Sometimes, especially as a fashion blogger I think we can get wrapped up in making every outfit a ‘statement.’ With my ever changing body, my desire to mix up classic pieces I already own has only amplified. There are so many ways to switch out those classic capsule wardrobe items and accessories have become my new best friend.
Parisian style has always been in style. I mean, can we talk about how everyone in Paris is so chic? Just walking around makes you wonder how they do it. So understated, so classic and yet so edgy. It’s a real wonder of the world.
Although I was hesitant to wear horizontal stripes after that last experience, I have been living in this tank. It’s so long and the most comfortable cotton, perfect to layer under a light spring jacket. I decided to pair it with my new boyfriend jeans that I can’t stop wearing. These maternity jeans are fitted in the perfect places yet so stretchy and have the full belly panel. I’m still torn on the belly panel – I’ve been told it will be more crucial as I get bigger but right now it’s still a little loose and makes me feel a bit suffocated at times. I have been rolling it down and like how this pair has a deep cut in the back so the panel isn’t full circle.
After I added my light anorak (which is a spring staple you all need!) I was craving something fun to mix it up. I debated adding in these earrings but decided on this fun silk scarf. I loved how the colors meshed and felt like it added some brightness to my look. Now, hopefully we can get back to this weather this week after the freezing cold weekend.
How do you guys modernize those classic looks?
