A Little Time, So Much Glam

I used to work in an office that only allows wearing black or white. I worked there for five years before changing job to my current one, so you can imagine my euphoria! After five years wearing only black and white, now I can wear any colors that I want! Suddenly this girl burst out like a rainbow with any colors imaginable. Nowadays I opt not wearing black and white if I could help it because I'm done wearing them so much for five years already!

Still, black and white is a classic combination that cannot go wrong. The color combination always looks right, and I like to add sprinkles of cheerful color to spice things up.

This Kate Spade Cedar Street Elissa in geranium red is really a good investment because it's sturdy, it can carry a lot, and the bold, unusual red color adds a pop of fun to almost any outfit. I added lots of accessories to complet this look: a cheerful braid necklace, orange leaves earrings, stack of colorful bracelet, a Hello Kitty crystal bangles, and deep purple wedges.

One might think that this look requires a lot of prep work. Actually it's a quick dash to throw on the top, the wrap skirt, and the ruffled jacket. Then I just randomly grab any accessories with multicolor hues to finish it off. Accessorizing takes much less time to me compared to outfit combining, because you don't need to be very precise. You can make mistakes and it won't be too noticeable. And when wearing accessories, you will look as if you have put a lot of thought to your look, when in fact, you spent no more than five minutes to grab some things from your jewelry drawer.
Meanwhile, where have I been during the long month hiatus from the blogging world? Hubby and I went for a two-week trip to Europe. Indonesia is not a Moslem country, but Islam is the majority religion of the people here. Thus, eventhough we have various religious holidays around the year, Idul Fitri is the biggest one when most of businesses shut down for a week or more. We always try to use this time of the year to do some traveling. Last year we went to Italy. This year, we made a trip around Bavarian Germany, Berner Oberland Switzerland, and Salzkammergut Austria. It was a wonderful trip, many pictures taken of the maginificent views!

    I love the way you infused that pop of color through your accessories. And I also had a friend that could only wear BLACK (just black...not even white!) for years to work. She was working at the Fendi furniture showroom and they only allowed employees to be in black at all times. I never thought about what kind of psychological toll that could have and it is so restricting, creatively speaking.

    Angie from reasons to dress, thanks for joining the linkup!
