On Saturday some girlfriends and I went to Lane Bryant’s NFL shopping event with Reah Norman of Plus Model Magazine and Styled By Reah (she’s just as beautiful in person as online).
We shopped, we twinned, we lunched.
When planning for a day of shopping, I have two goals in mind, the outfit must be (1) casual and (2) comfortable. A day at the mall is so much more fun when sporting a crossbody – so I’ll wear that almost every time. Recently, I picked up this adorable Aimee Kirstenberg crossbody bag [similar: here] in a color very close to Robin Egg Blue. So naturally, I put the outfit together around wearing this bag. I love wearing robin egg blue with purple. I always feel like a pastel princess – and who doesn’t want to be a pastel princess?
I threw on this lightweight purple top, an adorable suede jacket [similar] in light gray, my newest distressed black jeans and these darling flats [they’re really comfortable].
My Tiffany & Co shopping bag necklace was the perfect compliment to this outfit.
Why this works:
This outfit plays on different textures. The top is chic and feminine with an edge. The jeans are all edge, but they tie in perfectly with the metal tassle on the bag. This outfit is the perfect interplay of feminine and edge, without being too over the top.
