After a long day at work, the sun was still shining at 7pm and felt absolutely glorious, yet the opportunistic moments for photos was quickly depleting. As I laid a series of kisses on Fashion Pulse Kitty’s little head and ran out the door with Fashion Pulse Hubby to snap a few pics, I didn’t realize until later, but my shadow tagged along to say hello!
The look that I pulled together today thrived on clean, smooth, well-defined lines, found in seamless, foundational garments and the color blocking in my dress, all the way through to the quilting on my bag, with precision and symmetry being key elements. I like to keep the balance of color largely black and white, with a pop of blue and faux croc texture from the bag, partnered with a surprise flash of metallic via the gunmetal hue of the pumps and crystal shine of my earrings. Maintaining a similar, linear shape throughout my look was essential to its completion, and even though the dress was already erring on the futuristic side, the metallic pumps solidified it in that direction. I love that the quilted pattern continued, albeit in miniscule form, onto the shoulder strap, which provided extra style AND comfort.
