So, on this day, I went to a coffee shop (big surprise!) after an amazing brunch at a tiny bakery not far from my apartment. I felt nerdy and preppy, so I tried to combine the best of both. Here is the result! I love my periodic table of elements T-shirt. It looks like your run-of-the-mill PTOE, but the "elements" cocktail ingredients. I'm a lush, you guys! I admit it! Hehe. Hopefully a clever one at that. ;D
It is such a challenge for me to be colorful. I'm not usually this color crazy with my outfits, but I just followed my feelings. I really do like it. It seems fresh, new and sweet like a tasty fruit. =)
I didn't want to dilute the colorfulness of the outfit with a dark colored purse, so I went with my favorite mint handbag and countered with a teal feather belt. In a previous post, I mentioned my fascination with mixing different shades of the same color. The teal belt and mint purse are a corollary of that. In this way, I call attention to the distinctive colors of each item without overpowering the outfit as a whole.
I think this outfit would be appropriate for Spring, Summer or Fall.
Also, can I just say that I love my new sneakers? I wore black lace ankle socks with them. They are such a breath of fresh air to my closet that is filled with brown and black shoes. This is my overt attempt at injecting more color into my wardrobe and taking more risks with my fashion sense.
I was going to brush away the leaf, but I liked the color contrast, so I allowed it to remain. Hehe. ;D
