Shut Up And Style Me

Screen shot 2013-02-13 at 9.51.29 PMOkay … we all get blocks in life. Road blocks, writer’s block (the bane of my existence), style block … all equally make me want to pull my hair out. Now we all know I have a fascination with black and white … well … everything. From my home to my closet to my bed … I’m a little crazed about minimalism. It’s simple, it’s clean … and above anything else, it is timeless. And when I see it in any shape or form … I need it then and now.

So when I was browsing in H&M this past weekend and came face-to-face with this black and white vertical striped sleeveless button down … I had to make it mine, therefore I did. I literally was counting down the hours until I could slip it on for work. But when that moment came … NOTHING flowed right, outfit-wise. All perfect ideas I had involved a maxi skirt and very Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 looks … but nothing conducive for 32 degree weather. I would slip a cardigan over it, then try one of my blazers, and then work in mixing patterns … ugh. And nothing make me feel like, “hell yes … I’m a stud.” So I put it back in closet, only to try the next day and the next facing the same damn issues.

After day three of this nonsense … I’m sending out a battle cry to you all, because I can’t take it anymore. I’m lusting after this shirt, yet we can’t be together because I haven’t found its true mate in life to make me feel amazing. So my request? Style this look for me. Clearly you have no idea what I have in my closet, but somehow, someway I probably have what you are talking about. I like to think I have all the basics.

Take a look at this fantastic top and comment below explaining how you would style it. I need suggestions whether traditional or outside of the box. Go for it … any inspiration helps, for the love of Jesus, because for some reason I can’t wrap my head around this guy. Hey … we all have our moments. I’m sure Marc Jacobs has issues getting dressed in the morning … right?

I mean who doesn’t want to play the part of Rachel Zoe?! Rock it out. Make it “maj“. Looking forward to seeing what you guys are going to bring to the table! Comment either here or on my numerous social media presences like:

  1. In my Nordstrom expert opinion, I think this fantastic little number would look killer with a simple black (or white) crew neck sweater. Pop the color and put a short statement necklace around it. Put some skinny jeans (or ponte pants depending on how you’re feeling) and some booties and you’re hotter than hot. Don’t forget your arm candy and rings 🙂

  2. First, Juicy Couture’s spring collection has mega black and white stripe pieces! I think ud love it. Second, I’m wondering what this top would look like with colored jeggings? I know that doesnt help you as far cold weather on your upper body; maybe its a piece you save for spring through fall. If your work attire is more dressy, I’d pick a fitted high waisted pencil skirt (tuck the top in) and wear a blazer. The arm holes makes it a bit tricky to pull off in a professional environment (court room, doctor’s office, etc) without something hiding them. Or maybe its just one of those special pieces you tuck into your closet until you find its perfect “mate” and then you’ll get to rock your “Hell yes…Im a stud” look 😉

  3. I just heard about your blog today, & I’m loving it! (which is why I’m reading back to some old posts). Anyway, I would wear that shirt w/ bright yellow skinny jeans. 😉

    1. Hey Julie! I love that you’re reading along, makes me so happy! And yes … LOVE loud jeans for the spring, may need to scoop up a pair of neon ones for this top. Great suggestion!

  4. just heard about your blog today & i lahvesss ! okay sorry but anyways this top is super cute you say you like the whole minimalist, clean look… well this top with a pair of black leggings (or jeggings), boots or plain flats & a black blazer (cuffs rolled up, boyfriend blazer maybe) would be perfect !
