That thing called color.

January 30, 2013

Filed Under: Style

Most of the time, I don’t wear a lot of color – and I think that’s okay. I wouldn’t consider being drawn to neutrals a rut, but rather my natural aesthetic. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s not fun to play around with more vibrant hues every now and then. This sweatshirt was a birthday gift from Kai. I have been wearing it around the house 24/7, but recently decided to style it up for a casual day of work at a coffee shop.

    I am exactly the same. Black and gray and neutrals – when I’m in a store, I’m simply not attracted to the bright colors. This outfit is really pretty, though.

    Love the mix of brights here – definitely cheery and the rest of the neutrals help tone it down :)

    The only thing better than a bright color is TWO bright colors :) Love it, and love that Marc bag. I have the nylon tote and iPad case. Love them both!

    I never thought I’d say a laptop bag is the best part of an outfit, but that’s seriously my favourite part. I can’t get over how much I love the colour

    I feel like I haven’t seen you in brights for some time…but I JUST love it!!! You can pull anything off…I like that you chose two really strong colors and a great statement bag…they are perfect together.

    LOVE this outfit! I’m always saying that I want to work more neon yellow into my wardrobe (I’m totally not kidding, by the way). The laptop bag is awesome too…just the right amount of crazy color!
