OOTD: My Magna Carter Tour Look

What to wear to a concertFirst off…  Happy New Year lovelies!!!!  I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season! It’s so hard to believe that it’s 2014!!

What to wear to a concertAnyway, the new year is off to a great start!!!  I’m super relaxed after a long break from work (I go back tomorrow – ugh) and a break from online too (I missed you guys though)! I’ve got lots of exciting changes to come this year!  You’ll probably notice that the blog looks a little different today and that’s because I am going to be moving to a self hosted blog in the next day or so.  Once the transition is complete (by Tuesday or so), the blog should look pretty much the same.  This change will allow me a lot more flexibility with the blog.  For instance, it will be much easier for me to to host giveaways!  Yay! So, look for some pretty fun and exciting things coming up soon!

What to wear to a concertNow… on to today’s look!  I’ve always been a huge Jay Z fan!!  I’m talking way back in the day before Bey, before Magna Carta and before hanging with the Pres!  Yep… I’ve always loved Jay Z.  He is definitely one of the greatest lyricists of all time! But I had NEVER seen him in concert.  So, when I found out one of his stops on the Magna Carta Tour would be Charlotte… umm… you know I had to get tickets!

Jay Z CollageOf course he did not disappoint!!  The show was absolutely crazy!  We had great seats and the crowd was bananas! It was so live, it was ridiculous!!  Jay did a little bit of everything too…  oldies, new stuff, collabos and free style…  he did it all!  It was great!  I’m so glad that I went!

What to wear to a concertI decided to put this look together for the show!  My only mistake (and I knew this before I even walked out the door but I always convince myself that it will be ok.  Yeah, right.) was the shoes!  My feet were killing me by the end of the night!!!  BUT I had a great time and I looked good!  (Sometimes that’s all that counts!)

What I’m Wearing: Loft Blazer, Leopard Infinity Loop Scarf (Gifted by my sister in law — She received it as a gift and did not want it??!! Are you kidding me?!), Forever 21 Tank, Old Navy Rock Star Coated Jeans, Zara Metallic Heels, Express Clutch, Rose Gold Accessories

Where Am I: Ayrsley Speciality Shops and the Concert

Style Remix x Style Feature x Media Collabo

Animal Print Top Shop Cropped Top So, you can probably tell from the title that today’s post is going to be a mixed medley of topics!  Thought I’d share with you an outfit style remix, my current style feature on Eve’s Addiction and my recent collaboration with the Charlotte Observer.  Enjoy!

Style Remix

Animal Print Top Shop Cropped Top If you all recall, my last post was a fabulous style challenge with some of my blogger friends featuring our interpretation of animal print . The style challenge was so much fun!  I honestly can’t wait to do the next one.  But as with everything I do…  I always overthink!  So, when I was considering the look I wanted to feature, I just couldn’t quite decide on what look would be the best.  So…. I took 2 sets of photos!  Yes 2!! Ultimately I decided on the more chic look for the challenge itself but I still wanted to share my remixed version too – which is more casual.

Animal Print Top Shop Cropped Top I think the moral of this story is that (again) animal print is so versatile and completely a new neutral!  You can rock it so many ways for so many occasions and still look great!

Zara Boyfriend Jeans and Boots

Copy Cat Style Challenge: How Do You Rock Your Animal Print?

Copy Cat Challenge Animal Print Collage 2I am super excited to be collaborating on my first ever style challenge with some of my favorite and most fabulous blogger friends!! Each one of these ladies has such an amazing style esthetic so I knew this challenge would not only be fun but would give each of us a chance to showcase our unique fashion perspectives!!

In order (above – top then bottom, left to right), meet Alexandra from Rhymes with Fashion,  yours truly, Sophia from Stylishly in Love, Aracely from Mama Fashion Files, Annick from Bold Subtlety, and Karen from Your Stylist Karen.  Please take a moment to check out (and follow) their fabulous blogs!!  You will not be disappointed!

Topshop Animal Print Crop TopNow, for this style challenge, we decided to choose animal print as our theme.  One… because the animal print craze is still extremely hot right now but also because there are so many great ways that you can incorporate animal print into your look – regardless of your personal style!

Topshop Animal Print Crop TopOf course this isn’t the first time that you’ve seen me in animal print on the blog.  It is actually one of my favorite prints right now.  I have multiple pairs of animal print shoes, purses, tops, blazers and pants!!  The crazy thing is, in my mind, animal print has become the new neutral!  It is absolutely a perfect way to add a little edge to your look, yet, as you can see from the ladies above, it can be worn with so many different pieces and styled in so many different ways!!  You can’t ask for much better than that!
