MONOCHROME

MonochromeOOTD_004

Ever since I saw NotJessFashion kill her version of a Power Suit in a badass head-to-toe red look, I’ve been obsessed with monochromatic outfits. My personal style fluctuates often, but right now I’m loving the easy sophistication of the monochrome trend.  This dusty blue blazer is one of my favorite pieces. It’s the perfect shade of blue to pair with light or dark colors and it’s oversize style makes it east to wear and move around in. Perfect if you want to look good and without sacrificing comfort.

This look was easy to put together, which is great if you struggle to get out the door in the morning like I do. And it feels really polished so I don’t have to worry about looking as frazzled as I feel.

Intergalactic: Galaxy Jordan XII Editorial

Today I’m excited to share some shots from my first published photography series. (eeeeeek) Back in May I designed and photographed a pair of Retro Jordan XII’s. I was lucky enough to have my photos accepted for the November/December <i>Street Style</i> issue of StyleEquation Magazine. This is extra special for me because  not only was I the photographer, I was also the designer so it almost feels like having two things published. Screen shots from the digital mag and original shots included.

Let me just start by saying, if you have curvy hips or thighs, I strongly suggest you find yourself a pencil skirt. When your big in the chest and in the hips it can be hard to find pieces that don’t make you look big in the waist as well. Pencil skirts highlight the curves of your butt and thighs and nip in your waist to create an hourglass silouette, and who doesn’t want that?
