Three Things To Try This Weekend

Three Things To Try This Weekend

The weekend seems to me a great time to experiment with our style- a little extra time, or perhaps an occasion out of the ordinary offer reason to try something small that could have a big impact on refreshing our style. 

1. Put a flower on it!

On what you ask? On whatever you want! Pin it to your coat jacket, wear it with a ribbon around your neck, or pin it to your belt. Unlike it was in your teenage years, in this case where you blossom is up to you. I've spent the last two weeks with a white flower pinned to some part of my clothing at all times and I've never felt better. 

 

2. Switch up your lipstick

Ursula Le Guin talked about playing with lipstick as a small way to participate in the beauty game. Take a page out of Joan Smalls' playbook and experiment with a bold hue! (If you're looking for a new lipstick, try Ilia Beauty or RMS Beauty, two companies committed to using pure ingredients in their makeup).

3. Put two things (or more) you've never worn together in the same outfit.

Within our closet, we tend to put the same things together. Rather than buying something new, it can be fun to experiment with different combinations of what we already have. Sharon Stone taught us that by pairing a Gap white shirt (from her husband's closet- extra points!!) with a Vera Wang skirt to The Oscars in 1998. This is, first, proof that a white collared shirt is in fact the most versatile thing we women can own and, second, evidence that there are no rules but the ones we make when it comes to the clothes we choose to wear.

 

Tell me what you end up trying!
