Nothing to Wear | Shades of Grey

Nordstrom BP. shades | Zara top & skirt

The snow-covered posts are back! The Northeast has been experiencing quite a winter lately, including this monster snowstorm that I fortunately missed while in Miami. Needless to say I was not prepared for these arctic temperatures. As expected, I have recovered my dark winter outfits beginning with this grey monochrome look. These pieces are part of my huge post-holiday shopping spree, especially at Zara. It's honestly impossible for me to resist their winter clearance.

For this outfit, I was aiming to create a mix of athleticism, edge, and femininity. While this skirt's ruffle adds the obvious girly touch, its most interesting aspect is the asymmetry. Why not create the high-low effect from left to right? I loved the effect of this skirt so much that I also bought it in navy (ps. I'm a Zara addict). I also liked this sporty feel of this sweatshirt and its ever-so-relevant statement, "Nothing to Wear". Who else gets this feeling every day while choosing what to wear? It's quite a strange situation. I chose this top to toughen up the more classy skirt. It's always fun to blend different styles to create one unique look.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'll talk to you soon!
