PRIMARY COLORS OUTFIT DETAILS:

This weekend was super fun. For her birthday, my friend Alex rented out a private party room in a Chicago hotel with an indoor hot tub, private bar tender, and naturally, shot skis. I may or may not have taken one too many. The bar is called The Bunny Slope! We spent Saturday visiting family and my little nephews, and Sunday we saw Black Panther and shopped for groceries. Black Panther was amazing and you need to see it when you get a chance! There were a lot of strong and smart women in it, which I absolutely loved.
So one of the things I love about being a style blogger is getting the chance to push the boundaries and inspire others to try new color and texture combinations. When I’m putting together my outfits. I always start with the “hero” piece, or the one item that I know I want to wear. For this look, it was surprisingly not the insanely gorgeous burgundy faux fur jacket. It was the velvet skirt!
So I started with this velvet skirt, and knew I wanted to add some color to the mix. The teal velvet skirt and mustard yellow top (which is only $15 btw) looked beautiful together, but somehow made it seem like I was going out to root for Michigan football, haha. My faux fur jacket added the richness and dimension that I wanted, is what really makes the other colors in my outfit pop!
I finished the primary colors outfit with my white booties, which are the perfect shape for elongating your legs. I linked a less expensive version above, too. And Sam Edelman just came out with this gorgeous mule version for spring. If you have short legs like me and tush, choose a bootie or a shoe with 1) a pointed toe and 2) a lighter color. I got that tip from my stylist friend, Marisa (she’s Cloverriot on instagram), who always gives amazing style tips! For some outfit inspiration, I last wore my white booties here, here, and here.
My favorite look from last week was Jess from Not Jess Fashion!
Jess’s look is from one of her London Fashion Week recaps. I love that Jess looks fabulous even in sneakers! Jess is a jetsetter who always puts together colorful and stunning outfits, and her photography is insanely gorgeous. And even though she has boatloads of followers, she is such a nice person! She always takes time to comment on my little piece of the internet, despite her business and fame.
