It’s the first outfit post of February 2015 and in true February fashion, the item of repeat is one I fell in love with at first sight.  It’s this Topshop vest and I love it for the clean lines, understated chicness and because it will elevate so many outfits, as I’ll be demonstrating throughout the month.

{ Style Tips }

1. Layer tights under your ripped jeans. It’s cold out in my hood so and a layer of hosiery under the pants keeps the knees covered up from the cool temps.

2. Use a vest to polish the look. I have a feeling I’ll want to repeat this tip next week and the following, but the right vest can really make the outfit. It ‘s the piece that ties the shirt and pants together.

3. Booties go with everything. It’s one item I regularly recommend to clients. Wear with ripped green pants like me, jeans, a dress, skirt, or even athleisurely leggings. They’re far warmer than a pump and super versatile.

4. Layer your dainty jewelry. I visited the Marlyn Schiff showroom last week and left with a few really lovely pieces that you’ll see making some cameos on the blog. The bracelets I’m wearing were styled similarly on the brand’s PR. It was just so cute that I had to copy it. A few dainty pieces of jewelry look so pretty together. I’ll be posting pics from my showroom visit on the blog soon. Stay tuned!
