Valencia & Vine

So, way back in January…I made a New Years resolution to wear more color…it may have taken 7 months…but, the brand Valencia & Vine made it pretty simple.

If you don’t know about Valencia & Vine…let’s just say its a super relatable collection sold on Shopbop. They offer affordable, feminine pieces that are, no doubt, on trend. Think pretty dresses, blouses and separates that are versatile and functional.

With bright colors and tie-dye trends having more than a moment, it is no wonder that these styles are permeating into the fall season. As a mom of 3, sometimes I find it hard to wear color. For one, too much color can be difficult to style easily and effortlessly. Second, color can sometimes feel like ‘too much’ for everyday outfits.

Thus, when I saw this top, my initial thought was that there is no way I’d be able to style this top for more than a single look. However, I was wrong. The color is bright, but wearable. The material is comfortable and supportive. The style runs true-to-size and is super flattering, especially with a high-waited pant.

This mesh, turtleneck top is both bold and sporty. It can stand-out on its own for a sexy, cool look for a night out or for a casual, low-key get together with sneakers.

Throw a blazer over it and pair it with straight leg denim and booties and you can easily wear this colorful piece to work! I also loved the idea of styling this top with all black and adding one accent accessory (western belt) to give he entire look some edge.

It is pretty amazing how the look of one top can be changed in so many ways, to offer a variety of looks with the simple change of a shoe, addition of an accessory, or the style of denim.

If you are a follower of mine, you know how much I stress being able to create at least 3 looks with any new piece you are purchasing, or thinking about purchasing. When I can visualize multiple looks, I genuinely get excited to style and wear my new pieces.

Dress this top up with a straight leg style denim and nude pump to go out at night, or a distressed pair of skinny jeans and embellished hightop sneakers for an easy, casual outfit.

Thinking about a more conservative, classic look? No problem! Style this top with a relaxed black blazer and either straight leg denim and a nude bootie, or dark denim and a black bootie. To a more monochromatic look, add a distinct accessory, like a belt or statement earring.
