Mother Nature is not on my side.Recently, the weather and the stress from unpacking/moving has gotten exhausting. (Yes, the weather has gotten exhausting. Rain and cool, then sunny and hot, then cloudy and mild- seriously, can Mother Nature make up her mind?) Personally, I am feeling defeated when I have to get dressed in the morning.
Recently, I’ve been dressing for DC weather still…NYC weather is NOT DC weather. DC is 98 and humid, NYC is like 85 and relatively muggy, but not a swamp like DC is. Between you and me, the struggle is so real. Side note: don’t wear black-all black when the sun is beaming down on you in DC-swamp like setting, hot, sticky= gross. Rookie mistake.
But I can win the battle she’s been fighting with me. Well, not really. I went out earlier today in jeans and a tee for running errands, and I was crying to myself “This is such a stupid mistake- who wears full length jeans when the temperature is 85 degrees?” Clearly, I hadn’t won the battle.
Redemption: dinner date. The Mr. rang and asked “Want to do dinner outside?” This was my redemption- this was where I was going to beat Mother Nature.
How did black and green become the best? Easy. I knew the heat/humidity is not a prevalent in NYC than in DC. No swampy feelings, the humidity is less (just look at my hair!), and there’s always some sort of breeze.
So how did I win against Mother Nature that date night?
- Just throw on all black and add a light-weight green scarf.
- How did black and green become the best? Because they are black and green. Black base, green accent.
- A base color, then build with accessories. And because of the light-weight wide-leg pants, and black tank, I think I’ve got a solid base here.
- A green scarf? Well any scarf, really, but this green is so light and airy, the combo wouldn’t be the same without.
Outfit Formula. Base foundation + Accent piece= smart. Why didn’t I think of this combo sooner?! Oh, and yes, for those who noticed: that is DMB (Dave Matthews Band) all over. I’m a huge fan- been so since I was 13. Haven’t missed a summer concert in… wow… 14 years. I think I’ve seen 20 shows too…wow…but last summer? So smart, DMB- they had scarves for sale. Naturally I had to. Thus black and green became the best.
Inspiration came from… a passerby in Grand Central Station. She wasn’t wearing a green scarf, but it was enough to give a black and green inspiration. How black and green became the best? The random passerby in Grand Central Station. Thank you, random girl.
