Dress from Dad’s Primitive

August is always a very exciting month for me when it comes to fashion. We still have a few warmer months left before fall but we can start buying pieces that are relevant now and can transition into fall easily. I partnered with Dad’s Primitive Workbench to illustrate how simple it can be.

Faux leather Jacket and Dress from Dad’s Primitive

Take for instance this cute midi-dress. I paired a strappy fuschia heel that is complimentary to the olive green. I then layered it with a faux leather jacket to help it easily transform into fall and give an edgier look. Throw on some cute booties or a pointy toe flat and your set for the cooler days.

Next up is this fun vertical striped wrap dress. The bell sleeve gives it an extra detail to flaunt and is lightweight to wear in the evenings now and great to wear during the day in the fall.

Kimono and Jeans from Dad’s Primitive

Then POOF! This kimono is actually the wrap dress in the previous picture. I had to pair it with my band tee because it was the perfect match. Want to wear it now to an outdoor concert? Throw on some shorts and you’ve got festival wear!

For this next look I’m going to break it down to show how simple styling can be.

Step 1: Pair midi-skirt with a basic tee.

Step 2: Add a fun heel to jazz it up a bit.

Step 3: Add a fun accessory like this headband.

Step 4: Layer it with a faux leather jacket to really elevate this look.

Skirt and jacket from Dad’s Primitive

Here’s the finished look. The leopard print headband brings in mixing patterns easily and pairs nicely with the gold and black. Accessorizing doesn’t always mean having to use jewelry.

Want to go casual? I wore my favorite black and white sweatshirt with a pair of coordinating sneakers. Want to add an additional accessory? Try adding a hat to mix it up!

Remember, if you shop the boutique at Dad’s Primitive Workbench it’s always buy one get one 1/2 off. If you use my code:RANDOMOSITY740 you’ll get an additional 10% off!

Happy shopping! Also, if you haven’t seen any of my recent posts, I’m offering free style consultations and a chance to win a closet detox with me for the month of August. I’m available both virtually or in-person! Book here now to start the free consultation.

Sweater Haul-Get Ready Ladies!

fashion

FDE54E38-8BCE-4DE8-8A3F-8233B8135C3E

I don’t know about you but I love me some cozy sweaters but sometimes people get stuck on how to wear them in a non-typical way.  For instance, for this first look I am wearing two tops from Dad’s Primitive Workbench in Marietta, Ohio.  I love this shop’s selections of sweaters because they are unique, comfortable and versatile.  This crop plaid button-down paired with my distressed sweater provides an edgy look but also  warmth because of the layers.  This crop plaid piece is so great and I can’t wait to wear it after the baby bump is gone and rock it all buttoned up.  I also love the agate necklace to add a special piece of jewelry.

D684FE91-5FB0-4069-8363-BCEEC61CB653

Here’s a side-view to show off some more of the plaid top.  I also paired it with earrings from the same place.  In fact, everything in this post that I mention is from Dad’s Primitive Workbench!  With this pose you get a nice view of Baby Sawyer too 😉

D4A9940F-B84A-4322-AD5C-D988A274E0C4

As you know I adore accessories and think they truly help complete a look.  In case you don’t notice some of the jewelry I am wearing with these looks, here’s a close-up for you.   I didn’t rock the Mama Bear earrings but couldn’t NOT feature them because I think they are so darn cute!

E4F48C62-A1C9-42B2-A99F-EC7BAE378EAB

If you’ve spoken to me this season I keep talking about how much I love the chenille fabric for sweaters because I feel like a swaddled up baby.  And then when you pair it with a blanket scarf? Psh!  Forget about it.  You’ll find me in random corners of rooms cozied up taking a nap! LOL. But in all seriousness, this look would be super cute for casual Christmas parties.

948A08D3-D06F-4950-BBB9-A8DBA604253C

This sweater is a beautiful royal purple which is a gorgeous hue but not one that I personally gravitate towards until this time around.  And are you kidding me with this beautiful orange scarf?  The mixture of textures is my favorite.

