As the spring finally approaches, my mood is getting better with the sunshine. Today I decided to wear something really pretty and girly – this pink floral dress from Anthropologie with a light pink knit blazer from JCrew. I wore a pair of lace up heels from Sam Edelman and carried a quilted patent leather black purse from Michael Kors.
The other day I was thinking some of my wardrobe pieces were just downright boring and possibly drab, it’s a moment that I was almost questioning myself :“what was I thinking (when I bought these)?” Let me be clear, I am not saying that they are absolutely terrible, it’s just that they have the potential to look really, really bad…:p
For example, the piece I am wearing today- a pair of brown wool houndstooth trousers from one of my favorite stores JCrew. It’s got that British flair, famous Harris Tweed wool from Scotland has its own fascinating history ( I read an article somewhere about these few men’s adventure into Isle of Harris in search of those traditional fabrics). However for a lady to not look old and boring in this is a bit of a challenge. I decided to wear it with a white cotton jersey knit shirt and a navy horizontal stripe vest from Banana Republic. I tried to keep the menswear inspiration intact while still looking feminine and sweet. In the end I feel that this outfit reminds me of Rachel in the Friends, which I am currently watching on Netflix. You see how everything in this universe is somehow connected in a weird way?
It’s Sunday and I have an Easter egg hunt party planned for the kids in the afternoon. I want to wear something that’s relaxed but colorful for the event. I took out this pair of black jeans with wild embroidered lace side panels from Free People. I joked that I wear the same pants as Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland (played by Johnny Depp). I wore a see through floral bell sleeve blouse from Knox Rose, then I wore a beet colored leather jacket from Lucky Brand. I also wear a lacey scarf to keep myself warm in the chilly wind. I often wear heels these days but today I opted for a pair of suede flats from Kate Spade. So comfy!
