Spring is coming, it’s time to lighten up!
I’m drawn to all the airy, faded colors right now, so last week I shopped my closet and pulled out all the light colors I could find, including this sweater.
I got this sweater for my fall wardrobe, and it paired beautifully with the rust + cognac tones of fall. Turns out, it also works perfectly for my spring wardrobe (and color palette) too — that wheat color mixes just right with faded denim and springtime blush.
If you remember, one of my wardrobe goals this year is to add a little more color, and I think blush is going to be my color for spring. So I’m testing it out in small doses first — with a bandana.
I love a bandana loosely tied around the neck, but I’m curious — do any of you wear bandanas in your hair? I want to try it, but I haven’t quite figured out how to pull it off — what to pair it with and how to style it. I’ll try it soon, but got any advice for me in the meantime?
Anyway. Last Monday I posted an outfit similar to this one. Same sweater, same clogs, same bag. In fact, the only difference is the jeans. Take a look:
When I first noticed how similar they were, I felt like I should try harder to show “different” outfits because of the blog. But, in real life, I usually wear outfits like these — similar with just a few key differences.
Different color palette, different attitude, different styling — isn’t it cool how different that sweater looks tucked in vs. untucked?
Even though they have a lot of overlap, these are two unique looks. It’s a nice reminder that you can get a new look by simply changing one element of an outfit.
So tell me, got a color in mind for your spring wardrobe? Any advice for wearing a bandana in your hair? And what are your thoughts on this whole “change one element of the outfit, get a new look” thing?
