A cute top and a great pair of jeans may seem like an ordinary outfit, but when done right it can end up being quite the stand out.

This week we are focusing on staple pieces with an edge and starting things off is a blouse with attitude. 

Rosie Assoulin's one-shoulder style in a beautiful marigold hue is made from crisp poplin and features an oversized rosette at the front. To keep the shape of the pleats, we left the top loose over a pair of Frame skinny jeans. Since it's colder than ever here in Kentucky, we definitely need a boot to keep our feet warm and our outfit stylish. Opting for a pair that isn't your run of the mile shoe, Moshino's leather ankle booties are printed with packaging label's in the brand's iconic, identifiable style. Tying in the warm marigold tone of our top is a bag that adds even more warmth and hints of color. YSL's 'Kate' bag is one of Saint Laurent's key pieces, now reimagined in a brown vegetable-tanned leather with tactile trims. It's expertly crafted in Italy with a chunky gold-tone metal shoulder strap and tan-brown whipstitching, alongside a chunky multicoloured leather tassel swinging from the top flap. Keeping our jewelry sunny yet understated, Vanessa Mooney's yellow jade stone earrings perfectly round out our outfit. For makeup, we decided to play up our eyes with Too Faced's brand new Chocolate Gold Bar palette. A luxurious gold and cocoa powder-infused eyeshadow palette that smells as good as it looks! Have a major metallic moment with foiled shadows that are created with real gold for an epic high shine finish that's paired with rich, seductive mattes for coffee to cocktails. A chic, casual look is always a good option for so many different kind of days. From work to an event, this 'Bold Marigold' look will leave an impression no matter where you might turn up.
