Several weeks ago I styled a pair of white crop pants for a casual look. You can see that post here. This week you can see how I dressed up the look by changing the top, shoes and adding a sparkly bag.
The sandals are a taupe color and the clutch is what I would call pewter. I think it worked well together and you can't really tell they aren't the same color. The bag is covered in sparkles. I love my bling!
The blouse is a sleeveless button up made out of a light weight polyester that I bought at Kohl's by Vera Wang. I am not a big fan of polyester being the sole content of a clothing item, particularly in the summer. It can be hot, but this was not too heavy and for an evening out, or in the air conditioning I have no worries of getting too sweaty. The coloration is hard to see, but it has almost a greenish, gray tint in splotches along with the black and white.
I also topped this outfit with a barely tan 3/4 length sleeve sweater. I love the feel of this piece and use it often in the summer. It is so soft, light weight and comfy and can be dressed up or down. I added some simple metal jewelry. The necklace is a pair of gold an silver rings linked together on a silver chain, and I am wearing a gold cuff. Sorry we didn't have more detailed pictures from this shoot. But hopefully you get the idea.
I showed you these last two pictures to show you that I am an actual woman, and sometimes a bit silly.
