Everyday Women. Extraordinary Style.

Like many of you, I’m juggling a house, husband, kids, and a full-time job. I’m also struggling with many of the same issues. The biggest…? Finding time to tackle it all, and realizing it’s okay to put your needs first once in a while.

While I look far from perfect most days, I have perfected the art of easy, attainable style for busy, everyday women. It comes down to having the right pieces in your wardrobe and knowing how they work best on your body.

It is my mission to not only remind you that it is okay to take time for you, but also to help you achieve amazing style that is simple, affordable, and works for your size, shape and lifestyle.

Everyday women can have extraordinary style!

How To Wear a Sweater With A Dress

SWEATER WEATHER

This is the season of the KNITS. On the fall fashion 2014 runways, we saw knits from head-to-toe: chunky knit sweaters, even knit pants!

There is nothing ‘new’ about sweaters per se, but what I’m seeing that IS new, fresh and different… How you wear your sweaters.

You can wear them with skirts and dresses, as well as trousers and jeans!

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Buy one that is chunky and cable knit. The one I’m wearing isn’t cable knit, exactly, but I love the chevron pattern! An ivory or gray cable knit is going to give you more versatility.  You can choose an over-sized, cocoon-like option or go a bit more streamlined and find one that’s not so bulky.

How To Wear A Full, Midi Skirt

First let’s talk about what a midi skirt is…It’s a skirt that falls below your knee and above your ankle. Preferably, just a couple of inches below your knee (most flattering length). I think the taller you are, the easier it is going to be for you to pull this off. If you are petite like me, heels are a MUST.

PAIRED WITH: Okay, so to exaggerate the high waist of the this skirt, I paired it with a crop top. The key to wearing a crop top is showing just a sliver of skin between the bottom of your rib cage and above your belly button…the sweet spot! High-waisted pants or skirts are also a must.

ALTERNATIVES:  A fitted black/navy/white T-shirt, blouse, knit, turtleneck, etc, would also work very well if you do NOT want to try a cropped top.

COLOR: I chose black with this skirt, because I really wanted the skirt to be the focal point. Keeping everything else pretty neutral allows the skirt to shine.

ACCESSORIES: I thought about layered pearls, but opted for gold layering necklaces to modernize this already retro look.

SHOES: I finished off the look with some of my favorite ankle strap sandals that are only $43!! Again, adds a modern touch. You can also try pointed-toe, ankle boots, or pumps.

BTW, yes, the skirt is navy, not black, but there is NO reason why you can’t wear black and blue together!

As always, thank you for your support! And thank you for ordering through my sponsored links.
