Change is my best friend

Inspired by this post from the fabulous Alixrose regarding how to spruce up your everyday blazer look, I decided to throw on my gray suede-like fringe Billabong vest over a cropped UO blazer.  I’m a fan of layering vests under blazers, but I’ve never tried wearing one over them.

Conclusion: I like the look.  It’s a simple fix to transform your typical blazer ensemble.

BTW, when most people are dying their hair darker for the winter, I decide I want to go lighter.  Always a constant in my life that makes things exciting, Change is definitely one of my best friends.

Have a fabulous weekend!  xo, Becs

Point me in the right direction

Oh dear Monday, how I loathe thee.  When I was younger and asked the random question about which super power I’d like to have, it was always the same — to fly.  If asked today, I’d want to have the power to freeze time.  Is it me or does it feel as if time is just whizzing by?  In the famous words of Jessie Spano from “Saved by the Bell”:

“There’s no time! There’s never any time!”

OK, end of daily rant.  I’m still feeling blazers/tops/sweaters with structured shoulders.  Since I’m petite, anything that gives me a proportional boost, including in the shoulders, is a plus.  Scored huge with this Funktional velvet blazer from Nasty Gal and can’t wait to next pair it with a bodycon dress/skirt.

The Jeffrey Campbell Carry boots are still available via Solestruck.com. Click HERE to see how I first wore these OTK boots with a casual dress.

If you’re on Chictopia, friend me!  I’m trying to post more often on there.  Thanks to everyone who’s entered my giveaway! The winner will be selected tonight with a post to follow shortly!
