Stripes and Loud Colors

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Red has never been my "favorite color," even as a kid. Red makes me feel too out there and too noticed. I'm not a Lolita, I'm not Miss Scarlet, I'm not Elmo, I'm not Lightning McQueen. Red is a LOUD, scary color to wear. Until I thrifted this skirt, I didn't have red in my wardrobe. But, the point of blogging and putting myself out there is to stretch my comfort zone. To get noticed for looking my personal best- and sometimes that means trying out a new color via thrifted skirt. What I caaaaan get behind is this striped tee. It's lightweight, the spacing of the striped is classic. Life is about compromise, why shouldn't I embrace the concept in finding my personal style, too? Red skirt, safe stripes.
