Outfit Of The Day for February 2, 2012. Quick Change From Work To Play

February 2, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day, Shopping

A quick way to change a look is to simply swap out the bottom half, in this case my pants and shoes! This blouse is … J Lo from Kohls! If you ever have shopped at Kohls you know almost everything is “take 30% off” and then with a coupon “take an extra 20% off” you pay about $20. In the case of this blouse, I thought the color made the fabric and the sleeve detail look more expensive than it was. It is a little boxy so I belted it with a leopard print scarf. I find leopard prints to be a go-to way to blend just about any color — with black! Leopard prints seem to match all skin tones and hair coloring, and can pull an outfit together in a natural way.

Top: Jennifer Lopez Pintuck Charmeuse Top, no longer available. Belt this Vanessa Bruno Crepe Satin Blouse, now $172.

Sash: My own leopard print scarf from the 80s. This Lily and Lionel Animal-print Wool Scarf, now $105 is a great value, or get this Vivienne Westwood Leopard-print Silk-chiffon Scarf, $240

Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff Black Classic M.A.C. Clutch, $295

For Work Look:

Pants: Rachel Roy True Waist Cuffed Pants, now 70% off, $103.50

Shoes: Chloe Platform Pumps, no longer available. I’m loving these Nicholas Kirkwood Hidden Platform Pumps, Now $317.99.

For Play Look:

Boots: Robert Clergerie Leather Bootsno longer available. These Robert Clergerie Women’s Timot Over-the-Knee Boot, $329.59 have a rubber sole, which is great for wet weather.
