Prefer to be Polished

I like polished looks. Those Olivia Pope, First lady Michelle Obama, Angela Bassett perfectly polished kind of looks. They are my thing. It may be hard for some to imagine being polished with rips, tears, and/or cuts in your jeans. Leave it to me to make that happen.  Distressed jeans give a super casual look, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with dressing up your casual.  I really enjoy getting all dolled up but I also like feeling relaxed in my clothes. And let’s face it, sometimes casual dress is more fitting than a Kate Spade party dress and pumps.
Remember my Tracy Nicole coordinate outfit from last week?  Well here’s the crop top from that two piece set right here.  As if I need another reason to love her garments, she gave me one more.  I can use the pieces in different ways to make different looks.
My Jeans alone with a tank or a graphic Tee would create an awesome relaxed look. I like to call that my “run to the grocery store on a Saturday” wear.   I decided, however, to pair my distressed jeans with a sleeveless crop top, wool hat, cross body bag and heels.  WAIT, did she say wool!?  ---YES!  Hat fabrics are crossing seasons these days. Someone once said to me that they could not imagine wearing a wool or felt hat in the warm weather because it would feel like their head was going to catch a blaze at any moment. Well, listen if you can’t stand the heat then I suggest a nice straw one or no hat at all. I like to push the envelope a little so if it looks like I shouldn’t have it on, I might give it try.  Who made up all these little fashion rules anyway!?  Rules are meant to be broken so focus more on style instead of fashion and make your own!

Thanks for stopping by!
