Style trend: wool blazers

style trend comment

Wool blazers | find all options at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Blazers are a closet staple and everyone should have one. This time of year, I’m reaching for my wool blazers. They’re perfect for layering and keeping warm but not bulky like a coat. A black blazer and a camel blazer are versatile for all looks but the addition of color or trimmed blazers can help add some interest to one’s look. I’ve picked out some fun blazers I wouldn’t mind having in my closet below!

Tropical vacation getaway

style trend comment

Tropical vacation packing list | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Summer is almost halfway over and I’m longing for a tropical getaway! I would love to lounge around in the sun, sip some lovely drinks, and enjoy the time with an enthralling book! Packing for a getaway is half the fun – how about a pink swimsuit with ruffle detailing (options here) paired with this ombre maxi dress. These basic but highly versatile sandals are the perfect complement to any tropical look. This whimsical hat would be great for getting some shade or letting others know when I’m catching a few zzz’s. And, of course, I’ll need a tote to stash all my stuff in !

Ladies, in case you missed some of the weekend headlines: Amal Alamuddin got married to the one of the world’s most eligible bachelors. En route to their civil ceremony, she was spotted in this custom Stella McCartney cream colored suit. Minimal accessories kept the look very tailored as she donned a J Smith Esquire hat and a Stella McCartney clutch with fine gold hardware.

Inspired by the new Mrs. Clooney? Try pairing this black and cream contrasting blouse with these wide leg trousers. This wide brim hat will keep your hat from blowing in the wind and this envelope clutch will keep all your essentials. Now, is your Mr. Wonderful ready to say I do as well?

The look for less: Victoria Beckham

the look for less comment

Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want… Sorry, that was the 90s calling and it wants one of its songs back. It’s been more than a decade since the rise and popularity of the group The Spice Girls. I’m sure you remember – or have heard of – Victoria Adam (aka Posh Spice). Perhaps, you know her by her married name: Victoria Beckham. Her style has become very refined compared to her girl band days. Even with the simplest of outfits, she makes it stand out with her confidence. Case in point:

I love the light, airy feel of this outfit. Despite it’s simplicity, I think it has a very sophisticated feel. Something about the softness of the silk blouse from Equipment paired with the wide leg trousers from Chloé makes this a very chic outfit. I think this look would work well for a business meeting: consider this similar Milly blouse and these soft blue linen pants from Ralph Lauren. Pair it with a nude heel and some aviator glasses and you’re all set to talk shop. What do you think – would you wear this outfit?

Save or splurge: ankle wrap sandal heels

save or splurge comment

April showers bring May flowers – that’s how the saying goes, right? The floral print trend is definitely in full effect. This is evident with its prominence in everything from blazers to pants to skirts. Some of the floral patterns out there are bolder than others and I’ve found myself challenged with how to best style it without looking like a crazy person. If you’re new to this trend, perhaps you’d like to start with a smaller print and work it into your outfit.

Save or splurge: @givenchy #givenchy vs @stevemadden #stevemadden floral ankle-wrap pump heel | www.shoppingmycloset.com

I think these ankle wrap sandal heels are good solution for that. The print is colorful and girly and has multiple colors so you can match it to other color palettes to style a very vibrant and chic outfit. I’ve found two different styles from Givenchy and Steve Madden that can be mixed and matched with your wardrobe this season.

The classic rose design from Givenchy would work perfectly paired with a little black dress that you could wear to a shower. Consider pulling in the pink rose detailing by pairing the dress with a matching belt. To balance the outfit, I would recommend a neutral accessory palette for the earrings, bracelet, and clutch.

These pretty and bright floral heels from Steve Madden are also another option if you’re not fully committed to the trend and are unsure if it’s for you. This pattern is very feminine, especially with the thin straps and stiletto heel. To play up the girly vibe, I would pair it with this season’s other “it” trend: the midi skirt. This white midi skirt is a great contrast to the vibrant colors of the heel and is complimented by a blush pink top. Again, I kept the earrings and cuff bracelet color-neutral, and offset the entire look with a mint quilted purse that has a gold chain to tie in the two color schemes.
