Two of my awesome friends, Melanie of Bag And A Beret, and Suzanne of Suzanne Carillo Style, both of whom I’ve shopped with, have been urging me to try new and unexpected fashion. To step outside my style box. About 80% of what I wear falls into: jeans, graphic tees, full skirts, loose dresses, and comfy shoes. The comfortable shoes are not open for discussion.
With my style muses in mind, I recently bought a few new-to-me kind of pieces that I’ll show you later. One of them is a structural cropped jumpsuit with a super-deep back, kind of like this:
The awesome women of Visible Monday also show how to step outside the box, in our weekly linkup. They may be dressing in their own signature style, but it’s all new to me, and inspires me to color outside the lines. Among them:
Pao of Project Minima creates nearly all her own clothing, as is true with this two-piece challis outfit. She combines and alters sewing patterns to make a look that’s authentic for her. Style tip: (even if you don’t sew) why not try a two-piece flowy outfit for an evening out?
Joi of In My Joi combines a striped and ruffled one-shoulder blouse from her closet with a ruffle-front poplin skirt. Ruffles with ruffles, I love it. And hello, fab sunglasses. Style tip: mix ruffles with ruffles, stripes with stripes and take a style chance.
Practicing what she preaches, that same Suzanne models a piece from her vintage shop, a 70’s caftan with the most captivating design: horses on the move. Perfect with leopard heels and an ivory pendant. Style tip: Try a pattern you’ve never worn (or maybe even seen) before.
Reminder: Visible Monday starts Sunday around 5PM. You are invited to share your favorite outfit, accessory, hairstyle or lipstick of the week – anything that made you feel Visible. Be there for the best blogger party and the finest style on the webz!
