Anyone who knows me knows that I tend to stick with neutral (and often dark) colors as my base for an outfit. I generally prefer to keep my clothing fairly simple, but accessorize with a sparkly scarf, dangling earrings, or fantastic shoes. It’s not that I dislike color; I simply prefer to keep my backdrop simple, so that when I do wear color, it really pops.
However, sometimes it’s just so much fun to go bright! And that’s what I want to showcase today: a gorgeous, rose pink long-sleeved shirt, paired with simple black pants and adorable dark grey Jimmy Choo ballet flats.
These. Shoes! They are so comfortable, and they have lasted years of wear. If you’re going to invest in any designer shoes, go for Jimmy Choo! You will love the look, the quality is undeniable, and the comfort… oh, the comfort.
As you can tell, even though I’ve gone for a bright base, I’m still all about the details in this outfit. The shoes. The ring. The earrings. The mascara! Details are what really make a top with bottoms a proper outfit.
Here’s the thing: you can get dressed up in your fanciest top and bottoms, but if you don’t really pay attention to the details for the rest of your look (which may or may not include jewelry, make-up, and accessories), you probably aren’t going to get a wow! reaction.
On the other hand, you can make even jeans and a tank top attention-getting if you transform it into an outfit by focusing on the right details. Don’t neglect the details, my friends!
Pants: Costco (seriously. They cost about $5, have a fleece lining, are crazy comfy, and go with so many outfits!).
Shoes: Jimmy Choo.
Ring: boutique store in Barcelona.
Earrings: from a market in Istanbul.
Lip gloss and mascara: Smashbox.
What are you wearing today? Are you as obsessed with small details as I am, or do you prefer just throwing together whatever you can find? Do you like a colorful base or a more neutral one? Share in the comments section below!
