Neutral Ground

DSC_8031_2Amongst my list of essentials for any season is a feminine military jacket!  I like this one because it’s not overwhelmingly long for my petite frame.  It’s cinched at the waist and accentuates a feminine silhouette.  The standup collar projects a corporal vibe.  And the studs add just enough embellishment to distinguish the jacket as belonging on the streets rather than in the trenches.  The military jacket is truly utilitarian because it’s neutral color lends itself to a plethora of looks and color palettes.  Here, I’ve paired it with an entirely neutral ensemble where every article is an essential piece in my opinion!

Resort Print and Burgundy

DSC_9363_2Happy Memorial Day weekend!  I hope you all have very exciting plans to enjoy the long weekend.  As promised, this is the Wayf print skirt from the Nordstrom half-yearly sale.  To me, this print reminds me of print found in resort wear.   There are so many color options to pick out of this skirt and play up, the decision boiled down to choosing the unexpected.  So, I decided to play up burgundy.

DSC_9420_2Burgundy may not exactly be the color at the forefront of one’s mind during spring or summer.  Surprisingly, it’s a deep, rich color which pairs nicely with turquoise.  I kept the burgundy to accessories only to maintain the fresh, breezy resort feeling this turquoise print carries.
