Gap cropped pants in pink // Hinge floral blazer from Nordstrom // Dolce Vita white snakeskin sue pumps
I created a draft for this post a few days ago and am now coming back to it to add my text. Since beginning this draft I posted a preview photo on my Facebook Page and got a funny comment from a friend who said that I’m always “lurking” in that alley. I had to laugh because yes most of my photos as of lately are taken in the alley behind the building where I live.
To jump in, we all know or most of you know I think, that pink is my favorite color. Any chance I get to wear the happy hue I take it and run with it. Kind of like you would a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes if they were on the clearance rack at some department store (I highly doubt that would ever happen but you know what I mean.) I paired the pants with this new floral blazer I scored at Nordstrom. I have to say I felt about as springy as one could get considering all the colors and pattern I had on. I chose to wear this outfit last Saturday for a fashion conference at the Art Institute of Seattle, myself and my good friend Sydney Mintle got to talk with high school seniors about the career possibilities in fashion blogging. YES THERE ARE CAREER POSSIBILITIES IN FASHION BLOGGING. It was a really awesome experience, I love public speaking very much and enjoyed connecting with the students there, learning their goals and dreams as well as answering all of their questions.
Francesca earrings that I bought for $9!
I decided to wear Julep’s Daisy nail polish with some bracelets and a ring.
I realize the idea of wearing florals for spring is kind of like a “duh” or “obviously”, I can’t help but think back to the scene in The Devil Wears Prada where Miranda Priestly is sarcastically incredulous in learning that floral was a groundbreaking spring trend. If you’ve seen the movie I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. I plan to wear this blazer well into fall/winter, so I’m excited I have it to test and try with a variety of outfits. Don’t be shocked if you see it back on my blog again soon!
