Playing With A Spring Color

I am also a believer that a look can be “normal” and still be fashion.  Hilary Kennedy 

Some great fashion advice from Hilary Kenned, TV Host, Influencer, Blogger

My note:  I have the Talbots SLIM ANKLE JEANS - COOL MINT and have never been sure what to wear on top. Black sure looks good good and provides a slimming appearance.  See more photos on Hillary's blog - inspiring.


Hilary: I don’t know what happened between the 1950’s and now, but somewhere along the way fashion became a little weird.

We went from beautiful dresses and pearls to the idea that the stranger our outfit is, the more fashionable it must be.

On the Right Track

I disagree.  I might play it a little “safe” and not take fashion risks all the time, but I’d still rather wear something that is flattering and classic than something bizarre in the name of fashion.

For anyone out there like me: You DON’T have to dress weird to be stylish. You don’t have to pile on 52 bracelets or wear your hair in a crazy style…you don’t have to wear fishnets with a sundress or harem pants with a crop top.  You can wear a basic black shirt and colored skinnies and call it a day. And while you’re at it, classic jewelry will take you further, too. I can’t tell you how obsessed I am with my “H” monogram necklace from Miriam Merenfeld and my grandmother’s vintage watch. No spiked bracelets and sixteen layer chandelier earrings required.

Besides, when you’re on the go and have to make it from work to happy hour to dinner with friends, you don’t want to have to change clothes along the way. Something simple and classic will work for all three; no changing clothes in your car required.

So, just as I am a huge believer in saving your hard earned money for the pieces that will go the distance (i.e. Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Van Cleef,) I am also a believer that a look can be “normal” and still be fashion. I’ll leave the unconventional style to Amanda Bynes and Lady Gaga.
