I hate seasonal wardrobes. Why should I buy clothing that I can only wear during one season? The answer is that I shouldn't... and neither should you. As my fashion and styling experience has grown, so has my knowledge of learning how to use pieces in my closet all year around. Since I am a lover of dark and neutral colors, it is important that I am able to convert my "winter and fall" pieces to "spring and summer" pieces (do you want a post on how to make a year-around wardrobe? let me know in the comments below).
For today's outfit, I decided to have fun! Fashion is all about expressing yourself and your style! I paired a flouncy fringe skirt... one of my new favorites with a bright floral top. Since my skirt would be considered a "winter' piece, I decided to brighten it up with a top that would normally be out of my comfort zone. But, since the weather was finally warmer, I decided that it was necessary to break out my bright colored and floral patterned clothes!
I have recently had a newfound love of mixing patterns and colors. Today's outfit was no exception. I decided to pair my fringy-floral outfit with a pair of polka-dot tights, another absolute favorite of mine. The outfit was then taken from boring to creative. Mixing patterns -- when done with caution -- can be a great asset to any look.
To finish off the ensemble, I put on a pair of oxfords with a pop... HOT PINK soles to tie in my bright colored tee shirt. These shoes had a subtle suede color on top, but bursted with life on the bottom so I wouldn't look too crazy.
