I love all things heart shaped. I’m not really sure why, but I do. I have carried a heart shaped purse for years now, my bowls and plates are heart shaped, I have a giant heart pillow on my bed, and the list goes on. I make most of my major purchases around Valentine’s Day; everything available is heart shaped! You might call it an obsession, but I just call it my heart’s desire.
Imagine the joy I felt when I spotted this Fashionista enjoying a night on the Terrace with her puppy while wearing a giant heart on her T-shirt! While crowds of children and their parents were crowding around her to fawn over her tiny, tiny dog, I patiently stood in line to fawn over the genius of her ensemble. It is definitely simple, relaxed and comfortable, but it looks anything but sloppy or not put together. The cut of her pants is perfectly trendy right now with pleats and tapered legs. A touch of quirkiness comes from the heart (with eyes!) on her plain white T-shirt, and a punch of personality comes from the color combination of bright pink and red. A lack of accessories keeps this look from going over the top.
Wear your heart on your sleeve, or anywhere, this summer, and don clothes that have hearts on them. Try an ensemble like this Fashionista’s, and wear a relaxed pair of trendy, bright chinos (try bright blue!) with a tank that has a heart and stripes or a T-shirt just like the Fashionista’s — it’s Comme des Garcons! For an even sweeter look, try a heart T-shirt without eyes with jean shorts that have printed pink hearts all over them. If you’re loving hearts but need a fancier look, try a little black dress with a heart cutout on the back. Talk about love!
