Happy Mother’s day weekend! Lately, I’ve been finding myself running from point A to point B only to have to turn around and return to point A. It’s physically exhausting and, unfortunately, it’s been draining the creative fashionista in me. It’s times like this that I turn to monochromatic pairing. Especially black with black. This is a very similar outfit to one I threw on in ten minutes last weekend before heading out to dinner in San Francisco. The only difference is I should have worn these knee high socks with are so comfortable yet chic. I always like to break up a monochromatic ensemble by mixing in texture and/or accenting with a pop of color. In this case, since my skirt is heavily embellished with studs and laser cuts I skipped the pop of color altogether. In retrospect, I could of chosen a vibrant lipstick.
Catherine Malandrino was really ahead of the trend with this skirt. I picked up this skirt three years ago and, at the time, it looked so futuristic. Today, it’s right on par with the current trends this season. In fact, I can’t seem to take my eyes off of anything with laser cuts. Be forewarned, more laser cuts to follow! 😉
This gunmetal necklace is my favorite necklace which I’ve worn in the Deja Blue post. I would share the brand, but I haven’t a clue. It was a random find at a local shop in Greenwich Village during my last trip to New York. What I love most about this necklace is its weightlessness which makes is so easy and comfortable to wear. Weighty necklaces make me feel shackled and like a slave to fashion. Never a good thing!
Happy Mother’s day again and thank you for stopping by my blog!
