Remember when you were in elementary school and the highlight of your school day was art class, or was that just me? Well anyway doing arts and crafts was my favorite and still is, but there was no better project than one that involved paint. It was always a blast to dip my paint brush in my favorite colored paints and splatter it on a white piece of paper. Sure, it made a mess, but it was the mess that made the best looking art pieces. I reminisce about this project simply because my sweater in today’s style post reminds me of all my splatter paint projects I did when I was younger. Keep on reading to see how I’m adding color on a dreary winter day and keeping my childhood memory alive.
Sadly, I don’t remember the last time I painted, so I’m simply relying on sweaters like this to keep my passion for art alive. Shout out to my mom for digging through a pile of sale sweaters at Zara and finding this masterpiece. She really knows my style. I love how this sweater features tons of bright colors and a hint of metallic colors as well. The “messy” pattern sure makes a statement plus the irregular cut sleeves add a whole other dimension to this sweater making it not just an ordinary sweater.
I hit up Zara at the right time because they were holding a major sale. I scored these light wash, distressed denim, skinny jeans for an unbeatable price. Of course, to show off my jeans I had to do the half tuck trick with my sweater!
I was totally feeling bold today so I brought out my metallic moto jacket recently purchased at Forever 21. I think the metallic silver color against the bright colors in my sweater look awesome together. Plus, with a jacket like this you can either wear it the normal way or channel your inner Kim K and drape it over your shoulders.
For shoes, I’m wearing my edgy black booties from Lord and Taylor. A statement outfit like this just calls for a simple choice of footwear.
The same thing goes for jewelry, I didn’t want to overdo it with jewelry so I’m wearing my delicate gold necklace I got from a boutique in London.
It’s cool how one fashion piece can stimulate a few memories from childhood. Who knew that a messy project like splatter paint could produce the most beautiful art work and in this case the coolest kind of sweater.
