Love At First Print :: floral blazer + all white

Friday, June 12, 2015

What's more eye-catching than a white-hot monochromatic look? Adding a sleek flash of color, a bold look-at-me print, and a dramatic lip stain to effortlessly spice up your summertime vibe, that's what. 
Jazz up your closet basics - think solid v-necks and streamlined pencil skirts - with a pop of pattern play and statement accessories. It's an easy way to refresh your staples and add interest to an otherwise vanilla look. 
This Anthropologie boyfriend blazer is a breath of fresh air. Vivid colors, a silk finish, and a slightly slouchy fit are features that make this blazer unique and stylish. I sized up to get that oversized yet just-right feel. 
Emerald accessories, like these strappy, satin heels, give any look a luxe feel. I paired them with similar colors here but it's fun to let them stand out by combining them with complimentary hues such as blues, greens, and even warm tones.
This Alexis Bittar necklace takes statement making to the next level with glass stones and crystal. The green tone compliments the green hues in my outfit in an offbeat way.  
When placed against a white background, this blazer becomes the ultimate statement piece. Powerful accessories like this are the chicest way to liven up your summer wardrobe. 
My gray pearls are a staple for me. I gravitate towards them on a weekly basis.

Before making the big move to The Big Apple, my dad and I banked some photo shoots back at home in Illinois. These pictures were actually taken in our front yard! 

My New York update is that I am currently working at Ann Taylor in Manhattan until I find a job more aligned with my career path - something in the journalism industry (preferably fashion). New York is HOT right now but I'm loving it nonetheless. Hey, it's better than freezing cold! My first New York winter, now that will be something to experience.

  27. This look is amazing! I've always wanted to try an all-white ensemble but it just seems to boring, and this is a great idea. I love the pattern too - it's very unique and versatile. You look gorgeous, especially with that lip stain, and I love the way you write - I can scroll through your posts for hours on end!

  32. This is such a great look! I love how you took a simple outfit base and topped it with a bold color and print. I love wearing v-necks and pencil skirts too, and adding a fun cardigan or kimono is such an easy way to make it more interesting. That blazer is amazing!
