IN LIVING COLOR | OOTD by EUREKA CALHOUN

Happy hump day BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!  It's been a hot minute since I blogged an "Outfit Of The Day" or OOTD for two weeks in a row.  Life sometimes has a funny way of trying to taking over.  And somewhere along the way I lost sight of what's important. Like keeping a balance between my day job and passion.  Showcasing my personal style is a cherished outlet and is vital for my mental health and well being.  Sometimes I feel society allows fashion to dedicate a lot of what is "IN" right now. Nowadays the majority of the what you see on instagram as is a lot of muted earth tones and mauve colored outfits thanks to the Kardashian Klan and I allowed myself to fall victim.  Clothes are suppose to be a personal expression of what you want to present visually to the world!  I had to remind myself that personal style is just that.......personal.  So, please allow me to reintroduce myself, IN LIVING COLOR! 

I'm super excited when I find affordable pieces like this Nine West dress because style doesn't always have an expensive price tag.  I wore this dress to church a month ago and decided it needed a "OOTD" moment. The dress is a statement on it's own with the vibrant graphic print and universally flattering silhouette.  For the look I chose a simple cobalt blue clutch, crystal cluster earrings, paired with a studded belt, and my favorite BCBG sandals!  But this dress is versatile and would look great with black wide leg pants or transform the dress into a shirt by tucking it into a leather skirt!  I adore this look and look forward to it making a reappearance at brunch, date night, or a networking event.

MODERN LOVE | MARIMEKKO EDITION by EUREKA CALHOUN

image.jpg

Ankle boots and anything black are style mainstays for me, especially as the chill of January sets in. When Marimekko asked me to create a style story inspired by their new spring/summer collection, I knew exactly how I wanted to feature the "Mel" ankle boots. I fell deeply in LOVE with the modern look and luxe construction of these boots. As I slipped into the most comfortable ankle boots EVER,  my mind started spinning visions of me when I lived in Germany.......because it was bone freezing cold!  I love ankle boots styled with mid calf skirts and sweaters for a "European" chic sense of style!
