This outfit hits my Style Trifecta: it’s simple, comfortable, and polished without looking or feeling fussy.
Black And Camel, With A Side Of Leopard
One of my go-to outfit formulas is a column of color with a longer contrasting top layer. Here, I’ve used a couple of my favorite black knit separates with a collarless sweater-jacket. I really love these jackets! They’re soft but structured, and offered in several colors and up to size 3X. I’m wearing the X-Small.
I still have plenty of black pieces in my wardrobe. And I’m still most “at home” wearing black: it’s easy, it feels chic. But I’ve also learned to break it up with lighter colors (especially near my face).
I’ve had this scarf (similar) for a couple of years. I love the leopard print, and how ties together the black and camel colors.
This bag is now going on 6 years old. It’s one of my favorites, and after giving it a rest for several months I’ve begun using it again. It’s softened up nicely over the years but is still in good shape. I may get spendy with my bags at times, but I do tend to keep and use them for years, which brings down the cost-per-wear. The ring is new, purchased on my recent trip to Paris.
I’ve become a big fan of metallic footwear over the last couple of years. It’s very versatile, and adds a little zing to a simple outfit. These boots are almost sold out in this bronze color, but there’s another metallic (Iron) still available. I give them high marks for comfort.
Don’t forget…I’m giving away one of the February boxes (“La Parisienne”) from My Stylish French Box! If you haven’t yet entered, click below for details and follow instructions in the post to submit your entry.
