I love the beginning of the year in eastern North Carolina for a few reasons. One of those reasons is that it is the official start of spring. Yes, you read that right. With temperatures in the mid-60s, plants are in bloom and stores begin putting out spring collections of sundresses, blouses, and the cutest denim pieces.
Because we are talking about North Carolina, it’s likely that one day I’ll drive with the windows down and the next I’ll grab a scarf, but the transition between seasons is a gateway for a wardrobe masterpiece. I’m inherently cold-natured, so I wear sweaters well into March, but this Fashionista went cold-shoulder on a warm January day. If you aren’t quite ready to break into pastels, a darker print like this is a perfect transitional piece.
Off-the-shoulder tops are flirty pieces, and this Fashionista rocked that up with a pair of distressed black jeans. Add a pair of ripped jeans to your closet and trust this Fashionista’s example of being able to pair them with any outfit and your favorite accessories. I love how perfectly the earrings look with an off-the-shoulder top, and the dainty necklace is gorgeous. Distressed denim can easily overpower the rest of an outfit, so the plain booties and simple accessories will attract the eyes to the other details.
This Fashionista mentioned that her favorite piece of the outfit is her watch. She wears it frequently and it pairs perfectly with everything. I adore her entire outfit because between the gold jewelry, the neutral print of her top, and the cream colored bag, the details of the outfit really complement the distressed denim. Whether it be a casual day of shopping or a night out with the girls, the details of this outfit are perfect for it all.
