being that it is summer currently, i find myself surrounded with skirts & dresses & shorts & shirts. don’t get me wrong, i love this season–it’s just not my favorite. i prefer winter & fall, because there is more flexibility in expressing yourself through your clothes. think about it: you can layer oxfords under sweaters, sweaters under cardigans, and cardigans under that beautiful new navy pea coat you bought while you were “window shopping.”
loving this easy fall outfit: gingham oxford, navy pants, light trench & leopard flats
plaid is one of the many reasons i love fall & in this combination the bold colors really do pop
this yellow pea coat paired with a bumble bee cricket sweater is a killer combo perfect for a chilly day
pairing jeans & a sweater with a statement coat, these new yorkers know how to do a casual fall look
fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
although i am not too fond of humidity & blazing hot days with lows of 99, i have to say i am enjoying the time of leisure. picking up a good read, sleeping in late, & catching up with friends are the best parts of summer!
as much as i am lamenting over winter, i have to say summer is by far one of the easier seasons, which can be good & bad. you can easily go through your closet & pull out a dress & grab a pair of sandals & head straight out of the door. or, you could be sitting in your closet starring at the pieces of clothing wondering, “how in the world am i going to walk outside looking confident in those shorts from 3 years ago?”
these are two very different scenarios, but i face both on a weekly basis. i either know exactly what i am wearing, or i don’t. i think the trick to a good summer outfit is being bold & not afraid to mix & match. try the eyelet skirt with gingham, wear the shorts that are older than you would like to admit, & don’t be afraid to combine an outfit of a $30 dress with the $300 shoes. so, go for it, be courageous & remember you are dressing for you & nobody else!
