Hi Guys & Dolls!

A few days ago, While doing a little shopping in the Montclair neighborhood in Oakland I asked Mikey to whip out the iphone and snap a few shots of my outfit.  Considering these are cellphone pics I’m impressed with how good they turned out! I love sharing these types of everyday outfits- it’s like a little vignette of my life; Less posed and prim, more casual and honest. Don’t get me wrong, I love to get dolled up on the weekends, or on a random Tuesday if the mood strikes, but I rarely remember to take pics, much less find good lighting! I have some special things to share soon enough (I got a new pair of heels I’m dying to show off) but I’m curuous if you also like these simple everyday looks. 

Shout-out to Pantone’s color of the year Marsala! I love this choice, not just for the color itself but also for the colors that compliment it and how well it will transition from spring/summer and then  to fall. Last year’s choice, Radiant Orchid is beautiful, but more tricky to harmonize- it was best as a pop of color. This one (at least to me) seems easier to integrate as a neutral, with neutrals, and is more open to interpretation. I know my sweater is a deeper color than the true Panetone “Marsala” but you still get the vibe of the color and that’s the point. The color play in this outfit makes me so happy! The warm red cardigan and the rust boots are playing nice with the deep grey taupe of my blouse and pale taupe bag. Nothing matches, but when colors are harmonious they don’t have to!

Hey Guys & Dolls!

It is no secret I love colorful, whimsical, playful, loud and what some might consider (gasp!) tacky clothes, jewelry, hair and makeup. It’s my signature. In my mind, I’d like to think that I know what chic and understated is, I just choose to go the other route with what I consider to be more expressive choices. The thing is, lately I’ve been liking the well balanced route. Of course I still love unexpected mash-ups, but I think a simple, matching look like this is just as nice, and deserves a little air time (blog time?).

This is look is also great because so much of it is inexpensive! There are a few pricier items, like my boots, jeans and sunglasses, but those are staples and can be worn with so many different things, so those are worth investing in. But the elements that make this pop- the scarf, the shirt, bag, none of these things are over $25. The bag was an absolute steal- it’s a dupe for the Marc by Marc Jacobs Peppy Nylon Natasha. I’ve wanted one of those bags for a while but couldn’t bring myself to pay so much for a nylon bag. The material of this Old Navy bad isn’t as refined, and it doesn’t have a designer label, but who cares? It was $22.50 and it looks and functions amazing. I also see this an auditioning this type of bag and I *might* upgrade to the real deal in the future.

On another note, I’d like to start calling my Outfit of the Day’s “Wear & Share”. I think it sounds cuter, and OOTD always looks weird and “Outfit of the Day” seems kind of long. Wear & Share is simple, and it rhymes.

Have a heathy and happy day, and just to be yourself!
