Black & Blue I Love You

So if you know me, you know I have a penchant for anything black and blue. It’s just my palette and I’m drawn to it every time. So in this #OOTD post (outfit of the day), I wanted to demonstrate how despite my best efforts (ok, not really), black and blue always finds its way back on me.

First look – Zeta Cardi by SexyPlus Clothing

By far one of my favourite and most versatile acquisitions, the Zeta panel cardi can be worn for business as a beautiful layering piece providing a polished finish, as shown here with a grey patterned leggings and black cami…

…or with a cocktail dress for a more formal look, as shown here which I wore to a Fall wedding this year.

And here it is in a different fabric and print, a striped black and blue version, and just as stunning but with a bit more electric pizazz.

Second look: Random pop of blue

I bet you’d never think of randomly adding the pop of blue to this look, but since the top is a bit short on one side and I like to completely cover my belly, I thought the blue cami would break up the monochromaticity of this outfit. I complimented the blue with a blue and black necklace.

Third look: Barcelona Long Lace Cardi by SexyPlus Clothing

This lace cardi is divine! Such a romantic and dramatic layering piece, it takes this blue maxi to a whole new level.

Fourth look: Bottoms Up!

A traditional combination for my Fall looks, a great tunic with blue leggings and a bootie. Would also look great with my tall boots.

Moral of the story? Don’t default to black! Of course it’s the most versatile and ‘slimming’ colour and we all love it, but you can sneak in some colour and express yourself more vividly.

Sandra & Parker

This post is one which I gather will appeal to many because of its easy wearability. The Sandra Cut-out dress by SWAK Designs is an easy to wear dress with a cool cut-out at the bust. It’s perfect for Fall with 1/2 sleeves and a knee-length design. The cut-out isn’t too revealing so you could easily wear this dress to the office or to a cocktail event.

I think most of us, would, by default, pair this dress with a black cardigan (and that would look sharp), but I wanted to show you how fun it can be when you step outside of your comfort zone, and opt for something fun. The Parker Cardigan is soft, comfortable, versatile and bright. And because I prefer a cinched look to outline my silhouette, I threw on a belt and I love the completed ensemble.

A tall black boot refines the outfit and balances the solids in this look.

Try something different when coordinating your outfits and you might be delightfully surprised. Turquoise zebra print and cranberry… or as SWAK calls it, Sandra & Parker 🙂

Special thanks to Sarah Taylor for taking my pics!
