Piperlime – What’s Your Sign

My birthday is on Friday but I’m trying to ignore it. Obviously, I’m not doing a very good job since I decided to wear a dress that has a giant zodiac sign on it. I mean really. What was I thinking?! Leo’s usually LOVE to celebrate a birthday, none more than their own, though this year I’m feeling less inclined to “roar” about it. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good party, but I’d like to start counting my years backwards like Benjamin Button.

When deciding how to style these beautiful Jean-Michel Cazabat Elle pumps from Piperlime I wanted to go for a look that had a downtown vibe. Something that says “cool girl” but with a sexy edge. Last time I went for a preppy chic look which you can see here. With Elle providing all the sex appeal I could concentrate on the “cool girl” part. I’d been on the lookout for a t-shirt dress with a musical subject matter in mind. But with a looming birthday ahead, and an interest in astrology, I decided this one was going to be my new closet mate.

And what are your thoughts on the oversized jean jacket trend? I’ve been roped into loving it and thought it was a great addition to this look. You’ll continue to see oversized jackets this Fall and depending on the look you’re going for you may need to adjust your size. I choose not to go TOO big but this trend reminds me of playing dress up as a kid in my mom’s clothes. Did you do that too?

Plenty of bracelets and layered necklaces are a must with an outfit like this and keep the bag small to avoid too much fussiness. My recommendation? Do yourself a favor and grab Mr. One-Nighter from d’andrea handbags. You’ll use “him” day & night and this platinum color pairs well with anything! Most Leo’s rarely have trouble starting a conversation but in case you’re on the shy side, birthday or not, you can wear this with confidence realizing you won’t have to say a word. People will probably ask “What’s your sign?” but they’ll really want to know where you got your shoes ;).

XOXO
