Samba into Fall :: Stripe Off Shoulder Balloon Sleeve Top + Tassel Earrings

Sunday, September 11, 2016 Simone - Your Style Architect 3 Comments

Hi everyone,

Indeed a sad day - the anniversary of 9/11. Been watching unreleased footage on TV all day and getting a little down for sure. Thoughts and prayers are with the families and victims affected by this tragedy.

For this post, here's my red, white and blue outfit to stand by the people of America and let them know we are with you on this sad day of remembrance. Pairing with this outfit is one of Fall's must-have accessory - the Tassel Earring.

Going out on a date night with my husband, this look was perfect for dinner and drinks.

Kept the rest of the outfit plain and simple so the top and tassel earrings would stand out and make a statement. Nude wedges and envelope clutch was the perfect combination to finish the look.

So in my last post, I was whinging a little about the hypocrisy of the human nature. To follow up on that comment - this last week, my eyes were opened even more to realise there is nothing I can do to change the way these people think and behave. I will not accept it, but I will also not let myself be pulled down by such primitive thinking and insecurities of others. These people lacking in confidence will never achieve much in life. Incessant whinging and moaning will get them nowhere and certainly not get them ahead in anything that they do. Hopefully they will realise it one day.

Back to the outfit, decking myself out in birthday pressies from lovely people in my life - earrings from a colleague, envelope clutch from an aunt and a pretty bracelet from a lovely couple.

Not forgetting to mention, these lovely Max Mara Wedges that was showcased in the Max Mara Preview Collection post ( check it out here & here).

Over the last week, I came across an online store - which had lovely pretty bags, accessories and outfits ( some similar to designer items) at a fraction of the price. As always, my motto of " Get The Look for Less" prevails and so here are some lovely items I identified on their online store which you may be interested in.

As we enter into Fall, I am looking forward to trend trousers and pants, and these flared cut offs are so cute!

A classic pair of black culottes would be a wardrobe essential.

I don't know about you, but I do love jumpsuits and this 2 piece jumpsuit is a classic.

A lovely oriental style Bomber Jacket is perfect for those cooler days coming up.

Spotted these designer inspired bags on their site which is simply too pretty not to consider for adding that extra touch to your outfit.
