the ups and downs of spring

You know that moment when you want to celebrate spring but the weather will not corporate? This outfit is dedicated to those freezing spring days.

Creating the Look:
This look started with the coat. Once I realized that I didn't wear this coat all winter, I had to create an outfit. Since it was spring, I was ready to pull out spring colors. The yellow coat was perfect for a spring look on a cold day. At the beginning of spring, I love to pull out the pastel colors. I wanted to pair the coat with light blue so I chose a light blue cropped sweater. To give the look some dimension, I paired an over-sized button up under the sweater. I added some edge to the look by wearing leather joggers. I love color on color so I wore blue heels that were slightly dark than the sweater. To add colors outside of blue and yellow, I wore jewel tone earrings. I love the pairing of leopard with yellow so I completed the look with a leopard clutch.

Bold colors can easily turn a simple outfit into an eye-catching out.

abe (all black everything)

Every now and then I get into an all black mood. It's often spurred on by a maxi shirt I purchased from H&M in the past.

70s vibes

Please excuse me as I catch up on some post that are from the end of the winter...just know style is seasonless lol. One of favorite decades in fashion is the 70s. I love how the style was flamboyant but simple at the same time. I also enjoy the muted tones of the decade. Since I love this decade so much, you can image how happy I was to see the trends come back in fashion. 

Creating the Look: 
After seeing 70s inspired looks march around the streets of NYC, London, Milan, and Paris during fashion week, I was so inspired to put together a 70s outfit. This look started with the skirt. I love tone of the skirt, so I wanted the whole look to stay in that color range. Tie neck tops were big in the 70s, so I quickly choose a tie neck top to go with the skirt. Fur was another big trend in the 70s, so I paired the look with a faux fur vest. To go with the muted tones I wore olive heels. I gave the look a corky twist with my wasp emerald earrings. I completed the look with a perfectly brown purse and pink lips.

I always take new trends as a challenge to show how I can implement them into my style. Liking new trends doesn't make you a trend follower, only when you don't integrate it into your style
