Happy New Year!! 🙂 Since 2014 was a pretty good year for me, I decided to bring a bit of it into 2015 by remixing an outfit I wore a few months ago to speak at my sister’s women’s event. The event and my outfit were an absolute hit! So I opted to wear the ensemble again today.
For the women’s event, I chose the striped pencil skirt with the tucked-in chambray top to create a sophisticated look with a feminine silhouette. I added the leopard-print belt for a pop of contrast against the perpendicular stripes of the skirt. This was all well and good… for a warm Saturday afternoon. Today ‘s temperatures, however are WAY colder than the summer weather we saw when I originally wore this outfit.
To combat this, I threw on a faux fur vest. The vest was the perfect layering piece to provide the much needed additional warmth. It also took a bit of the professional edge off of the the outfit while adding a hint of luxury. For shoes I chose nude heels to keep things neutral. Gold jewelry finished the look. What faux pieces will you use to remix outfits for the new year?
