Autumn is here.
It's raining and cooler in Seattle. YAY!!! NO MORE WILD FIRES AND UNHEALTHY AIR.
I am feeling non-neutrals, colour-mixing, and pattern-mixing more than ever. Soothing, comforting, puts me in a better mood, and gives me energy.
I LOVE remixing my old stuff with the new. It's similar to my obsession with "zero food waste" at home and being creative with leftovers. I don't like wasting my older wardrobe items. So I constantly remix them with the new.
As I add new items, I first work out how things will match and complement one another before I commit to the purchase. That way I can mix and match till my heart's content, and almost everything works with everything. It's sport to me and a highly enjoyable puzzle process.
My wardrobe is very colourful, but the colours are thought out and controlled. It might not look like it, but there is a lot of colour discipline in my wardrobe and style. I am very deliberate about keeping certain colours in, and keeping others out.
I add brights, blues and white to my earth tones so that they don't look too earthy ;)
My urban style is about: TOPPERS, SNEAKERS/HI-TOPS and CROSSBODY BAGS, so I milk it.
- New $9 guitar strap that works with old burgundy and orange Furlas, and old sneakers/hi-tops. New complement!
- Old designer striped zipper track top worn with trendy sailor jeans. The glitzy gold zipper makes me smile. And I like mixing stripes and checks!
- New Sherlock Holmes checked raincoat with fun orange trim that I got on deep discount from sustainable and ethical Boden. Impeccable quality. A classic with a kick. All the dark bits are navy, not black. Worn it all week!
My style is not athletic, but my love for sneakers and stripes gives it a sporty touch. I like to mix sporty with luxe.
WFH, and doing the usual errands around town with Sam in tow. Seattle life still very restricted. Masked up as soon as we leave the front door.
Thanks for looking :) xo
