Personally, I think it’s fun to mix casual and dressed-up pieces and inject some sparkle into an everyday look. This particular sequined blazer by Rebecca Minkoff is actually meant for a night out of some sort, but every time I’ve worn it, I pair it with distressed jeans or denim shorts, like these Free People shorts that I’m wearing.
Like I mentioned in my recent post, Green Suede and Snake, second layers are the best investment one can make. They’re also the easiest way to give dimension to any outfit, which results in your own piece of art with your own personal aesthetic touch.
I’m a firm believer that fashion is a form of art. It takes a certain eye and skill to create a cohesive ensemble. It might not be considered a fine art, but it’s a decorative or applied art, without a doubt. The same amount of artistic expression goes into an outfit, as it does with a painting.
There’s nothing I love more than an all black outfit, but sometimes it feels really repetitive when I wear all black, all of the time. An easy way to make each all-black outfit different and intriguing is to incorporate pieces with textures, embellishments, and/or prints.
I don’t really gravitate towards Free People very often because it has more of a bohemian look that I don’t define myself as, but you can find some really great pieces that have a very edgy look to them!
Never obsess about chasing love. Chase goals. Chase dreams. Chase the behaviors that are going to make you better. You don’t chase love; you allow that to find you by accident, and when it finds you on accident, you’ll know that it was supposed to find you purposely.
P.S. Did you notice the name change? The past “busy and crazy” year shaped my style into a new look and made me realize that I outgrew what I branded the last blog as. We’re allowed to outgrow and end chapters of our lives, right? You’ll start to notice darker looks and a lot less pastels.
