I was running late for work, so I had to put together this outfit in a hurry. When I don’t wear jeans, I go for my Banana Republic cropped pants. I got a few pairs in different colors back in December. I love how stylish they can make a pair of kitten heels look.

I layered with a breezy camel tone scarf that made my lipstick pop. Whenever I use a bold red, I try to keep it minimal. I wanted the outfit to have a vintage feel, but I offset it with more current material and the bundled scarf. This style with the cropped pants makes me think of a Grace Kelly or Jackie O ensemble. I’ve always admired the simple beauty in these outfits.

Maroon Afternoon :)

Maroon Afternoon :)

One of my hobbies is going to see the new exhibits at the Arkansas Arts Center here in Little Rock. The pieces today included Bauhaus architecture photography, drawings by Van Dyke and Rembrandt, and another artist who reminded me of Georges-Pierre Seurat, who is one of my favorite artists. The balance of colors and careful use of space in Seurat’s Sunday Afternoon makes me wonder how the artist’s mind works. I’m amazed at Seurat’s ability to translate a series of colorful dots into a unified, beautiful image.

Whenever I see current fashion trends, I notice that accessories tend toward vibrant color. I like to make use of the traditional brown and black when I can. I paired my cream and yellow outfit with a maroon hat and purse. My accessories popped out, but still have the outfit a good color balance.

Sorry I’ve been vacant for a bit, I found a job working at a Dry cleaners. I will still be posting as much as I can!!

I stumbled upon a really cool thrift shop in Little rock, and found this really cute 60’s romper. I felt like this is one of those pieces that could make a statement by itself. So I stuck with black, and nude to compliment the romper, but not take away from it. Keeping it simple can make things look clean, and put together.
I hope everyone is having a good week so far! 🙂

San Francisco

San Francisco

This past week I got to experience San Francisco, which is a breathtaking city, that captured my heart. It has an array of skyscrapers, but the essence of the ocean, and little shops that even out the bustling metropolis . I wore my black crop top that I got at a thrift store in Glendale recently. It caught my eye, because the floral detail gives it an intricate look. The embroidery on the shirt paired well and stood out against the soft texture of my high wasted black shorts.
Another piece I found while in California was the transparent Calvin Klein heels. I wanted these to stand out, so I stuck with simple jewelry: a vintage, gold- chained , translucent apple. I’ve been looking for transparent heels, but they’re so hard to find at a good price, that don’t look cheap and cheesy.

P.S If you’re ever considering a visit to San Francisco I would recommend bringing a sweater. It gets extremely windy, and chilly at night!
