This is a cool sleeveless cardigan, the kind that will turn a chic piece into a casual outfit. Casual chic is definitely what I prefer… the high waisted pants (they are not leather by the way) plus the silk blouse give off an elegant attitude. And as you probably noticed, I am a big fan of navy blue matching with black and a lighter but still neutral tint like grey. The contrast falls also in the chic “department” always. Furthermore my legs look really and that is to thank the same color and kind of texture running from my legs to the point of my toes : black pants + black high heeled shoes! And please notice again the 4 color code is still applying here : black, navy blue, light grey and… a little blue scarf!
Today’s question: are pink and black outfits overdone? I agree that this combinaison is particularly fit to teenagers. Who hasn’t done it when they were 15? Black and pink only, usually black pants, shoes, cardigan, black eye make up and a pink t-shirt (let’s not forget the inner mystery and drama of our mood). It’s so punk in it’s is own fashionable way. So for this session, I wanted to re-use these two colors and make it work so that I don’t look like a 15 year old. Therefore, I mixed a new color with it: beige/grey or taupe. Three main colors with a fourth: dark green from the peacock pendant. Having 4 colors maximum will bring balance to the equation.
Black and feminine is rock’n’roll to me… The energy of an outfit comes from how YOU feel it and live it. I like it when I feel like I can rock in my clothes! So yes, a mini skirt, a light black blouse (kind of spanish looking by the way) and a pair of heeled boots (leather what else to feel rock’n’roll???) was my pick for today. With mini skirt like these, and because I am not very tall, I often come up with a perfecto style jacket. It’s cool looking because of the motorcycle inspiration and because it is not symetrical. Also don’t black and jeans colors go well togetheer? It’s always a winner match. In order to make things work in this outfit I added a grey/beige scarf that go well with the boots.
Every woman sometimes wonders how they can use their work clothes in another context than work… Well why not? if the fabric is really lovely, comfy, if you love the color. Here the dress is of a kinda pinkish grey, the fabric is very soft, falls straight and doesn’t wrinkle. Cool dress, fancy look (the top is special and detailed but you can’t see it because I hid it purposely). So I wanted to wear it on a more relaxed note. The ballerinas (Chanel style please!) definitely inspire relaxation. Let’s talk about the colors: grey hues (shirt) and a light jeans color (jacket) were my pick for this dress.
A weekend in Californnia, even in the middle of January, gives the possibility to wear a pair of jeans shorts. Yes it is not too cold but I still prefered to match it with a big and thick cardigan. I love everything about this outfit: the scarf, the bag, the shoes (still with heels), the shorts of course, and the dentelle mitaine gloves! Another pair of mitaine that I keep for cool occasions. The shorts are quite nice and I bought them partially because of the studds.
Here is an outfit, not too fancy looking, that would work for going out in the day or night time. What I really like is the H&M jeans, a sort of whashed grey fabric, easily put together with other pieces. The jacket is simple but classy, with a vintage touch with big black shiny buttons and big pockets. Oh and I alsmost forgot to talk about the most awesome Bottega Veneta style bag… The woven pattern, between the two types of leather give a wonderful sparkling touch!! And of course, the low boots, found in H&M, are just as sober looking with the stylish detail of the golden zipper. Hope you like it!!!
