Hi friends! Welcome back! As you can see, I'm back with another Pinterest recreation. I know I did two of these last month, but my plan is to only do them once a month going forward so it doesn't get overwhelming. So far, this one is my favorite so prepare for me to ramble because I've come to realize I tend to do that whenever I love my outfit.
When you really think of the contents of the outfit, it's really pretty basic. All this look really consists of is a bodysuit, jeans, & a blazer. The trick to transforming a bland outfit into one that turns heads is one word: accessorize. Start with your basic, staple pieces like I did here. I rarely wear heeled pumps because I find them uncomfortable and difficult to walk in, but sometimes you have to sacrifice comfort to get the look you're going for. I'm sure you ladies know what I mean. When you're working with oversized pieces, it's important to have balance otherwise you run the risk of looking like you're drowning in your clothes, especially when you are petite, like I am. The thinness and tall height of these heels creates the illusion of longer legs which balances out the top-heaviness of the super oversized blazer as well as the baggier fit of the jeans. Then, I added my favorite belt to cinch in my waist. Now, all that's left are the final finishing touches. For me, it's always a purse (I went with a small one for this look to, again, off-set the oversized-ness of the blazer), sunglasses, and some jewelry. I can't stress enough how much a little jewelry can transform a look. Statement earrings, a standout necklace (or layered necklaces), rings, etc. Have fun with it, mix gold and silver, just do whatever makes you feel good. I went minimal with my jewelry because I wanted the blazer to do the talking.
Hopefully this was helpful for you guys. If you're like me and trying your best to shop less and work with the hundreds of items that are already in your closet, this formula is definitely the way to go. Everything I have on here was bought at least a year ago (most of them more) and it felt like I was wearing a brand new outfit. You'd be surprised how many different looks you can create from pieces you already own. All details (or similar) are listed below. Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.
