I thought I’d do something a little different this week… I’m a big believer in having classic pieces that can be worn a bunch of different ways in my closet. I do a lot of mixing and matching and typically rely on accessories versus the actual pieces of clothing to make a statement. It’s amazing what just a different shoe can do for an outfit. I have tried to explain that to my husband a million times, but he still doesn’t understand why I need multiple pairs of black shoes. Sigh…
I styled the same shirt and pants that I wore in Monday’s post in a more casual way. Gone are the heels and chunky gold necklace. I added retro kicks, a sparkly necklace (that you can’t see) and layered a casual sweatshirt over top. Voila! Different. (PS – Please never say or write “walaah”. It makes me really stabby.) I wore this out running errands on Saturday and I received the best compliment from this sweet, sweet gay boy (which is much better than a straight one, because straight ones know nothing about style and/or fashion). He said “I really like your look you’ve got going on, it’s preppy but chic.” Day made. Done.
