I love girls who wear bright colors and patterns and just make a statement when they walk out of their homes. I was kinda one of them awhile ago but as I grew and learned more about myself I have learned that I was wearing bright colors to be like everyone else when I truly just love a piece to be more unique and to speak for itself. Hence the lack of color as some would put it. Don’t get me wrong if I see a piece that is unique and colorful I want it and I would totally wear it.

I have learned that I don’t have to make the colorful printed kind of statement I can make a statement with classic cuts, neutral colors, a great piece, and a pair of heels that says look at me.

This outfit made me think of that because of the bright white vest and the caged Tory heels. They take a tank and a pair of jeans and take it to the next level. These heels were the very first nice heels I have ever bought (I also saw them at Nordstrom Rack recently!!) I love that they take femininity and make it a little more hard core. The sides are all lace-y but the caged front makes it tougher. Which make a statement on my feet. They aren’t your normal everyday heels. The sleeveless pure white vest makes another statement because well I did wear all dark colors but I love a sleeveless vest/trench because it takes any outfit that one step closer to cooler. I also love the clean lines and the crisp white color. I love great classic pieces and that is why I shop at Banana Republic because they always have those pieces for you!

Do you have some pieces that are in the more neutral family that you consider a statement piece?
Or do you have a piece that just makes you feel like all eyes on you for a great reason?

Happy Wednesday! Who else is happy for a four day work week!!
