• {Fashion Monday} Two blacks & Some Colour

    Two blacks and some colour


    I have mentioned many a time that I am not the most fashionable person around. I dress simple, I am dress for comfort and I dress for me more than style or the world. When I put outfits together mostly I do them in the dark (don’t really put much thought into it) and 90% of the time the outfit is good ‘enough’.

    The two blacks and some colour outfit is something I didn’t even think about until Wednesday last week when I realised that since the weather took a turn for the worst I subconsciously changed my attire to wearing more blacks with pop of colour. Monday and Wednesday saw me wear a black top and black pants (trousers) and what was different was for Monday I added my beige jacket and on Wednesday I added a yellow jacket (both from New Look). Since the weather is still pretty cold I paired these outfits with black knee-high boots with the yellow blazer and ankle boots to go with the beige blazer. I also paired these outfits with a blue bag I purchased from Ratuken and I think it went well together, I figured I had too much black on so maybe a another dark colour would be better as it would still allow the blazers to stand-out.

    For the past 12 months I have loved adding some colour to my outfits, it always brightens up my mood when I wear colours that pop like yellow, sky-blue, orange, red even some green. I have also noticed that when I dress in all dark colours I will be in more of a sad mood (foul mood) than a happy mood.

    I wish that every time I like an outfit or pinned one on pinterest that it would somehow magically appear in my closet the next day (I know big wish).

    What colours are you playing with lately? Any bright colours?

      I love black as well. I’m using colorful scarves to add a pop of color into my wardrobe.

      I love those boots. They are so gorgeous. I’ve always wanted a pair like that. I am a huge fan of black and wear it as much as possible!

        I love black too but want to add some colour without taking it out completely

    4. February 23, 2016 / 7:45 pm

      I am not a fashionable person, but I love that yellow blazer and that blue purse! I think they look awesome with the black!

      With very limited space in my closet, I have been buying more mix and match items. These are really cute and I love the colors. I should wear these colors more.

      • February 23, 2016 / 2:03 pm

        I too have limited space so it’s nice to have mix match items

      These are some really nice mix and match items. It is important to me when buying out fits to make sure I can mix and match them with each other as well as accessories. I love the yellow blazer and I believe in adding the colors too because it does change the mood.

      • February 23, 2016 / 10:34 am

        Thanks Rebecca I believe colours can change someone’s mood

    8. February 23, 2016 / 4:25 am

      I would agree to you. Colors can surely affect our mood. I have noticed this as well in myself.

      • February 23, 2016 / 8:18 am

        So true

    9. February 23, 2016 / 4:13 am

      I am not much of a fan of the colour yellow but that is a great piece! I am wanting to spice up the colours in my wardrobe this spring and that would be a good start.

      • February 23, 2016 / 8:18 am

        I didn’t like yellow before but honestly now can’t stop wearing it

    10. February 23, 2016 / 2:04 am

      I love black, white, and gray and my closet shows it. As the Spring is starting to peek in I am looking to add more color specifically pastels but it is so hard because I really do like black, white and gray!

      As Spring is starting to peek in I’m looking to add some more color to my wardrobe. Specifically pastels but I am a fan of black, white and gray and my closet shows it.

        I love add colour year round but somehow winter always brings the darker colours out

    12. February 22, 2016 / 9:55 pm

      I absolutely love when a neutral color pallette is enhanced by a pop of color. Thanks for the wardrobe inspiration!

      • February 22, 2016 / 11:32 pm

        You welcome

    13. February 22, 2016 / 8:57 pm

      I think colour is so important, especially in the winter months. The days can be dark and deoressing so I like to add something bright just to keep me feeling cheerful.

      • February 22, 2016 / 11:30 pm

        My thinking exactly, change up the mood with some colour

    14. February 22, 2016 / 8:43 pm

      I’m a colors kind of gal, it has been unseasonably warm in DC so I’ve enjoyed that. In the winter I tend to stick with grays and color, not sure why. I love bright bold colors and prints. They make me feel good.

      • February 22, 2016 / 11:13 pm

        I was not really into bright colours before but now loving them and trying to leave the dark colours behind me whenever I can

    15. February 22, 2016 / 7:49 pm

      I love adding a pop of colour to my outfits, makes them really stand out. Loving those pink/salmon Boots!

      • February 22, 2016 / 11:12 pm

        That’s what I am aiming for not only to be comfortable but standout too

    16. February 22, 2016 / 6:41 pm

      Oooh! My go-to color is coral- I LOVE the orange/pink. I really need to expand. I feel like I’m all black and beige clothes.

      • February 22, 2016 / 11:10 pm

        I want to try some coral one day but these days I am trying everything colourful that I have in my closet

    17. February 22, 2016 / 2:37 pm

      You don’t sound very unfashionable- matter of fact, that lineup sounds downright spiffy! Babushka is all about colors and patterns so she would have added an outrageously loud scarf somewhere in there. But that’s just BB.

      • February 23, 2016 / 8:22 am

        Hahahah thanks

    18. February 22, 2016 / 1:27 pm

      I always dress for me and my own comfort and never for style. I do have a lot of black slacks, but to be fair so many tops go with them..

      • February 22, 2016 / 1:48 pm

        I think that’s the best way to be, drew for you, for comfort and if it’s your fancy for style or to impress. Black slacks always match perfectly with everything

    19. February 22, 2016 / 12:37 pm

      I have to admit that most of my wardrobe staples are black, but I do add in pops of color. I love how you paired the yellow and beige jackets with your basic black.

      • February 22, 2016 / 12:44 pm

        Thanks Alli, mine had too many dark colours but slowly changing
