Casually Striped


As much as I love dressing up, this is the type of outfit I typically wear on the average weekday.  It's comfortable enough that I can get down on the floor & play with my son...but still looks polished; like I put some effort into it.  And a bold red lip always makes me feel more pulled-together.  (Yes, those are snowflakes you're seeing in these pictures...our shoot was ambushed by the crazy NY weather!)




What I'm wearing:
Old Navy blouse (here), Forever 21 blazer (here), ELLE jeans, Accessorize necklace (here), Michael Kors watch, ALDO booties (on sale here), Rafē New York clutch (last seen here), Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche Target Red

What a great blazer! I actually think I might order this online!

Chris @ Granola2Glam said...

Awesome outfit....so spring, yet perfect for winter. I also love that you make f21 and old navy look like a million bucks!

Elizabeth said...

HI, I just love the blazer! I'm thinking about buying it but i just wanted to know what size it is and if it runs big?

Kimberly said...

Hi Elizabeth - I would say it's true to size...this one I'm wearing is a medium (which I ordered because F21 blazers sometimes run narrow through the shoulders & mine are quite broad)...but I wish I had bought a small, because this one is pretty big on me. Hope that helps!

Jessica Broyles said...

Love it... you look great! I love that lip color on you!
