3 Ways To Turn Bland Into Bold
Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I spent most of my weekend with my family as they were visiting from San Francisco. As i was sharing all my Paris photos with my parents, it dawned on me that my love for this city was inherited from my mom. As I flipped thru photos after photos of the gorgeous architecture and yummy food she couldn’t help but continuously giggle and sigh out of excitement. She described that there was a timeless elegance to the city, and I couldn’t agree more! Hopefully one of these days I will be able to take her to Paris with me, that would be a dream come true!

On the 7th or 8th day in paris I recall sitting in front of my tiny Parisian closet feeling like I had nothing to wear. After a frustrating morning of trying on multiple different skirts and dresses, I finally decided to wear a pair of comfortable stretchy jeans instead. And what I thought would make a bland outfit turned out to be one of my favorites! I’ve come to a conclusion that there are 3 things that will INSTANTLY turn your bland outfit into something bold:
1. Monochrome- This is the easiest way to create a strong outfit without having to try too hard. A monochrome look is incredibly powerful and instantly creates a statement. Whether it be an all red, black, or in this case grey look you could have fun with the different hues of the color and of course texture.
2. A Statement Coat- Top off a simple outfit with a statement coat and within seconds you have transformed something simple into a statement! A good coat can foolproof any outfit, and no one will ever know you had one of those ” I don’t have anything to wear” moments. Here are a few of my favorite coats that i’ve been currently eyeing- this pink Nina Ricci Satin coat , DVF animal print coat, and this Milly lace overlay coat.
3. Bags & Shoes- Sometimes it’s best when you keep the outfit simple and you let the bags & shoes do all the talking! Personally I love outfits that are incredibly simple and have more intricate details with the accessories.
Anyways I hope that these 3 things help you in fool proofing your outfits this week!
HAPPY MONDAY loves!
