The Rodeo Boutique showcase continues (click here to get the 411), but this time I’m having fun in matching separates…maybe a little too much fun! While driving around the LSU lakes, in search of a shooting location, we came across a vintage Chevrolet truck. It was our lucky day because the owner of the truck happened to be outside and got a kick out of us wanting to use it as a prop. In fact, he was suggesting some of my poses! “Southern hospitality” truly exists and this is a funny example of it.
You already know I am a huge fan of two-piece sets because they take the thinking out of getting dressed. This tomato red pair, by findersKEEPERS, is simply chic. The fitted crop top features a wrap front detail and exposed back zipper, making it a great standalone piece also. Picture this stunner with white high-waisted flare leg jeans. I stuck to basics this time around and styled it with matching trouser shorts. The front pleated design and exposed zipper add just enough oomph to an otherwise basic bottom.
Accessorizing with a solid ensemble is like the start of a new painting – the options are endless. Here is how you can transform a sophisticated look into an eclectic one. Begin with a funky pair of shoes. I chose gladiators because you can never go wrong with a black wedge. Now when it comes to jewelry, always remember, the funkier the chunkier. Knee-high lace-up sandals and dainty jewels do not go together – save the pearls for when you wear your pumps. The Vanessa Mooney necklace and cuff were the right mod additions, and the pop of turquoise was an added bonus. Red and turquoise will forever remain one of my favorite color combos.
