I’ve always been drawn to a floral pattern, and have accumulated many varieties in my time. By far, my favorite way to wear florals is in a dark and moody manner. Feminine and edgy is a winning combination for me every time.
I love a monochromatic look. I wear head to toe black practically every other day. When it comes to mustard yellow though, I tend to err on the side of caution. It’s one of the few shades of yellow that I can wear as a blonde, and I do not take that lightly. I find that this shade works best for me in small doses and in a modest cut. I really like the feminine feel this top gives to my distressed boyfriend jeans, and it’s simplicity allows me to have fun with accessories, like a red lip, color-blocked clutch, and leopard print slingbacks.
When I was younger I used to beg my mom to let me jump in puddles barefoot. Only sometimes she would say yes and I thought it was such a special treat to wander around the yard by myself and walk through the mud! I still love the rain, but as an adult I tend to dress a little more appropriately for the weather. Flat waterproof shoes, clothing that doesn’t skim the ground, a soft sweater, and my bubble umbrella are my choice favorites. Duchess prefers the look of a classic yellow rain jacket, or she just enjoys being the center of attention, we’ll never know. Either way, she’s always jumping in puddles barefoot.
