Spring time in Washington, DC is about as fickle as Donald Trump’s position on abortion. While there seems to no longer be a transition from an election year to a non-election year, at least we have transition fashion. I mean, if I am going to spend a heated summer arguing about why women support candidates who are anti-women, I at least want my wardrobe to be cool and crisp.
Even though it is spring time, I love feeling as slinky as a snow leopard in the Himalayan mountains. Anytime a New Yorker veers away from an #allblackeverything look, that is progress. I got all the way to grey with this asymmetrical maxi skirt from Zara, and cutout sweater by DKNY Jeans. Enjoying the cherry blossoms during “peak bloom” weekend, my modern metallic sandals were a testament to the fact that you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort.
I am a firm believer that a wardrobe should be a curation of the most special experiences in your life. Instead of being trendy, it should be timeless. That is why I wore a choker set I found in India nearly ten years ago, to add a pop of color to my grey spring look. And, as we know, timeless pieces like the choker always come back in style.
Reminiscent of an Indian crown jewel, this choker set makes me feel like royalty. Chokers are without a doubt, one of fashion’s best kept secrets. They add an air of elegance and sophistication to any ensemble. And like a head mistress at a finishing school, they keep the posture of your neck effortless and envious.
I carried the essence of India with me all day as I strolled around the cherry blossoms. Going from winter to spring, there is anticipation in every corner of life. Cherry blossoms. Graduation. Love. Travel. And yes, even the election. It is nice to know that I can reach into my wardrobe and pull out a treasured timeless memory, and transition into the new of life.
