Hi friends! Yesterday I introduced a brand new series here on Charmed By Camille where I take one piece and style it two ways. It kind of started because I would find myself not being able to choose between how I wanted to style an item for a shoot.
As a blogger, yes, I do I have a ton of clothing. But the reality is that I am also a real person. I absolutely outfit repeat and try to find new ways to wear something that’s already in my closet. So I decided, why not just show both looks? Why not pass the inspo on to you? If I love an item so much where I WANT to show you how to wear it more than one way, isn’t that a sign that maybe I should just actually do just that? Thus, this series was born and here we are!
If you missed yesterday’s post then let me just remind you that this series will be a back-to-back, two part blog post.
This is the second part of the puffy sleeves “one piece to ways” series. Today I’m sharing how to wear this puffy sleeves top from & Other Stories in a slightly fancier way than yesterday’s post. If you missed that post, click here.
This was actually the first way I thought to wear this puffy sleeves top. And in full disclosure, the model on the website 100% influenced me. She is wearing a very similar leather skirt to one I already owned, and I liked the simplicity of the outfit. (Here’s a more affordable version; here’s a faux leather option.) The skirt is simple, and technically so is the top, but the sleeves give is some structure. I also have come to love navy and blue together. A while back I used to think you couldn’t match navy and black. (I also though this about brown and black and now I’m all about it.) But I LOVE the two together. A navy top is a nice alternative to black, and the sheen in this blouse adds some dimension.
SHOP THE LOOK
Now of course, while I’m in LA in bare legs, most people need another layer at this point in the year seeing as it’s November. If I could add semi-sheer black tights to this look without sweating, I definitely would. So cute! But instead of tights, I wore my Celine sunglasses to shield my eyes from that every present SoCal sun. (Although as I type this I am happy to report it is 45 degrees outside and cloudy.)
I actually wore the same booties here as in yesterday’s post. These black, pointed toe sock booties by Jeffrey Campbell are highly versatile. I wanted to show that they look just as great with jeans as they do with a skirt. So, I paired them with both outfits. It’s pretty cool how you can have a couple of the same pieces as the foundation for a look, but still get a totally outcome vibe, don’t you think?
To top things off (literally) I added this adorable turban headband. Truthfully, hair accessories are always more of a last thought for me, but boy am I a sucker for these. Also, for you people out there having normal November weather: a turban headband can be swapped in a chic alternative to a beanie. It still keeps your ears relatively warm!
My earrings are mostly hidden, but with a turn of the head you can see a little gold bling here and there. They are by Brooklyn-based jeweler Sofia Ramsey. She has some pretty interesting pieces but I love the simplicity these. Specifically, I love how the hoop is perpendicular to your piercing rather than a traditional hoop that goes through it.
Which outfit do you like better, yesterday’s denim look or this one? If you have any pieces you need help styling, let me know in the comments. You can also DM me on Instagram or email me! I’m here to help.
