Style Evolution

 

Usually during a change in season I feel my fashion style morph a bit. But this time around, there seems to be a lot more changing other than adding more scarves and cardigans. I feel like my own personal style has changed and I now am drawn to monochrome with a punch of color using shoes or accessories.
When people used to ask me whether I liked brown or black better I would always say brown and barely had a black piece of clothing in my closet (except for one black shirt I would keep for recitals and music gigs). But recently, I’ve been more into black instead of brown. This whole thing may seem like no big deal to you readers, but to me it’s a bit life changing- or at least wardrobe changing.
Almost every day when I’m putting an outfit together I gravitate towards white, cream, and black for clothing options. I also love to pair these colors with a camel bag. I then add orange or red shoes, or a colorful scarf to complete the ensemble and I’m ready to walk out the door.
So what has triggered this change? Who knows. But I do have to admit it is nice to change up the wardrobe every once in awhile. A lot of the clothing items I own are oldies but goodies that I’ve worn season after season. It’s nice to get rid of items that have had a good run in my closet and breathe new life into my style.

Has anyone else made the switch from brown to black? I’d be interested to hear your fashion evolution stories!

A TALL GIRL’S HEEL COLLECTION

I must say it took me quite a few years to become okay with wearing heels. I’ve always been self conscious about my height and even wearing flats I’m taller than all of my friends. But eventually I realized that if I wanted to wear heels I could- no matter what other people thought. Besides, it makes my legs look miles long- oh yeah! I tend to gravitate towards shorter heels, and of course heels with gold hardware. It’s not a huge collection, but it is growing slowly but surely. Here’s what I have so far beautifying my shoe rack:

THE POWER OF RED SHOES

I’d be the first to admit that I’m not one to wear a lot of color. I feel safe in neutral, earthy colors and always have. But one splash of color I can dip my feet into (literally) are red shoes- especially in the spring time. I really think they add a spring to my step, and make a black and white outfit more interesting and fun.  I get comments on my red shoes every time I wear a pair, and I can honestly say I own a few. Here are some looks I feel work great with the pop of a red shoe:

If you don’t own a pair I suggest you change that- I’m sure you’ll fall in love.

Have a great day!
