city chic | striped vest top x jeggings

I turned back time the other day to reminisce about the personal style of my 20 year old self. My present self is amazed how much discomfort I was willing to put up with in the name of fashion. One of my iconic outfits must be a burgundy custom made pant suit. The fabric was all satin and both the blazer and the pants were fitted which meant no room for a misstep or a sudden weight gain. …since satin is not exactly the flexible kind of fabric, so it was about to rip by the smallest force. Not to mention that it doesn’t let your skin breathe. Believe it or not, I was rocking that satin, burgundy suit in the hottest summer months, even when it took me over a mile to walk from my parents’ house to the next bus stop. Oh, good old times!

My perspective on fashion and personal style has come a long way over the years. I am no longer willing to choose between comfort and style. I want them both. Plus I always look for clothing that I know will stand the test of time, which narrows my choices.

This striped top struck me immediately. It looks modern, yet it it is a piece of garment I can see myself wear in five years. It’s ultra chic and the stripes nicely elongate your upper body. The fabric is surprisingly flexible and comfortable for a “run around town from 9 to 5” kind of day. Since the top opens up around the waist, I opted for a soft a body suit underneath to make sure I don’t embarrass myself. The extra cushion always feels good.

I have talked about these most clever “dresses for shoes” before. Heelusions will add that little something to your heels to give them a fresh look. They are super comfortable and can be easily swapped between shoes with different heels. One of my favorite collection is the “city chic“. They make your shoes unique without making them inappropriate for a conservative office environment.

I wish you all a great start to the new week!

As always, thank you so much for visiting!

    Loving the Heelusions! They’re such a great idea. I’m currently in that “what do I sacrifice in the name of fashion phase” now that it’s summer. I want to be in shorts and silk tanks, but alas, work doesn’t allow that. So instead, I wear fashionable outfits… that are way too hot for this weather.

    This is such an awesome look! That striped top is so flattering and unique and can definitely be dressed up or down. I was the same way when I was younger….I used to put up with so much discomfort! Take wearing five inch heels to work every day for example…ouch!

    Love the pattern on the top and the little peak of print on the heels. Super cute. I think we all went through the discomfort to look good. Sometimes I find myself still doing it and then realizing I can’t handle walking anymore in shoes that aren’t comfortable. xo ~ Megan The Fashionista Momma
