Nothing Short of Chic: Personal Style: Chambray In Love


Personal Style: Chambray In Love

Black and white and jeans is the epitome of casual-romantic.

I absolutely love denim in black-and-white. It's so perfect - it makes the cool-girl fabric seem somehow cooler, really carefree and easygoing. But the colorless filter also makes the subtle stitching details and the nuances in the tone and wash stand out. Basically, to me, it's the opposite of what you would expect - instead of dulling the image, a BW filter brings the denim to life, and really vivifies it and makes it seem different from the way we generally perceive it. For these images, I simply lowered the saturation level almost all the way, leaving just enough that you can tell the ivy is green, the leaves are brown, my hair is browner, and the jeans are blue, and then I softened the images ever so slightly to enhance the romantic feel of the setting and elements, even if the outfit, on its own, is totally everyday.

Today has been such an incredible day – warm (for February), sunny (but with just the right amount of cloud cover), and so perfect for all the senses: the birds are singing, in direct sunlight the sun's heat caresses the skin, the air smells of flowers and new growth, there is green springing up everywhere, so lovely against the bright blue sky and fluffy white clouds, and the air tastes like sunshine and spring.
