WhatIWore: It’s only been a few days since I pushed post on my big rant on fashion blogging, but I can tell you that something has changed. It was like a huge weight I just needed to get off my shoulders to move forward - and it worked! It sounds like a lot of us are in the same boat with feeling like we’re over the current state of the blog world. Your comments, emails and notes reminded me of why I blog in the first place and if it’s possible to feel the bonds of friendship, even with strangers online, I felt them. Trust me, I was bracing myself for a shit storm, so a million times over thank you.
Now, let’s talk about this get up!
When: January 25, 2016
Shades: Karen Walker ‘Northern Lights’
Black Moto Jacket: MICHAEL Michael Kors (this similar number has awesome reviews and is a good price)
Skirt: Self Made
Tights: We Love Colors
Booties: Rag + Bone
I used to be the queen of colored tights (according to me, in my own world, population: 1) but I haven’t worn them very much lately. This deep garnet/maroon shade is a good gateway. Dark but not too flashy like you’d get with brighter or lighter colors (see me wear pink, yellow and purple).
The skirt and jacket combo is a repeat from the good old days and i like how it looks now too! When I wore it back then I said it was a nod to my former style too, so I guess I’m on the right track!
I also had my hair cut and colored last week because I’m aiming to go back to a brighter blonde but gradually. It sometimes take a trip to the dark side to realize that I have more fun as a goodie locks. And seeing my son’s beautiful light hair makes me with I was his color. Maybe by summer I’ll get there. Slow and steady!
