Fauxionable Outfit – Almost Spring!

The weather has slowly been getting warmer and flowers are blooming, which means it’s almost Spring! I couldn’t resist wearing this tulip print dress that always reminds me of Spring, layered underneath a cashmere turtleneck. I wore this outfit a few weekends ago but the past few days I’ve only been wearing my trench coat and sans scarf. Spring weather is upon us!

Is it almost Spring weather yet where you are? 🙂

Fauxionable Outfit – Feeling Blue

Some days I can’t help but be a little matchy-matchy in my outfits. With the Spring-like weather, a scarf isn’t needed with my turtleneck top but I wanted to interject some colors to my otherwise boring outfit. The bright blue scarf was the perfect antidote to match the other shades of blues in my outfit!

Fauxionable Outfit – ZARA Wool Dress

Thanks to your lovely input to this post, I have decided to keep the ZARA Wool Dress and have returned the skirt. I wore it out for a date night with G and kept it simple by doubling the wool scarf as a shawl when indoors to keep my shoulders warm. My outfit attracted some attention, as we had a visitor while G was taking my outfit shots!

Fauxionable Outfit – Red, My Accent Color

Thank you to all of you who chimed in on the previous post! While I was previously leaning towards keeping the skirt and returning the dress, I think you’ve all convinced me otherwise.

Since moving to London, I’ve been living in my jeans. I also find myself constantly reaching for the same few sweaters or shirts. To remedy that, I decided to wear a skirt instead when G and I went to check out the Picture This exhibit at the British Library. However, some old habits are hard to change. Case in point: my monochrome outfit paired with red accent. (It’s one of my tried & true formula – e.g. see here, here, here, and here.) While blue was my favorite color growing up, red has taken over these days. I find red to be the perfect pop of color against my neutrals, not to mention it’s a festive color for most holidays. (Xmas, New Year’s, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day… you get the drift.) Over the years I’ve amassed quite a number of red accessories to accent my outfits – the perfect red bag, earrings, shoes, and the latest being my wallet. Needless to say, red is my favorite accent color. What is yours?

Fauxionable Outfit – Winter Basics

While I have trips and new additions to my wardrobe that I’d like to blog, I realize it’s been a long while since I’ve posted an outfit. To amend that, here’s an outfit on my Winter basics. The weather has been relatively balmy in London and I’m pleased to say the least! (Sorry, I know most of you in the US are dealing with a cold Winter!) I invested in a new coat during the Black Friday sales in anticipation of the cold but so far it’s been my shield against the wind rather than the cold (which is perfectly fine by me!)
