Color – The Perfect Pairing


Raise your hand if you love color as much as I do! When I was in Chicago recently, (you can see what I purchased HERE) I came across this bright yellow sweater in TopShop and fell in love. I had the earrings in my hand and when I saw the sweater, I knew I would pair them together. I walked a little further and saw the red booties, and my outfit was complete lol! I had been searching for the perfect pair of red booties and died when I saw these. They are SO comfortable and I love the kitten heel. I walked all over Chicago and they were still comfortable! They are honestly more than I wanted to spend, but for the perfect bootie, #WorthIt.

I am actually wearing this top backwards. The back has the V neck and I wanted it in the front. Thankfully you can’t tell at all. I love that I have the option of both! It really does look cute having the V neck in back, and will wear my hair up when I wear it like that.

I absolutely love mixing colors and patterns. I like to keep things interesting when I dress. I am just not a neutral kind of girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love neutrals and wear them sometimes, but I am just drawn to color. I was recently looking in my closet for a simple black top, and I have maybe 2?! There was a time when all I bought was black and white. I guess as I am getting older, I am wanting to stand out more lol.

How To Add A Pop Of Color

For this outfit, I love the red and bright yellow together. earrings are a great way to add a pop of unexpected color to an outfit. If you aren’t brave enough to wear red booties, just wear red earrings and stick to a neutral or black shoe. That can go for any outfit. You could also add a pop of color with a jacket or handbag. One of my favorite combos is floral and leopard. I love love LOVE it! You can see an example of it HERE and HERE. Shoes, jewelry, and handbags are a great way to add the perfect pop of color. You can have a neutral outfit and make that piece stand out perfectly. I love doing an all black or an all white outfit and adding fun shoes or bag to mix it up, like HERE. How great are those velvet booties?!

Are you drawn to color, or is neutrals where it’s at for you?!

Thanks for reading!
