Outfit of the Day: Stripes & Bows!

This OOTD involves one of my new favorite sweaters. I'm the kind of person that gravitates toward neutral colored clothing with one focused pop of color, and this outfit is just that!



This sweater is from Asos.com, and I fell in love with it because of its bow detailing on the back. It gives a very feminine touch to an otherwise very classic looking sweater.



I also love that the black and white color scheme allows something like red lips and gold earrings to stand out a bit more. This lipstick is Revlon's Cherries in the Snow, and the earrings are from Express.


For other accessories, I chose my rose gold Michael Kors watch and MARC by Marc Jacobs black handbag. For shoes, I'm wearing my red Jessica Simpson heels to tie the red lips in and add some more color! The black pants are from Express.



My gold ring is from Express, and has been my favorite ring to wear lately!




Hope you all have a great week!
xx, Allison

  23. I love this outfit - the bows on the back of the top are just so lovely. I bought myself a little new years gift of a Michael Kors watch last week - I was SO tempted to go for the one you've got on with this outfit, but ended up going for one with even more bling to it :)

  27. Lovely. Classic and stunning.
    Where'd all the snow go? =D
    Can't wait until spring. I really like this outfit on you.
    Out of curiosity, how comfortable are those shoes? I like the way JS shoes look but they've never seemed all that comfortable...

  55. That top is so cute!

    I'm going on holiday to America in the summer and I was wondering if you could do a video/blog post about some of the best beauty items to pick up over there from beauty brands that aren't global, like Tarte, Make Up Forever and Sephora's own brand. And maybe your fave brands/shops? I'd love to hear about the places you shop, seeing as you have such cute taste! Thanks! xxx

  56. So classy! I love it:) And you look stunning with red lipstick!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. You look so classy!!! The top is fabulous!!! I need it desperately. Overall fabulous look.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I would avoid the in-store Sephora brand in the States. The quality isn't great, and it is rather expensive for the quality of the product you're receiving.
