Work It Wednesday

I'm excited to be joining in on a new link-up party every Wednesday created by Jill of the good life titled "Work It Wednesday".  The premise is simple: pick one item and style it up three different ways.  Jill has been doing this on her blog for quite some time and now she has opened it up for others to participate and link up their posts! Fun!

For my first installment, I have chosen a piece that is high on my fall wish list: a pair of cropped pants in a beautiful rust color.






This particular pair is on sale at asos for only $27!  Holy bargain Batman.  I was on the fence about adding them to my cart and clicking "buy", but after this fun little exercise I am pretty convinced I need them!

Here is how I styled them for an afternoon lunch with your girls:

I am mad about plaid right now, so I paired the pants with this great JCrew shirt.  To femme it up I added a lace tank for underneath, slingbacks and loads of gold baubles.

Lace Tank
Gold Necklace
Watch
Satchel
Slingbacks
Bracelets

Next up, I have them styled for a cozy casual fall day of getting coffee (a Pumpkin Spice of course), browsing the book store and hitting up the farmer's market:

Cozy all the way with an oversize Grandpa cardi (my fave), a scarf that could double as a blankie and comfy riding boots.  I actually just bought these boots at Target and am in love.  They look so much better in person, and definitely look more luxe than their $36 price tag.  Check them out next time you are in the store!

Cardigan
Scarf
Glasses
Purse
Ring
Stud Earrings
Riding Boots

Last up, I've sexed them up a bit for a night on the town with your beau:


Oh yeah, I'm bringing out the leopard!  A loose blouse counters the slim pants, my favorite combo for a night out.  And aren't those shoes killer??

Blouse
Clutch
Shoes
Nail Polish
Earrings

I hope you enjoyed my first post in this new Work It Wednesday series!  Now head over to Jill's blog to see what others have created and to get in on the fun too.

  8. That second look has me craving not only Punpkin Spice lattes, but comfy fall weather and sweaters as well. That scarf is amazing.
