striped jumpsuit

Hey y’all!

I know I have been absent from the blog for the last few months but the cold weather had me cooped up at home in sweats under a warm blanket. But now, FINALLY the warm weather is here and I am ready to get out of my blogging slump.

During the spring and summer I basically live in jumpsuits and rompers. I purchased this Universal Threads jumpsuit at Target earlier this spring. The vertical stripes are figure flattering and on trend this season. The fabric is structured yet lightweight which is great during this seasons warmer temperatures.

The neckline has a v-neck detail that is the perfect in length, not too low and not too high.

The cropped leg design is great for women of all heights. Not to mention it is also versatile because it allows the wearer to pair it with a variety of shoes styles. Dress it up with a pair of heels or wedges or dress it down with a pair of flat sandals.

Fuchsia Feelings

Things got pretty busy towards the end of last year. For those that don’t know, I started collaborating with Bowling Green Living Magazine as their fashion and style contributor. With the newness of the magazine and finalizing details on my first article, I stayed pretty occupied. But I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me as I partake in this new and exciting adventure.

Now that Christmas and New Years have come and gone and my first article has been published, things seem to be slowing down. So, after more than a month hiatus, I’m back on the blog. With that being said, let’s get started and talk about what you’re really here for, fashion!

As February quickly approaches, thoughts of Spring and warmer weather to come to mind. The dreariness of winter begins to fade away and bright colors start appearing everywhere, including clothing stores. So when it comes to the month of February and it’s so-called “Hallmark holidays”, I tend to follow these classic holiday trends and dress in a warm color palette in hues of red, pink and purple. Some might call this cliché but sometimes dressing for the holidays is what makes them fun.

So, whether you’re searching for the perfect outfit for a Valentine’s Day date or something to wear when hanging with your besties on Galentine’s Day (thanks Leslie Knope), fuchsia is a great color option. This bright and vivid purplish, red hue is sure to make you stand out in a crowd, especially during the season of love.

This dress screams femininity with its combination of ruffles and bow neck detail. It is from Back Down South boutique located here in Bowling Green, Kentucky. If you don’t already follow them on Instagram (@backdownsouthbg) you’re missing out. Back Down South always has the latest trending items that are both stylish and flattering. Be sure to check them out and give them a follow, you won’t be disappointed.

Hey y’all and happy Monday! Sorry I have been missing in action over the past week. I traveled to St. Louis for a meeting and pulled a couple of overtime shifts at work.

With the holiday season literally around the corner, I’ll be definitely be needing any extra cash for presents and the foreseen Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

Today, I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. Vests are one of my favorite cold weather accessory. I found this fuzzy sherpa vest at Target.

Styling & Detail

It is available in cream and black. This vest is warm and versatile. I promise you, it will quickly become a staple in your wardrobe. This vest has a gold zipper in the front that adds a touch of shine and elegance.

Under this vest, I wore a basic white fitted long sleeve crew neck shirt, also from Target. Target is the best place to get affordable fitted shirts. These shirts come in a variety of colors and are the epitome of comfort.

They are ideal to wear under vests and cardigans. Plus, they are priced at only $10! I swear, I have one in almost every color.

Accessories

For jewelry, I kept it simple and styled this vest with a long strand necklace that has a cream bead and gold tassel detail.

This necklace is from Nest Uncommon Goods, a local boutique in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Gold accessories are great to wear with this vest because they coordinate perfectly with the gold zipper detail.

Pairings

Lastly, I tied this outfit together with a pair of camo patterned jeans. Camo is a trending pattern right now and can be styled with a multitude of colors.

Because camo is such a loud and bold pattern, I like to style it with plain solid color tops, typically in the neutral colored family.

These camo jeans are from Old Navy. I know I have discussed Old Navy jeans in the past but I seriously cannot express how amazing they are!

These particular jeans are a mid-rise style that sit below the waist and are fitted through the hip and thigh. The raw edged fabric around the ankle adds an edgy and industrial feel.

Thanks for stopping by this Monday edition of Flights and Fashion. Stay tuned later this week for some Thanksgiving outfit ideas!
