If you have been following for a while, then you might now I have a soft spot for colors and flashy outfits.
There’s just something in dressing that way that genuinely puts me in a good mood… that doesn’t mean I like to look like a piñata, but I always like to make an impression (whether possitive or negative); I guess it has to do with me just wanting to have fun with fashion and not care whether the world agrees.
That sometimes translates into less than conventional outfits that aren’t that chic, and although I’m definitely not intending to leave that love for perky fashion behind, I’m also trying to teach myself that sometimes less is indeed more.
Of course that won’t be something I’ll master from one day to the other so I’m taking it one step a time.
Today’s outfit is a perfect example: The simple silhouette almost makes me feel too plain, I usually need a bit of a ‘wow’ factor but then, there’s actually pretty strong elements already such as the printed pants*, wooden watch and golden sneakers (not everyone goes for those things, let alone together).
As a matter of fact I came up with this oufit in an inversed sort of way… you know how most of the time we choose the clothes and then we accessorize?
Well, this time I began with my new Jord watch… I knew I wanted to pair it up with an outfit in an earth-y color palette, and decided not too go too overboard with the other elements to let it be the star.
The thing I love about this watch is that it’s made of wood, which makes me think of nature and the recent talk of sustainable fashion plus it looks so original and fresh!
When I had to select the one I’d get, it was hard to make a choice between the light and dark versions, because they both looked great in their own way; in the end I went for the Fieldcrest model in black because I think it looks very modern yet sophisticated, and I can match it up both with casual and semi-formal outfits.
This is my first try at styling this watch, but I think I will be able to come up with other versions specially for the coming summer days that I’ll spent under the sun :)
Have a great friday!!
*Don’t mind the fact that I folded one of the bottoms more than the other ^^
