How to: Make Spring Looks Complex 

Hello,

  If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve heard me talk about my belief that the best outfits are complex. Making an outfit complex adds more detail to the eye and in return, is more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Making an outfit complex in colder weather is a lot easier to me. In the warmer months, you have to get a little more creative. One way to do this is to belt a scarf as part of your look (this can be seen in my “Own It” post). Another way to make a look more complex is to add a kimono to your look. It’s lightweight so you don’t have to worry about it being to warm. I opted to do this in the look below but I’ll be doing a lot more looks with kimonos!

Florals: Reaping What You Sow

Hello!

I love to wear florals year-round. I love flowers in general. They’re pretty on the surface but a lot of work went into getting them into their current state. Often times I find myself admiring flowers without thinking about the work that went into them. In a garden for example, the gardener had to sow a seed. Chances are, there was a lot of trial and error. It’s a good chance that the weather was uncomfortable and the gardener probably thought about giving up once or twice. However, the gardener knows that what is sown into the plant, is exactly what will be reaped. You can’t reap what you don’t sow. You may not be exactly where you want to be but what are you sowing right now to get you there? Maybe the sowing for you right now means spending less money on clothes and investing in that business you’ve been thinking about. Maybe sowing for you is spending time with your loved ones before you go off to school in the fall. Whatever it is, know that what you are sowing will eventually reap a harvest. As you’re sowing, have that as your vision and use that for motivation when you feel like quitting.

Own it!

Hello!

   I don’t really have a classified style. I wouldn’t say that I dress preppy, girly or any other defined style. Let me say that there’s nothing wrong with any of these styles. If you identify with a particular style, own it. I’ve just always believed in dressing for my mood. Fashion, for me, has always been about expression. Well this morning I felt a mixture of excitement and boldness. So mixing prints and colors was a “no brainer” this morning. 

   Sometimes people ask me why I the outfits I wear don’t match. It’s true. I tend to mix prints and colors in ways that aren’t traditional. It feels natural for me to express myself this way. Over time, I’ve just owned. Whatever your style is, know that it’s yours. Your style is an expression of who you are and how you feel. Own it!
