I recently assessed the entirety of my wardrobe and realized that it consists mostly of black, white, blue and red garments. While I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing, what I do know is that those colors do lend themselves to easily mix and match — and it’s very, ummm…USA-Chic?

Speaking of which, the Fourth of July is only 6 months away! While I’m disappointed that we’ve barely experienced a proper winter season in Seattle this year, I’m also not totally ready for bikini season yet either. However, this unseasonably warm winter leaves me nothing to do but attempt to get into the summer mode. The red, white, and blue color combo is very nautical in tone, which puts me in a boating-around-the-lake kind of mood. If indeed this is the end to winter in The PNW, I suppose I’d better get myself to the gym. Sigh…

I wore an oversized coat by Zara (similar here), Topshop skinny jeans, a BCBG sweater (I love this one too), and Valentiono Rockstud heels. Accessorized with a Zara-studded shoulder bag (similar by Calvin Klein), Vince Camuto earringsMadewell bangles and Versace sunnies (currently 40% OFF).
