Go Chic Yourself

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Dressing chic is easy - all it takes is a pair of glamorous heels, a ladylike skirt, and of course a strand (or 10) of pearls. 
This tank and I fell in love at first sight. I visited the beautiful Archer Townsend showroom back in August and when I saw this fabulous top I knew I had to have it. Definitely a must for any fashionista! 
Your grandmother was right, pearls do make all the difference. But adding in some metal chains make these layers modern.  
Black strappy heels - so luxurious in satin 
This skirt is charming and flattering. I love the stylish way it flairs out and the pattern is stunning! Black & white floral is fresh and current. 
I love that these earrings add some major sparkle to any outfit. Sometimes they're just what I need to brighten and glamify my day. 
Keep your arm candy dainty and classy.

[tank: Archer Townsend, skirt: Parabal Gurung for Target, heels: b.p. Nordstrom, necklaces: Ann Taylor and pearls layered, earrings: Kate Spade]

Lately I've been super into pairing traditionally causal pieces with more sophisticated girly ones. I love the juxtaposition and how effortless the whole vibe is. This tank is so versatile and goes perfectly with everything from jeans to skirts, and when it comes to ladylike skirts, this is the mother of them all.

But the most important thing to remember when dressing chicly? Just add pearls!

  23. Haha, the saying on the top is so witty! I like that you paired it together with that beautiful, beautiful skirt! And as I am big sucker for floral print the skirt would be perfect for me! :) The shirt and skirt have a great clash of casual and classy! Such a smart way to style both garments!
