I’ll be honest with you guys, when it comes to Fashion Weeks, my outfits don’t look much different than they do most other days. Over the years I have learned that to me personally, it is all about feeling like myself and not about wearing the most extravagant look that feels like a costume or a little girl playing dress-up in mom’s closet. When I feel comfortable, I have a much easier time with smalltalk and meeting new people because I feel more confident in who I am. Does that make any sense?
That’s why, for Milan Fashion Week, I decided to go with what I do best: basics mixed with a statement bag or shoes. Red velvet mules, to be exact. One of my favorite recipes for a winning look is to stick with timeless closet staples (=jeans, blouse, t-shirt or knits) and dress them up with either a bag or pair of heels to catch the eye. Easy enough, right?
In this case, I went with comfortable mom jeans, a slightly oversized white blouse, pulled back hair, black sunglasses and a pop of red on my feet. Oh, and my new Chanel baby. A souvenir from an amazing trip with the brand to Cannes 2 weeks ago and the first CC addition to my bag collection. But more on that later this week…
