Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: Color Block Top and a Black Leather Skirt


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! I’m extra excited to show you today’s look and also offer one lucky reader the chance to win a $100 Gift Card to Zuri Zuri by Flora (it’s open internationally)!

You know how sometimes you just discover an outfit that truly works? It’s comfortable, you feel good and it’s ever so chic? Well for me, this is that outfit. As soon as I saw this black and ivory color block blouse from Zuri Zuri by Flora, I just knew it would be a valuable addition to my wardrobe.

I’ve found it is the kind of neutral statement piece (yes, such a contradiction!) that simply works with everything – dress it down with your favorite jeans, or style it up with a polished pencil skirt, like this black leather skirt (which is currently on sale!). Oh and one of my favorite aspects is the embellished collar on this blouse, I added a gorgeous statement necklace to really play up this feature and add a little pop of color!

Meet Our Head Stylist…

Say “bonjour!” to this week’s Head Stylist, Rosalyn from My Fancy Pants. How fab are her boyfriend jeans paired with this striped top? This is such a perfect example of how to do layered outfits…

STYLE Q&A WITH ROSALYN:

How would you describe your style? I would describe my style as bright colors, bold patterns and often sequins. I love vintage as well as current styles. I need to add more basics my closet. My eye always goes for the bright colors and so my closet lacks simple items or colors.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? I am currently loving tomboy tennis, ( I was so lucky and was able to snag a pair of the Nike iridescent blazers which I can’t wait to wear!), fringe accessories and vintage fur. I also have enjoyed the fanny pack/belt bags this summer too, (something I never thought I’d say)! I am also always a sucker for J.Crew collection pieces, I snagged the Deco feather top and can’t wait to wear it too.

What inspired you to start your blog? I wanted to start a blog because I have a very un-stylish job as an RN but have always loved fashion and dressing up. My blog encourages me to be a little fancier day to day and is also a place where I can be creative and connect with other girls that like to dress up as much as I do.

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without: My Tarte Cheek and Lip Stain, my Chapstick, my Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Under Eye Concealer, (I never get enough sleep) for my tired eyes are my three daily must haves.

What is your best beauty trick? My best beauty trick is I often curl my hair with clips. To avoid the heat damage, I partially dry my hair after a shower, then twist pieces of my hair in small sections and secure them with hair clips. I then put on my make up, pick out my OOTD, then before I pull out the clips, I take my hair dryer and finish drying the sections still in the clips. I pull the clips and then comb it out with my fingers. My hair always feels much healthier and less dried out this way.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? If I could escape and getaway tomorrow, I would love to pack up the kids and the hubs and go anywhere but here. I love taking vacations with my husband alone, but I love family vacations more. Anywhere warm, that is. I feel like I am always freezing and so the thought of going someplace where a warm jacket is required, my enthusiasm starts to dwindle.

Tell us something not many people know about you? I have a really hard time purging my closet. I have a lot of clothes that I have yet to wear and when it comes time to purge my closet, if I haven’t worn it, it tends to linger.
