If you’ve been following along my articles, you’ll know that I LOVE red. I think we shouldn’t limit wearing red to festive occasions. If I feel like red today, I’m going to wear red – even in my very corporate office. The feedback I received so far has been 100% positive. People seem to really like a pop of color in a sea of black and white (cough, cough, banks).
I’ve owned a lot of blazers – mostly all black – for my 9-5 day job. They are quite functional as well as professional looking. I’m sure my office is not the only one that blasts AC in the summer. Therefore, the blazer becomes almost essential if you don’t want to catch a summertime cold. But lately, I’ve been wondering why I never changed up the style and color of my blazers, until I came across this incredibly chic check blazer from Derek Lam.
To say that I love military style clothing is an understatement – I mean, I’m crazy about it. I love wearing whatever forms of variants that come with a string of buttons. They just look so chic to me and frankly speaking, this has become somewhat of a personal style. It’s no secret that I also love a touch of vintage – not full on 70s style obviously, but just a tad bit of that flavor would be nice.
As a creative person, I always appreciate novelty items. Of course, I’ve seen plenty of novelty gadgets that look ridiculous and definitely not to be taken seriously. When it comes to fashion, I do appreciate the occasional novelty accessories like…oh I don’t know, a circular bag in the shape of a woman’s head? Okay, it sounds weirder than it really is, but you get my point.
Strangely enough, I came up with the title of this post from an inspiration I took from one of the comments on my Instagram posts. Someone commented that I looked like a white swan in this outfit and I thought that was hilarious – but somewhat true. This is the first time I’m trying on a fluffy jacket like this one and I have to say I love it!
In my wardrobe, you’ll see a plethora of mini skirt – almost to the point of absurdity. Okay, that maybe an overly strong statement, but you get the idea. I rarely wear any medium to long skirts because I’ve been told they do not look good on me. One time, I tried on a blue midi skirt, which in my opinion was pretty darn cute, and my grandmother gasped and said: “Why are you wearing such a long skirt? Young girls like you should show more skin!” And I never wore a midi skirt again after that. Until now.
Onto my obsession with retro style, I finally tried cateye sunglasses that have made a major come back this year. They are everywhere on Instagram and so many influencers are rocking them. How could I resist the temptation to try them on myself?
Sometimes, it is good to go back to the basic. I’ve always been a fan of black and white. It is so classic you can’t ever go wrong with it. With that being said, I was on the hunt for something that’s chic, which is a hard to define concept, but when you see it, you know it.
I’m a big time listener to 70s music. My appreciation of retro lives not only in music but also in fashion. They always say styles come and go, but I say that some looks never go out of style (okay maybe it’s just me).
How many of you go through the entire winter wearing one or two coats every single day? I know I’m guilty of that. I’ve been wearing the same black down coat for 5 years and needless to say, I’m tired of it. Lately, I became obsessed with red, which is a big change from my black and white routine that lasted for years.
