“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different”
– Coco Chanel
With Spring in full swing and wedding season starting to creep into our weekend routine I begin to imagine how to step outside the box with my fashion choices. As the weather warms, sometimes I find myself in a fashion rut. Of course, I want to look nice but the Alabama heat can become miserable at times and I end up an outfit repeater.
This year will be different, while I will most definitely don my favorite dresses and jumpsuits on multiple occasions instead of pairing them with similar accessories, I will be switching it up.
For example, when one thinks “cocktail” you typically pair gold/metallic/silver jewelry or shoes but I have decided to try a more summer inspired look. Take a look at these gorgeous wooden earrings, personally I believe they scream summer. To tie the wooden earrings with the cocktail dress I paired my favorite leopard print sandals. I find they compliment each other well and help add a summer vibe to the electric blue cocktail dress.
A little tip: If you can make your earrings and shoes pair nicely together the rest of the outfit will fall into place. So find your favorite earring and shoe combination and start pairing with your favorite dresses, jumpsuit, and more.
