Get The Look Thursdays: Bold Lips & the Drew Berrymore Sweater

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Sooooo just in case you guys have not noticed, my most favorite fall pieces are the Live a Little military jacket and my Express cheetah print infinity scarf that I have featured a couple of times on Get The Look Thursdays! Not a week goes by were I DO NOT wear these two pieces at least twice…I just love them!  But because I wear these pieces pretty often, I am always looking for new ways to style them…that way they look completely different than the last time, which can be tricky. Especially when I am going on day #67 of “NO PERSONAL SHOPPING!” Anywho, I have given myself a new challenge….learning how to make the most of my closet with what I have! Sounds a lot easier said than done, right? However, in actuality, it really is quite easy. It simply takes a bit more creativity on my end.

My dear friend, Francesca, from Italy is in town visiting Jason and I. So excited that she could tag along and see how a “READ” blog shoot goes down! 

For this lovely little look, I already knew that I wanted to conclude the ensemble with the military jacket and the infinity scarf. So I began building the look with the mustard yellow Banana Republic sweater aka the Drew Barrymore sweater. I call it the Drew Barrymore sweater because this past February while working the Annual Luncheon at New York City Ballet, Drew Barrymore said the following to me “Oh, I love the color of your sweater! Where did you get it?” Yes, I almost died and yes, I love this sweater a 1,000 times more since she complimented me. LOL. $69 well spent if you ask me (Jason doesn’t think so…)! After deciding to wear the sweater, I then decided to pair it with these awesome crop pants I purchased from H&M for $10. Super basic pants that every girl needs in her closet. From there I added the BCBG t-straps as it gives the ensemble a nice balance of classic yet edgy. And lastly, accessories…I decided to keep it simple with a black clutch, bronze pearls, an MK watch and two statement rings, because I wanted to complete the look with a little BOLD LIP action. AND YES, LIPSTICK IS AN ACCESSORY!

So, when you are looking to make the MOST of your closet and/or style your most favorite seasonal pieces differently than usual, simply consider wearing the clothing items you rarely wear. For me…I hardly ever wear the Drew Berrymore sweater or the H&M crop pants. But after giving myself a little additional time to be creative, I found a new and exciting way to wear them both!! I just love those moments when you have a FASHION EPIPHANY!
