When All Else Fails

Leandra Medine | March 9, 2012
Acne jacket, Dolce and Gabanna jeans, but these will do, Organic by John Patrick blouse, Givenchy sandals, Asos thick cuffs, thin cuffs, Made her Think double ring, Reece Hudson clutch. I can’t speak for you but the last few weeks have found me feeling massively uninspired. I’ll blame it on March the same way I do September when the reverse of this uninspiration rears its head. The fact of the matter is, I’ve reached that seasonal point when sweaters make me want to kill myself, and it’s too soon to wholeheartedly indulge in the crisp airiness of summer wears. As it happens, this particular circumstance keeps me going to back to a classic denim, utility, ambiguous leather combination infused by a little bit of white to perhaps help curb the appetite at hand. It’s a fairly good when-all-else-fails option that can easily see new life should you exercise a wear-it-til-you-smell policy by the inclusion of an accessory that pops, say one not unlike the red Reece Hudson motoclutch shown and some sleek accessories that don’t read contrived or overachieving, just plain old warrior freak. White pants deserve more play time pre, post Labor Day and these particular Givenchy sandals have been on my mind for a little while. Figured throwing them into the collage may satiate that thirst, you know how it goes.

    I feel the EXACT SAME WAY! February and March can be absolute torture. Luckily, we've had a few rays of sunshine here and there where I could sneak out some spring pieces and pretend for a day. I've been spending these last couple months working on my fitness, buffing my skin, and eating healthier so once spring is here I'll be ready to play!

    Awww don't hate on March. It's a good month! The daffodils are in bloom. To be fair, I'm in Tennessee and I'm sure my March is quite different from your March. Either way, I like these pieces. I still can't wear white, except for under-shirts. If it's exposed I will get a trace of every food ever on it.

    I agree with everything you said! I feel very uninspired as well and
    I would SO love to jump in my Summer clothes and put on the beach
    sandals. Winter lasts too long, I'm also tired of all the sweaters and layers 😛

    I know, march seems so boring, it's a season where winter sort of drizzles away and it's too cold for anything cute but to warm for your usual comfy sweater. Love these harder edgier looks on you!

    You can never go wrong with these classics.

    I completely understand not feeling super inspired this time of year. It's so gray and blah! It's not glittery winter anymore, or fresh spring yet. It's that in between when you're so damn tired of wearing layers of sweaters, cardigans, and scarves.

    To keeping stylish while waiting for inspiration!

    🙂 Ewa
