Here are some great looks, available right here at home…Cenla style!
Black and white, particularly contrasted together, are enjoying a comeback this year. Pairing a blazer and a satin cami with a favorite pair of jeans is a quick and easy look for the professional on the go. Pairing a blazer and a satin cami with a favorite pair of jeans is a quick and easy look for the professional on the go. We recommend the blush leopard blazer from Addie’s Boutique. With minimal puff, it is a way to stay on the puff shoulder trend without going overboard. This black satin cami paired with this Naked Zebra blazer is a staple that every woman can feature in her closet and is available at Addie’s Boutique in Alexandria. Pair with different textures patterns for a high-end look. As always, every woman should have a pair of dark denim jeans that fit properly. They have a dressier look. The staff at Addie’s recommend Just Black Denim. They are the perfect fit and feel for mature and mom bodies.
