This week, I had the pleasure of “playing” in the colorful closet of one of my favorite local shops, Liv Fashion Boutique! By playing, I really mean trying on various pieces and styling my favorites – there is nothing more fun for a fashion aficionado (thank you, Olivia!). While I would take one of everything from this cute little store, the look I chose to model is one that is easy to replicate, and can take you from the office to the dinner table.
When you come across a flattering patterned top, buy it! It’s easy to get into the habit of stocking up on solids and basics, but those won’t do you any good when you’re in a rush and you find yourself having one of those “I have nothing to wear moments.” When I tried on this multicolored top, I could immediately tell it would pair nicely with virtually any color denim, coated denim, or leather. In the ensemble photographed below, I suited up in some skinny jeans (not just any jeans, but Flying Monkey jeans – my favorite brand), and a black boyfriend blazer. Although you could get away with various shades of denim, I recommend a fitted bottom such as a skinny or straight leg pant when wearing a boxy garment on top. I polished off the look with a glitzy necklace of similar tones, a navy blue fringe purse, and patent leather nude pumps.
For the alternate look below, my goal was to transform the same attire into an edgy ensemble appropriate for a night on the town. If you can avoid “wasting” a second outfit during the same day, do it. Swapping out the denim pants for some vegan leather shorts was an obvious fix – it was all of a sudden sunny and 70 degrees in San Francisco. Next, I switched up my jewels for some black and gold ones straight out of my armoire, replaced the navy purse with a classic Gucci bag, and threw on my blue Ray-Bans.
