Create28 / Outerwear

Outerwear, for so many of us, it's a necessary part of the winter season!  So why not have fun with it?!  At this very time last year, I talked about ways to to jazz-up your favorite coat with different cold-weather accessories.  Since I'm all about the remixing lately and it's still winter here in Michigan (although you would hardly know it with the warm temperatures this week), I'm featuring a new way to style the same coat! This time around, I went for a monochromatic look using a marled ... Continue Reading...

Create28 / Printed Pants

printed pants & blazer

Hey, friends! What’s your input on printed pants and/or printed bottoms? Do you own any? Are they a fave or not? I have a few printed bottoms and most of them are skirts. My printed pants all revolve around some print that has black. I own a black and white gingham print and a black and white herringbone print. But then I found these on super clearance just as The Limited was closing. I did like them before the clearance sale when I saw them hanging on the rack so I decided to try them on. I ...

Create28 / Remixing a Sweater + Link-Up

red sweater

This little reddish menswear sweater is super versatile and brings great color in grey/black/neutral wardrobe. I think it’s a little “lucky” for me because I wore it to the interview for the job that now have! I also wore that pencil skirt that I featured yesterday. I guess I was trying to be a little professional powerhouse without over-doing it. Yes, I confess that I am a cardigan fanatic. Most of my sweaters are cardis. I wear cardis almost every day in the fall/winter season. It’s ... Continue Reading...

Create28 / The Pencil Skirt

The pencil skirt. Can I be honest? I don’t love them. It’s true. I am the true lover of the A-line or the soft flirty skirt. Maybe its just this pencil skirt because it seems a little high-waisted to me. Or maybe because I feel exposed in pencil skirts is why I don't love them. Whatever the reason is, I really struggle to wear them. Don’t get me wrong, I have them in my closet and love how look but that is mostly on others. But I continue to try to wear this black pencil skirt. Since black ... Continue Reading...

Create28 / Stripes

Do you want to know something fun about blogging friends?  Sometimes they understand your style even better than you do!  Take this shirt, for example.  Carrie picked it out for me!  She totally nailed it by choosing a pretty peplum in my favorite pattern: stripes! Speaking of stripes, I was reorganizing a portion of my closet the other day and wound-up with a stack of at least seven different striped shirts.  I may have a problem but I'll never admit it!  I love stripes too much! Are ... Continue Reading...

Create28 / Vests

We are over half through Create28 and I am just super excited about the prompts that I’ve had and will be featuring. The reason behind that statement stems from the realization that I continue to determine what pieces I gravitate toward, what gives me confidence, makes me feel put together and polished + what I truly love and don’t in my wardrobe. Another thing that has helped in this area is creating a Wardrobe Inspiration board on Pinterest. This fabulous idea came from Whitney and is ... Continue Reading...
