You all know I couldn’t stay on neutrals for too l long. I needed a little pep in my step! I’m gearing up for a big transitional period and color provides that extra surge of energy necessary to tackle the accompanying endeavors. Fridays are for fresh looks and if you’re a follower you know my I’m an avid closet remixer. I’ve had this neon dress for a year now, and I’ve found a couple of different ways to wear it. It’s been beautiful these past couple of days but it’s still sweater weather. I thought rather than wear the floral cardigan over the dress I could try something new. Inspired by this look from the Ostwald Helgason Fall 2013 show I decided why not slip it underneath the dress. (You could substitute the sweater for a chambray or floral button down!) To top the look off I added a Banana Republic statement necklace. One of my favorite style icons Iris Apfel, says “real style is a deep curiosity about yourself.” So goes my new guiding principal. Outfitting should very much be a love affair with the self; why not be indulgent every now and then? What I appreciate about this look is that there is a lot happening, and not happening all at once. Each piece acts on it’s own. Remove one, and it says something completely different. Subtle details make the boldest statements don’t they?
