B.Cannon Look Book

Can you believe January is almost over?! 

That's CRAZY.

Well, amidst my errand running, studying, friend visiting, lunching, and working... I have still managed to create new looks for your viewing pleasure. Not really-- haha-- I do it for my own pleasure. I just absolutely love styling myself {or others} ...But I hope you do enjoy my looks and maybe learn a little something, too ;) 

This was an errand running day, which concluded with a dinner date with my hubby at Bricks Pizza and Wine Bar! {LOVE that place.}

LOFT black and white tweed jacket
BCBGeneration woven blouse with blue/black/white abstract print
LOFT skinny jeans
Nine West over-the-knee black leather boots {Love 'em-- can't get enough!}
Banana Republic black, silk scarf
David Yurman cuff bracelets
Louis Vuitton bow bracelet
Earrings-- not clearly visible-- are chandelier style with dark blue crystals

Why it Works:
Color. Composition. Proportion. That's the magic formula here.
The palette is cool and collected with cobalt blue, black and white. The combination of textures, patterns, and prints gives this look a ton of depth, excitement, and contrast. It's not very visible in this poor quality photo, but the scarf actually has a black-on-black woven design that consists of several giant polka-dots. Especially in person, the different textures are really interesting. Additionally, the flow-y, delicate, chiffon-like top contrasted against the bulky tweed jacket is unexpectedly chic. Finally, the proportion is correct with high volume on top and sleek lines on the bottom-- which are made even more sleek with the tall, black, high heel boots. The earrings, although not fully visible at all times, offer just the right amount of sparkle that is eye catching when they are seen in the right light. In total, this look has a great balance of romantic and bold elements that combine to create a look that is super stylish.

Style Challenge: 
Try combining romantic and bold style elements to create your own chic look! {If you don't have a tweed jacket or blazer, it might be time to invest in one-- Be sure to choose something neutral that can be paired with countless looks!} Fashion is all about combining things that are unexpected, so don't hesitate to pair a romantic lace blouse with a bold blazer, a sweet chiffon top with distressed denim, or lovely pearls with weathered leather! Your options are limitless! Get to your closet right now and start exploring the possibilities :)

I'm stealing that blue shirt from you! LOVE! I finally bought some new items this weekend and so excited to be a little more stylish-altho I could still use some work in that area lol

I'm so happy to hear that, Ashlee!! I bet you always look stylish, but it doesn't hurt to freshen up your selection once in a while :)
