I am usually Queen of the Neutrals. But today I took a fashion chance and threw on all the colors in my closet – OK, a very bright, colorful scarf. I’m not sure about the results. While not un-attractive, it didn’t really feel like me all day, at the office. Full disclosure: I removed the scarf after lunch!
|Blouse and skirt: GAP; Shoes: Sofft; Bangle: Thrifted; Scarf: Ross
“Me” would be: lose the scarf (save it for a solid-on-solid office day) and substitute a black or navy belt. I feel good with the pops of color provided by the bangle and shoes.
Lessons learned: it’s fun to color outside the lines. Otherwise there are no lessons learned. And to be confident all day, I need to be true to my personal style. Maybe I’ll repeat this scarf and blouse combo for a movie date or lunch with my sister, over dark jeans.
As I often remind myself, it’s fashion, not surgery! Hope your day was full of happy experiments.
