{Boldly Belted} Rock It & Roll It Style Challenge








{Denim Leggings ~ ASOS / White Tunic ~ Torrid / Denim Blue Cardi ~ H&M / Nude Patent Pumps ~ Guess / Handbag ~ LV Damier Azure Noe / Rock It & Roll It Items: {The Mimi Boutique "Valerie" Pashmina" in Coral and The Mimi Boutique "Isabella Multi Color Stone Drape Necklace"} / Large Gold Hoops ~ Beauty Supply / Turquoise Crystal Bangle ~ Handmade {Foreign Bazaar} and Gold Crystal Bracelet ~ Kenneth Jay Lane}

I was so excited when I opened the package that contained the two wonderful pieces, from Eboni. Thankfully, by the time I had got the items, I had my mind set on how I was going to rock them. I knew I wanted to wear them together. And that was the most challenging part - trying to come up with an idea that made sense. And looked effortless, and not too thought-out and planned. That is always a goal of mine when putting together outfits – just let it happen naturally.

I was headed to a dinner meeting on Friday evening {I am also an event planner and I am currently planning a whimsically fabulous wedding shower} and I wanted to wear something fun! I thought it was a great time to rock the pretty scarf and amazing necklace.

Being a huge fan of fun accessories and loving to pop on a cute belt whenever an outfit calls for one, I decided to wrap the scarf around my waist and tie it in a knot, letting the fringe hand down to add a bit of movement. I love how the pop of coral looks against a stark white top. I also love how the coral ties in with the blush shade of these fabulous nude pumps. The same fabulous nude pumps that I have deemed my “dinner only” shoes. They are great when long standing isn’t required. They are {unfortunately} uncomfortable.

The minute I put the necklace on, I was IN LOVE. I love the color combination, turquoise, coral, lime and navy blue – all on a gold chain, it’s STUNNING! I decided to wear my favorite HUGE gold hoops and 2 of my favorite crystal bracelets. I received so many compliments on this necklace; I was smiling the entire night.

I am very happy with the way this outfit turned out. It’s casual, fab, and fun – all at the same time. :)

What a fun challenge, HUGE hugs and thanks to Leslie for giving me the opportunity to be a part of it.

P.S. ~ Don't forget to enter to win a $50 shopping spree from Mimi Boutique.  They have amazingly affordable and gorgeous pieces!

  27. Good Job! Of course I would have never thought to do that with a scarf. Your blog gives me fashion inspiration...

  28. Yes! I was so hopin' for a scarf-as-bodacious-belt appearance. J'adore!

    As always, the proportions and color scheme are so on point! You just work clothes so beautifully. I mean, I was just sittin' here chucklin' because I'm always surprised even though I know I shouldn't be surprised, and that is just the most magnificent, creative, original thing you do :)
