How to wear: Color!

No comments:
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was full of excitement and new adventures of course. Haven't done a "my looks" post since returning back from Italy and am still catching up on everything/getting adjusted. As I've mentioned before, I have been trying to inject more color into my wardrobe as I tend to gravitate towards black, especially in the evening! 

On an errand running Saturday, I stopped into Zara and decided to try on a few pieces for an event I was attending. I desperately wanted to buy the now infamous zara "skort", but wasn't thrilled with the way it fit. I ended up trying on a million things and the lovely sales people helped me with numerous sizes and styles. I wanted to see how one of the garments I was trying on looked with heels and asked a saleswoman to grab me a pair. She brought me these beautiful orange babies below and I was immediately in love. So began my search for a look to match. I found the matching dress and was thrilled with the outcome. This was the most color I have ever worn in one look and I have to say it felt liberating wearing color at the event while most people were wearing black. That's the thing about fashion, you have to push yourself to try new things and always keep evolving! 

How to wear color!
  • Add accessories to balance out the look. I added a chunky necklace here as the dress is quite simple. 
  • Don't be afraid to match! 
  • As I always stress - make sure you have the correct undergarments. No lines!
  • Zara tip - they often have sizes/unworn items in storage. I asked for a pair of heels that hadn't been on the floor and they brought me a brand new pair :) Don't be a afraid to ask!
  • Have fun, try new things and push yourself to step outside your comfort zone :)
