Hey Pretty Birds,

Are you ever inspired by nature or your environment when styling an outfit? I am especially attracted to elements that elevate my mood when planning my looks. That’s why I mostly gravitate towards bold colors, tactile fabrics and energetic prints; and why for this entry, I’m dressing like a sunset.

Last week while editing my closet, my eye quickly cataloged a selection of pieces that remind me of the varying stages of sunsets. From the golden hour to twilight, the sun’s light show does it for me every time: sky blue mixed with pink, golden yellow with blue and  touches of viola there in between.

Usually the prints that evoke the beauty of Mother Nature are achieved or inspired by the techniques that we learned in art class or arts and crafts: water color, tie-n-dye, papier-mâché, drip technique and glitter and glue projects. Hence my indecision with the title of this week’s style diary entry: Dress Like the Sunset or How You Would Paint it in Art Class. Both parts of the title are relevant for me, what do you think? Tell me below in the comments.

So as we transition further into our Covid-19 norm and we can move outside of our homes, gardens and beyond our neighborhoods to enjoy the sunsets; will you dress like one? If so, here are 5 looks to set your sights on!
