I know spring has been teasing us all, but it’s not quite here yet! And the fickle weather makes it difficult to dress up for a night out or special event. My solution? An ultra stylish look that’s still just the right amount of cozy and fancy.
First off, can we talk about this sweater?? I think it’s safe to say that ruffle sleeves took us all by storm this past year. I have this tiered ruffle sleeve sweater in both black and grey—and I wear them all of the time. The price point is great ($78), especially if you’re on the fence about the ruffles.
And the skirt! Well, I fell in love at first sight with this olive green suede and leather midi skirt…it’s a forever piece! We had a ball at the Tibi outlet when we were in Sea Island last month for The Southern C Summit, and this amazing skirt was part of my haul. I just love how luxurious the suede looks and feels as it’s wrapped around the waist, and how the leather panel subtly shows on the side. There’s also a covered pocket (!) which is always, always a selling point for me. The rich olive color is a nice transitional tone; I know I’m wearing this piece with a sweater nonstop now, and with a ruffle tank like this one come spring!
But let’s not forget about these shoes. I actually purchased these gold Gucci heels before Christmas; they were pre-order but I just knew they were going to be worth the wait. I had major FOMO not getting them last year, and I was not going to miss out again! I almost forgot about these beauties until they arrived on my doorstep…and it was pure joy opening them up! They’re decently priced for Gucci, and they’re versatile enough for me to justify the price tag. These are the kind of shoes I’ll be dressing up and down; the gold is dressy enough for a special event, but the style is casual enough to pair with my favorite boyfriend jeans. You know I love those pieces that work double-duty. Truly, MKR
