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.

You love stripes!! What are your thoughts about patterns that aren’t geometric (florals, etc)? I haven’t seen you mention them yet.
I know- I’m a bit addicted to them! For some reason I do not wear any floral- (I do have a floral top that I might wear tomorrow), but I seem to be very drawn to stripes above all other patterns. That’s not to say I don’t like other patterns- I just don’t seem to own many. I’m going to try to expand my patterns a bit though- good suggestion!
Thanks so much for all your comments!
Seriously loving the Tory Burch shoes!!
Yep – I coveted them for a long time, then finally splurged and bought them! I love them!
