LIGHTER VIBES


lately, I've been gravitating towards lighter tones & as someone who constantly turned to black, it's hard to accept the fact that when I get to a retail rack, I'm looking for nude, white, pastel things. 

consider it dramatic, but I feel like this outer shift is deeper a metaphor for something... 

I've always, always believed that people's outfits best represents who they are. with just one look, you can gain an understanding of a person based on their shirt, pants & shoes. (sry but I do just books by their covers. *insert shoulder shrug.*)

so, there's something to be said about my love for light-ness because it doesn't just stop at my closet, it's taken over my pinterest boards, apartment & mental state. 

when life was at its worst, my style reflected thatblack hair, purple nails nails, dark outfitsbut with my newest paths, happiness has been a constant, and with that comes #ootds complete w/ white pants & gold shoes. (seriously though, wtf!?) 

I mean, I can't be the only one who finds the best way to express themselves is through shopping, clothes and outfits...right?

  3. I think it is normal to express yourself through your clothes. I don't think black has to be depressing, it can be powerful or sexy or confident...but whatever the color means at that point in your life it can be expressed through clothing. Love the lighter look here, gorgeous!

    1. that's why you've got to grab one from a fast-fashion spot so if & when it does go out of style, you won't feel so bad. (that's what I do, at least.) x

  12. I wear a lot of black during the year, but when spring comes around, I'm ready to shed that and start wearing lighter, crisp neutrals. Maybe it's the heat ;)

    Love this look on you!
