I’m a lady who loves her heels. Always have, always will. Lately though I’ve been an admirer of the sporty trend taking the fashion world by storm, the flashy sneakers in particular. The relaxed vibe my new kicks add to my look feels so refreshing, and the yellow brightens up dreary winter days. This new obsession does not mean I’m getting rid of my heels anytime soon, but boy are my feet enjoying their break!
You really can’t go wrong with a head to toe black and white look. The color pallet is classic, while the playful patterns in the garments keep it young and modern. I love the cut of the top and how it opens in the back whenever I move. Another reason to love black and white, you have room to play around with colorful shoes. My pick was a pair of bright orange wedges that I slipped on after my walk on the beach.
Polka dots are a popular pattern this spring season, a little less obvious than florals, but just as fun. Now, I love a good garden party ensemble, but polka dots are much more wearable from head to toe. I was able to do the dots times two without it being overwhelming because the pattern on the pants is so subtle. Fun flats, a lilac belt, and Duchess rocking pink and red spiced it up!
Yesterday evening Max and I went to The Institute of Contemporary Art to hear ‘Jason Wu in Conversation.’ To say that I had a wonderful time would be an understatement. Mr. Wu was charming, inspiring, intelligent, witty, and modest. It was a real joy to hear him speak. Basically, he’s someone that I would love to be friends with, and not just for the obvious fashion designer perks, but because he seemed like a wonderful person. Mr. Wu was completely fascinating. I share his belief in owning both practical and impractical pieces in your wardrobe, and his love of feathers, beading, and a little bit of lace. Clothes are all about fantasy and fun, and fashion is combining that in a functional and wearable way, most of the time. Personally, I have always admired Jason Wu’s talent and I love his romantic and very feminine aesthetic. It seems as if Max really enjoyed himself as well last night, as he has declared Jason Wu his favorite women’s wear designer! Overall, I hope that was not my last encounter with Mr. Wu and I wish him so much more success in his future!
As for my look, stripes and florals almost always go together, as long as they’re in the same pallet. Heels and a leather jacket never hurt anyone either.
When I think of tweed, I associate it with the Northeast during colder weather. However, the color and weight of this tweed skirt are really throwing me for a loop. It’s too thick and structured for me to want to wear it during the summer, but too light and thin for the winter. I have therefore declared it an “in between” garment, for now.
I aim to have some fun everyday, and I typically like to start having the fun as soon as possible. Because I can’t eat cake every morning for breakfast, I get my kicks picking out an outfit. How can I not have fun wearing a bright blue sweater, and flouncy leopard print skirt? The answer is, it’s impossible. So, do yourself a favor and pick out a happy outfit today.
Getting back to cake though, it’s Max’s birthday this weekend, so we will definitely be eating some for breakfast. It’s a must on birthdays. Now don’t forget to wish him a happy birthday and thank him for making this blog possible! Happy Birthday Max!
You can never go wrong wearing black and white, especially when worn with red shoes. I may just be partial to wearing red shoes though because I was obsessed with The Wizard of Oz, but I’m pretty sure I could use science to prove that they will definitely make your day more fun. Dorothy really knew what was up. These ruby red slippers that I’m wearing were a surprise gift given to me by my mom from the last time I saw her. There really is no place like home. It’s science.
