I think I'm obsessed with this outfit. It's full of contrasts, which make it unique and interesting, and I really enjoyed wearing it all day. It's feminine, but has a menswear feel; it's classic but has a modern twist; it's neutral but uses a pop of color and a touch of pattern to make it special. To top it all off, I threw on a string of pearls and felt fancy all day long.
Now that I work at LOFT, I feel a lot more pressure to put a lot of thought and effort into building my outfits each day. I don't mean this in a negative way, however, because this has been a great exercise in exploring my personal style even more and adding "completer pieces" like the right necklace, scarf, or jacket. I feel like so many women, including myself, don't know how much of an impact adding that last touch can have. With the addition of styling my hair differently, having a complete outfit made me feel great.
Which clothing pieces make you feel great? How do you complete an outfit? How do you choose your accessories?
