I’m back, lovelies, and just in time to catch the end of summer. August was a month of serious transition, which unfortunately didn’t allow me any time or energy to devote to my blog. But I’m back in full force and excited to look at life in a new light, which is why I thought a white monochromatic ensemble would be the perfect reentry blog post. All white reminds me of a clean canvas, fresh and ready for the first few swipes of paint. This is also the last time I could wear white jeans for a while (does everyone follow that Labor Day rule?!)…
I have joined the graphic tee craze and picked up this great black and white one from a recent Robyn and Royksopp concert (have you heard their latest single, “Do It Again“? I am obsessed) . The muted white shirt is a complete contrast to the colorful lights, over-the-top outfits, and loud trance-like beats during Robyn’s show, but it definitely fits into my current “back to basics” style. I hope to have more to share on that front in September. It’s full steam ahead into fall, and I welcome all the changes that come with it.
Wedding season. The season of love and romance, old traditions paired with the new, gorgeous color palettes, and of course the best season [and reason] to put on that fabulous dress. A dear colleague of mine is getting married this Saturday in Clifton, Virginia to the love of her life and I can’t wait to witness their “I Do’s” and share in their celebration! What I am not looking forward to so much is the sub 50 degree weather and rain showers that are sure to make an appearance. It’s March for Pete’s sake, isn’t it supposed to be NICE outside?! But the wedding will commence and, hey, at least the rain will hide our tears… of joy of course! I am surely in for a good cry.
With this silly transitional weather ahead, I am going to go with a black and white patterned dress I found on ModCloth. It’s a neutral option that’s not quite “wintery” but not too “springy” either, which is great because I can continue to wear this sleeveless dress into warmer spring days, and maybe even the beginning of summer, too! I do want some pop of color against my black, white, and grey ensemble, so I luckily purchased a little neon number in time from a Banana Republic online sale!
