Faux Suede for Summer

Putting together interesting combinations is all part of enjoying your clothing, especially if you are reinventing your style and making new discoveries.  I discovered this fun faux suede top at a vintage store last summer, and then was lucky enough to also find it on Amazon for you!  It is a flattering flow halter style top, but is not backless (I do recommend a strapless bra).  It is by the Andree by Unit brand which also has multiple flattering flow styles shown on Amazon.  When you land on this particular top, their name is highlighted in blue near the heading of the item that will take you to all of their listings.  Here is a link for the top:

I am barefooted to show you my “natural tan”, LOL, still loving my sunless tanner.  You have to be careful on your feet so it doesn’t get too intense, that skin is thinner and will tan differently from legs and arms; I put it on my feet three days in a row, then switched to about every third day now.  Big T commented that he thought my feet were “getting a little deep”, so I backed off to keep it real.  You can read more about the Jergens Tanner in my previous swimsuit post here.  I noticed that several of you have ordered the Amazon twin-pack deal, which is a good way to stay stocked on this great tanner, it was sold out in my local area a few times already.  Here is an easy shopping link to order yours:

You can read more about my Ann Taylor Kick Crop jeans in this previous post where I wore them as my travelling outfit to Blue Ridge.

Faux Suede with Red

A burst of red really works with this peachy-beige top and takes it up a notch from being a calm neutral; peachy tones work with most skin tones also.  The red necklace, earrings and sandals give it a chic balanced look that is not overdone.  I will be trying other accessory and shoe color combinations with it for completely different looks.  Adding a jacket, shrug, scarf, kimono or sweater will carry it from Spring through Fall.

I have had the red sandals for a couple of years, they are “Rayana” by Life Stride with light support.  I found similar styles for you on Amazon:

//Red Sandal #1//    //Red Sandal #2//

This Andree by Unit brand  Faux Suede Top is lined behind the upper layer that is a laser cut design.  The fabric is a lightweight synthetic suede that is soft and comfortable.    I really like how the cut work detail adds more texture to the outfit.  When I do not want to wear print, texture is the way to go for added interest without a lot of busy color pattern.

You can read about my necklace and gold wrapped wire bracelet in this previous post from our trip to Blue Ridge.  I found a similar red necklace and earring option for you here at Amazon.  By adding a gold chain to the red Amazon necklace, the look would be almost identical.

Here are similar Red Crystal Drop Earrings on Amazon, really fun to wear with so many things.  I change out the wires to longer ones when the earrings do not show below my hair in the front, very easily done.

Faux Suede with Denim

The look of suede with denim is such a classic and so versatile with different seasonal accessories and shoes.  In cooler weather, picture this with turquoise jewelry, denim jacket, long jeans and ankle boots for more of a southwestern look.  I will be wearing that look as soon as there is a hint of Fall in the air!

This is a lighter tone accent shoe option if you want more of a neutral look.  These tan wedge platform sandals are called  “Vibrant” and are by Naturalizer  (2-1/4″ heel, 1″ platform front, cushioned insole), you can shop a similar style here at Amazon.

As you can see below, I wore this outfit with different shoes and jewelry on our trip to Mt. Rushmore last summer that also included Jackson Hole, Wyoming!  We were only there for one night on our tour, but I do want to go back to Jackson Square for more exploring, I love the antler arches, so unique.  NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED for the antlers.  The antlers are shed naturally out in the wild where the Boy Scouts gather them up as a fundraiser.  What a beautiful, unique project for this region of our country.

    Hi Lori Jo! I love this outfit on you! The red accents go very well with the faux suede top. You know I’m already picturing it with boots and turquoise jewelery…lol . That antler arch is amazing!! I received my bathing suit from Amazon, like you had posted the other day….I love love love it! Thank you for pointing me in that direction, it’s so darn flattering!

      Thank you, Kathy! I have seen a few hints as to what Fall looks will be, already coming to some stores, crazy! Little gray ankle boots with thick heal and peep toe will be a big look, I am shopping Amazon now for some cute things to show all of my Flair Seekers. I also have my eye on a gorgeous squash blossom and turquoise necklace. So glad you love the swim suit! I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and flattering it is, I didn’t know what to expect. What color combo did you choose? If you want to post a picture on my Facebook page of yourself wearing it I would love that. There is a Facebook connection button at the top right side of my front page on the blog you can use to find me there. I have some other colorful things coming next week, talk soon!
