ttF Fashion Staples Series Outfit #3: March Stripes

ttF Fashion Staples Series Outfit #2: March Stripes

March is an incredibly busy month. There’s the Oscars, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and my birthday. Plus, it’s the end of fall and the beginning of spring. So transitional pieces were a must. Here’s the breakdown of the 6 Fashion Staples I’ll be wearing at least 6 Different times for the next 31 days:

1. Red Lips (Laura Mercier True Red Lip Pencil)
I’ve been incredibly busy recently and haven’t had as much time to get ready as I usually do. A red lip instantly dresses up any outfit and means you don’t have to worry about painting the rest of your face.

2. Statement Collar Necklace (Jimmy Choo for H&M)
After receiving copious compliments on this necklace at Marchesa’s pre-Oscar party I decided I needed to wear the jewelry more. Let’s see if I get as many accolades as I did in February.

3. Tan Blazer (Theory Blazer)
A black blazer is the ultimate basic but a lighter color helps you transition into warmer months.

4. Striped Long-Sleeve Shirt (PH8)
Black and white horizontal stripes have been all the rage for a while now. I love the French feel they have and they’re easily dressed up and down.

5. Black Cigarette Pants (Forever 21)
They were Audrey Hepubrun’s signature when she wasn’t wearing a LBD. Need I say more?

6. Nude Pumps (Steve Madden)
I’ve written about and worn Steve Madden’s Trinitie pumps ($79.95) on ThinkThruFashion more time than I can count. They’re not the most comfortable shoes in the world but I yet to find 4.5-inch heels that are. They look just like the Brian Atwood platforms every celeb has but cost a fraction of the price. While I have them in a few different colors, nude (or blush as it’s called on the site) is my favorite because it lengthens the leg.
