Wednesday Want: Leopard Print Tie-waist Skirt

Wednesday Want--Leopard Tie Knot Skirt

As mentioned in my previous post, there are so many things I’m loving at J Crew right now. Not only do the majority of these pieces work for my petite yet curvy body, but they’re also versatile. What a win win!

I love how J Crew paired their tie waist skirt with a khaki shirt and pink coat, giving it a safari inspired vibe that’s also quite feminine. Personally, I’d tone down the print of the skirt by pairing it with a chambray button down and some black booties.

However, you can honestly put just about any colored top with this skirt as leopard print is basically a neutral in its own right.

How to Wear It Now and Later: J Crew Ruffle-Sleeve Top

 

Wear now and later--Sept 2016

I am loving so many pieces by J Crew right now, but this ruffle sleeve top definitely tops them all (pun intended). It is a top that can easily be paired with a jean, skirt, or nice pant and also is a great transition piece.

For warmer weather (like what we currently still have), I love it with a white jean, cute heel, and dainty shoulder bag. When the weather starts to cool down a bit, it can easily be tucked into a corduroy skirt and paired with a fun animal print mini saddle bag and ankle booties. Also, if you are someone whose body temperature is cooler than average you can easily throw on a pair of cute fleece lined tights with the second look to stay warm.

Hope y’all enjoy this new series!

Back Just in Time (..for the New Year)

Well, it definitely has been awhile since I last blogged! I honestly am so glad for the break that I decided to take from Short Sweet and Lovely. However, I really did not think it would last for as long as it did. I’m happy to say that I will be able to blog more during the Winter and it definitely will provide me the “happy space” it originally was meant to be, which during the Winter Term in Oregon is a blessing.

Also, as it being the beginning(ish) of the New Year so with that I must share some of my new favorite things!!
