Khaki Over Black

Being sick for a few days really sucks. First of all, it was a beautiful summer weekend. And more than anything I hate it’s being stuck in bed. Will not bore you with the details, as I am sure you can all relate. But as a constant do-er, it was, and still is hard for me to sit still. A change from regular programming, I had a few takeaways from the experience. I decided to take a more positive approach about the situation. One of the perks to being at home, was that I cleaned out my closets. I still was hanging onto some items that I no longer love, and was also missing some key pieces. For those feeling like their daily getup is getting a bit stale, this is for you.

The takeaway? It’s time to read more, express empathy, give myself a break, and choose khaki over black.

Summertime is the perfect time to rethink and inject some change into your look. Enter: khaki—yes, you heard me right.
