The Style Files : Stripes & A Pop of Color

It's been a while since I have posted an outfit of the day, and also since I have posted. Today I attempted to capture my outfit as I put it together and there it on. Things have been and will be CRAZY in my life in the coming weeks so I will attempt to post whenever I am able to. :)

The Basics

Any cute outfit begins with the basics; a dress, a top, slacks, a skirt, shorts etc. In this case my basics were black leggings and one of my favorite striped sweaters. 

I added my Persimmon colored cashmere scarf for a pop of color and to accent my stripes. There's something about stripes and bright colors that I just love! 

To top it all off I wore my Burberry raincoat. I bought this jacket a few months ago and it has become a wardrobe staple. It's a great length, not too long - not too short,  & it  can easily be dressed up or down. I The quilted pattern, over sized pockets & toggle closures are details I adore.  


I consider shoes to be accessories as the ways in which they are able to transform and or compliment an outfit are nearly limitless.  Color, shape, style & texture are just a few of the assets shoes contribute to an ensemble. 

While our weather has been sunny and warm for the last few days today it became cold and rainy and so I brought out my quilted boots. These are great because not only do they contribute a little texture to any outfit but they comfy,  cute & warm. 

I've been in more of a boho chic mood as of late and so I layered my favorite watch & bracelets. My sister recently gave me the pink Kate Spade bracelet, not only do I love it but it also goes really well with my green beads :) 

I tend to change handbags pretty frequently and a few days ago I pulled out my Celine bag, I've been using it ever since. 


  1. Oooo...you have THE Celine bag!? Lucky lady!



  2. Hi Kecia! Here's the funny things about my style, this bag included, I had it before it had really become THE bag. We were going to London this past fall and I really wanted a new handbag, but I was determined to find one that zipped and that I was able to carry both on my arm and my shoulder, a much harder task than one might think. I saw this bag and fell in love, and it's been a wonderful addition to my collection :) Hope you are well, have a great day, and thank you for your comments!
