Classic Vibrancy…

Happy Monday! How were your weekends? Mine was a little play but mostly work! As I mentioned, last week was my finals week for my grad program and I knocked out my thematic unit plan and a 27 page paper in the last 6 days! (I deserve an adult beverage lol) Anywho, on to today’s outfit. When it comes to my personal style, I like to play with color, but I also love classic looks. In this look, I combined my love of the two. So while I kept the base classic, with a black fitted boyfriend blazer, striped top, and jeans. I also added a leopard scarf for warmth and neutrality and added my chartreuse loafers and red bag to add vibrancy. This is pretty much one of my go to staple looks during the Fall, so look forward to seeing variations of it here on the blog!  
Style Guide: Just because it’s Fall, don’t shy away from incorporating vibrancy into your daily looks. Adding a brightly colored bag, shoe, or scarf, (hell all 3!), can really take the simplest outfit to the next level!

THE LOOK: | Blazer: Express (gifted by my honey 3yrs ago), similar option here! | Striped Sweater: F21 (3yrs old, but loving this option and this!) | Jeans: Gap Premium Skinny | Loafers: Urban Outfitters (lusting after these!) | Vintage Cranberry Coach Bag: Only $20 from an Atlanta thrift store! | Scarf: Aldo | 
Linking up for Monday Mingle today!
What are some of your staple looks for Fall?? I’d love to hear from you! 
Have an amazing day!

    Amen to incorporating vibrant colors during fall! I love it when I see a girl walking down the street in bold hues on a gray day. And the primaries with stripes is darling, Chioma! ~Sarah

    Chioma, love, love, love this looks! All of the wonderful bright colors, mixed with such fun patterns. Is that a $20 Coach bag? Score! A classic. My ultimate fall staple is the denim jacket.. I have dark and light wash and wear pretty much every season. Love a scarf and fedora too :). Also, have no idea why I have not been officially following, but I am not via Bloglovin'!

    Super cutesy shoes! Good suggestion about wearing color into fall. I have so many bright items from spring/summer and was worried I would have to put them away. Maybe now I won't! 🙂
