This is a guest post while J is away. Be sure to check out Whitley's blog, The Queen City Style!
For almost two years now, I've held tight to this image ripped from InStyle magazine, aka my style Bible, as it's been pinned front and center to my inspiration board. Olivia Wilde was nothing short of stunning in this sleek and modern Gucci jumpsuit paired with a House of Lavande gold neck plate and strappy sandals. I recently visited a super stylish friend, and to my surprise, she had the very same image pinned to the back of her closet! Furthermore, she was one step ahead of me in recreating the ensemble with the blouse and pants already stowed in her closet. She was kind enough to let me borrow the pieces for the sake of this outfit recreation. The necklace is the stunning Pegasus by Stella & Dot. The red sash, an item I style frequently on the Queen City Style, belonged to my grandmother. I thought I had styled it every which way until now! The Chanel bag is the one splurge item in my wardrobe, and my most prized treasure--YEARS of hard work and saving went into this! The shoes and earrings are Calvin Klein old.
