09 Jan Turning Heads Linkup Chicos Leopard Wrap and Red Velvet Booties
Happy Tuesday friends!
It is finally getting a bit warmer here in NC. with balmy temperatures in the 50s! I am basically a cold weather “wimp’, even though I grew up in Pittsburgh. I also used to teach “LifeSports” at a private school here, and just dreaded the winter, as the school didn’t have a gym… the outdoors were the gym, and I would dread having to teach flag football to 40 kids in the cold. If you are starting to get in that “Spring frame of mind” check out yesterday’s post, as I styled a tunic/lace dress from Joseph Ribkoff. Today, howecer, I am bundled up with my Chicos finge leopard wrap, a surprise gift they sent to me before Christmas.
I love wearing neutrals from time to time, even though color is my favorite to style, a neutral look can be very chic and stylish as well. Leopard is on trend, but so very timeless! Chicos sent me this weighty fringed wrap and a gold bag initialed with a “J”, very thoughtful! I am using it for a makeup bag. This ruana is thick and warm, and the fringe gives it extra style.
For this layered look, I paired my camel sweater with soft black jeans from Fabrizio Gianni. I have been looking forward to wearing my red velvet Zara booties, that were a steal before Christmas. I paid $30! The pop of red is the bit of color that is always fun to add to your neutral look. I typically love to add color to a neutral look through accessories, shoes or bags.
The “piece de la resistance” is my new Brahmin bag I purchased using $$ I received at Christmas. You know when you look at a bag, and then you keep going back to look at it? I have a few Brahmin bags and I love their texture and design. The vintage ladylike shape and front buckle really appealed to me. I love the color and have wanted a rich brown bag in addition to my Louis Vuitton. It is medium sized and has a thick strap to alternate carrying. I am liking medium-small bags these days, as with big bags i can never find anything!
The sun is hitting these booties, they are a red velvet.
How do you enjoy wearing neutrals? Tell me about it in the comments, I love to hear from you!
