There’s always a bright side. Even if it starts raining cats and dogs right after these pics were taken :-/
Suit: Zara (similar trousers here. Add a shirt instead – doesn’t have to be a blazer). Striped top: MNG by Mango. Brogues: Topshop (love). Bag: Coach vintage. Necklace: Second hand shop (thrift). Hat: ASOS. Disclosure: This campaign is produced by Style Coalition and sponsored by jcpenney.
I’ve definitely noticed something about me from years ago vs. now. I don’t wear head to toe black like I used to. Thing is, I never knew that I was until Michael plus a close friend pointed it out. I must have been in such a ‘coma’ of auto-dressing that I didn’t see it. For years.
If you showed my former ‘darker’ self the above pictures (or this jumpsuit), she would’ve laughed: ‘you’ve got to be bloody kidding. I am NOT wearing that.’
Now I love colour and have put away my all black uniform. Surprising bit though is that it actually feels better. If any of this rings true with you, I hope you feel inspired enough here to try something different. More why nots. Less why should I.
For this MNG for Mango challenge I teamed their striped top with a fuschia suit. Wearing classics are synonyms with Parisians so I twisted a classic suit to make it more me.
The former all black wearing Karen would never have approved.
