I'm so passionate about my favorite color (guess. Purple!) that I refer to it as a "lifestyle." But recently I've decided I have a strong runner-up: chartreuse.
This is a good time for me to break the news that my favorite coat has completely disappeared. Like...I'm almost more upset that I don't know what happened to it, instead of being upset because it's gone. Thank you, favorite coat. You were a bold choice that never let me down, and always kept me warm. Sorry I am such a dork about the sentimental value of apparel (like these shoes or these boots.)
The point of all of this being- this coat is where my love affair with chartreuse began. It's a statement color that's somewhere between yellow and green, but not entirely either.
I picked up this blouse at H&M in Helsinki over the holidays, on super sale. I've been pretending that this is the Banana Republic one I've had my eyes on for SO long (at a fraction of the price.) I thought it begged to be paired with a punchy statement necklace and leopard print!
Oh- and the story behind this "up-do"? I use those big claw clips in my hair, daily, (mostly while I'm brushing my teeth/doing my make-up), and somedays, they stay in my hair for work! This ended up looking like a chignon in the front, just don't look at the back ;) I was pretty pleased with it and it was SO nice having my hair out of my face for work!
So this is my second outfit post of the year? I'm feeling pretty good getting dressed these days. I'm constantly editing my closet (Poshmark is helping with that SO much!), I'm using a garment rack (I need to write a whole blog post about that, seriously) and when I get stumped, I'm turning to my "outfits to try" board on Pinterest.
Where do you turn for easy inspo when you're feeling stumped with your closet?
