Weekly Round Up: All The Prints

It has been interesting seeing all my outfits together in one place. I had never done that previously.  I never plan what I am going to wear, hence “Styled By the Spirit.” I usually just go with what I feel. I wish I was better about planning my outfits for the week, but it just doesn’t happen. I am very active in the style challenges on Instagram so sometimes I have an idea of a color or print or item of clothing that I will build the outfit around. Other times, I just go with something and usually end up hitting a few challenges without even trying. Ha!

Now let’s get into it. Based on the sweaters everyday, you can tell that Winter returned. It got back down into the 30’s and I was not happy, but at least it gave me one more chance to wear my cute coats (not pictured). But it looks like sweaters and prints were the theme for this week.

Black, White, and Pink. Even though I am an avid lover of color, this combo is my all time favorite. A classic black and white look with a pop of pink is everything. Add stripes to the mix and you get perfection.

Sweater: Old Navy (option)| Skirt: Old Navy (exact) | Shoes: BCBGeneration (exact, similar) | Necklace: Lia Sophia (similar) | Bracelets: Boho Betty (exact)

Spring Plaid and Pearls. I love pairing pearls with a plaid button down. It completes the look. And these pink snake print pumps are my all time favorite pumps. They’re really old and unfortunately I couldn’t find anything even remotely similar. 🙁

Sweater: Rue 21 (similar) | Shirt: J. Crew (option) | Pants: The Limited (option) | Shoes: Nine West | Necklace: Express (similar) | Watch: JORD (exact)

Houndstooth Island Paradise. This pretty aqua color is one of this year’s fashion colors for Spring. Contrasted it with this coral floral necklace.

Sweater: Merona (option, option)| Pants: The Limited (option) | Shoes: Rampage | Necklace: J. Crew (exact)

Coral and Green for Casual Friday. I love these colors together. And it’s obvious that I can’t go a week without leopard.

Sweater: Old Navy  (option, option)| Jeans: Old Navy (exact) | Shoes: Nine West (exact, exact, option)| Bracelets: Boho Betty (exact) | Monogram Necklace: Frou Frou & Frill (exact) | Tassel Necklace: Macy’s (option, option)

Hope you enjoyed this week’s round up! BTW, either my camera is awesome or it’s junk because if my sweaters looked even remotely close to this raggedy, they would be in the trash.

Have a fabulous weekend, yall!

3 Ways to Style a Camel Blazer

Blazers are a great way to spice up your existing looks with little effort. Transform your outfit into a more professional, layered, or jazzy look quickly and easily. My camel blazer is the one that I wear the most for all of the above. So if you’re in the market for a new blazer, consider getting a camel-colored one. Most people go for black as the staple because it will always give you that classic polished look. I have three black blazers but I don’t wear those nearly as much as I wear the camel one. I wear it at least once a week, sometimes more. Black is boring. Camel is the new black and I will share with you three easy ways that you can style a camel blazer.

The first one is a professional look. This is good for when you don’t want to wear a full business suit, but you want to look professional. I wore this for a client meeting. Nice pixie pants with a layered floral peplum tank and short-sleeved ruffled blouse was the perfect setup for a camel blazer. Throw it on with some neutral-colored pumps and you’re good to go!

This next look is for a casual look at the office when you want to wear jeans but you still want to look semi-professional. Add a camel blazer to a simple black and white striped tee with dark jeans and leopard pumps to achieve this look. For an extra level of cuteness, add a scarf. I would typically go for a pop of color here, but decided to go for a more polished, classic look instead.

This final look is much more casual. This is perfect for after work events or for casual weekend events. This is my favorite look because it is more of a go-to when I don’t want to put a lot of effort into finding something to wear. A white tee with jeans, pumps, and a statement necklace is always a winner in my book. Adding a camel blazer to it is icing on the cake.

And I’ll throw in this bonus look just because I ran across it before publishing this post. Lol!

How to Transition into Fall: Layers

With it being cool in the mornings and warming up quite nicely during the day (not to mention the icebox of an office I work in), dressing in layers is a must. I like that I can accomplish this by taking pieces from my Summer wardrobe and transitioning them into Fall.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember this outfit from the Summer. I fell in love with this adorable peplum tank top from Express, which is obviously sold out now but I have linked a couple of options from Poshmark. (If you’re lucky, they will be your size). I added a cute ruffled shirt underneath to make it office-appropriate and paired it with sandals and a pearl and gold necklace.

Peplum Tank Top: Express (Option 1, Option 2)

 

To transition this outfit into cooler days, I added this camel blazer from Forever 21, which I cannot find online, but I have linked another very cute option. I substituted the tan sandals for these blush pumps that I am obsessed with from Calvin Klein.
