I know I’ve been missing in action for a few weeks, but… finally I’m back and ready to share some of what I’ve been wearing these past few weeks!
I had a number of events these past few weeks, that required me to get creative with my outfits. But the weather has been so EXTREMELY COLD here where I live that I haven’t had any motivation to wear any colour other than…. Black! If you know me, you should know that that is not the norm for me ! I’m usually all about my vibrant colours! However, I did manage to pull out some nice outfits that I’d like to share with you 🙂
Outfit One: Blue Jeans and Black Cold Shoulder Sweater…
I paired my favourite pair of blue distressed high waisted skinny jeans from the Old Navy Curvy jeans line, with this black cold shoulder sweater that I purchased from H&M. I finished this look off with olive green booties ( not pictured here) also from Old Navy. No jewellery other than my trusty cross and baby ring necklace!
I kept my makeup simple; eyeliner ( Maybelline Unstoppable ) Make-Up Forever Foundation and Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in the colour “Sanctuary”.
Outfit Two: Black Lace and a Fur Vest…
This outfit was something I wore to work on the Friday before March Break! I had to work later than I like (lol) and I had an event to go to right after my shift had ended. I wanted something casual as well as something fashion forward and since it was freezing cold, I found it fitting to pull out my trusty fur vest! I purchased this vest on Ebay so long ago for less than 10 dollars!
I saw this black lace “Brooklyn” top on the Forever 21 website, however when I went to see if they had it at my local store, it was nowhere to be found. I had forgotten about it until recently when I was walking by the same Forever 21 and saw it in the display window. I raced into the store and finally got my hands on one in my size!
I love that this piece is super casual because of the block lettering of the word “Brooklyn” but can still be “dressed up” if need be.
I paired this outfit with shiny tights from Garage clothing and little black booties. To add some colour, I put on a red lip : “Beso” by Stila Cosmetics.
Outfit Three: Black Lace Top and Leather Skirt…
This last outfit is an outfit I wore to my homegirls bridal shower. It was a Coco Chanel theme, so naturally the colour palette was black and white. The bridal party decided on wearing black and pearls so that we would all be uniform. With it being so cold, the outfit I had planned on wearing was not warm enough! So last minute, I ran into H&M and came out with these pieces that I paired together to create my look.
I found this black polyester/ lace top that I fell in love with instantly! I enjoyed the deep v-neck detailing that gave this top just enough Va va voom to spice up the look, while remaining mostly modest 🙂 The A-Line faux leather high waisted skirt was super flattering and very comfortable! I paired them with my Lia Sophia freshwater pearl earring, bracelet and necklace set as well as little black booties purchased from Payless years ago ( I honestly love these shoes. You guys must be sick of them by now! I do have other shoes don’t worry 🙂
I can’t seem to find these pieces online for purchase 😦
So thats all I’ve been wearing these past few weeks!
Its good to be back!! See you next week with anther edition of Style Sunday and remember…
