before and after
Sunday 23 August 2015
This look is BORING. In my defense, I was meeting my boyfriend's father for the first time so I was going for 'plain and conservative' but I think I went a little too far. This week I realized I wasn't being as adventurous as I'd like to be style-wise. I felt the 'boring'.
TIP: TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR OUTFITS -- This all started off a suggestion from Gala Darling so there's no reason you can't reap the benefits from this practice as well. I like to document my life. That happens in various forms from journaling to calendars to blogs, adding this visual element has been really fun but honestly it helps more in real time. I'm more aware of myself and who/ what I'm presenting to the world having these pictures to review. Yay, positive applications!

My only goal Monday was to not wear all black. Accomplished! I just love neutrals. If I had to have a closet of only varied shades of black, whites, and grey, I'm sure I could still have a great time with clothing.
TIP: COLORS CAN QUALIFY AS NEUTRALS -- Navy, Mustard, Burgundy, Brown, Tan, Rose pink. Nearly anything that isn't bold and bright, or neon, can slide into neutral territory and typically be very complimentary with most things.
I don't, however, know where I stand with powder blue and mint. Do you consider them to be neutrals? Let me know below!
