CLASSY CHIC | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

CLASSY CHIC | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Today I decided to dress as my alter-ego... preppy mixed with comfortable.  Though I occasionally enjoy dressing preppy, I like to add a touch of chic-ness and comfort to my outfit.  Today, I decided to wear a pair of skirt-leggings (an amazing creation, a pencil skirt and leggings in one!), with a comfy sweater. To dress the outfit up, I layered on my two favorite necklaces: my bubble-pearl statement necklace, and my delicate tri-chain pearl necklace.  Since both necklaces were gold and had pearls, they went together fantastically.  To finish off my look, I put on my favorite ankle booties, and my army-green and leather sleeved jacket.  This comfy-cozy outfit was perfect for the crisp weather, yet I still managed to look put together.

XOXO, Amanda
