Outfit to Room: February Edition

February 20, 2017

It’s time for a monthly does of fashion with guest contributor, Alyssa Doorhy, of CoChic Styling. Alyssa and I both love fashion and interiors, and thought it would be fun to see one of my interior designs translated into a seasonal outfit each month of the year. Did you catch January’s Outfit to Room? This February has been very mild here in Chicago, and I think Alyssa’s pick of this bedroom with floral wallpaper accent wall feels just right for that cool early spring weather.

This room has wallpaper by Relativity Textiles, and was designed for lifestyle blogger Maya McDonald of Charmingly Styled. The color palette began with a red lacquered dresser Maya already owned (from another favorite vendor of mine, MegMade) and blue felt like a natural pairing to cool down the red. The rustic wood ceiling added incredible texture, and white bedding, hints of gray and gold complete the look! Here’s Alssya’s take on fabulous coordinating outfit.

Alssya’s advice on wearing those summer crop tops:

  •  Unless you are in your early 20’s and have a rocking bod (aka Kendall Jenner), your midriff should not be showing when you’re wearing a crop top. Make sure the seam on the bottom of your top hits the waistband of your bottoms. A good way to ensure this will work is to wear high waisted pants or a skirt.
  • If you are curvier on top, wear a fitted crop top. Many times women who are busty wear baggier shirts to try to minimize their chest, but it actually makes them look larger than they are.
  • If you are petite, a crop top with a high-low hemline is flattering. It will elongate you, making you look taller.

Check back next month for a whole new outfit room! Hope your inspired to look at fashion and interiors with new eyes today! Also, a bedroom with floral wallpaper is never a bad idea!
