{fit to be tied: follow up}

Standard

In response to my post from earlier this month:
{fit to be tied}

Ladies and gentlemen, I did it.

I rocked a necktie, for an entire day.

It was great!
Actually, I think for the first time in my life I was jealous of men and their tie-wearing ease.
Fleeting jealousy, it was.

So here was my Saint Patrick’s Day 2012 outfit:

Slightly awkward.. Green beer in hand would help this picture tremendously.

Keys to rocking a necktie confidently:
1) Go bold, go bright: choose a tie/blouse/blazer which is a color you wear well, or a in traditionally feminine color
2) Dress it up: over do the accessories which scream you (in my case, hair-clip + statement ring + bangles)
3) Details, people: I chose this top over a seersucker pink button down because of the plaid cuffs and collar. Wearing the tie at a looser fit also made this a winner for me.

Bottom line: I WILL BE WEARING TIES.
And I’d love to work some bow ties in there too, if I could find the perfect pattern.

Until next time, get out there and try something new! You might just like it.

I think for today, for tomorrow and for the rest of my days,
I need to repeat this. Over and over.
Because the ability to gel just doesn’t come as easy as it once did.

I do believe that we have the choice of lens in which we perceive things.
And I wholeheartedly want my lens to be rose colored.

So here’s to surfing. Xox.
