Sunday Stripes & Bows

Hello fabulous people! SO Glad that you all came back to Allyssa K. Lifestyle!

This was a spontaneous outfit! Nowadays, I have to work almost everyday, it seems. So, I miss church quite often, but this Sunday I was going to be there! Naturally, I wanted to look nice and do something special, like make something, but I didn’t have time. So, Saturday after work, I went to H&M and found nothing, but as I was walking out a unique item caught my eye. It was weird because I never look in that section, EVER! Its the trendy section that usually has a lot of inauthentic knockoffs, odd sayings and pictures and crazy prints. But GLORY TO GOD this was waiting on me! Let’s get into this look!

No. More sad than that is that fact that I wanted to make this shirt about 2 months ago, but was caught up in other orders I had to fill. Now, can I still make it? Yes, but I doubt its going to happen any time soon. Nonetheless, I still look nice lol

I think its pretty obvious why I bought this top! I mean, how gorgeous?! and a bow, too?? Its so extra and so me!

I chose to pair this elaborate top with the most simple bottom, a black skirt. Black acts as a background to the pop of red on top. The fact that it is a pencil skirt elongates my body and shapes it well. Also, since my blouse is loose, my skirt can be fitted. Loose on the top and fitted on the bottom is a staple in my closet! Tight enough to show you’re a woman, but loose enough to show you’re a lady.


Accessories

This red Dooney & Burke Zip Zip Satchel from the Saffiano Collection was a birthday gift to myself. It is a wonderful fall transition piece. These black, Shoe Dazzle heels are a sophisticated staple in my closet as well. These fun earrings are the black, 4-layer austin earrings from Charming Charlie and the shades are from there as well.

Style Tip: Try a simple outfit with ONE fun or whimsical accessory!

Thanks again for visiting my blog you guys!

Love & peace to all God’s people,

Allyssa K. Blair
