I asked my mom if we could do some summer shopping, and gave me a notepad to make a list of some items. I felt scattered again because I wasn't sure where to start. That's when she said, "Make a mood board."
I rejected that instantly.
Then thought about it. Why not? I save pictures on my laptop every day of outfits I love, girls I admire, looks I want to own or people I want to be like. They just sit around in overcrowded folders, waiting for me to open them again and use them as inspiration.
Here are the images I have been saving, and have finally pulled for ideas. It's fun to almost "recreate" yourself sometimes in a daydream, but even more fun to actually get to do it and make it happen.
I admire Rumi so much for her perfectly culminated personal style. I love this dress - it's simple and elegant, and can be used for a variety of situations.
The pencil skirt. My closet is full of gathered printed floral skirts - I'm a little past that now. I'm dying for a bright red or blue pencil skirt to be worn with neutrals, prints, or other bright shades!
A silky short for evening. Great for layering under longer tops, or tucking in blouses for a summery look.
Simple, clean, bold colors.
Simple, draped dresses that speak for themselves in saturated hues.
Here's a shade I'd love to have as a pencil skirt - and I love the simple top.
So in essence, here is what I'm looking for:
- Pencil skirts in bold shades
- Simple solid tanks
- Silky shorts
- Solid dresses (maxi and short)
- Minimal, clean
- Fully saturated colors
- Possible prints (bold color prints, neutral leopard, neutral snakeskin)
- A low-heel/wedge sandal
Shopping happens in a few days - I'll let you know how it goes!