186A68E4-A63C-4CB8-9D8E-4FC6FB95ED450745B106-326B-472F-BE00-DF3C59DBFB7F

Now this next cutie is my favorite fall color and I love the fringe detail.  The neckline is perfect because it’s not quite a mock turtleneck but it wraps around your neck to provide more warmth.  I also love it paired with leopard print.

919EC229-DE1E-4211-A542-527B7E0906F5

And you know I can’t resist mixing some more patterns 🙂

226F63FA-2BDB-4FED-810C-3A8F1CF33AF5

Lastly, this green number is one of the softest fabrics yet.  I could sleep in this one quite easily too (definitely a tie between the chenille sweater and this one for softness).  You could belt this look with a braided belt if you wanted to, but I actually liked the looseness of it. The length is typically something I wouldn’t go for because of my lack of height (being only 5’3″) but I love it with my tall boots.  The print on the boots gives the eye something new to concentrate on but is still complimentary to the look.

If you don’t already know my posts for Dad’s Primitive Workbench are sponsored which means that you get a coupon code to use at the shop!!  There’s always a Buy One Get One 50% off for the boutique shop items but when you give the code: Randomosity 740 you will receive an extra 10% off on top of that!  Perfect timing for the holidays and dropping temps.

Which sweater was your favorite?

MOV Fashion Hop 2018

Journey

FBCB4FA5-F466-4207-8818-4E9BA04513C0

Last Saturday a really cool thing happened.  I hosted my first fashion event here in the Mid-Ohio Valley.  I called it MOV Fashion Hop.  The purpose of this event was to share two of my passions with the area; fashion and the options we have locally as far as shopping small businesses.  I love when I have the opportunity to promote fellow entrepreneurs.  This also gave me the chance to demonstrate any styling advice I can provide to clients for a personal wardrobing consultation such as personal shopping, curating one’s own style, coordinating clothing for group photos, or anything else along the wardrobe spectrum.

I mentioned that my passion was fashion, but it means so much more than the vain connotation that can come with it.  I love making people feel confident and that is what fashion does for me.  Many times we get in style ruts or think we can’t wear or “pull-off” certain styles because of our age or the area we live in, “we live in a small town, I would look silly wearing that HERE!”  I’ve heard it all.  I always like to refer to my next statement as “the psychology of fashion.”  We get inside our own heads and create this doubt, or lack of self-worth when we are shopping for clothing.  Just because we live in a small town doesn’t mean we have to stick to wearing a certain style of clothing and put ourselves in a made-up box.

Also, Mama Bears (yes, I’m talking to you)  you work super hard on making sure you’re taking care of your family and that is amazing and kudos to you!  But don’t forget to celebrate yourself and remember to allow yourself to feel beautiful and confident. I can speak from experience, especially with another one on the way.  I care about fashion because of the way it makes me feel.  I HATE not feeling good about myself so I take the extra time in the morning to take care of me; coordinate an outfit, do my make-up and curl or straighten my hair.  Do I wake up earlier? Yes, because it’s worth it to me.  Do I think everyone should feel this way?  No, but if you feel crappy about yourself when you look at other women, then I highly recommend taking the time but only if it’s for YOU.  If you don’t care about fashion, that’s okay but I’m assuming you at least care a little since you’re reading my blog.  I highly doubt it’s my mediocre writing skills that draws you in (LOL).

294CFB93-0534-4E9F-A463-2EE13D1985DE

The next images that I’m sharing are from MOV Fashion Hop.  This shows you a glimpse of what I can teach you personally, amongst other things.  These are still images of videos that were taken during the event.  If you’re interested in watching you can view them here.

In each of the videos I’m teaching different ways to wear things.  In Peyton & Peppy Boutique I showed how to wear a flutter sleeve and mix different, unexpected tones to create a polished look for a day-to-night look.  When we went into Schafer Leather I went over how to wear ponchos and capes along with not being afraid to wear a hat.  I can’t get over how many people feel silly wearing a hat simply because of where we live.  Be bold and go for it! 🙂

8DE8C7F6-CFD2-4810-A2A9-C82B3253E36C

At Wit & Whimzy I taught how to accessorize and layer jewelry with neutral tones by using clothing from Sabela Chic.  Another lesson was sharing how to mix patterns in a subtle way while I was in Emleigh’s and Mama B’s.

