Try this style trick … I promise it works!

Try this style trick … I promise it works!

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time trying on all kinds of outfit combos. I know, it sounds a little silly, but you know what? It’s kind of fun and I love sharing my finds with all of you! Try this style trick, because taking mirror selfies really does work! There’s something about looking at yourself in a mirror vs looking at a photo that helps you see more clearly whether your outfit makes sense.

When should you take a mirror selfie?

If you have an important event, or are packing for a trip, or just want to check your outfit before heading out … mirror selfies always help when it’s time to make final outfit decisions. And I must admit, until I started this little Instagram and blog journey, I NEVER dreamed I would be taking photos of myself ALL THE TIME 😂

These photos are not perfectly edited, and not perfectly posed or put together, but they’re definitely real life. A little messy, a little imperfect … which is sometimes how we feel in the morning! I try and take the photos when I’m showered and have makeup on because I feel better that way, and that helps the clothes look good too. After a selfie, I realize there are some combinations that don’t go well together, and a few things may even get returned after reviewing the photos. Try this style trick … I promise it works! Don’t worry, no one will see you 😉

#1  Paige coated denim + Ivory blazer + Ivory sweater

These coated jeans are really cool, and the color is amazing and different (I sized down and had mine hemmed). And I love them paired with ivory. This sweater is really cute and SO well-priced! It keeps selling out, so don’t wait. The Veronica Beard blazer is gorgeous, and you’ll love the bracelet length sleeves. Perfect for your beautiful jewelry arm stack 😉




#2  J.Crew cardigan + Mother denim + Aquatalia bootie

J.Crew cardigan | Anine Bing tee | Mother denim | Aquatalia boot | Balenciaga tote | Scarf

The J.Crew Juliette cardigan might be an all-time favorite (I’ve written about it a lot), and the camel color is a great shade. I love this cool black print scarf by AllSaints, it’s an easy way to add a little pattern and warmth at the same time! Currently the Anine Bing Paris tee is sold out, but it will come back, so submit your email to be notified.



#3 Red blouse + Red sweater | Faux leather pants


Left: $79 cashmere sweater | Faux leather pants | Schutz sandals | Pearl bracelet | Anthropologie wine glass | Right: Alice & Olivia blouse | Pointed toe boot | Michele watch | YSL bag

I’m loving red more than ever right now, and these two best-sellers are really easy to wear! This $79 cashmere sweater is the one I’ve been going on and on about (check out this post to read more). Alice & Olivia has some of the prettiest pieces right now — notice the sleeve detail on this one!



#4  Faux leather blazer + Pointy toe boot

The Blank NYC faux leather blazer is a good one — the version I’m wearing above has a sheen to it, it almost looks like velvet. It’s well-priced and would look amazing paired with a silk cami, jeans and party shoes. This blazer will help you make many different outfits, and it’s super flattering too.



#5  Alice and Olivia green sweater

This pretty sweater was featured in last months mirror selfie roundup and it quickly sold out from Nordstrom, but today, I happened to notice it here!



#6  Veronica Beard blazer + Faux leather dickey

Veronica Beard blazer | Mother denim | Faux leather hoodie dickey | Aquatalia boot | Anine Bing tee

Love this blazer so much, and it works easily with distressed denim and boots. It runs a little roomy, so I suggest going down a size if you’re in-between two. The Aquatalia weatherproof boots are faves. I wore mine all day today — it was pouring here in Portland and my feet stayed dry!



#7  Rag & Bone blazer + Coated denim + Mansur Gavriel bag

Rag & Bone blazer | Coated denim | Schutz embellished heel sandals | Green bag

This blazer is a favorite purchase this season. It’s so comfy – feels like a sweater, but it’s polished like a blazer. Style trick: wear with everything from sneakers, boots to strappy sandals. Runs TTS.



#8  Faux leather puffer

Left: BB Dakota faux leather puffer | Grey hoodie | Similar jeans | Vince Camuto boots | Right: Last years BB Dakota puffer | Lululemon Align leggings

This BB Dakota faux leather puffer is such a deal, and it’s the perfect way to try out a trend but not invest too much money. Both colors are amazing. Style trick: I’d layer a hoodie under for extra warmth (and a cool-girl look) and wear clogs, sneakers or boots — so cute!



#9  Silk sweater and Mother denim

Sweater | Frame coated denim | Schutz sandal

This sweater is so elegant, and you all asked many questions about the sleeve length (which was way too long for me). The tailor did a wonderful job of shortening the sleeves from the shoulder. And, you’ll wear it through the rest of fall and into the holidays — it’s that good!



#10  Vince blouse + Frame coated denim + Green bag

Vince blouse | Coated denim | Schutz party shoes | Mansur Gavriel bag

I’ve talked so much about this Vince silk blouse — I’ve had mine for several seasons. It always works … for business, casual lunch or a night out — this is a good one. For reference, I’m wearing a small. This one runs a little on the slim side!



#11  Vince slipdress + Vince cardigan

Vince cardigan | Vince slipdress | Zara shoes

Ohhh how I love this Vince slipdress. I can’t think of a more versatile dress! Also, I’m often asked about undergarments — yes I wear Spanx (!!) and the Wacoal Red Carpet bra is the best strapless around. And, I have never worn this dress alone — always with something over it, like a cashmere sweater over the shoulders or a leather jacket. In addition, this gorgeous all cashmere cardigan by Vince is a great option. This is an incredible sweater!



#12  Denim jacket +  Coated denim

Fidelity denim jacket | Frame coated denim | Zara shoes | YSL puffer bag

I like this dark wash denim jacket and at first I wasn’t quite sure how to wear it, but decided to try a black/blue combo mixed with a neutral. I love this combination so much that I used the outfit for a photo shoot!
