As the final day of the no denim challenge hits, momma decided to hit full throttle and go full out and dress as though she going to dinner with Tom Hanks (hints of exaggeration right here…but that’s pretty fancy for where I was going). I wanted to have my last outfit be cool and chic and complex yet simple. So, I thought about layering in volumes; airy and breezy. I also wanted the whole look to be monochrome (sorta) but with a pop of red on my lips. I haven’t worn red lips in a while and was in the mood for them. Red lips, for some reason, always give me an extra added power and confidence.
WHAT I WORE:
TOP: Ipekzade (from Turkey) ♠ PANTS: Zara ♠ SHOES: Aldo ♠ BELT: Vintage ♠ BAG: Nine West ♠ EARRINGS: Etsy
I love how the top when cinched in with the bet created a similar kind of waves as the pants and this is exactly how I envisioned the outfit to be. I didn’t want to stray off too far away from the colors I was wearing and so I added this faux snake leather clutch from Nine West. I could potentially consider this as a vintage piece because I own it since 2005. My sister got it for me as a gift when I was in university and looking for special pieces to build my “adult/party” wardrobe with. Love you sissy! She always knows what I love and gets me the coolest pieces.
Although this challenge was pretty awesome and wearing no denim forced me to be completely creative and a little out of my lazy comfort zone, it feels great to end it as well. I miss my jeans and I am ready to go back to them for a little bit now.
Dressing up always adds a little something special in my day..it gives me confidence and a boost to face the world and follow my dreams.