281FE18B-71C6-492A-BC16-0E3AB6ADFC5C

While in Sugar Maple Boutique I shared my love of leopard print, my favorite neutral pattern.  I also demonstrated how to wear a different style pant along with a vest that had fun colors and how to pair it with a less obvious choice for a pant.  Next up was Teri Ann’s, a staple fashion destination here in Marietta.  I taught how to wear a printed pant and pairing the perfect top and layering piece along with not worrying about getting the perfect match of colors as long as things blend nicely.

F1DD089C-519F-428B-833E-A99687AC51AE

Lastly, we ended our tour at Dad’s Primitive Workbench which is one of my favorite places to find unexpected fashion pieces.  I taught how it’s okay to kick outdated fashion rules to the curb like “not mixing blue and black.”  It’s perfectly acceptable to do so as long as you pair the right things together.

I hope if you didn’t get a chance to attend this year’s MOV Fashion Hop that you get to next time.  I plan on doing this every fall season but people have already asked me to do it again in the springtime, so who knows?  Stay tuned and make sure and follow me on my facebook page so you can watch for other Ran.dom.o.si.ty 7.4.0 events! Also, if you’re interested in my personal wardrobe consultations, hit me up!

FALL-ing in Love

fashion

Okay, so the weather is still hot but we are officially seeing fall trends in the stores and the sale sections for summer are dwindling down.  I absolutely adore fall; give me all the layering pieces!  I collaborated with Dad’s Primitive Workbench to share some of my favorite looks for fall and a few tips to share for the transitioning weather.

BC7EB816-964D-4AD4-8438-FBEBA1E2E03D

Pants and Top from Dad’s Primitive

For this look I wanted to show you how to wear it now.  These teal pants with accent colored stripes blend perfectly with this pumpkin colored tank. In order to transition to fall all you’ll need to do is throw on a jean jacket.

Next, I’m showing three ways to wear this cute little maxi dress.  Now this dress is PERFECT for all those expectant mothers like me or ladies that just want a comfy maxi dress.  You could also belt this look too or combine the scarf with the jacket for an extra layered look. Speaking of scarves, I have always been a fan of blanket scarves and this one here has a beautiful array of colors for fall.  I am always so cold in the cooler months and scarves like these are my best friend because they are nice and “snuggly wuggly’ as me and my daughter would say (this dress and scarf are also available in other colors).

Now this next top comes in two colors but this one was my favorite because of the color combo.  I love a mustard color for fall.  I also love any reason to wear my fedora 🙂  You can fully tuck this shirt, front-tuck it or just leave it out.  Me?  I will front tuck till the baby bump doesn’t allow it anymore ha ha!  I also love this jean jacket because it’s not a typical jean jacket due to the length along with the distressed detail.  Both of these are super cute for fall.  If you want to wear the shirt now, you could wear it with shorts and sandals or heels.

Lastly, I am in love with this distressed top!  It’s so soft and I love how the holes create an edgy, rocker look.  And of course with a rocker vibe I threw on my faux leather jacket.  This is such an easy top to wear and is great for just about anything from running errands or going out.  I mean how cute would this top be with a faux leather skirt paired with something like these heels or booties for a night out!?  And hello?  I LOVE wooden jewelry and these earrings are marvelous.  The tones make it easy to wear with so many things!

Pep Up Your Step with Transitional Pieces

Top and accessories from Peyton & Peppy Boutique

One of the perks of being a local fashion blogger is getting a preview of some of the upcoming season’s assortment of clothing to places like Peyton & Peppy Boutique.  This post is all about shopping for pieces that can easily transition into, dare I say it? Fall!  But don’t worry.  I am not trying to wish the summer away, just simply giving you a current and sneak peek into Peyton & Peppy’s clothing line.  My first two looks are from her current line.  The above image features their jewelry, clutch and a top.  This blue and white slouchy shirt is perfect to wear now with white shorts and heels or in the fall with black pants and pumps to wear to the office.  This image I chose to make it seasonally appropriate for the office by wearing those same mentioned black pants with a strappy heel.

