If there’s one fashion rule that every woman should abide by, it’s that you should always have a little black dress on deck.  It is such a classic look and so versatile, depending on your choice of accessories.

For this segment, I chose to play the opposite card, starting with the contrast of black and white.

Forget the boring pant suits that aren’t always flattering.  With this white blazer, this little black dress is perfect for a day at the office and everyone is sure to know that you mean business!

When the nightlife comes alive, ditch the blazer, and uncover the sassy black dress beneath. You’ll have a brand new look on your hands that is sure to make you the life of the party!

In order to spice things up, add a pop of color to your look, like this embroidered clutch.  With a touch of neon, you’ll be the wildcard that keeps the onlookers guessing.

As the age-old saying goes, opposites attract.  And this sassy business combination is no exception.

Whatever opposites you find yourselves attracted to, as always, Liv Fashionably!

I know it’s been quite some time since Carrie and I have combined powers and passions, but I am so grateful that she and I were able to reunite our talents and once again be the dynamic duo we were before the whole “fashion blog hiatus” commenced.

Since the last post, so much has changed and so many new variables have sprung up in my life. However, one variable I have been able to rely on most through the ups and downs during my first year of college has been my love for fashion and the friends within my closet doors!

During my first year, I’ve learned the importance of setting yourself a part from the crowd, as well as staying steadfast in your beliefs.  Since I was a little girl, I’ve always been told, “Liv, stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything!”

Lucky for me, I’ve learned to stand firm in whatever my choice of shoes is for the day, whether it’s a pair of heels, flats, or in this case boots! It’s always a plus to be fashionable while standing your ground right?

Since the last post, I’ve also learned that boutiques tend to have the greatest treasures!  Some are hit or miss, but the Brinkley Hilton Boutique of Jacksonville is an absolute hit! I ran across this romper and thought it was the perfect combination of small town girl meets uber chic. The pattern found on the shoulders is the perfect contrast of carefree trendiness to the rest of the piece being covered in a whimsical lace.

As for accessories, since most of this outfit is centered around tans and browns, we all know I must default to gold accents! No matter how chic, small town or whimsical your outfit may be, gold is a timeless addition to any look!

Take some time to start adventuring into your own small-town boutiques, and see what treasures you stumble upon!

Wherever you discover your hidden treasures, as always, Liv Fashionably!
