So maybe I broke the rules a little bit with this ensemble. Yes, I wore white. White on white to be completely honest … in March. So SUE ME!
I just had to. I’m getting really sick of my winter clothes. Rotating the same pants and boots and blazers day in and day out. Even the excitement of finding new combinations has worn off. I’m ready for spring — spring colors, spring layers — spring. So when Style Me March‘s Day 11 challenge came around a few weeks ago, I had to protest a little.
“A little bit o sparkle”. Well there’s no shortage of that in my closet! I could have paired some with black, or navy, or red — colors that have riddled my wardrobe since October. Instead I broke the rules. I picked pale neutrals. Colors that are much more characteristic of the next six months not the last. Colors that normally only look good when I’m tan…
Maybe this look was more appropriate for Vegas or Miami in March … but who cares! That’s what a 60 degree day in Manhattan feels like!
Plus if you haven’t figured it out by now. The only rule to remember about fashion, is that there are no rules :)
