Ageless Style: I See Spots & Link-Up


Welcome back for another installment of Ageless Style.  This months prompt was brought to you by Mireille and we are showcasing "spots" and our interpretation of that prompt. 

I am show casing a top that's been in heavy rotation for me this winter.  It's a twist on the classic leopard print, but with a subtle animal connection, and a girly twist due to the ruffles on the sleeves, and the soft shade of pinkish brown.  It's such an easy blouse to throw on tucked into a skirt, paired with black trousers and heels, or jeans and booties.  This week I am styling it for sprig because I have no intention of putting in into my fall/winter bucket for safe keeping,  rather I am repurposing it and pairing it up with lighter colors.  I love these white pants that I  recently picked up at H & M  for a spring style challenge I am doing.  I was hunting for a wide leg version but as soon as I put these on I knew they were the ones.  I am short and have short legs, so wide pants are somewhat difficult to find and pull off, especially since I am not patient or interested in taking them to a seamstress to have them hemmed.  Instead these straight leg, pixie pants, are the perfect fit, right off the hanger.  I love how soft they are, not to mention the slight stretch they have making them super comfortable for work.  I added a little pop of gold, brown and nude, to make the palette light and neutral to complete the look.  My favorite piece of jewelry are hands down these amazing hoops that I was recently gifted.  I had been eyeing them up for a while because they throw me back to the early 2000's and JLo used to wear them all the time.  I love that period of my life, dancing away nights at the club, and being young and carefree.  No, I don't need to go back to that time but I if I could go and dance the night away, I would do that again.  Dancing gives me so much joy and makes me feel alive.  So when I wear these hoops, I feel a little extra pep in my step and swing in my hips!