Top, accessories and shoes from Peyton & Peppy Boutique

This next image shows a pair of sandals, jewelry and top from the current line as well.  First and foremost, these shoes are to die for! Super comfortable and ridiculously cute!  I love the color of this top and the hand of the fabric is very nice.  I love the subtle ruffle sleeve and then their rose gold bar necklace.  I paired this top with white pants to show a great “now look.”  The obvious way to pair this is with jeans but as you know I like to show a less obvious way to wear it.  This is a great beach look on a cooler evening and is casual yet dressy enough for a sit-down dinner.  When fall roles around you could layer this with a leather jacket and heavy necklaces and boots.

EC12CDD1-77CE-47D1-969F-B5C64728F471

Now, moving on to some of the fall product.  Here I am wearing a top that is a beautiful rust color with cinched sides to bring a flattering look to the waistline.  I also love how this creates room for my growing baby bump!  In fact, everything I am sharing in this post is perfect for early maternity wear, at least for me it has been.  So to all those expectant mama’s don’t think you have to stick with maternity clothes the entire pregnancy.  I paired it with the same white pants as the previous image because it shows a way to wear it now.

Top, jewelry and shoes from Peyton & Peppy Boutique

This next top is ADORABLE!  I love how I can transition it into a fall business look by throwing on a cape blazer but keep it relevant to summer by pairing those cute sandals from before.  It even looks better without the cape blazer.  The exposed back is a delightful surprise and helps bring a bit of sexiness for a date after work.  The necklace coordinated perfectly with all of the pleasant earth tones within it.  The only thing you need to change for this look to transition into legit fall is by switching out the shoes to a pair of booties. I loved pairing black with it because of the warm color blocking.  Black brings in the drama.  Those same white pants I’ve worn would work right now too.

010DE606-E3E8-47D8-BEE5-6CFFAD4CB3C8

Now we all know that I am always encouraging my followers to think outside the box and experiment with things you don’t typically gravitate towards.  Well, here is a prime example of me practicing what I preach.  This corn maize sweater is spectacular but not my typical color that I feel confident in because of my skin-tone and hair color.  But like I have said before, I believe you can wear just about any color when paired with the right accessories.  For instance, I paired this turquoise statement necklace to bring a brighter color near my face.  I also wore a dark gray denim to bring contrast to the look.  And for an element of surprise I decided to wear fuchsia heels.  I now feel more confident in this color because I have strategically styled it to make it work for me.  This top is by far the softest article of clothing I have ever had on my body.  NO JOKE!

5823D61E-8D97-41EB-A453-AEDD7FCCA033

This last top from Peyton & Peppy was one that I was drawn to due to it’s uniqueness.  It’s an oversized button-down I felt would be a challenge for people to know how to wear.  This top could easily look too baggy if it isn’t styled properly.  This is one of those pieces that you play around with to fit your own body-type in a way that you find flattering.  I chose to show it tied in the middle at the waist because I am only 5’3″ and if I left it all one length it would probably swallow me whole.  But I love how adding the tie helps lengthen my legs and create interest.  I also left it a little more unbuttoned than I typically would to give it a more feminine feel since it is oversized.  I also loved pairing my distressed denim to bring some edginess as well as my fuchsia shoes again to add a hint of color.  Don’t be afraid to add an accent color to warm, neutral tones too.

The owner of Peyton & Peppy, Stephanie has been such a pleasure to work with when I collaborate with her.  She really caters to any need while shopping in her store.  She is passionate about the product that she selects for her inviting boutique.  I especially love the “live” videos she does on facebook to show new products.  It really helps those who can’t visualize certain items on themselves to see how a product looks on.  It also helps save the customer time if they see something they like because they know exactly what they are shopping for when they walk through the door.  Make sure and watch for the new fall line to launch and stop in to shop seasonally appropriate products now!

