Outfit Post

Hello There!

I hope you are all having a pleasant Thursday! Today I'm going to do an outfit post. I've never done one, but I just bought these AMAZING earrings from Jennifer Perkins at Naughty Secretary Club (for those of you who have not seen her blog, check it OUT! It's awesome) and I had to show them off!

I just took pictures of myself in the mirror, so it's no flashy photography or anything, so maybe I'll recruit Dave (my husband) for the next one. ;) Anyway, I thought I would use these earrings to do a little post on balance and color in an outfit.

First off, I don't follow "rules"... In fact, I kind of hate "rules." When I pick out my outfits I'm not thinking about what some magazine said, I'm I feel confident in this, is it comfortable, and does it meet my own outfit expectations? I DO wear a lot of color and sometimes that can get crazy, so I try and pay attention to what colors I want to play up how I can balance the other colors involved. So let's get started!

Earrings by Naughty Secretary Club
These earrings are fantastic and they are very colorful. Yellow is the main color,  but it has a larger green accent. So, for my outfit I chose a bright green vintage dress I found for $16 in New Orleans, and a 1950s yellow cardigan I found at Village Discount for $2. I felt like the green balanced out the yellow nicely.
Like i fancy photos here.
As for accessories....other than the earrings of course, I chose a yellow bow headband and a leopard print bag and shoes. The shoes are pictured below! I got them from Pin Up Girl Clothing, but I did have to buy one size up, but the 11s fit great.

When I'm wearing an outfit with a lot of color, I feel much more vibrant and confident. When you're picking out an outfit, make sure you're wearing something that makes YOU feel vibrant, comfortable, and confident no matter what it is. :)

Dave played along too ;)
