Solange Knowles is my Sartorial Spirit Animal

Hello lovely people, it's been too long since I last posted but I was hiding from the Godzilla of winters that we just experienced/survived. 

Today's post was inspired in part by actress and comedian Mindy Kaling who reminded of me something: Solange Knowles is my sartorial spirit animal. Kaling posted this compilation of photos on her Instagram feed and I felt inspired to share it with you; along with few other savoury Solange stylings.





Recent TMZ videos of family disputes with brother-in-law Jay-Z aside, year after year, Solange Knowles kills it with her daring and fearless outfits. You have to notice her. You have to pay attention. You have to take an extra minute to absorb the saturated, joyful colour, or the disorienting mix of patterns, or the hot pink lips framed by a head of wild, untamed curls. 

I know in the past few months I've been waxing poetic about the merits of minimalism, less is more, and a subdued palette. But you know what...it's summer. And after the winter that we (Canadians/North Americans) just endured (thank you polar vortex) I think we're all entitled to boldly go wherever our summery spirit takes us. Be fearless.

  1. She wears a lot of Joe Fresh. You're in a unique position to buy a lot of pieces that Americans aren't!
