A Fashion Story Red Hot Chili Pepper

Welcome to the first 2017 edition of A Fashion Story! I’m super excited about this year. 2017 promises to be the year of change, and I’m already seeing those events unfold.

On to the fun stuff! The outfit featured in this segment of A Fashion Story. I call this outfit the Red Hot Chill Pepper not because I’m a big fan of the band or even because of the color of the pants (well maybe the red pants had a little sway over the title) but because that’s the way I feel about my fashion sense and the way it has evolved throughout the years, especially since I had my kids. I’m on a roll! A red-hot pathway to my dreams as I trudge into 2017 like a ladyboss!

Feeling fearless and looking fierce, you’ll be ready to take on anything when decked out in this outfit! I most certainly felt that way. And did I mention how warm and comfy this outfit kept me? The key to pulling off both style and comfort during the winter months is to choose layers that vary in both material makeup and thickness. I wore a silky thermal by Hanes underneath the black Express sweater.

The leggings are by Charlotte Russe and the black suede boots allows me to tie the look together without going overboard. And the shawl sweater…Oh, how we love thee, right? These babies flew off Charlotte Russe’s racks. No worries, though. LiWBF’s got your back. We’ve added some gorgeous alternatives in the widget below. The shawl and necklace by Gorjana chosen by my Rocksbox stylist seals the deal. This outfit is red hot and ready to rock in 2017!

Have a great start to the new year everyone!
