Summer Stripes

Color is the hardest thing for me to wear, so here's my attempt at summer color.

One thing that I always find hardest to do is incorporate color into my wardrobe, at least as of late. So, the other day while I was out shopping around for some cool pieces, I happened to stop by American Apparel and found this amazing colorblock t-shirt. The reason it caught my eye is the colors are very well-assembled, meaning the natural colors combine well with the greens and blues. The colors aren't too vibrant, which doesn't sit well with my skin; my skin tone calls for muted shades (think fall / winter colors).

I went ahead and paired the shirt with my go-to black skinnies and a new pair of loafers from Donald J. Pliner. I felt the shoe's woven material mixed with white leather contrast really lightened up what could have been a very dark outfit. The hat pulled together the look with a simple, classic touch.

All in all, I loved the outfit and I thought it went well for the Sunday brunch that I attended in San Francisco. Can't wait to share the next outfit with you all. Until next time!

Monochromatic

Life isn't all black & white, but my outfit is.

Today's post is going to be short and sweet, as I have to run out very soon, but I wanted to share with you what I'm heading out in. Completely obsessed with and going through a black & white phase, there isn't much color dimension to my outfit; however, what I've done is tied in the amazing metallic brogues sent my way by ASOS. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but they definitely liven up the outfit with just the right touch.

Overall the outfit is very simple, allowing me to run around the city with ease to finish what needs to be done. Then, after I've run all my errands, I can easily meet with friends at a bar, dinner, or just somewhere that requires a little more effort in dress. Black & white is always transitional and this outfit is no different.

Next time you're going out for the day, use my not-so-secret secret of black denim, a white t-shirt, fancy shoes, and a third piece (i.e. coat, cardigan, jacket). Doing this will ensure that you look your best with minimal effort.
