The Finishing Touches 
In the final stretch of any project, when the major decisions have been made and the end is in sight, it’s the last little details that matter.  The same goes for picking an outfit.  You wake up in the morning, check the weather, see what’s on your calendar, and ask yourself how you’re feeling.  Then you use all that information and decide on an outfit that captures your mood.  Today I chose a light, loose, sheer sundress to accompany the beautiful weather and try to boost my positivity.  The dark tone and subtle floral print makes me feel feminine and somehow french.  Very Paris in spring.  French women are reputed for their sophistication and dignity, and I might need both to get through my day.  But now comes the finishing touches otherwise known as the accessories.  A colorblock, briefcase inspired bag to remind me that I am a professional and can put all my personal feeling aside.  Last, tan leather, peep toe ankle boots covered in an endless array of slashing cutouts.  Instead of classic pumps or strappy sandals, my shoes tend to be a little show of rebellion when wearing an otherwise simple or traditional outfit.  A girl has to let her frustration out somehow.

One of a Kind 
Nobody is only one thing.  No matter what the media tells us there isn’t the smart girl, the pretty girl, the sweet girl or the funny girl.  There are only people, and every person is all of those things and more.  Personally, I might have sophisticated taste, excellent planning skills, and be forcefully ambitious but there are other sides to me too.  I can also be accommodating, silly, spontaneous, and go with the flow.  With that in mind, I love this sixties inspired, loose and free wheeling shift dress.  It’s lively green and yellow pattern is a treat for the eyes, and it’s silky soft, woven fabric breaks free from the confines of my more structured ensembles.  Paired with black, peep toe ankle booties this outfit lets people know you don’t always need to have rules.  Finally, a matching mint green clutch covered in tiny gold beads shows how complex you are, and how nobody really knows you unless they look closer at the details.
