Yes, I just went from futuristic harbinger of misfortune to sugary sweet maiden. o_O This may come as a surprise to new visitors of my blog, but the rest of you have probably gotten used to this kind of behavior. I think a good rule of thumb for reading my blog is: expect the unexpected. Hehe.
That and maybe lower your expectations? Haha. I don't know. My style can be hit or miss and even jarring at times. I think when I succeed, I succeed big and when I fail, I fail really hard. I don't do anything half-ass. Better to keep your seat belt fastened at all times! So, what do I have going on here, today? Well, I basically threw together lots of colorful pieces and included a cheeky surprise. :P
I started with the earthy brown scarf and went from there. I received it from my sponsor, Oasap, and it's reasonably priced at $7.90. I desperately needed a scarf in this color, so I'm very happy to have it! I ended up getting two more of these in taupe and mustard. :D The scarf comes in many colors!
Yes, that is a creepy apple face staring at you from behind my back. Haha. I felt like the outfit needed a really bright pop of color besides that of the vintage mustard mittens. I didn't like how the print on the hat looked from the front. I thought it was a bit distracting. So, I got the bright idea to turn the hat around so it would just be plain red in the front. This resulted in a fun surprise for people behind me. ^_^
In addition to the brown scarf, I added more warm colors to counteract the bright hat and gloves. You might recognize the beautiful wooden button green coat. I last wore it in this post with a floral dress.
The textured carrot orange skirt is one of my favorite purchases. The color is perfect and it paired nicely with my Bershka mixed pattern teal sweater. It's my only orange skirt, too. I should probably get another one just for a bit of variety, eh? Hehe. Oh and you can see better views of the sweater here.
While we were running errands, I saw a lot of brown, grey and black figures shuffling around downtown. I know how depressing this time of year can be, so I hope I turned some Winter frowns upside down!
