Hey there, lovely!
I bet we can both agree that sophistication never, ever goes out of style.
And, in my opinion, nothing’s more timeless than an ensemble that walks the delicate line between tasteful simplicity & ladylike glam. Therein lies your inner Audrey.
When crafting a classic yet captivating look, here are my 3 steps to surefire, statement-making simplicity:
1.Keep it monochromatic.
- An eye-catching neckline, impeccable detailing or a hint of asymmetry will up the visual interest when sticking to a simple color palette. The black top I’m wearing in these photos is now only available in a classic ivory, which would be a perfect wardrobe addition as we transition into spring!
2.Pull your hair back into a feminine up-do.
- Nothing makes me feel as polished. I use this hair tool to create both top knots and low buns. It’s my secret-weapon.
3.Stick to classic baubles.
- Pearls, baby. Or diamonds, of course!
But you know what really steals the show when it comes to this particular look? These nude heels. They epitomize statement-making simplicity. When classic neutral pumps are given a little extra something special (ie: the darling bow embellishment), they become anything but ordinary. Better yet, these babies are ON SALE!
Another classic yet statement-making essential is this Burberry bag. Isn’t it dreamy? My mother-in-law picked it out for me this past Christmas, and I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect bag myself! Burberry’s iconic style and exceptional quality ensures many (and I mean many) years of use!
On a completely unrelated (but seriously fabulous!) note, I’ve decided to start closing each blog post by sharing insider deets on the best current sales and steals! As a self-proclaimed shopaholic (that still likes to save!), there’s nothing better than finding that perfect little something, unless that perfect little something is on sale! Since I already keep up with current sale info (promo codes, shipping info, sale deadlines) for myself, I figured sharing is caring! See below! xo
