BLACK FOR SPRING? YES!

Apr 27th, 2017

Spring time in Portland could be tricky but also kind of fun in terms of what to wear because of weather variances from day to day. On the street, you will see people wearing a t-shirt, a jacket or sweater, and even a winter coat. The upside of that is you can choose from your entire closet to create outfits.

People often put black color clothes away when it comes to spring. For me, wearing black in spring is perfectly fine as long as you find ways to light it up or add colors. In my outfit today, I used a colorful scarf to add vibrance to the overall look.

3 ESSENTIAL BAGS

A dear tango friend challenged me to identify “3 essential bags”. I gladly accepted her challenge and am happy now hear your thoughts about this post.  What a great idea! Hopefully this will delight my friend and, all of you, my dear readers.

The 3 essential bags I suggest:

1. A tote bag:
As an example, this blue Ferragamo tote bag is one of my favorite totes.  Generally, I prefer single use bag but since this strap is removable so I am fine with it. After all, you get to use the bag in two different ways.  A tote serves many occasions: business meetings, conferences, everyday go-to-work bag…etc. The key for you is to watch the ratio between the tote size and your body size for good visuals.

Below are three tote bags I like at different price points. (Images are clickable.)

If you can choose only one thing for the entire summer to wear, what would be that one thing for you?

This pretty black and white floral trouser jumpsuit takes comfort to a whole new level! If I could spend the entire of summer wearing just the one thing, this would be “THE THING”.  In addition to great fabric choice, comfort and great fit,  I love that this jumpsuit is hard to wrinkle.   I can sit, slouch or even twist myself into a pretzel without being afraid of those pesky little wrinkles.
