According to Elle’s forecast for spring style, (apart from crop tops and wide leg pants)(woohoo!) the season is riddled with embellishments, fringe, transparent details and florals. My inner hippie cannot contain her excitement. After quite a bit of mockery from friends over the years, I have come to terms with the fact that I am somewhat of an ornamentation enthusiast. Maybe it’s just the proverbial tree in me trying to decorate myself? As I have slowly started to collect what some might call “kitschy” attire, I can’t help but be ecstatic when I see skirts like this or one of these practical little numbers. Don’t get me wrong, I love the minimal look (my basic uniform of black, white and neutrals is what I, more often than not, fall back on), but there are just those days that you think “more is more.” As this terrible weather persists, I find myself gravitating towards ruffles, tassels, fringe, beads, and pom poms as a form of comfort. And while Kerry has used choice words such as ‘gypsy’ to describe some of my outfits, it really doesn’t faze me all that much. I’m completely distracted from the haters and the cold by all the wonderful garnishes on my clothing.