A Hidden Gem

fashion

IMG_6990[1]

Top, earrings and pants from Dad’s Primitive Workbench

Have you ever walked down Front Street in Marietta, Ohio and come across a storefront with the name, Dad’s Primitive Workbench?  I’m personally not into primitive décor so I never really paid a lot of attention to the clothing that was featured in the window.  It wasn’t until a friend of mine told me about the cute styles that were offered inside that I decided to walk in and check it out myself.

IMG_6995[1]

Bottoms and earrings from Dad’s Primitive Workbench

There are trendy pieces that are versatile especially for my growing tummy.  Most of the clothing I’ve been drawn to have a bohemian, slouchy feel which works out well for me trying to not have to purchase many maternity clothes this pregnancy. The colors are thoughtful and the assortment flows nicely.  Not only is the clothing bright and cheerful but so is Charlie, the owner of this hidden gem.

Charlie also seems to really pick up on people’s styles too.  When I walk in the store he knows exactly what I am going to be drawn to and let me tell you something, not many people have that ability because I am pretty unpredictable with some of the things I like sometimes.

IMG_6991[1]

There are a few things that you should know about this special shop, and that is that Charlie always offers buy one get one half off on his clothing and he offers style boxes that he sends out once a month to customers that are interested.  It’s called the, DPW Style Box for $49.95/ month and you get 4 curated pieces inside. Another fun fact is that he offers plus-size styles.

IMG_6813

Did I mention he offers cute accessories like these?  Yea, he does!  I hope you learned something new about a local business and will check out the fashions Dad’s Primitive Workbench has to offer.  And make sure and tell Charlie I said hello or go like and follow his social media pages;

Accessorizing: It Makes a Difference😘

fashion

0DF80DD9-3924-447C-9B99-95985DF747AA

Happy Hump Day readers! Today I decided to show you how accessories can make a difference with your look. I chose this fun jumpsuit to use as my muse. I visited six different local shops in Marietta, Ohio today to illustrate two things.

1. The obvious. Show you how I changed up my looks.

2. Show you what local resources you have in the MOV. In my opinion, there’s something special about shopping small businesses. If you never really do, this is me urging you to do so…like now. Seriously, go tomorrow!😁

This first look was created by accessories from Twisted Sisters Boutique. The necklace and purse are made from coconut shells! How cool is that?! I love the 70’s vibe it gives it. I feel like I should be on an episode of, Three’s Company (🎶Come on knock on our doooooor🎶)😂.

671B96D5-B337-437A-98D6-6C3F294BB1D9

Next stop was Emleigh and Mama B’s. I decided to use a layering piece by utilizing this cute floral top. I love the dark contrast and drama it brings. This is definitely a “look at me” look. My fedora helped tie in the rest of the look along with her dark feather earrings and stacked bracelets also found inside her shop.

B047DC00-DB07-407B-9ABD-25280BEBA7E3

Now for Wit & Whimzy. I can always find fun and whimsical accessories here. I wanted to add more color so I chose multi-colored items. The tassel earrings and hot pink pendant necklace were the perfect accent colors to brighten up this look. I loved adding the wristlet for more color and my infamous mixing of patterns❤️

8DABCFE2-39F2-4894-97BD-75D2CB8E8DE1

As I continued on my jaunt down Front Street I stopped in Sugar Maple Boutique and utilized this oversized denim jacket to show a more casual look that you could wear on a cooler summer evening. I added the fuschia bag and fun gray statement earrings with a gold medallion necklace. It’s fun to play with other colors. Gray, green, pink and gold…it’s fun!

EFA89F5D-F2D8-4EEB-8502-32E55AF276D2

We’re gettkng closer to the end of Front Street which led me to my next stop at Dad’s Primitive Workbench. Here I decided to create a cute beach look. Super casual and laid back. I paired a yellow “sunset chasin’” top to add a different color along with a beaded long necklace that helped bring out some of the blue  in the jumper. Simple and effortless 👌🏻

525D8D9B-053F-4CA1-8F6D-9489ADE0FB3B

My last stop of the day was at Teri Ann’s.  She has this adorable layering piece that was perfect for the summer. The mesh look keeps it breathable AND it’s versatile! There are multiple ways to wear this piece so make sure to stop in and check it out. I saw it also came in turquoise and black! And how fun is this clutch? I’m going to call it the mermaid clutch because it reminds me of a mermaid tail with the different colors it has in it. I also paired the look with this delicate “X and O” necklace that has a small turquoise stone next to it. Simple and chic!

