Here’s an outfit I recently wore to a birthday party. I’ve read that Monochromatic/Black & White outfits will be very popular this Spring. While this is an easy trend to participate in (as most of us own black & white clothes) I’m always worried that I’ll end up looking like I’m wearing a uniform!
Shirt – Express
Black Denim – Garage
Ballet Flats – Wanted (similar from F21)
Necklace – Joe Fresh Alhambra dupe
Don’t you love flipping through a magazine with friends: pointing out
your favorite looks and wishlist items, then tearing out pages for
future inspiration? Grab a mug of Green Tea and see what caught my
attention in this month’s Stylewatch magazine:
I love Nicky Hilton’s pale pink cross body bag – and the relaxed vibe of her whole outfit. Alessandro Ambrosio’s skinny jeans look so stylish – especially with her neutral shirt and flats.
Kate Bosworth’s style reminds me of an earlier Kate Moss – always chic and understated. Also – I have major hair envy – seeing her pic in the black & white dress makes me want to cut my hair.
Gwyneth Paltrow is a permanent style crush – I know she’s controversial but I’ve always loved her – especially since I read this quote: “It’s easier to not change, not do something good for you, not work on
your relationship, not make yourself a meal, not work out. Everything in my life that’s good is because I worked my ass off to get it and to maintain it.” (source) Pretty inspiring, huh?
Although I’m not familiar with her acting, I think Ashley Madekwe always looks gorgeous – love her hair, brows & glowing makeup. And since she’s a fashion blogger, she’s always perfectly dressed too!
I’m so glad I purchased my American Eagle Denim Jacket – I can’t wait to pair it with lace dresses in the summer – Nicky Hilton’s outfit is such a classic! It will also look great with maxi dresses – I’d love to find a coral one like Jamie Chung’s.
This issue definitely has me excited for summer already (!). I don’t know if I’d ever purchase a denim vest, but I love the pink pants. And the shirt dress with metallic accessories seems like the ultimate vacation outfit – perfect for lounging by the pool or sight-seeing.
Will you be wearing Monochromatic outfits this Spring? Do you love or hate Gwyneth?
