Admittedly, i’ve been in an outfit funk for a few weeks. Every outfit I document for you guys has just felt off. Either i’ve felt gross in it or i’m just not happy with the styling. So the other day when i was getting ready, I sat in front of my closet for a good 15 minutes and allowed myself the time to pull options. I layered pieces i’ve never layered, pulled items that weren’t seasonally appropriate and just gave myself the freedom to do whatever came naturally. This outfit was the result and I love it.

It never donned on me to go monochromatic. I consider myself an expert pattern mixer and that is a comfortable area for me, but mixing items within the same color family, not so much. Each of these pieces are ones that I adore individually, and ironically are the only hot pink items in my wardrobe.

When I put them together and the slight peplum of the dress paired with the extreme peplum of the top came together, magic happened. I felt so chic, so well styled and best of all, felt amazing in what I was wearing.

While I know the majority of the world is in a polar vortex right now, San Francisco has been pretty mild and we can typically get away with bare legs. Just let this outfit pull you into warmer weather!

I hope you enjoyed and thanks so much for experimenting with me!
