Last weekend was fantastic, for the first time in a long long time, I actually had some spare time to relax. The weather was a lot milder too, so I jumped at the opportunity to wear shorts without having to worry about wearing tights underneath to keep warm. Personally, I think tights and stockings are great, especially the interesting ones that come in different colours, textures or patterns, but I do find them a little less flexible in terms of pairing with a wide variety of skirts, shorts, dresses or shoes (particularly peep toes). Given the nice weather, I wanted to create a really clean look, so I decided on a white combination.
Shirt: Anthropologie (great styles here and here); Jacket: Zara Trf (great styles here and here); Shorts: Asos; Earrings: Amrita Singh; Watch: DKNY (similar); Clutch: Forever New (similar, similar); Shoes: Mollini (similar, wedge style here)
I love whites but to be honest, I hardly wear them for a number of reasons. To me, whites are very high maintenance, keeping it pristine and then cleaning it afterwards is a bit of a hassle. There were so many times that I overlooked this colour, because of the anticipated care and preservation requirements. However, I think white is incredibly powerful in terms of projecting a super clean, elegant and sometimes angelic look. After all, this is the sacred colour that has been worn and adored by brides from all over the world and throughout the centuries.
To avoid looking like a big white marshmallow, I thought it would be nice to also pack in some fun colours from the inside, and just let it peep out at the edges of this white ensemble. Kind of like a fancy present wrapped in a layer of delicate white paper =P
Winter can be such a serious and intense season, "lighten" it up with some unconventional colours. For my Northern hemisphere friends, I hope white will be that "breath of fresh air" as you head towards the warmer weather!
