Finding a common thread for my blog has been my main focus for months. Its one of those things that has had my full attention and has allowed me to not be able to be fully satisfied with the website. Back and forth, I detailed every little thing I saw other bloggers doing and try to reinvent it and make it my own. Ultimately, I learned how to develop my own ideas and ways to make the website more enticing, visually appealing and me. To draw in my creative energy and to recognize the holiday, I decided to chose the theme of green based outfits for March's Fashion Commentary section of the Indigo Stop.
It is almost the end of March and I am completely flustered ,yet accomplished. My goal to present nothing but green based looks has been achieved and I couldn't be any prouder. As soon as I came up with the idea, the hunt for green was on. Within this hunt I learned a little bit more about the color green. For one, it is one of the most versatile color and can project various feelings. Two, no ever expect you to wear green. Green is my current color of exploration and to me it represents thriving or growth. When one thinks of green they make think of the trees or the earth sprouting, some may even think of money and its constant growth. Each look for this month represents progress and strengthening of something much grand. March is for the build up of Spring. March is the time to take in your first monthly reflections and allow your ideas to sprout into something more.
When understanding that green was going to be this month's theme, I had an idea of this classic emerald look. Something that this fly girl would walk into this 50's diner and even the prestige would have to admire her style , appeal and attitude.
One staple piece that I am currently coveting is a turtle neck. My end of the year goal is to have every color turtle neck in my closet. I found this emerald one from Pretty Little Things, which is potentially one of my favorite online shops. The shirt fits like a glove and is a cute crop top that can go with almost anything. For this look, I decided to go a different route for the bottoms. Instead of going with the obvious match up such as a pattern background or denim jeans, I wanted to mix up the look with a trend that a lot of people haven't seen yet. 2018 is opening the door for all forms of denim. Mom jeans are making a great return, denim on denim is more appealing than a separate piece and we are finally letting go of the denim skinny jeans. I decided to search for the perfect denim skirt. Originally, I wanted a regular mini skirt, but I chose the midi skirt route. A mid skirt is a new way to bring a little bit of vintage to your outfit, without looking like a costume. Finding the midi skirt, was a tad bit difficult but I finally found it online. On SheIn, I found this form fitting denim high split skirt. Though, the skirt looks uncomfortably tight, it's material is surprisingly stretchy. My only advice for this skirt is to purchase a larger size due the material's sensitivity. Closing the look is a little find that I discovered in my local Forever21. These shoes were sitting lonely in the corner and I decided to grab them and test them out. I fell in love with them immediately! Thus closing this vintage green look.
Having a blog means that, I not only have to focus on my style but the style of everything I put out there. That includes planning outfits based off of locations and sometimes color. What are your favorite colors and how would you style them?
