HEELS | HANDBAG | NECKLACE | EARRINGS | BRACELET | LIPS (Snob)

The number one way to make a small wardrobe and a small budget work is versatility, for example, this two piece outfit! You can wear the top with multiple bottom options as well as the skirt with multiple top options.

Here I took the top from the two piece set and paired it with my high-waisted pleated skirt, I happen to be OBSESSED. I have already worn it 4 times so it has quickly become a new staple piece in my wardrobe! This top can also be worn with high waisted denim shorts, jeans, or even a cute maxi skirt.

The matching top and skirt outfit is one of Jason’s new favorites! I love the flow of pattern, it makes you look super tall and lean. I also can’t say no to a high-waisted A-line skirt. It takes me back to my Kate Spade days. This skirt can also be worn with a blousy tank top, t-shirt, long sleeve blouse, or a light weight sweater!

Watch for the full blog post on the second outfit!

Spring Style Summer Style Tips and Tricks

Jean Jacket Style Guide | Body Type Tips

A jean jacket can be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe IF you buy the right one. I am sharing how to find the best fit for you and where to find it on a good deal! 



OUTFIT DETAILS
DRESS (old but similar linked) | JEAN JACKET | WEDGES | EARRINGS | RING | LIPS (Snob)

Buying a jean jacket and not looking like you are straight out of a family magazine from the 90’s is sometimes difficult. It all boils down to the sizing and styling for YOU. For years, I dreaded when my mom would have me wearing a jean jacket over an outfit. This is because it wasn’t the right one for me. Now I know how to style it and find the one meant for me. 

SIZING: This is my #1 tip. Size down one size. When do you ever button up your jean jacket? Never most likely. When you buy it in your typical size, it swallows you. You cannot see your outfit underneath it, all you see is your jacket. Next time you are trying on jean jackets, try one on in your typical size and a size smaller. You will then have a visual of what I am meaning. 

Here I am wearing an XS jean jacket, I typically wear a small or medium in jackets.

WASH: I typically go for a medium to dark wash. I like the contrast with muy lighter colored clothes. This also gives dimension to your outfit and can be used to make you look slimmer. Due to it being a darker wash, your eye naturally looks at the line where the jacket ends and my dress starts because of the contrast in colors. This happens to make you look at the smallest part of my body providing a very flattering look. I’ll talk more about length below!

CUT: Try and find a more tailored cut of jacket, this is always a more flattering shape on anyone. Sizing down a size, also helps with having a more tailored cut. If you are curvy, try one that has a drawstring waist! The length will draw your eye below your widest point and will give you a defined waistline.

LENGTH: If I wear a longer jean jacket then this one, I look stocky which is NOT a good thing. The length of your jacket can make it or break it. If you are Curvy, buy one below your widest point. Straight (like me), buy one at the length of your smallest point (for me it’s my natural waist). Broad Shoulder, find a length that draws your eye to your waist rather than your shoulders providing you with a very slimming silhouette.
