Sugar and Spice

Sugar and Spice

Being a twenty-something means constantly searching for your identity. Whether that be in books, music, or fashion, aesthetics get meshed together, and we become so much more complex than we realize. This is especially true for fashion—sometimes we want to maintain a romantic style with lace and ruffles that enhance the daintiness of the décolletage, and other times we just can’t say no to those perfectly distressed jeans. So why choose? The beauty of youth is rebellion, which most definitely includes your wardrobe.

For this look, I started off with a white ruffled blouse that has details to die for––perfectly flared sleeves and lace detailing. I loved the blouse because of its romantic feel; I’m a total sucker for necklines that reveal my décolletage and ruffles to compliment. The ruffle trend has never died in my eyes! To tastefully contrast with the delicate look of the blouse, I chose to pair it with charcoal distressed jeans and lace up heels. I absolutely love to combine distinct styles into one outfit…which is the magic of fashion! You make your own rules. As long as you feel great in it, wear it!

The only “rule?” to maintain a look like this, it’s key to keep jewelry and accessories to a minimum. I opted for dangly hoops, a dainty necklace, and some subtle arm candy to avoid distracting from the whole ensemble. I usually keep my accessories simple and elegant, so this helped me stay true to my personal style. To add a final touch, pair this outfit with a large tote for day and a slinky chain bag for night.

Whether you are going to brunch with some gal pals or running to the office, this look will definitely add some spice to your sugar!
