Spring Edition: Black Sweater & Leopard Skirt

by - Tuesday, April 16, 2019
How many ways can one really accessorize a black sweater and a leopard skirt? Apparently 3 and counting (see prior looks: one, two)! I know, I really need to venture out of this combo. Every time I think about doing so, I'm reminded that classics are classics for a reason.

Instead I decided to have some fun with the faux fur scarf, beauty pageant style.

On second thought, I'm better off leaving that for the beauty queens.

Spring Vibes in Pink & Olive

by - Sunday, April 07, 2019
Skinny jeans will always be a staple in my wardrobe. However, for this spring season, I'm all about thinner, drapey materials in varying styles. Wide legged, ankle lengths, and cropped versions are just a few examples that I've already tried, currently trying, and excited to try. As temperatures rise, so do hemlines.

Pop of Bottle Green

by - Wednesday, April 03, 2019
A neutral outfit doesn't have to be boring. I love mixing in textures (calf hair pumps), prints (when in doubt, leopard), varying metals (see closeup shot of jewelry below), proportions (short trench, longer peplum top), and finally, a subtle pop of color that is bottle green. There are so many details to draw the eye, but yet, the overall effect is quite cohesive.

Backpacks Are For Grown-Ups Too

by - Tuesday, March 26, 2019
Today's outfit -- backpack and all, has been an appropriate reflection of my work life as of late. Long hours (for me), working on multiple projects, fixing production issues, etc. I've been quite the studious worker bee lately, if I do say so myself. I see light at the end of the tunnel though, so here's to getting through the remainder of this week relatively unscathed!

A Spring Transition Piece

by - Tuesday, March 19, 2019
I suppose my practical nature is the reason I'm a sucker for versatile pieces. Officially named a "neck warmer" (love the term), this piece of cold-weather accessory doubles as an infinity scarf, a shawl, or even a half-blanket when the occasion calls for it. I like how it's not quite symmetrical with a small slit up one side. I'm right-handed, so that's the side I prefer to have more "arm room," but in actuality, I'm wearing it backwards.
