Kim's Favorite Item:
Black patent Mary Janes

"They go with just about any outfit I have. They're definitely my "go-to" shoes!”

When you have a great pair of patent leather shoes like our model Kimberly's favorite Mary Janes, you can literally wear them with anything. To showcase spring's vibrant hues trend, Bjorn illustrates a monochromatic look with ease. The eggplant skirt from Gap acts as a neutral and the two-layer detail adds feminine interest. In another case of complimentary but not matching tones, he added a long sleeved knit shirt in burgundy and layered an East 5th cinnamon red satin button-down shirt over it. All of these tones are harmonious, but wouldn't necessarily be the first thing you'd think of. Similarities in color are the glue that pulls it all together. The only accessory needed here is a statement metal coin necklace with beaded details. Kimberly is now office appropriate without resorting to something bland and boring.
