Although we’re almost at the tailend of wedding season, I thought I’d share two very different looks my friend Ana and I recently wore to a coworker’s wedding. As a guest, if you don’t already have something to wear in your closet, putting together an outfit can be almost as daunting as the bride’s search for the perfect white dress. Ana and I spent countless hours scouring pictures of dresses on the internet before we found “the one.” But when looking for something to wear, there are a few very important things to keep in mind, because you obviously don’t want to be the one who shows up, trying to upstage the bride…
It’s always hard getting back into a routine after a long holiday weekend. Us Kims, we really know how to live it up… lots of long leisurely naps, dancing the night away at our friend’s wedding (ahem, 9pm!), catching up on Silicon Valley & Superstore, and a TON of pajama time.
We’re a wild breed, after all. ;-)
As we head into fall, I’m alway excited to see which colors will be the “IT” colors of the season. One shade in particular that has caught my eye is olive green. Finding a match to complement your skin tone can sometimes be tricky due to the yellow undertones in this shade, but the key is to pair it with other contrasting items like a cream sleeveless blazer or denim jacket so that it does not end up looking like a JROTC uniform (reminiscent of my high school drill team days. True story.)
When I can’t figure out what to wear, I always come back to black. A basic striped tee and a shirtdress are my trusty pieces when the rest of my options seem blah.
