This has been the week of comfy, put-together outfits. I’ve been trying to meet the challenge of remixing outfits as the weather warms up, and it hasn’t been easy. There have been a lot of days with repeat outfits that I didn’t photograph. Adding a few new items to my wardrobe has helped to freshen things up a bit, but I’m still struggling to create new looks in the warm temps. Cardigans have been my saving grace lately, and I’m dreading the 80 + degree temperatures that will soon become the norm for the next four or five months here. Without the cardigan, this outfit would have just been shorts and a tee – which is a bit too casual for me most days. A cardigan adds a nice dose of polish to it. Right now I’m very much on the lookout for nice sleeveless blouses and light, short sleeved cardigans to get me through summer.
It’s come to my attention lately that I wear a LOT of blue. Blue has always been one of my fall-back colors for clothing, because I’ve always loved how it brings out my blue eyes. During the winter, I started adding a great variety of colors, but much of my summer wardrobe still centers around this hue. I’m trying to diversify my wardrobe more now by adding yellow, green, fuchsia and other colors into my summer wardrobe.
What’s your fall-back color?
