It's finally cool enough in North Carolina to whip out the winter wares. This post is one of my first style inspiration/tributes to a fellow blogger. Jennifer Nweji is a fabulous NYC professional by day and blogger my night who has an impeccable eye for colors, patterns, textures, and all this chic. I first came across her on Fashionbombdaily.com and fell in love with her grace the way she slayed in her Stella McCartney dress (last pic).She takes street chic to a whole other level by cleverly mixing affordable and high-end eclectic pieces as well as staples and making fashion masterpieces.Her blog is http://jennesisofchic.blogspot.com/ and her IG is @jennesisofchic, check her out!
Her bold yet classy looks are the inspiration behind today's look. White after Labor Day is seen as taboo, but rule no.1 of fashion is 'there are no rules'. Winter whites can vary from the snowiest of whites, to cream, Mother of Pearl, eggshell and so forth. This work appropriate looks even makes leather appropriate for work. I paired my faux leather off white trousers ($19.99 last year-Zara) with a Express cream cowl neck sweater ($2-thrift).My grey and silver pumps (Zara, $59.99 old) were the perfected muted color pump to compliment my look. To uplift things, I strapped my thin coral belt over my faux fur stole (Forever 21, $17.80) and grabbed my faux croc blue purse (Target, $8...on sale. old); the colors really popped against my winter white ensemble. My earrings are from Shein.com ($6) and I saw some similar on Jennifer and had to have some. They really pull a look together! My husband who is my photographer also designs jewelry. I added his Jasper gemstone beaded bracelet ($30- with U.S. shipping included) .Check out his page Jewelry Designs by Tim Ellis https://www.facebook.com/Jewelry-Designs-by-Tim-Ellis-1452005351766925/?fref=ts .I kept makeup fairly light and put on my Wet and Wild 'Purty Persimmon' lippy $2 .Don't sleep on the Wet and Wild ladies, they have great shades that look good on all skin tones, and if you don't like it you only lost a couple bucks.I really appreciate all the likes and looks and compliments! It means so much! You guys really keep me going, and I hope was able to inspire!
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
