I guess...this is as close to sophisticated as it will get for me. Hehe. I thought about adding all sorts of different colors and layers. However, the more I tried to do with this outfit, the less I liked it. Sometimes, it really is best to just keep things simple. Plus, I wanted my awesome popsicle socks to stand out. ^_^
When I received the socks from my sponsor, Sock It To Me, I thought: 'Holy sh*t. Neon coral popsicle socks?' o_O Haha. I freaked out. I loved the print and color, but I didn't exactly find myself brimming with style ideas at first glance. Nevertheless, I refuse to back down from a style challenge and I am determined to continually wear these socks in flattering and interesting ways. Their manatee socks are still giving me a run for my money, though. >_< Haha. Anyway, I figured a black canvas would make the neon coral pop and I was right. :P Still, I didn't want to cop out and do just an all-black outfit.
So, I punched up the color with a bright teal sweater and administered another dose of patterns with the houndstooth backpack. I've wanted a plain, bright teal sweater for a long time and I was lucky enough to get this one through my clothing swap group. It's ASOS brand and well-made. The material is warm and I really love the depth of the weaving on the chest. The patterns create kind of an optical illusion.
Yep! ^_^ This is my most normal looking outfit of the year, I think. Haha. Enjoy, because it will be back to regularly scheduled programming, next week. ;D Have an awesome weekend, everyone! <3
