You see them hanging on the rack in the store- those vibrant colored pants. You are drawn to these pants and their out of the box color, but, ultimately, you purchase the same blue or black version.
Nervous to try them out? Honestly, what do you have to lose? It’s not like you are required to wear them every day for the rest of your life.
Here are some colorful pants that I’ve worn in the past…
Every woman has heard it- high heels are nothing but trouble. Deformed feet, back pain, and shortened calve muscles to name a few problems instigated by them.
But, as a 20-something woman I would gladly choose a day of aching feet and lower back pain to wear the beautiful stilettos and wedges gracing my closet. There is a sense of allure and excitement felt when you slip on pair of sky-high heels, ready to face the world.
I was never one for math. I understood the lessons and usually got a decent grade on tests, however, it never tickled my fancy. Nevertheless, when I see complex, geometric patterns on a dress I get more excited than a mathematician solving an impossible quadratic equation. I love pieces of clothing that have stimulation and buzz. Flashy shapes, colors, and textures attract me like Einstein to a mass-energy formula.
Let me explain the weather this past week…
Tuesday: Thunder and rain
Wednesday: High winds, and more rain
Thursday: Nonstop downpour of rain
Today: Morning and evening rain
So, how can I dress fashionable for the weather? By adding an adorable umbrella to my outfit!
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.
Zipping up my geometric, cupcake-shaped dress and slipping on my neon heels I knew it was going to be an amazing girls night out! There is something so exciting getting dressed up and snazzy with your girlfriends.
I stuffed my vintage clutch with miscellaneous shades of lipstick, grabbed my Betsey Johnson bow earrings, and ran out the door elated for the Friday night ahead.
My biggest problem during the winter months is how to express my personality and fun outfits while wearing oversized coats and clunky boots. My down-filled Calvin Klein winter jacket and furry Sorels get boring quite quickly. I love them dearly, they are the warmest pieces of clothing I own. However, with -40 wind chills in “Minnesnowta” I cannot afford to get frostbite because I want to wear that stylish olive green unlined jacket hanging in my closet.
Even though my black sleeping bag coat and snow boots are a necessity, I can still sneak in a pop of color and pattern. Here’s how I overcome Mother Nature and add some flair to my usually mundane winter uniform…
