After the previous week's neutral heavy looks, last week I was in the mood for more color. While I was quite happy with all of these, the last three outfits had a significantly higher happiness factor -- am mulling over what that means exactly! Please pardon the extra inconsistent/incorrect lighting due to the volatile weather; bonus toothy grins to make up for it ^^
#2 Monday 01.18. A simple tonal look: aqua, faded blue, and gray. Charcoal coat and silver holo clutch to pick up on the tonality, and plum gloss for a little wintery darkness. Hair is sooooo overdue for a cut; couldn't control the flopiness so I just left it!
Newer: jeans, sunnies
Older: sweater, boots, earrings, coat, clutch
#3 Tuesday 01.19. Long-line white out, without single matching shade ^^ Burgundy moto coat for a totally opposite outerwear darkness (balanced by the boots' black bits) and finished with candy pink lipstick.
Newer: blazer, sunnies
Older: sweater, jeans, boots, necklace, coat, clutch
#4 Wednesday 01.20. A colorful black+cognac outfit because, well, you know me. Really liking the cognac accents with this sheer floral blouse and am curious to also try with white bottoms. After not buttoning all-the-way-up in a while it felt fresh to do so again. Orangey lip balm and no jewelry, just because, with a few more prints in the outerwear.
Newer: pants, scarf, earrings, sunnies
Older: sweater, boots, coat, clutch
#5 Thursday 01.21. Fun print mix for a VERY soggy day, coupled with a fuzzy leo hat and faux side-swept asymmetrical hair. I have yet to hem these jeans to kick-crop length but decided to wear them just the same along with my silver glitter jelly boots, and added some bright red lipstick for that little extra girly/glam touch. I hadn't really considered this print mix as much of anything, but got several comments on "how crazy" "all of the" patterns were (do picture me doing overexaggerated air quotes). I think I'm getting immune
Newer: jeans, hat
Older: blouse, vest, boots, coat, clutch
#6 Friday 01.22. A few days earlier Angie mentioned the "Poppy, Rust & White" color combo which I just love and I've got loads of options for this color combo once the weather warms up. Here's a sort-of-wintery version for a surprisingly warm day. This jacket leans a bit more watermelon (though way less than the photos show!) and, while I know it won't be everyone's cuppa, I find the rust pairing deliciously clashing both in hue and in saturation. Finished with more red (lips) and orange (sunnies, booties).
Newer: sweater, earrings, sunnies
Older: jeans, blazer, booties, clutch
#7. Detail photos. Going light on the earrings for a bit, apparently my ears need a little break.
