Happy Monday. I had a very interesting conversation at dinner with my family last night. We were talking about clothes and my style and they said I was “just different” and always have been when it comes to clothes. I know the outfit that threw my family over the edge was the yellow dress with hot pink tights. They couldn’t fathom 1. the color combination 2. that I wore it for a big meeting. To each his own. But my family was right, I’ve always been different. In high school I’d wear a floor length tie dyed dress one day and a plaid mini skirt and matching vest the next. I’ve always been fascinated with color, always loved shoes and I’ve worn bright tights for forever.
This morning I threw together my outfit in 10 minutes, I was running late and had to take the Metro so I didn’t have much time to think about it. I bought this watercolor print T-shirt from the Gap last week and was itching to wear it but with what? When I threw it on the bed next to my blue pleated skirt I knew we had a winner. And instead of wearing a neutral cardigan or top like navy blue, I decided why not play up another one of the colors in the shirt? I of course went with red.
And since there’s so much color up top, I anchored my look with navy tights and grey kitten heels. I wouldn’t wear red tights with this look, that’s too cliche in my book. Although I’m already sure some of you will look at this color combination like “that’s interesting…” But that’s okay because I am just different and I’ll always be that way.
