As long as the temperature hovers at 50 degrees or warmer, I’m okay with spring coming a little later this year. With a glass half full approach, I can look to those pieces in my wardrobe that I don’t feel I’ve fully taken advantage of wearing in the colder months, and give them one extra opportunity to feel amazing in them before they get tucked away for the season. As I’ve gotten older and acquired a taste for particular brands, I’ve noticed that they always look better together. It’s unified my look, and let the eye beholding them rest on consistency of shape and design.

I’ve been feeling very uninspired lately, both in what I wear, as well as what I’ve seen so far on the runway for fall 2016. Perhaps this weather has created a bit of a style rut for me, as I heard that this past weekend was the coldest that it’s been in New York City in 100 years, but on the other hand, there is quite a bit of change brewing in the fashion industry overall. Everything changes and evolves, and if you don’t move with it…you may get left behind. For me, I’ve been more thoughtful about my coverage of fashion week, slowing things done for less, but more meaningful features.
What do you want to know, that will have the most impact on your style choices? Naturally, it’s the colors, the trends, the key, most important looks and quirky little details that you can fold into your existing wardrobe and pick and choose to make it truly your own. I saw this green sweater at Banana Republic’s spring preview in September, and it made such an impression that when it hit the stores, I immediately picked it up. The cool thing about that is that 1) it was 100% affordable and 2) I’ve never owned anything like it, with the color being a first for me.
Guess what? It just worked – I received so many compliments as I went about the day, and felt truly great in the piece, knowing that I can find something that fits well and I love, and doesn’t come near breaking the bank. Good style doesn’t have to cost a lot, and sometimes stepping a touch out your comfort zone can have some incredible results.
