OOTD: I Prefer Living In Color

Aug 26, 2019

I always start off with every blog post apologizing for my long absence between posts and vowing to post more regularly. It has been pretty difficult, but also, I have been feeling quite discouraged. As a micro-influencer, it's difficult to remain enthusiastic about blogging when it has become a numbers game. Less emphasis is being placed on the content, and it is more about how popular you are. I briefly considered shutting my blog down for good, but I enjoy doing it too much. This blog will always have a special place in my heart.

On to fashion! I really love how this look turned out. I was a little nervous when I added the earrings but I feel like everything came together beautifully. I wore clear mules to keep the focus on all the colors and not create too much distraction. I have done a post in the past about color blocking, which you can read here. Here are some additional tips as well:

-It is easier to color block with solid colors. As you get more comfortable, you can add different patterns. Breaking up the colors with denim is also a good way for a beginner to color block.

- Make sure your colors go well together. Brights go well with other brights. Pastels with pastels, etc.
Looking at a color wheel is a great way to see which colors complement each other. Once you have the basic color theory down, everything else is easy peasy.

-A great way to color block without incorporating a whole outfit is to do it with accessories. I love pairing shoes and a bag in different colors and it makes the look a lot more interesting.
