It’s Sunday—just a half day of work. It’s a treat to have a morning that’s paced a little slower. I have an extra cup of coffee and get ready for work in daylight for a change. It’s nice.
Don’t want to overthink it. I know, you know. Black skinny pants ( I have several pairs, as they are my uniform in the colder months), tall black boots, long sleeved white blouse under a black cashmere Vince pocket tunic with elbow length sleeves. Shorter sleeves like this are a little tricky for me–I don’t like elbow length sleeves on me. I fooled around with this sweater for a while, and finally came up with this solution. It works.
The long sleeved white shirt with the white collar seem to pull the look together. They’re making a lot of sweaters with this shorter sleeve—it’s not 3/4 length, it ends above the elbow. Not really flattering, it just looks unfinished. Try this yourself. It would also work with a dress.
I add long pearls , two strands work nicely. They don’t have to match and they don’t have to be real, in fact, fake ones are great! I like to add a large pin, too…one that sparkles! It looks a little like Chanel to have a pin and multiple necklaces. It’s just a little touch that changes an outfit from plain and safe to something a step above, a bit more brave and confident. Besides that, I know we all love sparkles…so why wait for a special occasion to wear them? Live it up—let ’em see you shine!
We decided to extend our sale through Monday, so pop in if you have the day off!
