Style Swap: No Longer Neglected Military Blazer and Orange V-Neck Sweater.

Last Friday I swapped Styles with the Lovely JESS of J's Style. This Friday, I am doing it again. =) Once again I am linking up with HEATHER for "Pinned It and Did It" and both JENN and GINNY for their Style Swap Link Up. This week I "copied" this Simple, Layered Outfit from Jess because it was a no-brainer for me. It is Casual, Comfortable, Chic, 100% My Style (since I love Leggings) and Perfect for me especially now that I am a Mom.

I had very similar pieces to re-create this. I even have a Long Tank in that same Dusty Rose as Jess' Tee, but I wore this in Real Life yesterday and it would have been too cold for a Tank Top. I even wore a Leather Blazer on top. My feet were a little cold, not as much due to the temperatures (it was in the low 50s) but because of the cold winds. But what don't we do for Fashion, right? Especially as a Fashion Blogger. At the same time, I wanted to swap this look today, because I really wanted to wear my Military Jacket which was neglected for far too long (it was last worn on July 2013). I also made an effort to wear my Burnt Orange V-Neck Merino Wool Sweater which had been neglected in my closet (cannot find it on the blog but it has been over a year and a half ). Technically the Leopard Flats hadn't been worn in a while either, but let's face it, the Weather hasn't been on their side. And even these Leggings hadn't been worn since September (in this Cute Outfit). I could have added a Long Necklace to this but in this case less is more. I am liking how the Burnt Orange is pairing with the Olive Green. And Leopard pretty much goes with anything. My Makeup is a little more done than usual: Red Lips and Skye Blue Eye Lids. What do you think? Aren't sometimes the Simplest of Outfits, the Best ones? Don't forget to check out Jess' Blog to see her re-creation to one of my Outfits.

  7. I bet this look was really cute with the leather blazer too! I like going for the flats anytime it's even close to warm enough, so I certainly understand. :) Thanks for swapping with me again...I had so much fun with this link up!!
