Last week I went to NYC with one of my dearest friends, Cathy Williamson of The Middle Page. One of the best things about blogging is all the amazing friends I have made and Cathy is at the top of that list! Cathy and I always have so much fun together, we definitely have similar taste in clothes so shopping with her is always a blast! In fact, there were 3 items (you can shop them below) we both bought in NYC because they’re that good!
We picked up this blazer at Alice & Olivia and both fell in love with it the moment we laid eyes on it. The metallic finish makes this blazer quite a statement piece and head turner no doubt! We thought it would be fun to style it 2 different ways. It is a bit on the pricey side, so I also linked several other of my favorite statement-making blazers below at all price points.
SHOP MY LOOK:
SHOP THE 3 ITEMS WE BOTH BOUGHT IN NYC:
After we both tried on tons of booties we decided on these amazingly chic black booties because the width around the ankle is wide enough so our skinny jeans fit perfectly into them and the heel and pointy toe heel make them incredibly cool! These boots also come in a really pretty leopard print which I had to get too since the black ones were so good!! I’ve already worn them both so I can attest that they’re very comfortable and wearable which always something I look for in a good ankle bootie.
The camo sequin jacket that’s under $100 speaks for itself, can you believe how fabulous it is and we both couldn’t believe the price! I’m literally wearing mine now and have gotten so many compliments on it already, so grab one before it sells out because it will!
Finally, our Rag and Bone skinny jeans in this metallic finish will so pretty for the holidays with a chic black blazer and some leopard heels.
SHOP MY FAVORITE STATEMENT-MAKING BLAZERS FOR EVERY BUDGET:
METALLIC BLAZER STYLED 2 WAYS:
DRESSY FOR A HOLIDAY PARTY OR NYE:
Cathy dressed hers up by pairing it with a gorgeous top also from Alice and Olivia, some sleek leather pants, and a classic black pump. This look could be worn to a holiday party, on New Year’s Eve, and even a dressy date night or girl’s night out!
MORE CASUAL FOR A DATE NIGHT, LUNCH DATE, OR GIRL’S NIGHT OUT:
I chose to style mine a bit more casual by pairing it with a graphic tee, I’m really into those right now by the way! If you don’t already own one I suggest buying at least one to wear under your favorite blazer or leather jacket, they’re such a hot trend right now! I’ve linked several of favorite’s below at all price points, happy shopping!
STYLE TIP: Make sure to style your graphic tee with a structured jacket of some sort and chic accessories such as my Gucci belt to ensure not looking too underdressed.
NEW DENIM REVIEW:
Can we talk about how amazingly cool these gray skinny jeans are?! I love the ultra high-rise making your legs appear longer and slimmer which is always a plus and the front ankle slits are to die for making these jeans anything but ordinary! These are also by Alice and Olivia, specifically they’re newest denim line called AOLA which is AMAZING. They don’t stretch out one bit so they hold their shape really well. They run true to size, I’m wearing a size 25.
I think this is like the 5th post I’ve done in these leopard heels because they’re that good! I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, if you only add one pair of heels to your shoe collection this fall, let them be leopard! Shop my favorite leopard heels at all price points below.
