My two favorite colors to wear are black and white. Classic colors and not necessarily always part of the color trends in fashion. One of the spring/summer 2021 trends is “Monochrome Magic” – and this is my winter interpretation of the look.
The shacket. Is this even still trending? I’m absolutely late to the game but honestly, I wasn’t able to go many places in 2020 so I refused to spend money on new clothes that I couldn’t really wear. Now my therapist may argue that I need to go outside and get fresh air, hence a jacket or shacket, will be needed. But the reality is I am working remotely still much like the rest of the world and I often pick my head up to realize the sun is setting. End rant.
Its been almost 3 months in quarantine and I’ve worn jeans a total of three times. THREE TIMES! We are all living in leggings, sweat pants, or some type of loungewear. But recently I decided enough was enough.
I’m going to put on pants.
So apparently I’ve discovered color from that previous Lisa Frank backdrop. And I finally wore my flared jeans after months of deciding what to wear it with.
Can you tell I’m really feeling white for spring? If the monochromatic blog post didn’t do it for you then maybe this outfit will.
Recently, I attended the Create & Cultivate NYC Conference which is for females in the space of fashion, beauty, business, and everything in between – influencers, brands, entrepreneurs, etc. A few years ago I had attended this event to gain more knowledge because I am a true marketing nerd and chose to return again this year since times have changed and digital marketing has continued to evolve. Just like my love for wearing all white.
Finding multiple looks for one new item shouldn’t be difficult, but if you are like me – it is a TASK! When I got these jeans I was so excited that I had outfit ideas flowing out of my ears for days….. and then when it came down to actually styling them, well I got stuck. Sometimes when you have such tunnel vision you forget about the items you already have. Then you impulsively shop and have more clothes than you know what to do with but never know which new top you want to wear… So I got focused. And came up with these 3 looks…
Camel coat: casual spring look
Working 9-5, M-F in Midtown may seem part dream and part dreadful. I am knee deep in tourist attractions which means nothing but non-New Yorkers surround me. Once in awhile I spot a native New Yorker walking warp speed (like myself) down the street and instantly get fashion inspiration. Granted I have seen plenty of suits, which are all in various shades of blue, but I hardly ever see a fashionista strutting the streets. Recently I rare sighting of a fashionable New Yorker sparked an idea – A STATEMENT COAT.
Casual is comfortable, just like this look. This is very true to my style in the sense it is more sporty and involves sneakers. We can all agree it is hard to wear sneakers in the freezing cold when we are all much warmer in boots. However what was most fun about this look was that I was able to layer this with my new favorite bralette from Free People.
Florals for spring? So ground breaking! Any one else sick of hearing/reading that phrase? Yeah me too. As true as it may be, the weather lately has not been matching the “April showers brings May flowers” phrase. May had plenty of up and down weather, now that it is June I am waiting for consistent sunshine. Without sunshine I get rather…
