Style Statement Tuesday

My co-worker calls Tuesday the armpit of the week. Another friend calls it Monday's evil twin. I call it Style Statement.


Here's what's up.

This week's Pinterest inspiration look is probably my favorite of the three. It looks crisp and clean. Also very classic. I just love it. It's totally me and fits 100% with my 'Classic Pretty' style statement. Here are my takes. Yes, takes. I couldn't decide on just one look.

Jacket: Target; Top: Banana Republic Factory; Belt: NY&Co: Jeans: Gap Factory; Bag: Nine West; Shoes: Old Navy

Jacket: The Limited; Bag: Cole Haan; Watch: Michael Kors

You might notice that I changed some things. For starters, I do not own anything Hermes. So, there's that. Secondly, I don't really look great in yellow. My skin just doesn't jive with it. In my first look, I changed the jacket to black and changed the bag to yellow. In the second look, I changed the jacket to pink. I didn't use a sparkly necklace, but instead chose a jeweled top to mimic the look.

Also, the photographer (my husband) was getting irritated with me because it was snowing and the wind was blowing like crazy and he was ready to get this over with. That explains the poor picture quality, the crazy hair, and the shortage of pictures. You'll just have to forgive me on this one.

I think the black jacket mixed with the yellow bag looks good. I like the mix of texture and brown with black. Call me crazy, but I love this bag.

I've had this pink blazer for about a year and have worn it only once or twice. I've just never felt comfortable in it. So, automatically I'm self-conscious about how I look in this. I do like the pop of color, but overall I think the black jacket looks the best for sure.

Which do you like best?

Link up and share your style! I'm also linking up here, here, and here.



  1. Both of these variations are cute but I think my vote goes for the pink jacket!

  2. I love the looks, white pants are truly versatile. Thanks for the party :)

  3. Cute outfits! Love your pink blazer and white flare pants!



  4. Stopping by from the link up! Love your outfits and LOVE your hair! I wish mine would A. grow already and B. hold a curl that well!

  5. I like the pink blazer the best and your hubby is wonderful for waiting and taking the pictures as you made your changes! Thank for hosting and have a fantabulous afternoon!

  7. Pink! The pink blazer looks fantastic on you. The yellow blazer in the pin is what adds the pop to the outfit. Without it, it's just an outfit full of neutrals. The pink is the pop to your neutrals. Just my opinion, of course.

  8. You look adorable. I'm loving white trousers, skinny jeans and shorts for spring and summer. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  9. So cute, I love your pants!



  10. LOVE Your choices with white pants! They are so easy to style and yet a little difficult! Thanks for the inspiration!

  11. I saw that photo on Pinterest awhile bag and LOVE it. It's such a simple outfit yet looks so fantastic. I love love love both of your variations! I'm honestly not sure if I could pick one. I am loving bright pink for this season, but there's something so classic about a black blazer. I think you've done a phenomenal job with both, and I'll definitely need to try out both of these looks with my own closet!

    Also, thanks for the linkup! Glad I got to join!
