White Sweater + Jeans + Blush Accessories
Happy day, reader most dear!
And you are. Dear, that is!
Gratitude, pure and simple. I’m trying to get better at expressing it regularly. Thank you for reading.
Speaking of regularly, I also make a regular (and hopefully not too frequent) habit of reminding you that not only is Closet Play Image your place to visit for Bright Ideas for Your Style and Your Wardrobe, it’s my business. I appreciate your readership; that’s one way you support me!
Sharing the goodness you find here with others is another; thank you for your shares and Pins. I’d love to be your image consultant and stylist, so when you are ready, just let me know! (There are multiple ways to work with me. And no. Image Consultants aren’t just for celebrities.)
Let’s roll into some fun and style…
The first Copycat Style post of a season/capsule is always interesting. Interesting can be good or bad! The good: I am both filled with ideas for the “new” clothes in my closet. The bad: I haven’t hit the bored spot that sets me on the hunt for different ways to style what I have.
I know faded denim, blush and white might not be what most people are thinking for for winter style, but the frosty feel works for me!
If your coloring is warm, swap in an ivory sweater and look for a warmer blush or pale salmon. That combination sounds gorgeous!
This Month’s Inspo…
This month was hard. I started with the middle and last looks but they didn’t have feet… So I had to hunt down some shoe ideas!
What elements bind these looks?
White/light top. Faded Jeans. Blush-ish accessories. Tousled hair.
What elements do I prefer from each?
I’d like the super faded jeans, but my light Levi’s are just too snug. Alas. I LOVE the red lip of the short haired lovely above. Red nails would be a fun touch, too! I’ll take the interest of the super chunky sweater in the middle! Give me the pushed up sleeves on the right and the blush shoes and cropped hems of the first outfit.
What do I not want?
No holes in my jeans, thank you. I also can forgo the half-tuck with a chunky sweater. Really? How can that be comfortable? Those are the pictures I know weren’t taken for wearing, but only for posing. Ick. What else? I’ll pass on the long sleeves.
What do I own to work with?
My sweater isn’t nearly as interesting as the one with the popcorn stitching on the sleeves, but the leather pocket detail (and back zipper) give this one’s something extra. I’ll wear my 501’s because, well, they fit. (Some days are just like that.) You are seeing the first real outing for my new-to-me pink loafers. I was unsure about keeping them, but they’re pointy, pink and studded, so I won’t hold their loafer-ness against them. I’ve had the pink tote for a few years now. It’s fabulously soft and great for travel or days when I am toting Mama’s things and my own. I like the feminine polish that “matching” your shoes and bags give. As for the red lip? I’ve got that!
How did it turn out?
I could do this look again and again! If you are wondering, no, none of the orginal looks featured a scarf, but I needed one! I also amped up the necklaces and earrings a notch, because I am all about the accessories. I wore this outfit the day there was a trash fire in front of our home and I lost the pendant from my long necklace… Sigh. I keep looking around in the yard, but no joy. Not valuable, just sentimental.
The Red Lip
I love a red lip and rarely wear one. I know so many of us have gotten out of the lipstick habit. It may be time for a Red Lip Week just to get into the holiday spirit! If you struggle to find your red lip, this might have some tips… This one is Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour (not really) lipcolor–Eternal Cherry. It’s intense.
How About You?
Do you loafer? Do you rock a red lip? Or does the thought make you break out in hives? Is your coloring warm or cool? Do you have a favorite red lipstick? What is it? Would you join me for a Red Lip Week? Do you prefer your hair coiffed or more tousled? Do soft colors in winter feel frosty to you? Or just plain wrong? Do tell! I won’t be offended. Believe me…
Stylishly AND gratefully yours,
