Don't stash your sheer blouses in the winter; just top them with a warm biker jacket to cut their sweetness.

The Ultimate Fashion Experience to benefit at-risk youth is tomorrow, and today I drew inspiration from a gorgeous sheer dress from the 2012 Army Collection of one of the designers featured in the show, Antonella Bella.

Since we are having an (albeit rare) cold spell right now, I decided to forgo the dress and instead chose this soft-colored, billowy sheer floral blouse. Because I generally find florals to be a bit too “sweet” for me, I went in the opposite direction with the rest of my outfit–cargo skinnies, riding boots, and a leather moto jacket.

Scarves are THIS easy!

Adding a scarf in the same color family as your jacket is an easy, sophisticated way to add some depth to your outfit.

Add a dose of femininity to a boxy jacket by adding a frilly, lacy scarf.

I love pairing a bright color with navy, and this green pashmina is a warm alternative to a trench on Florida fall days. The concept could just as easily work with red, raspberry pink, hot pink, bright yellow, or turquoise.

It’s a Date!

 

Make a blazer sexy by pairing it with a sheer lace top for date night.

Rachael bought this top during her visit, and I was so excited to put it on the blog that we forgot to remove the sales tag!  Oops!

Symphonic Situation

A favorite Lakeland pasttime is attending an Imperial Symphony Orchestra concert, but the theatre can be chilly at times.

A blazer sharpens up Rachael’s feminine dress and effortlessly transitions from office to opus.
