It’s Friday and I, for one, couldn’t be more pleased!
I am heading down to Naples to visit one of my very best friends and we are going to look at wedding dresses! (There might be a post about it!)
I spent a while brainstorming and researching inspiration for today’s post and I have decided to go with a Five Minute Update since it’s been a while and they are fun!
So buckle up, because here. we. go.
1. Ombre hair.
I know what you are thinking. But it looks like the roots have grown out too long… If it’s done right, it looks cool, a little edgy and definitely sassy. And who can’t stand to have a little sassy transfused into their look?
Strawberry blonde to ombre…
This next one is brown all the way to blonde. It’s extreme but I think it works.
Celebrities who did an awesome job with ombre. I am obsessed with both of these ladies — they both have a unique perspective and you can see it in their fashion.
Here’s my friend E rocking it. Proving that regular folk can look awesome ombre as well as celebrities and models!
2. Monochromatic Outfits!
I was inspired to try this the first time I bought a red skirt and realized I had a red blouse the exact same color. Together they made a sleek, cohesive outfit. The examples I found really show the range of ways you can make monochromatic your own. The secret is to match the shades… texture can be different and should be for interest. And if you feel like it’s boring, you can always add spicy shoes!
Loving her shoes! (below)
Olive is so cool. I think it looks great on everyone and adds a faint menswear edge.
Bold shoes? Look no further. Black and white are classic but there’s a universe of colors out there for the bold and brave amongst us.
(I am not judging, I sit here typing this post in a black and white outfit!)
Is there a stronger word than obsessed for how I feel about grey? I stalk grey. And monochromatic grey. WHAT! I love it. The example below with the red llp looks so classic and refined.
Can’t escape the oxblood.
I have been thinking about booties as we have been getting geared up for fall.
I love them! SO MUCH!
They make every outfit cooler. They come in every shape and size. In every style.
Here’s a sampling. Find a way to add them to your next outfit. Here’s some killer examples:
These booties can be bold or they can be neutral. Find a pair that gives YOU confidence. And strut.
I love edgier booties like the ones below, You can pair them with jeans and a T and be DONE. I love outfits that are so straightforward.
Straight obsessed with the Sole Society booties below. I am hoping for a sale soon because I think they will be incredibly versatile for all fall and into winter. I also think they are kind of barrier breaking… meaning they are appropriate for almost any setting on almost any person (I am talking to you moms out there!). Go wild for booties!
That concludes our five minutes! Go forth and be fabulous!
