Like most people around the country, I headed to a Super Bowl party yesterday. I was completely apathetic about both teams and it’s purely chance that my Super Bowl outfit had the colors of the winning Seattle Seahawks. If the Steelers aren’t in the Super Bowl, I will typically just pull for the team with the least amount of rings so no one challenges the Steelers 6 championship rings record. I initially was going to wear black, coated skinny jeans with a blouse and statement necklace, but it felt a little too dressy for the occasion. So, I opted for a simple plaid shirt I found at Target and a pair of skinny jeans I haven’t been able to fit into for over a year! Thanks to the master cleanse and Dietbet, I’m back in my Tory Burch zipper jeans!
It was a surprisingly balmy day of temps close to 70 degrees. It was hard to believe Snowmegeddon of Atlanta was just five days prior.
It is still hard for me to wear flats with skinny jeans. Being a petite and curvy girl, I always feel the need to wear high heels to elongate my silhouette. These nude color (nude for my complexion) pumps from Aldo are pretty comfortable.
Of course, I still had to glam up the outfit with a chunky necklace and some fun bracelets. What did you wear for your Super Bowl party?
Last weekend my husband and I headed to a friend’s house for a dinner party. It was a rainy and gloomy evening so I wanted to brighten the mood with a fun outfit. What could be more fun than a polka dot peplum top and red skinny jeans? I must admit that I am very self conscious about by thighs and it takes courage for me to wear anything other than dark pants. These James jeans are remarkably comfortable and somewhat slimming. A trick I use to distract from my bottom half is to really dress up my top half. The peplum top gives the elusion of a smaller waist and the statement necklace draws the eye up towards my face. My mother gave me this cute little Talbots clutch a while ago and I loved how the stripes mixed well with the polka dots. Lastly, a nice stiletto heel makes the legs appear longer and me appear taller! I hope these little tips can help you when piecing an outfit together.
Rihanna is just that chick that every woman wants to be and every man wants to you-know-what. We could all stand to read a page from her book of style. She’s a trendsetter and a total fashion risk taker, but it somehow all works on her. I admire how she has the ability to look so cool and appear like she didn’t even try. I have been flirting with the idea of wearing a fitted crop top and Rihanna styles it perfectly below. She kept it simple in all black with skinny jeans and topped it with an oversized boyfriend blazer. I think the key to wearing this look is balance. Find a bottom with a higher waist so you won’t be revealing too much skin. Low-rise jeans with a cropped shirt can come off a little…..well…you know. I’ve re-created this look with every item under $100!
The necklace is from River Island and is very reasonably priced. You can see her debut Rihanna for River Island collection fashion show on one of my previous posts. I’m going to try to get my nerves up and rock a fitted crop top. I’ll be putting in many hours at the Bar Method and staying away from carbs. Do you dare to bare your midriff??
