I feel so fortunate to have a job that allows me to work remotely. On a whim, GG and I decided to accompany Jonathan on a business trip to San Diego. I’m not going to lie…I’m really looking forward to the 80 degree weather! We will only be there for three nights and four days, but it’s the perfect excuse to coordinate four fabulous ensembles. Today we feature what I refer to as my “fiesta outfit.” To me, it screams San Diego! You can bet your bottom dollar I’ll rock this little number over a margarita or two.
Is embroidery cool? The answer is YES and it’s popping up across the fashion space in various forms. From jeans, jackets, tops, to accessories, you name it – there is an embroidered version for sale. I am a little late to the trend, as embroidered jeans bring me back to my childhood years, but better late than never! So, here is my attempt to teach you how to wear embroidery without looking like a five year old!
To begin, pair your embroidered piece with mature counter garments. For example, when styling overalls, stay away from sneakers. Instead, dress your playsuit with a lace top and strappy sandals. Smething you would never find a toddler wearing! In today’s look, I dress an embroidery embellished skirt with a flirty off the shoulder top. The sophisticated top balances out the playful lower half. Finally, never forget to accessorize your look. Jewelry, makeup, and shoes have the ability to transform an outfit from cute to sexy. For example, I lathered on a steamy red lip and a pair of tassel earrings. Now do you see why I call this my fiesta outfit?!
