And so it continues with the long cardigan affair. This one, though, is in one of my current favorite colors - fuchsia pink. If you've followed my blog, even if only for a brief time, you've probably noticed that I adore color and I'm not afraid of wearing it! I love my blacks, browns, grays and neutrals, but if I see a top in tangerine orange or some other unapologetically bright shade, I pounce. I've realized over the years that many people, including the stylish and fashion forward, shy away from color. For some, it's a purely aesthetic choice. For others, it's an issue of feeling uncomfortable standing out.

I know everyone has their own interpretation of fashion; to me, fashion is exploring who you are, using clothes to help create an image of the person you aspire to be. Every single day, fashion allows me to dress like the kind of person I want to become, and I think this is why I wear color, because I want to be someone who isn't afraid to stick out a little and who embraces color in her life... especially fuchsia pink!

Pink and leopard print are pretty much a combo made in heaven. And OF COURSE your blouse below is Madewell. Isn't everything good and awesome these days coming from Madewell?!

I really like the leopard/fuchsia combo! It's so fresh and fun :)
And fashion is definitely about expressing yourself without speaking. It's such an awesome way to say how feel or what your interests are... like, today, I feel like a grandma :P

I hope you're enjoying NYC and can't wait to see photos and read stories!

XXo,
