Woolen Shorts, Army Coat

DSC01598edited

When living in London I got exposed to the notion of wearing shorts in the wintertime within a multi-layered outfit scenario. Once upon a nostalgic afternoon in New York City, I decided to bring my woolen winter shorts down from the shelves and back to existence. It was happening. They make their way, accompanied with a color-blocked sweater worn over a silky printed grey blouse. The ensemble combo encompassed a rich, playful wintery color pallet with elements of color blocking and prints. The silk blouse projected a structure sharp collar, which I really appreciated. I completed the look with a dab of purple lipstick and my trademark purple scarf.

On the very same day I came across a cute little vintage store on 9th street by the name of “Glasgow Vintage Co” where I encountered a beautifully structured Scottish Male military Jacket in a size small. Legendary. The olive structured affiliate enhanced the look and created the precise finishing touch – an attire resembling a vintage school boy uniform.

Electric Daydream

www.stilettosandsubstance.com

Spring is the season of daydream, excitement at the increased day’s length and at the sight of pretty blooming trees. The season inspires us to press the restart button on our lives and start on a new page. New floral prints make their way back to our wardrobes as we feel the need to express our new happiness in color.

For this spring season, Ted Baker has a series of vibrant floral prints. Here I am rocking my new neon floral print blazer from the electric daydream collection. This blazer with its neon undertones is a staple piece for spring due to its styling versatility. It can be dressed up when paired with a pencil skirt for an evening dinner/lounge attire or with a pair of skinny trousers for a more relaxed daytime brunch look.

To Avoid detraction from the statement floral blazer I decided to keep my accessorizing to a minimal. I finished off the look with my favorite white booties from Asos and a simple chain bracelet.