Well, thanks for “walking” along with me to search for some really great accessories for this jumpsuit. Remember, just because it’s a one- piece doesn’t mean you can’t wear something over top of it. Like I always say, have fun and think outside the box!

Now, tell me…which look was your favorite?!

Get it Girl!

fashion

C0936BBD-C193-4F45-B4EA-D81A1B35D171

I love pairing the unexpected. Take for instance this top. It would be easy for me to pair this with white pants or denim.

B69596A1-2FBB-4C11-965B-FEE0F93083E5

I chose red pants to bring out more color. I added my black leather jacket and black flats to bring some edginess and drama to the look.

371CD74C-155C-4766-B832-6C4313A6B744

Keep in mind when I mention other ways to “edge things up” it’s just to show you a more unique way of pairing things and seeing things differently. There’s nothing wrong with going with the instinctual item, but don’t forget to challenge yourself and have fun! As my daughter and I say all the time while dancing around and raising the roof, “Oh yea! Get it girl!” 😂

A Sisterhood Event

Journey

91975B4F-A196-44EA-BEAD-C8737C632B3B

I think us ladies can all agree that life can be very stressful. Some of you may be mothers, wives, business owners, work professionals, college students, or maybe all of the above. Well this weekend there’s an amazing retreat that’s taking place at The Betsey Mills Club in Marietta, Ohio. It’s called the MOV Red Tent.

6F771D05-EB95-4204-8C4E-CFD7166C3974

Right about now each trade member is planning on how they will be setting up their tents and anxiously awaiting to share things with women like us. I had the pleasure of having a Fashion Tent the first year and really enjoyed myself. Something about sharing your passion with others is a great feeling especially when you see an attendee discover that in them too!

During the MOV Red Tent experience I was introduced to what all is offered to us ladies in the MOV. There’s yoga of all sorts, natural remedies, dance, drumming, painting, henna, learning about self-love and how to express it, and so many other things that help you celebrate being a woman.

809CC89A-D303-4BC4-8168-A39332A3A39C

There’s so much to say about the MOV Red Tent, and the best way for me to share more with you is for you to click this link and see the list of activities and schedules.

I like to think of being a woman as being part of a sisterhood. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if every woman viewed it that way? You know, like we’re all in this whole thing called life together and that it’s not always easy? Well I can tell you that the women that are involved in this event feel the same way.  They will assure you that you’re not alone and if you need a friend this is the perfect event to find one! So step outside your comfort zone and try something new to relax and learn all about self-care in many ways.

Maybe I’ll see you there?

Your Faithful Dreamer,

Courtney

 

The Tale of the Cable Knit Sweater

fashion

I love a good cable knit sweater. But how many different ways can you style it? Here’s a few images to inspire you to think outside the whole jeans and sweater bubble.  The top images are the no-brainer way to wear it. But my gray, heavily distressed denim helps make it look less preppy and edges it up a tick. I also loved pairing cognac colored shoes to add some warmth to the look.

F4EEF6AA-D64D-48A8-91CB-ACE21DDCDD23

The next image I just added a black blazer to jazz it up. You could even pair a nice heel with this and switch to black pants for a more professional look.

Here I switched out my shoes to leopard flats and wore a lightweight khaki jacket. A more fun and casual look. I even switched up my hair-do for a more relaxed look.

Now I’ve styled it with a flannel, boyfriend style button-up top to add a different type of layer. I stuck with the leopard flats to show how you can mix patterns in a more subtle way. I also wore my glasses to give it a different vibe.

Lastly, I tied the flannel shirt around my waist and tossed my hair up in a messy pony tail for an easy, effortless look. I wore the same jewelry in every look to show that it works for all styles. The necklace is from Wit & Whimzy and it’s made by Chastina. A new favorite!
