Stylenspire: 'ber days

Wherever did September days run to? And what exactly happened with October? November days are also almost gone! Each day seem to run on by and all of them together are gone before you know it. Now I understand why I was asked to petition God for 30hours per day and 10days to a week. Chuckles* As if that can ever happen.
Though we cannot ever go back into those days, we can relive the joys and challenges they have brought us. We can give thanks for this year in its entirety as it nears its end, and with grateful hearts look forward to the blessings ahead.

In cold months as we have now, the key to creating each outfit is layering. Each layered piece will lend style while adding warmth to your whole look. I paired the blue cardigan with my dress to bring out the deep blue of the dress, but also to elongate/accentuate my slim shape with its length. A shorter cardi would have cut the dress in half, focusing on my short torso which would not look right.

Style tip: When layering, add fashion pieces that will give warmth with its volume and not bulk. Use the pieces to accentuate you physique without ill-defining your body parts.

Outfit deets: C.Wonder Tip Cardi (similar here) + ALICE+OLIVIA Macie Ombre Boatneck Dress (styled here) + Theory Jacket + Fur Trim (belongs to another piece) + Donald J. Pliner two toned heels + Laser Cut Out Clutch + Necklace + Prada sunnies are each fab finds from my favorite TJ Maxx

Stylenspiration: "Let your beauty of the day be borne of a grateful heart. Layer it with thanks and style it in praise." Y.S
