I had a few goals in mind when I created this outfit. First, I wanted to be as colorful as possible. Second, I needed to avoid wearing black at all costs. Finally, I tried to choose some color pairings that you don't see very often and try to make them work. I do these mini challenges all the time. Sometimes, they work out and other times not so much. Hehe. Honestly, I'm not quite sure where I landed here.
I'm happy with the scarf, though, and I think it added a nice brightness to the mix. I've just been hoarding colorful scarves, lately. I received this one from my sponsor, Oasap, and it costs $7.90
You know, now that I think about it.... a red scarf and a yellow bag would have worked quite well. Dammit! Haha. I'll have to try those colors together, next time. The thing is, I was pretty obsessed with the third prong of the challenge. So, pairing the grass green cardigan with the purple corduroy jeans was very appealing. The navy coatigan seemed like a natural finisher, but I still wonder whether a different color would have been better. I'm always in my head. Always thinking. The second guessing can be exhausting. Haha. I dunno. I think I'm just not that used to seeing myself in brights. I might be going through an adjustment period of sorts. The more I look at this outfit, the more I do start to like it.
Omgosh! I forgot to mention that I'm wearing my new Warby Parker glasses! :DDD Monkey #2 FTW! Haha. If you were one of the people who helped me pick out these frames, then you'll get the reference. Hehe. I'm very happy with these as they are very similar to the thrifted cat eye glasses that I will sometimes wear. They're just not as over-sized/obnoxious. Haha. I will probably continue to wear the thrifted cat eyes, if a particular outfit really calls for it. It would be worth the temporary blindness. ;D
My package came with a nice hard case and soft pouch for each pair of glasses I ordered. Oh and each pair has anti-reflective and anti-scratch lenses! No additional charge! Very happy, indeed. ^_^ I hope you all have a nice weekend! I'm ecstatic that the snow has melted, but I know this won't last long. >_<
