Cobalt & Chevron
— What I wore…
Top: Lush (Available at Nordstrom/Nordstrom Rack) Skirt: CY U.S.A. Necklace: Vintage Bracelet: Gift from a friend in Cabo — Musical Inspiration: “Oceans” by Coldplay —
Like anyone with good taste in music, if I do say so myself, I am obsessed with the entire “Ghost Stories” album by one of the most amazing bands ever: Coldplay. The song “Oceans” just so happens to fit perfectly with the “feel” of my current favorite outfit. I took the dreamy ocean blue and white palette of this cheerful Chevron printed skirt and ran with the theme. For a charity event I paired the top and skirt with cool hammered silver accessories and kept my shoes nuetral to elongate the legs.
I’m happy to include both “real life” and “professional” shots with this outfit because I think it’s important for you all to know that I really do try to get as much “mileage” out of a look as humanly possible! When you love an outfit so much it should never be worn once and forgotten.
I also filmed a short video for you all on the night I went out for the first time in the outfit. As much as I love writing I want to periodically speak to you in my own voice about how and why I put outfits together. In the video (link below) I also talk about my hair and makeup choices for the evening which also tie into the theme. Hope you enjoyed it!
Now go listen to “Oceans”, imagine tranquil waters and sink into an ensemble that would impress even the dreamiest of sailors.
“Sea” you later…. 😉
