|did I hear someone calling for help....?!?!|
|waiting for the surprise attack|
We see what's in store for the weather this week!
1. striped skirt.... for some reason, I keep wanting to wear this striped skirt. I keep imagining it with old and new tops, colors and shapes... As a result I keep wearing it. The shirt I really wanted to wear it with yesterday is against the company look policy (it is a tank top). I would need a sweater or something to cover my shoulders... alas. So yesterday I wore it with this borderline boring white tee. I liked that it falls off the shoulders for a romantic look, which kinda goes against the harsh horizontals on the skirt.
2. nail polish... I still can't resist the lure of nail polish in Ricky's, especially when I cut open the boxes of the new shipments. Essie's Brazillant summer line came into our store a little while ago, and I could not tear my eyes away. So I recently decided to buy one of the colors featured in the line. I picked "A Shore Thing," which is a light seafoam color. It is pretty pale. I would say it is between Essie's "Mint Candy Apple," and a cool cream color with a touch of grey. There is a hint of color, making it a trending summer pastel.
repeat offender dress, which will probs be repeated this week for an interviewish.
|excuse the blurriness... its deffo my fav of the day|
I paired my new dress with... my JC babies, a favorite belt, and a forgotten bag.
NOTE: A couple of things. I used a tripod to capture these images and I am still not good at it, hence the cut-off body parts. Also, because I had to use a tripod, I decided to take photos where I was most comfortable, my (parents) house. This post gives a little peek into my house. I really love the way my parents decorated and made the baby brownstone their own. I only hope I am lucky enough to create my own space as they have. Reviewing my pictures, I could not tell if they were featuring the outfit or the decor and coloring of our (their) home. The house holds rich colors, art and antiques. Maybe it is just because I grew up here, but I feel like the mixture is ideal and can't imagine it any other way. I need to marry a footballer so I can buy the house off my parents.
What do you think of summer prints and the creative hair extension trends?

Anyone have any burger spot suggestions in the City?
duck skirt, but my father informed me that the combo was moderately offensive. So I tried this black floral skirt that I got in a Primark in London, with my fav striped shirt. After putting on the combo I added my brown summer heels, as I described them to a friend the other day. The outfie deffo didn't feel like early summer, but neither did the day...
My summer brite nail polish picked up my mood and added a more summery feel. Though, I feel that the black stripes on the white ground is open and not heavy, and the pretty flowers on the skirt speak spring and sunshine.
I am still not sure I have the talent necessary to coordinate two completely different patterns... I might make a second attempt. Suggestions?
So, it's finally summer time, and people are thinking "Enough with the dull stuff, bring on the light..." I saw that all day yesterday and the past couple days on my meanderings. The people have spoken, the weather has changed, Loud Bright Nail Polish is in. Pastels are nice, but bring it up a notch, make it scorching. From neon orange, to warm turquoise, to hot pink, to blazing purple... the more iridescent the better...

This epiphany occurred when I was tidying my room, and I came across these earrings I purchased who knows how long ago. They happen to be my largest and loudest (and heaviest...unfortunately) earrings I own. I feel like I bought them at a time when I thought "Hey, I can wear large loud earrings too." It was deffo a short lived phase. I saw them mixed in with other pieces of jewelry I forgot about, and once I laid eyes on them, I knew I had to try to wear them. So, I coordinated an outfit to go with them. They became my pop of color to an almost typical work day outfit...
I was also told by my younger sister, who read something somewhere, that Diane von Furstenberg has declared Cheetah is now a neutral (I am still working on finding the source). This transforms a print, a festive print, into a solid, and better yet, a staple color. I still think that this specific animal print is not completely appropriate in all the same environments that neutrals are accepted. Hmmm....
|my pop of color and new "neutral"|
What do you think? Can Cheetah be considered a neutral?
