Style Adjustments

When you’re a spontaneous person just as I am, then it generally doesn’t get you flustered if a friend asks you to grab your handbag and swiftly head out to a (spur-of-the-moment) gig or art show.

Some time ago, this is exactly what happened. It was an occasion to remember—I had enough energy to dance the night away, my body did not feel bushed by lack of sleep, and I finished a work project far earlier than expected. The “i’s” were dotted, and the "t's" were crossed! And, these rather winning types of moments during the week called for an unprompted happy hour of almost anything worthy of a favourite lipstick reapplication!

Even though I had plenty of things to wear, I wasn’t up to completely changing my clothes, so I brought out the pastels. Have you experienced this feeling, when you could really think about your outfit, but you really don’t want to think about your outfit? Of course, you have!  
Since I had no time to waste, I kept the tulle skirt and shoes that I wore earlier in the day, and swapped my blazer and blouse for a teal tank paired with a pastel pullover. I needed accessories and wore a statement necklace. Although, at first I had on a seafoam-beaded necklace, I switched to this ivory fashion piece. I did buy a couple of art pieces, which I will likely show at a later date.

This outfit was fine for the event, because I was determined that it was going to be just that … fine! There was no need to second-guess myself, and no time for messing about. So, I confidently dressed partly summer and mildly autumn, which worked since a cool summer night breeze graced us with its presence.

Sometimes, spontaneity is all you need to keep your style versatile and sharp!

    so well put together! sometimes the best thing we do are the ones we do without things. Being spontaneous is often my way (or my choice) because when I plan things never work out...I've learned to just go with the flow sometimes.

    You look super cute and very stylish! love the heels, the vintage bag and the pink earrings...perfect accessories for that lovely yellow sweater and that adorable tulle skirt!

  8. Hi Madison, wow you look so glamorous. I love the cute tulle skirt and the way you styled it. I would take me hours to think of a look like that. I have to admit I'm not a spontaneous person. So I can't even remember one thing I did spontaneously. Have a happy Tuesday!!

    xx Mira

  15. I'm usually the sort who doesn't really like to think about my outfit which is why I have a number of fail safe looks. You look amazing as always Madison! Loving your jumper and glittery heels.

    Loving the pastels and the color combos are so pretty, the vintage jumper is very cute. I, too, have those feeling sometimes even though you've plenty in the closet and those packaged you just ordered and came right in front your door, don't even excited to open:).
    Wish you a lovely day and week:).

  18. You look wonderful! Love the clever layering and bright shoes! x

  19. I love pastels more and more. You look really great in this outfit; it really goes with your look.

  20. Super girly and beautiful! Those accessories are awesome. :)

  21. Your outfit turned out beautiful Madison. I love the pastel colour pallet and then the punch of stronger colour with your pretty metallic shoes. I really adore your tulle skirt :)

    Take care,
