Happy Wednesday ladies. We had a short break from the wind, rain, and hail storms yesterday which was a welcome change. It wasn’t warm but the sun was strong which gave us a chance to get out for a photo shoot. I know many of you are buried in snow so I’m not complaining but the cabin fever is real and it’s nice to get out of the house.
Today I’m styling another terrific piece from Artful Home’s new winter collection.
This beautifully tailored shirt combines taupe, black, and black and white stripe fabrics for a modern interpretation of the button up. The sleeves and back are black. The front, back yoke, and collar are a black and white stripe and the side panels are taupe. It’s designed by Alembika who pieces fabrics for movement and creates fun silhouettes with a modern look. I’m a big fan of their modern shapes. I shared this jacket by Alembika with you last fall and it’s become a fast favorite that’s in heavy rotation in my wardrobe these days.
The classic A-line shape of this tunic has lots of movement because of the inset taupe, triangular-shaped side panels. I’m wearing a medium and could easily have worn the small because it’s cut generously. I’m wearing my most comfortable black jeans which I’ve styled here, here and here. I opted for black boots with a low heel to elongate my leg and help me look as tall as possible.
To continue the black and white stripe theme I added these curved earrings by Susan Kinzig from Artful Home. I adore the glow of pearls and am always looking for modern ways to wear them. These fit the bill! They’re ultra-light curves of shiny and oxidized sterling silver with white pearls along the sides. The oxidized silver is black and the polished sections look white. I expect these to be worn as much as these favorites from last spring which you’ve seen me wear a ton.
We’re due to be slammed with another storm tomorrow so I’m running to the library and trying to get all outside errands done.
Are you a fan of black and white stripe like I am?
How about pearls?
Thanks for reading ladies and stay warm and dry.
A big thank you to Artful Home for gifting the shirt and earrings. I was compensated and all opinions are my own.
