With the winter chill arriving in Minnesota quicker than I hoped, I needed a new way to stay warm and fashionable. I love my down feather Calvin Klein coat, however, it becomes quite monotonous when worn every single day. I wanted to switch it up occasionally- try a new trend other than a long black coat.
I have already seen several women on the street flaunting their flowing capes (or as some might call a poncho). Could this new fad be the piece of clothing to break up my chilly day boredom?
There has been one piece of clothing I’ve been dying to add to my closet; a light-medium wash, 3/4 sleeve denim dress. I have a particular design in my head and a small budget to support it.
The denim dress is a HOT trend right now. Not to mention, it’s versatile and easy, making the perfect addition to my wardrobe. This piece of clothing can be worn relaxed with flats and a scarf to brunch, then dressed up with heels and a sequined clutch to the bar in the evening.
So, here is what my countless hours of online searching have produced:
What do neon yellow, geometric patterns, and denim have in common? They make for a fantastic outfit! Denim shirts are a staple for every closet. I personally own four, all of varying shades; ranging from dark wash with studs, to pale and lightweight.
For this particular outfit I used my medium washed Else denim button up and added a RACHEL Rachel Roy geometric skirt, both from Macy’s clearance last summer. The skirt is made of a thicker, sweater material, giving the outfit a relaxed feeling. You can always tell when a woman feels relaxed and comfortable in an outfit, it shines through.
The other day while wearing this particular outfit around town, I had several individuals ask me, “Where are you going all dressed up?”
Lately I have gotten into a rut. I have the same three pairs of pants in rotation, two of which are solid black. I needed to break the cycle with something completely out of the box. Something bright, bold, and crazy. So, Saturday night I dug out my pastel patterned denim. I purchased them last winter on clearance at Macy’s, my favorite store if you haven’t noticed. They were $7.99 to be exact, practically a steal.
