Pink, Purple and Polka Dots

Hey Loves!

With the undertaking of re-branding myself, I have updated my wardrobe by purchasing new and current items while getting rid of dated items. I also had to learn how to utilize the old items to keep them current-does that make sense?

Anywho, today, with the weather being really nice, I was inspired to wear some bright colors but I immediately went back to my teaching days and asked myself “am I gonna look like a two-year-old?”  I mainly do one bright color or pastel with a solid base. For example, a white skirt and neon green blouse or blue checkered shorts and a white top.

Today, I wanted more so I selected a fuchsia button up blouse, bell-bottom denim jeans and a wedge sandal. I needed accessories so instead of basic silver I paired a lavender beaded necklace and matching earrings. Then, my hair decided not to cooperate (I am currently protective styling it with individual twist gathered in a  high bun, with Marley hair added for fullness)-my edges were doing what they wanted. To tame them, I added a purple scarf with white polka dots and tied it as a headband. Boy, was I scared to go to the mirror. However, when I went I was very pleased. The cut of the blouse and jeans defined my slim waist and accentuated my curves in just the right manner. The wedges add height and thus gives a slimming and elongating effect to my legs. The denim jean, although solid, has a retro look adding another flare to my look. The necklace adds a subtle contrast to the brightness of my shirts and ties my headband to the outfit.
