Back once again with another style Sunday post! This week I am featuring a simple outfit I wore to a birthday brunch for a dear lady. She was celebrating her 90th birthday!!
I wanted to keep my outfit simple. My go to for simplicity is to wear black. Simple, clean lines, basic pieces. Today, I wanted to incorporate a splash of colour. Here where I live, its supposed to be Spring, but… its freezing cold… and gray… and depressing! ( lol) So, what better way to brighten up your mood than to incorporate colour into your outfit!
For as long as I can remember, I have been opposed to the colour pink in all shades and capacities. But, I found a few pink lipsticks that I really love and that has opened up my eyes to wearing ( I shudder) the colour pink . I had purchased a hot fuchsia pink skirt. I will share with you how I styled it today and how I styled on a previous occasion.
I believe I purchased this skirt at a store called Sirens quite some time ago. I do remember that it was only $9.99! ( That’s why I was willing to purchase something pink.. it was cheap) I found something super similar on Amazon for about the same price ( approx $13.99) click the link here!
I paired it with a simple black peplum short sleeved top. Honestly, I don’t remember where I got this top from. But it is such a versatile top. I can dress it up or down and it can tie any outfit together. I found a similar one on the Amazon website for $12.99 ( click link)
I added my trusty faux leather jacket from Zara. I do believe you can still purchase this on the Zara website. I paid $39.90 for it but it actually retails for $49.90.
Lastly, I added a pair of faux leather stiletto heeled shoes. I purchased these shoes from Sirens years ago for $29.50. I found a similar pair on the Charlotte Russe website for only $21. 49!( click here)
The only jewelry I added was a pair of large gold hoops. I believe I got them at Old Navy. They were about $4.00!
Total Outfit Price:
Black Peplum Top: $12.99
Faux Leather Jacket: $ 39.90
Faux Leather Stiletto Pumps: $29.50
= $96.38 !
I had mentioned earlier that I had styled this skirt in another way. I will insert a picture here:
I paired the skirt this time with some good old fashioned leopard printed pieces. I purchased this leopard top from my favorite store Forever 21. The heels are also from Forever 21. They were on sale buy one get one half off. So I also purchased a pair for my little sister ( a black pair). They were on sale for $15.00 so I got the additional pair for $7.50! Quite the steal! I love this look even more than the one I wore today. I really like pairing a solid colour with a print. Something about that style combination appeals to me!
That’s it for today! Which outfit did you like better? Let me know! See you next week!
