This week, let’s look at re-purposing some of your favorite pieces. Who says your best summer pieces can’t be worn year round?
Here’s a few fave looks from this week:
This skirt pictured above is so beautiful. It’s light, airy, and feminine; it has these gorgeous openings in the front and back that flow so marvelously as you walk. A tank top with this skirt is perfection. To make this function in a work environment, you really need a cover-up of some sort. For some time I had been pairing it with a sweater; it does not look great. It detracts from the skirt and the overall look can get a bit frumpy. I was determined to find something that worked, because there was no way this skirt was going to be tucked away in the closet.
Enter a great plaid shirt! Tied up in true ’90’s fashion, it complements the skirt while providing a super cute cover-up option with a subtle nod to grunge.
As far as shoes, I used my new boots from last week! They actually work super well with this look.
How about some NY love with this look? J&L New York State Ring!
In keeping with the grunge trend, a black spinel entwined ring would be perfect:
For a softer, feminine look, here’s a classic James & Lily favorite: Catherine Ring!
I wanted to try out this look before it got too chilly. Walking around NYC you’ll see a myriad of amazing looks. On the train every morning, the temptation to take pictures of all this great fashion looms large. But I don’t want to be a creep here. So as the old adage goes, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”.
These shorts are perfect. Seriously. They’re high-waisted which is super flattering and loose at the thigh which is a nice contrast to traditional shorts. And the pattern….oh my. Lovely. They could really be paired with a variety of tops, because they’re the star of the show. I chose a sweater – seasonally appropriate and gave the look a casual feel.
I encourage you to try out shorts and tights! It’s fun and could really go in a variety of different directions. I love the casual and playful look when paired with a sweater. And a sexier top and a change of shoes could transition this combination to an amazing date night look.
In keeping with the bright theme, I love these rings.
