Snapshots: dressing room outfits // Style Me Wednesday

link-up, outfits comment

Front tie sweater | colorblock fit and flare dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Grey tie hem sweater

Colorblock dress – Neiman Marcus (old) (similar)

Loving this sweater for the fall! It comes in 3 colors and is under $50 right now!

Striped tie front sleeveless top | mint green pants  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Bow neck tie sleeveless top

Mint green ankle pants

Loving the light color of these pants and contrasted with bold stripes of the top. Change the look of the outfit by tying the shirt front into a bow or have it hang down as is.

Blazer | striped t-shirt dress | loafer slides  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Cutaway navy blazer – Veronica Beard {budget friendly}

Striped dress

Mule slides

I’ve been looking for a striped shirt dress and this one fits the criteria and budget (under $15!)

Striped wrap dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Dual striped wrap dress

The contrast of the different stripe sizes makes this dress unique. To make the dress more work-friendly, I’d probably add a snap button or layer a lace camisole underneath (or this bra that wouldn’t add more layers), or a bandeau bra.

Floral dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Floral fit & flare dress

Florals get me every time, and this one did just that. The soft wisps and brush stroke pattern won me over.

Pink striped top | nautical shorts |  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Pink striped flutter sleeve top – Banana Republic (similar)

Nautical-inspired navy shorts

Tory Burch ballet flats

Nautical shorts for the win! I happened to be wearing a pink top while trying these shorts and I love the color combination. For a more preppy look, pair with a white button down shirt.

Green utility jacket | white eyelet peplum | cork ballet flats  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Green field / utility jacket

White eyelet peplum – GAP (similar)

Black jeans {budget friendly}

Cork bow-tie ballet flats – Kate Spade {budget friendly}

This field jacket came home with me. Things that won me over: popped collar, drawstring waist, and lots of pockets!

Flamingo sweatshirt | white shorts | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Flamingo sweatshirt {super soft!}

White shorts

This sweatshirt is sooooo soft and I can’t believe it’s only $15!

White tie front blouse | striped skirts | scallop ballet  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Waist tie front button down {budget friendly}

Striped sweater skirt {on clearance here; budget friendly}

Scallop ballet flats {budget friendly}

I can definitely appreciate a tie-front top to accentuate the waist. This top would be very versatile to pair with just about anything – a skirt, pants, jeans!

Style: pajama-inspired day wear

style trend comment

Pajama inspired daytime look | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

The slogan “I woke up like this” is literally taking sleepwear into daytime wear. The latest fashion trend is styling your pajamas for a comfy day time look. Granted this look wouldn’t be appropriate in a conservative office, it would be great to try out in a creative workplace. If you’re not quite sure of the head-to-toe silky pajama look, try starting with this gingham top and pair it with a pair of jeans or a skirt. This pink vest with the bold piping could segue you into adopting the trend. A little more adventurous? This belted kimono could replace your usual coat or these piped pants could take the place of your usual jeans. Or, try this dark floral print dress with the contrast piping paired with a belt to give it a daytime look. Then, when you get home, you could lose the belt and through on your comfy slippers and be ready for a nice relaxing evening. Would love to hear your take on the pajama trend!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Navy pajama kimono blazer with piping

Navy lily print midi dress with piping

Pink longline pajama blazer with contrast piping

Blue gingham piped pajama shirt

Black cropped pajama pant with contrast piping

Style: fall florals

style trend comment

Style: fall florals | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

As we go into the cooler weather, the tendency is to gravitate towards darker colors and hues and put florals away until the spring. This season, designers are embracing both by featuring a lot of fall florals – think dark colors against colorful prints. I’m loving this compromise and it’ll be the perfect piece to brighten you up when the rain and cold weather are here.


SHOP THE LOOK:

1. Floral off-the-shoulder dress

2. Dark floral dress

3. Floral swing dress

4. Floral off-the-shoulder top

5. Floral bomber blazer

6. Floral peplum sweater

7. Dark floral swing top
