Style Saturday | Working With Key Pieces

Hey Beauties!

I am a firm believer in wearing what makes you feel good and sticking to your guns when it comes to trends and having a set style. I am human, there are days when I want to rock that bright red lip and matching midi skirt and there are days when I don’t want to leave my yoga pants and cozy sweaters. It is so important to follow your heart and dress for you – and only you – and don’t be afraid to play with different styles or fall back on what you know works. 
While I tend to be a fan of more feminine and flirty outfits, sometimes I like to change things up and create simple outfits from key pieces in my wardrobe. This particular outfit is a mixture of classic pieces that I have on hand at all times – a white lace top, a leather jacket, a black legging and leopard flats. These are all items that can be worn a number of different ways and will never really go out of style. When I am feeling less than creative and looking for comfort in a simple outfit these are the pieces that I reach for. 

Top – Forever 21 | Leggings – Old Navy | Jacket – Dynamite (Similar) | Clutch – Forever 21 (Similar) | Shoes – Sirens (Similar

What are your favourite key pieces in your wardrobe?

    I love the mix of lace and leather, girly but edgy at the same time!

    I agree- wearing what feels good is so important! Also, leather and lace/crochet is one of my favourite combos, so this outfit is totally up my alley. You look great!

      Thanks so much Jen! I feel like a good leather jacket goes with everything but it pairs so well with lace!

    It's so important to dress for yourself and not others! I definitely know how it feels to not want to leave leggings and hoodies but sometimes you really do need to go for it. Your bag is amazing by the way!Rachael at
