tie it together

Ever notice the order you dress yourself? Do you usually decide that you want to wear a certain shirt first and then pick your pants, or do you commit to your favorite pair of jeans and then figure out your top business? Pretty sure my thought process for this look last weekend went like this:

teal romper… because I haven’t worn it since my vacay in Hong Kong


vintage blazer… because I had paired my hot pink Dolce Vita wedges with the romper in Hong Kong and dug the color combo


Sam Edelman booties… because at this point, I had committed to color blocking and wanted to add a third color


mom’s vintage scarf… because I had to tie everything together!

And there you have it, the dissection of how my brain works in the morning, as I stare blankly into my closet. Only this time, the process was organic and quick once I knew I was heading in the bold color blocking direction.

Thoughts on color blocking? Still into it or over it?

If studs and leopard print are on their way out the trend door, I clearly missed chose not to read the memo since this is a sampling of what I’ve  worn over the past few weekends… sans coat.  And hey, if you want to save some money and a trip to the tailor to get your tad-too-long skirt hemmed, try tying a knot in the front (or even on the side/back) for an easy solution (as seen above with my American Apparel skirt).

Special thanks for the love this week (Xo!):
