Orange for Audrey

Welcome back! Today's outfit is a little bit different for me seeing as I don't usually wear orange or leopard-- but I've never been afraid of trying new things. Hello! orange is definitely one of the biggest colors of this season seeing as the 70's have come back with a vengeance. While there are those that call leopard print a "neutral" I 100% believe it should be dressed with caution. There is a tendency to make it go a little overboard and that's never a good thing. I toned down this look with a basic trench from Topshop and flat black chelsea boots which gave the whole thing a bit of a "London Calling" feel, which is one of my favorite eras of dressing, btw.

I accessorized the look with a pair of oversized Celine sunglasses which made the whole thing very old Hollywood movie star. Someone who I consider to be my absolute favorite style icon is Audrey Hepburn- who would have turned 86 yesterday. While I didn't do this on purpose, I couldn't help but feel like Audrey in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" with those sunnies and trench on (I have seen almost all of her films). Seriously could the trench and sunnies not be on Audrey Hepburn in a 1960's film? I think so. Happy Birthday Audrey.

Lately there is nothing more I love than a culotte. Even in my post last week for Festival Fashion I was wearing culotte shorts. I mean it's gotten a little out of hand. There's just something so versatile about culottes and I love how they can be dressed up or dressed down and worn for cooler weather or warm weather. For this look I chose black which is obviously the most flattering. I also do love the white and pastel color culottes I've been seeing, although they are definitely harder to pull off- especially for someone who is on the shorter side. I am pretty tall but chose to wear a high platform with these because it gives the pant an extra oomph. I would recommend doing the same for all my shorter sisters out there. There are many different types of shoes that look good with culottes, but in general anything with a platform or with a stacked heel will go great with a pant like this. 

For the rest of the look-- I paired a Marc by Marc Jacobs lunchbox-shaped red crossbody for a pop of color and a little funk (it's holographic!). I have my old favorite Rayban clubmasters on that always seem to make their way back into my sunglass rotation. The cropped sweater that says Don't Panic! is from Marc by Marc Jacobs as well. I love it- everyone just chill out and enjoy this little OOTD ;)

Below is my "Don't Panic" playlist for some good vibes. Rationale- Fast Lane is my absolute favorite song of the week. By popular demand -- I'm going to incorporate music in all my posts now :) You guys can follow my music updates and playlists on Spotify (playlist on main page) and Soundcloud.
