My American friends and readers, hope you all had a fantastic Independence day celebrations. I surely had a blast enjoying a quite day by the beach with the family. I am not a big swimmer or a water person, except for may be sitting by the pool with my feets dipped, so clearly I wasn’t wearing swimwear to go into the ocean. None the less, had a great time people watching, making sand castles and just watching the waves kiss the white sands as they swept in and out bringing and taking in numerous sea shells.
Outfit: Skirt- WHBM; Top -The Limited( Sold out. Loving this and this); Sun glasses- Gucci.
Now onto my first unofficial “client” story to be filed under the ” Work it with me ” series. My very good friend Ms.P tapped me to help her decide on some outfits and pack for a weekend trip. It was as impromptu as it could have been. Weekend trips are meant to be short and easy and thus keeping that in mind, I picked pieces that could be mixed and matched as she would have liked to at that moment. I left her with a set of pairing suggestions to use. Shopping a different closet can be a lot of fun and quite eye-opening as well. To say my friend was surprised would be an understatement. Of the 8 pieces I pulled out, 4 of them had tags intact and my friend had no clue they were hanging in her closet. I believe I had as much fun putting together these outfits as did my friend.
To start off with, I chose two summery crop pants. One yellow and one white, that she could pair with multiple different colored tops. The four tops I chose, were keeping in mind that she would be out and about the whole day touring places in the summer heat and humidity. So I chose, lightweight fabrics like pure cotton, silk or easy lace tops. The crop pants being cotton would help beat the heat and she could fold it up into long bermudas if need be. The first photo shows the whole set. The extra shorts I chose for her, was just in case one of the lighter ones got dirty. The floral printed maxi dress is so in trend and classy enough to be worn for a nice dinner with open toe sandals and light jewelry. The second photo shows the pairings I chose for the white crop pants. The yellow pants in the third photo were a perfect fit with the printed top that had shades of yellow in them. The fourth photo shows that, if my friend chose to, she could potentially make 8 outfits out of these 6 pieces and that would be plenty for a weekend trip.
Read below what my friend had to say about this whole experience:
When I first approached Willfully Elegant to help me choose outfits to wear over a weekend, I was afraid that she’d look in my closet and say there was nothing to choose from. Instead, to my immediate surprise, she was able to chose 5-6 different outfit combinations in 10 minutes! In addition, the outfits she chose were combinations that I would have never put together myself. Thank you, Willfully Elegant. Something that I would have pondered for hours and hours, you were able to quickly do in fantastic and elegant style!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend. Cheers.
