And Happy -belated- Valentines! I hope you all had a really special day!
Although I am late on this post, I still wanted to share a fun Valentines' look with you. I saw this skirt recently and was instantly drawn to it. The crisp, bold color., the intricate cut-out details, the velvet-like material... there is so much to appreciate about this piece!
I immediately thought of this structured blouse to pair with it. I've had this top for a while now, I got it over the summer and I have worn it several times; with jeans, trousers -mostly safe pairings. This was my first bolder pairing. Sometimes these ideas are better in my mind than they are in actuality, but I was really happy with the turnout. Its such a crisp, clean, classic look.
I kept the red theme going with my bag and lip color, accessories minimal, and nude heels so as to not to distract from the overall look.
This is a special post for me for another reason as well. This is will be my first post for Cosmolinx. Cosmolinx is an organization that supports "local creatives" specifically in the fashion industry. This includes boutique owners, designers, models, and bloggers just to name a few. The leader, Marie, is so lovely. I just admire her so much for how gracefully she handles everything. She offered me the opportunity to blog for the group a few months ago, and now all of the pieces are falling into place. Its an exciting time! A huge thank you to Marie for the opportunity!
And thank you all for reading and continuing this journey with me! I'm so grateful! =)
