The lighter side


Light blue, white, and navy. Those are three of my favorite colors and one of my favorite color combinations. Do you ever find yourself trying to buy new pieces in different colors because “you have enough tops in [insert color here]” only to not wear them as often as you think you should? That’s me when it comes to blue. I’ve finally given in and decided to buy blue whenever I please. I wear it a LOT and I know pieces won’t sit in my closet if they’re a shade of blue (unless the fit is poor, which has been known to happen and is now something I’m determined to avoid!).

Also, I’ve been trying to not wear my sunglasses in my outfit photos as often, but I always forget to take them off! I mean, I guess these photos do accurately portray real life. Not only do I wear the outfits I post, I’m always wearing my sunglasses unless it’s dark outside. I get so annoyed with myself when I forget them (which happens often in the winter) because bright sunlight hurts my eyes so much! (Plus, I’m trying to avoid the whole wrinkle thing for as long as possible!) I’ve decided I should probably pick up another pair or two to mix it up every once in a while.

  1. Those shoes are so unique! I should’ve known they’d come from Modcloth. I feel exactly the same way every time I add more navy, chambray, and coral, but I wear every single item I bring home in those color schemes so I don’t feel as guilty about it anymore. Though Fran was just talking about getting bored with what she had in her closet and that I can also sympathize with.

    • Oh yes, I totally know what she means! I think I get bored when I run out of new outfits to wear. When I find a combination I love, I’ll totally rewear it no problem, but after a while I just want something new. I think that has gotten worse for me since I started blogging! I’ve been trying extra hard this month to come up with new outfits with pieces I already have.

  2. haha YES, that’s how I am with the color black! I always gravitate towards black shift dresses, but now I’m starting to want pieces in indigo. when you find a color that works, it works! and im the opposite of you- i always forget to put my sunnies *on* =P

    • So true! Mmm, black and indigo–two other favorites of mine. 🙂 Haha, I used to never wear sunglasses, but after a while it became a habit and now I catch myself wearing them even after the sun goes down! Thanks so much for stopping by! xo
