Hello Ladies,

I decided I would create a look that showed a hard and soft look, just by changing a jacket, as well as you could also change your jewelry to add a scarf or feminine necklace. Here the “hard” part of the look is the chunky silver metal chain, the studs on my bag, and the black leather blazer. The “soft” is the blush paper-mache-like chiffon flowing skirt, sandals and a silky black tiered top.

You want to bring a change of clothes to go from this to an edgier look? Take the top, jacket and necklace and wear a pair of skinny dark jeans with some studded heels.by Christian Louboutin or a less expensive version. You get my idea. 🙂$_12

For a softer look, a soft pastel jacket, with a pearl necklace would do the trick. Have fun experimenting.

My outift: Black top: Nordstrom ( similar), Skirt: ( Spring Ann Taylor 2014), Necklace: White House Black Market ( old, similar), earrings BHWM, Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff, Leather Blazer ( Nordstrom old, similar)lastsig

      Thank Patti!
      I really like those shoes you posted, especially the yellow ones. Got to watch my budget, but I will be due for shoes in a couple months. I loved this skirt and how the material is delicate and feminine.

      Thank you. I bought it at Loft awhile ago, and dress it up as well as down at times, I thought the layers of the top with the chiffon skirt would work well.
      Have a good evening! jess

      Oh Gosh I am sorry. I looked at it too quickly! Yes, the skirt. Me too. I have another idea of where I will take the pic of it next time. I loved the chiffon and flowing nature of it. At Ann Taylor now on sale 🙂
