Nov. 8: Styling My Pink Linen Blazer

Hello again, this week I’m continuing with the theme of styling finds from this past summer. As you can tell by the title, I’ll be styling my pink linen blazer today. My post on it can be found here.

My first styling is paired with a basic white v-neck shirt, a black faux leather skirt, and my gray converse. Overall a more casual ensemble, the light texture of the linen and the heavy texture of the fake leather create an eye-catching contrast. The shirt and shoes let that texture contrast be the center of this outfit.

For the second look I paired my blazer with a green sundress. I added a black belt which would cinch the waist for some more shape. The breezy feel matches the casual vibe of the black high top sneakers. You could also choose a pair of wedge sandals for a slightly dressier, yet still laid-back feel. I could see this outfit accessorized with a chunky statement necklace or some layered dainty necklaces and a watch.

My last look is a more covered – and therefore more fitting for a cooler climate this time of year. A floral blouse adds to the volume of the relaxed-fit blazer. The silhouette is balanced out by tight fitting gray jeans. This leads to my neutral faux-suede booties. If it’s a little chilly outside, simply slap on your favorite jacket and you are good to go!

Announcement: my posts the next few weeks will become shorter in terms of content (as you may have noticed). Finals are just around the corner for me, so if a disappear for one or two posts – never fear! I’m merely immersed in my schoolwork. Finals end in the middle of December, so I will be back to posting regularly then if I slip over the next few weeks!

Nov. 1: Styling a Funky Printed Tee

Did I almost completely forget to write a post today? Yes. Blame law school, and here I am.

Moving onto the outfits! Graphic tees are easily one of the most effortless ways to express your personality in an outfit. However, patterned tees are a bolder way to do the same. I was so pumped to find a tee printed with PUFFINS. Today I’ll be using it to show how a bold printed tee works in a variety of outfits.

My first ensemble is one of the more casual options. The red-orange color of the shirt pops against the olive color of the jacket. “Mom” jeans and chunkier sneakers add to the casual feel. I also love how the white shoe picks up on the white in the tee!

My second outfit feeds (again) on my inspiration of the tee and heeled bootie pairing. The mom jeans also add to the “dressy and casual” contrast. A loose neutral cardigan lets the bold color of the tee shine and still remain cozy!

Third, another casual outfit. This time we’re mixing our denims. Black jeans and a lighter patterned denim jacket add even more casual dimension to the puffin shirt. I decided to add darker gray converse to keep the casual feel and not contrast too much from the black jeans. That way, the contrast of the shirt next to the pants remains the focus of the outfit.

Last, but certainly not least, is a paring with a blazer! The black blazer is not too abrasive against the orange toned shirt, in my opinion, because it plays off of the black within the pattern. The blazer also has scrunched sleeved to add a more casual feel. The gray chino pant plays a similar role as the blazer, showing that the outfit was created around the playful statement shirt. Lastly, white (albeit dirty) converse round out the outfit and remains cohesive with the shirt’s color palette.

Thanks for stopping by! I loved getting back into styling outfits – even if I’m not modelling them. This definitely saves me some major time, so I’m able to still post and do all of my homework!

I can’t wait to see you next week! In the meantime, as always, stay happy and healthy!
