Bold Colors and Contrasting Details
Mix feminine, fun and strong details. This #ootd is work-safe, with a twist. Since I’m my own boss (couldn’t have it any other way) and I’m in a creative industry, I can get away with some fits and textures that others in a more serious industry may not be able to. I make my own rules, but also know that every day of the week I could run into clients or prospective clients. So while embracing my edge, I still have to appear professional and put-together.
Details, details, details
Mixing a tailored blazer with a feminine, peplum top keeps the details pulled together. The eyelet detail on the Banana Republic top with a heavy metal Zara necklace overlay accentuates that style contrast, and ties in with the faux-leather high-waisted skinny pants (from Akira Chicago). Yellow is my color of the season, and it’s showing up everywhere! You’ll see more and more of it as the summer progresses. Thanks for tuning in!
