Weekly Whistle: Plaid + Owls

IMG_8133

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

It’s Wednesday, and y’all know what that means–time for the VIP’s outfit of the week! Whoo hoo!

For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I styled my favorite Cynthia Rowley sweater with a green, curvy skirt, and a b/w plaid blazer to create a professional yet fun ensemble that is perfect for a relaxed lunch meeting. I love the play on patterns, textures, and trends! Plus…It’s kind of fun to wear  plaid + owls *wink*

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog! 

Oh, Wednesdays are so great–I honestly love sharing the outfit of the week with y’all! So–let’s get to it *wink*

What I love about this week’s ensemble: 

1. It’s super comfy with several layers–layering is a huge key to surviving the hot-cold-hot-cold weather this time of year.

2. The mix of patterns and textures adds a lot of pizzazz to what could have easily been a boring outfit. 

3. Cynthia Rowley’s fox tank always leaves me playing air guitar to Jimi Hendrix’s Foxy Lady *wink*

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

It’s finally Thursday, which means I finally get to share this week’s three-ways-to-wear styling challenge! Whoo hoo!

I am a huge fan of light pink and pleated apparel, so when I spotted this skirt at Forever 21…it was love at first sight!

Well, off the top of my head, I was able to create six different looks! Ah! How fabulous?! And for this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday, I am going to show y’all three of those–y’all will have to come back next Thursday to see the final three *wink*

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Tonight on the blog, I would like to reveal the last outfit of the 3 Ways to Wear: Cynthia Rowley Owl Sweater.  Outfit #3 is also this week’s Weekly Whistle! Yay!

To change up Outfit #2, I traded the patterned cords for a vintage skirt, tossed off the yellow scarf, and hopped into a pair of darling socks and Cynthia Rowley sneakers. Tah dah! A totally hipster look that is perfect for chilling at the coffee house or shopping at the mall with the besties!
