I’m having a regular chill Sunday but this morning I felt something unusual in the air. I’m not sure what brought it on, probably just the good sleep, but I wanted to do something special with my look today. I bought this Miu Miu skirt on ebay about a year ago and never got a chance to wear it because I had a hard time finding something worthy to pair it with. When thinking about potential candidates I always imagined something simple like a black tank or tube top. A blouse had never occurred to me because I unconsciously wrote this option off as destined for a clash. This morning I put these notions aside and experimented and now I’m wiser for it. Clashing…hum…what a silly idea.
I really think that experimentation leads to more refined choices – past the safe black tops. But when it’s also fueled by a little inspiration at times you might even surprise yourself. Looking through pics of runway shows, reading fashion magazines or blogs, or just being style-observant might do the trick. No matter how you get your fix, when you feel stuck or your ideas get stale just (a) let go, (b) try something new, (c) and play around until it sticks.
What I’m wearing:
- Silk skirt by “Miu Miu”
- Silk blouse by “Beaubois”
- Necklace by “Marc by Marc Jacobs”
- Nude tights by “Donna Karan”
- Shoes by “Elie Tahari”
