Silk Cropped Pants + Silk

Goodwill, how I love thee. This entire outfit, with the exception of the shoes was purchased at Goodwill.

Outfit Details

Cropped pants are supposed to be one of the hottest trends this spring. I purchased these earlier in the season because I wanted a good pair of silk pants. When I purchased them, I doubted that I would wear them again because these are not your every day pants. However, once I came across this Marc Jacobs (BNWT) blouse at Goodwill, I knew these pants would be a perfect fit. I wanted a cute date night look that was functional and non-traditional to the standard dress. I also wanted sparkle and shimmer to this look so I added this beautiful embellished sequin silk jacket and a pair of satin shoes. For a hint of color, I added this lace evening clutch and of course a bold lip because red is my favorite color.

Denim on Denim + Brown Oversized Coat

If there is one outfit you can never go wrong with is, denim on denim. Just like denim, it’s a classic and classic never goes out of style. I wanted an easy no brainer outfit for work because (and if you’re office allows) go ahead and pull out your denim shirt and rock that denim on denim look. It’s effortless and a no brainer AND you can practically accessorize it in any which way you feel.

Outfit Details

I don’t really know what era acid wash became a thing but all I know is that in 5th grade, I started the trend. My mother accidentally bleached my favorite pair of blue jeans. My options were either I wear them or donate them. Being the rebellious, fearless and fashion risk-taker I’ve always been, I said, meh, I’ll wear them to school. The next day at lunch time, Lesly, an oversized flunked out 5th grader had A LOT to say about my “poor girl” jeans but I laughed it out. I admit though, my cheeks got extremely red and I do remember being embarrassed but I got over it and wore them over and over again. As an adult, I’m still wearing acid wash but of course, I traded in the jeans to a top. In order to keep this casual cool, I added a pair or leopard heels and an oversized coat for warmth.

T H R E E M I X: Victoria Beckham for Target Fuchsia Trouser

I was excited for the collection because I was a major Spice Girls fan and I like Victoria Beckham’s minimalistic approach to fashion. I went crazy at Target that morning but thankfully our stores had no mob rush so I was able to shop without much of a hassle.  I purchased a total of four pieces, the yellow shift flower dress, the pink with scalloped trim dress, the white and black slit skirt and these trousers. Since I’ve had these piece close to a year now and worn them a handful of times, I will say they’re very well made. The fabric is not itchy or too thick and it irons/steams fairly easy. The trousers did begin to create those little balls of fabric in the inner thigh from rubbing and another piece that got damaged from wearing a necklace. The fabric is very delicate as it seems to get damaged easily. Of course, I wasn’t expecting top quality for the price I paid so I’m happy with my purchase.

Outfit Details

The pants might seem like they were my favorite from the collection but it was actually this skirt. I wanted to wear the pants in three different ways because they seem intimidating because of the color but the trick is to be able to work around the pants. I made sure for each outfit to let the other pieces standout since the pants are a standout on their own; I let the top pieces be the center piece. I made sure to keep accessories to a minimum so that I wouldn’t overwhelm the outfit and avoid looking like Pepto-Bismol.
