Pairing two items with details together like this embellished sweater and plaid vest especially in the same color family, can really create an interesting, but not overdone outfit. Embellishments are one of my favorite elements on a piece of clothing. An embellished item can pair well with a solid or print making it versatile. And it really glams up even the most casual outfit. And you don't need to accessorize. The jewelry is already on the clothing!

So needless to say, I am a magpie when it comes to anything with embellishments on it. They really help me feel confident about an outfit. This Kate Spade sweater was one I found on thredUP last year and I love the fit, color (total sucker for anything navy), and of course the amazing embellishments! Now I have my eye on this light pink top, grey shoulder tee, grey skirt, or these metallic or floral flats!

  25. I'm with you about embellishments on my clothing---it's instant bling, so what's not to love??
    And I'm loving the whole dichotomy of bling with plaid vest--brilliant!! jodie

  29. Naturally I love a jeweled sweater, being a bit of a magpie myself, but the fact that it's Kate Spade and you found it at ThredUP makes it doubly better.

  41. You have styled this plaid vest super nice lately. I am in love with the KS embellished sweater. I bet it is very well-made. I bought one from Target a few months ago but so many of the embellishments fell off. I need to invest on a more expensive embellished sweater. Love the Joe Fresh blush tee and both gorgeous embellished Asos flats, that you linked.

    Welcome by and linkup with me tomorrow. The linkup will be open a day early. Thanks Laura. =) Happy April!

  48. I'm also a fan of embellished tops, love this one! I can't believe your weather still calls for sweaters and vests though. Mine have been put away for nearly a month!

  49. I do love the pairing of the same tone with the embellishment. Embellishing is a quick way to style your outfit.

  50. that sweater is still one of my faves of yours. love the addition of the plaid vest! happy wednesday!!

  51. I'm pretty much scared of embellishments, haha! So, of course, when I saw your outfit, my immediate reaction was, "I love that vest!" Which is sans embellishments ha! But super cute and something I would totally wear!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love embellishments as well. And I love how you paired this with the plaid. It's such a great combination! I'm also amazed at all the beautiful things you find from Threadup. I have to check out that site.
