You know those pieces that we have stuck in the back of our closets? The ones that we couldn’t live without, but then never quite figured out how to wear? Yeah, I thought you would. Well for me, that “piece” are these amazing floral pants. I saw them when I was working at my old job and I simply had to have them. Honestly, how could anyone pass these up? However, when I got home, nothing quite worked. I tried t-shirts, tunics, stripes, basically anything I could even think of. Then I remembered this Brandy Melville Kimono I had purchased last summer before I went on vacation and then stuffed in the back of my closet. After that, this outfit basically styled itself. The high-contrast floral goes perfectly with the burgundy of the overlay, so I wore a simple silk camisole as a neutral in the colorful look. I then decided I wanted a pair of heels to add some femininity to this edgy look and these wedges worked perfectly and of course some layered necklaces, help bring a little more interest to the top of the outfit. I am loving this colorful look, especially since it proves to my boyfriend that not all impulse buys go unloved.
