What does your everyday style look like? Mine is usually dressy casual for the most part, simply because of my schedule, meeting and networking with companies and individuals. When I do choose to go more casual I like to wear some of the tops and sweaters from Splendid. They have very soft and comfy fabrics, most of which have some cashmere in the fabric blend. These are so soft and comfortable! I just recently discovered this brand in Houston while shopping in Highland Village. Stop by if your in the area, the sales team is super sweet and very knowledgeable about their product. In this post I have styled some of my everyday looks and shown you how to mix up your wardrobe wearing multiple brands for one great look . This will give you your very own unique everyday style.white blouse and faux fur vest

 

The white shirt with rose gold buttons is a new arrival… perfect for all your rose gold jewelry. The necklace and earrings I’m wearing are part of the newest collection at Kendra Scott.  A faux fur vest is all the rave this fall… Add skinny jeans and suede boots and your ready to start your day.

Everyday style faux fur vest

In this post I want to mix things up a bit, which is what my everyday style is all about. I like and prefer to wear clothes from all different brands, not  to be a walking advertisement for any one brand. At least on most days. Sometimes it is necessary for me to focus on just one brand that I am representing. As for me personally, I love the challenge of mixing  and matching designers and collections to create my own unique style. What is your preference? Do you dress straight off the mannequin ? If so , stop and consult a personal stylist at a major department store. Their services are complimentary and it can save you from making costly mistakes with your wardrobe. Your wardrobe is an ongoing investment and decisions concerning it should not be taken lightly, especially if you work out in public. The competition is fierce so its important to always look your very best.

Sweater Poncho

Another great option for your everyday style is a lightweight sweater poncho layered over a lightweight long sleeve top that can also be worn alone. This look gives you maximum versatility for cool mornings and warmer afternoons. Once again I paired this with my favorite skinny jeans to offset the fulness of the poncho, add your choice of boot.

The perfect stand alone or layering top … you’ll want multiple colors of this one, once you feel the buttery soft fabric next to your skin. So Comfy!

Tweed blazer with Denim shirt

Shopping in an open air shopping center can be chilly this time of year so I like to pair a blazer with a denim shirt. This look again gives me some flexibility depending on outside temperatures. Jeans of varying styles are appropriate with this look. For ease of this photo session I paired with the skinny jean but a boot cut jean would be my preference . Short booties and an Elaine Turner drawstring bucket bag complete your look.

I love a lightweight quilted jacket. This piece is so versatile and can be worn everyday for cooler days and nights over most styles. Pair over jeans, pants or structured leggings .

Layering tank

This layering tank I’m wearing has so much style that it can be worn without a jacket.This is perfect for those of us that live in warmer climates.The chiffon layer in the front with open detail provides plenty of interest to stand alone.

Long vest and winter white pants

I am serving as a Brand Ambassador for Trina Turk and love to wear her clothes. Here I have taken her animal print blouse and accessories to pair with another brand of vest and off white pants. Combining brands gives you your own unique look. Think about this when purchasing individual pieces to add to your wardrobe. The item your adding should go with at least 2 different outfits you already own unless it is evening wear. Check out my accessories ; Earrings, Clutch.

A long vest is the perfect alternative to a jacket when the weather is a little warm. Dress this up or down with pants or jeans.

Plaid coat

A tan and black plaid coat makes a classic statement. The length of this coat, often referred to as stadium length,  is long enough to cover your backside and perfect for sitting at a ball game. A little heavier for cold winter days, this coat is very easy to wear and does not feel heavy on. Check out the back detail in the photo below. (Clutch purse with fringed tassel available at Elaine Turner).
