Oct 20, Burst of Color

Looking over my last few posts- there is definitely a common theme- I like neutrals, a lot!  I’m not sure why I’m so afraid of color, it’s not like I’m a shy person!

However, now that the days are turning grayer and grayer- I feel the need to bring a little burst of color into my wardrobe!

Until this style experiment, this (on the right) was my daily uniform; a white t shirt, jeans, cardigan and mom shoes. Boring- but safe!

Nothing wrong with a white t shirt, it just doesn’t have much personality. With the right accessories, it can definitely stand alone (as in what I wore yesterday), but today I want more! I am always a fan of stripes- so this shirt seemed like the perfect fit.

 
I’m also trying to find alternatives to my skinny jeans (did you notice I haven’t worn them once this week?!) These gray skinny cords are a nice change.   Throw on a necklace and change into cuter shoes (can’t go wrong with Tory Burch flats) and I’m all set.

By keeping the colors of this outfit limited to only 3 colors- it is not too busy!

Pants: Banana Republic, Striped shirt: J Crew, Sweater: Nordstrom Rack, Shoes: Nordstrom, Necklace: Kohl’s
