Earn your stripes, apart of the #SimplicitySeries2016


This look to me screams new age classic. What do I mean by new age classic? Well, I’m glad you asked. I mean this is a notable classic print (Stripes) mixed with a classic detail piece (pearls) and a new age flare larger than average pearls, mustard bodycon and platform heels.

To be honest I barely made it 20 minutes at work in these heels, they just slowed me down, but you get the idea. Anywho, stripes are a classic print. You can see them anywhere from Zebras to referees. The fun thing about this blazer is the size of the stripes and the fact that they are vertical. This not only makes this blazer simple and classic, it makes it fashion forward.

As for this beautiful single strand pearl necklace I have on…yep they’re faux pearls, they’re chunky, and attached to a gold chain. This my friends takes a simple classic popular detail like the pearl and brings it into the fashion trends of today. We like big things, flashy and unique while still preserving our class (at least if you’re anything like me).

I added a new aged simple body con skirt to make this outfit pop. I love the mustard color because it can cross seasons just enough and I am a huge fan of the length because once again it allows me to preserve my classy while showing just enough curve.

This look was finished by a cream and gold platform heel that really offsets the cream stripes in the Blazer and the soft pearl color in my jewelry.
