Fashion’s Favorite Jacket

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #70: The Olive Bomber
Pilot’s Uniform or fashions favorite outerwear trend? “The Olive Bomber” has caught on like wildfire over the past year. It’s a year round closet staple because of it’s minimalist charm. The versatility makes the bomber easy to wear season after season. Jacket can be paired with so many looks from a two piece set like I’m wearing to jeans and a plain tee for a more casual approach. I’ve also seen it paired with striped midi dresses or kept simple with a LBD and sneakers. Once this trend got picked up by celebrities and supermodels as their “off-duty” look that’s all it took to go viral. The Olive Bomber offers effortless street style and gives the athleisure aesthetic a luxe update. The Bomber trend has recycled for so many seasons that brands are having my for with the designs. I’ve seen bomber style jackets in faux fur, satin, jersey, over-sized, floral print, lace, sheer or accessorized with patches. That combinations are endless really with the versatility of the jacket.I accessorized look with jewelry from Betsey Johnson. Stud earring is shaped like a caption bubble and spell “xox” in the center. Fashion gold nameplate “Betsey” necklace from Betsey Johnson’s NYFW Spring ’13 Ready-To-Wear Show. Necklace was a anniversary gift from my finance, he supports my Betsy addiction lol

Where The Wild Things Are

Outfit of the Day #67: Where The Wild Things Are

Woke up this morning feeling very inspired. I try and remind myself on my worst days why I started my blog in the first place. To inspire people to be themselves and embrace their personal style. I am taking advantage of the weather that has been warming up with a printed crop tank. Tank features tie neckline, cropped hem and stretch fabric. It felt nice freeing my arms from winter’s style layering. 
I paired tank with pleated olive green skirt from Target Who. Wear. What Collection. Skirt features a comfortable stretch lining, sheer pleated overlay, midi length and stretch waistline. Skirt is very flattering on the waistline and hip. Pleated skirts are trending right now and they give off a very tailored and collected vibe no matter what it’s paired with. Have some fun with styling add a Moto jacket and boots for an edgy punk look. Or go the casual by pairing sneakers for a casual look or stay buttoned up for work in a oxford shirt and cardigan.
I accessorized look with Betsessories (Betsey Johnson Accessories). Lips shaped hand bag featured black linked chain handle, and top zipper closure. Gold Fox earrings feature green eyes and a silver circle encrusted in diamonds in their mouths. I completed the look with pointed toe faux leather ballet flats in a nude shade.

#Tuesday Shoeday: Wine Pointed Toe Flats

burgandy-flatsHappy Tuesday Shoeday loves. The season of wine has arrived. Not that kind of wine, I’m talking about the rich, deep, dark shade of red that appears every year around this time. As you know suede is all the range this fall season. So now you can try the trend in wine with these Pointed Toe Flats by Charlotte Russe. Flats feature a quarter inch heel and a slim strap that buckles at the ankle and adds a sense of sophistication to the shoe.

Priced at $22.99, these flats put a feminine twist on the classic loafer. Sizes 6 – 10 are available, flats run a little small so I recommend going up a size to achieve the perfect fit. The sleek pointed toe style and stitching along the front of the shoe captures the classic loafer details. Lightly cushioned insole so all day comfort.

Fall Hues = Season Blues

Outfit of the Day #55: Fall Hues = Season Blues
4fatshionforward_ootd55Happy Monday my loves, I hope you all had a good weekend. Today I’m bringing you dolls one of my office looks. This polka dot button up dress from Old Navy is one of my latest thrift finds and I found polka dot sunnies to match. I’m wearing a size 20 and dress runs true to size although it did fit snug around my stomach area. So to my apple shaped beauties definitely size up. Sleeveless dress features buttons along center front as closure, curved hem and detachable tie at the waist. The black and white classic polka dot makes the dress timeless and easy to style.
2fatshionforward_ootd555fatshionforward_ootd55 I paired polka dot dress with one of my favorite knit blazers. I wanted to add a pop of color to the look to break up the monochrome print. My cobalt blue blazer and flats got the job done nicely 😉 . I always see this shade of blue reappear around this time of year so I was prepared this time. I bought these faux suede flats from Charlotte Russe. Review will be up tomorrow so check back for that.1fatshionforward_ootd55I accessorized the look with a large clutch, midi rings, two beaded bracelets and sunglasses. Oversize clutch has a monochrome magazine cover print from seam to seam and a black patent leather handle. This clutch like midi rings are the perfect accessories for day to night looks.
