Since the weather is finally warm and summer-like enough, I chose this Stella McCartney denim mini skirt to style for my weekend going out look. I love the mid blue wash of the skirt and love how it paired with this cropped sea foam green sweatshirt from Acne.
Because the rest of the look is fairly casual, I wanted to add some fun touches with accessories. I chose these Jimmy Choo metallic Mary Janes because I love the style, especially paired with the mini, which has a 60s style vibe. Next, I chose this fringe bucket bag from Stella McCartney because I love the darker blue paired with the green and wash of the skirt. Lastly, I finished the look with a bit of shine with this disc choker necklace from Miss Selfridge.
For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to style an outfit that I have been wanting to wear myself for a while, but it’s not currently warm enough for it here in the UK. I went for more of a beach appropriate outfit here, but one that’s stylish and chic at the same time, using the J Brand Gracie Denim Shorts as a base for the whole ensemble.
To dress the shorts up, I recommend either a nice bikini top or a little tank top, then layer this Lost Ink Sleeveless Jacket over the top as a cover up, but also as a piece that just adds style. To give some height to your legs, I went with the pretty Chloe Espadrille Wedges and tied on a Brown Belt to blend in with the brown tones of the shoes. Now for the accessories, I chose this Style & Go To The Beach Tote as it’s perfect for the occasion, a cute Floppy Sun Hat, some Linda Farrow Aviators and a Sydney Evan Gold Ring to finish it all off with. I would definitely wear something like this. Would you?
For this weeks look, I wanted to go for a slightly boho vibe with the J Brand 835 Mid Rise Capri in Exposure. They are still one of my favorite jeans that J Brand has ever created, well a great style that anyone has done to be honest. They have slight edge, yet have a versatility that can allow you to take it to different ends of the spectrum style wise.
I first started with choosing this Burberry Brit top as it has an airy feel to it, which lends well to the boho idea that I was going for. Then to continue that feel, choosing suede shoes was a no brainer and these Gianvito Rossi sandals are the perfect style for a look like this. But I couldn’t keep the look too “free-spirited” and added some edge with this studded Miu Miu belt. Also to add some attitude to the outfit is this Jennifer Meyer necklace. It is demure, yet provocative as it takes away focus due to its minimalism. I find edge in it that works really well with the look.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I decided that for my styling post this month, I would style pairs that have the “Mom’ jean feel. The high rise cut is no longer the unflattering cut that it was in the past and has been reinvented into a fit that suits everyone now. Whether you choose the classic blue or a more updated take with a kick flare or distressed wash, these are jeans that are styled in a way that is beyond mumsy or dated.
