Gloomy weather is pretty much my least favorite element of winter. There’s nothing worse than days and days of mist or rain, with no glimmer of sunlight or break in the dense, cold clouds. The shop stays chilly all day, and makes it hard to stay motivated to work on anything. All I want to do is cuddle up on my couch with a magazine, a cup of hot tea, cozy socks and some chill music. One positive – the clouds outside open up new photoshoot possibilities, with everything evenly lit and no harsh shadows. I went around the corner to this cool historic apartment building with my photographer friend Lindsay and shot some pics of my outfit.
This skirt is from a designer based in Rome, Italy called DAZE, so I don’t have a link to the exact skirt, but I’m on the hunt for something similar. It has a unique fit – slim on the waist, then almost straight out to either side. The metallic sheen from the silk makes the color look like both copper and blush.
With flats, this is a sweet daytime look, and with strappy shoes, it’s a perfect skirt for going out! Here are a few shoe picks that I love ::
This bobby pin seriously ups my hair game with the copper color and stone! This one is from Lazuli Handcrafted, but here are a few other options ::
A black tank is such a versatile piece to always have at least a million of in your closet. A few that I like besides this LA Made style are – this Blue Life V-neck cami, a cami with a built-in bra for you blessed ladies from shopbop, and (on sale!!) an tank by T by Alexander Wang.
I’ve found a few similar skirts that I think will be just as cute as this DAZE skirt. One from Revolve with an interesting asymmetrical look. A slightly longer version with broad side slits from MINKPINK. Sequins on a blush skirt from Free People. A super metallic from Urban Outfitters. And, a cool pleated version from Lord & Taylor.
But seriously though, I am going to go crazy if this weather keeps up. I’m in need of a tropical vacation where it’s warm, sunny, balmy, and I don’t have to wear anything but a swimsuit and cover-up. Goals! I drew myself a little Gucci garden to try to cheer up, with bugs, flowers and garden snakes, but I have a feeling I’m going to need a major vacation from this winter weather soon.
