"Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions." - Pablo Picasso Today I decided to have a little fun with color and step outside the box by pairing this cobalt blue top with these plum vintage boots. For the most part, a person would pair this outfit with black shoes because it is the most practical thing to do; however, I loved giving it a punch of color in plum!
There are so many colors to choose from when it comes to clothing. I believe that people still find it hard to accept color in life. The color of skin is one thing, but here, I am talking about the colors we choose to wear and incorporate into our daily lives. I am not ashamed to admit that even I have a hard time wearing colors because it's almost as if one has to be in a certain mood to wear a certain color. Also, if a specific top comes in different colors, most of us will go for the neutral such as black, white or beige. Why is that? As a child we were all drawn to color. It's rare you see a child drawn to neutral colored toys. Then again most toys are made bright because the colors are what makes it that much more appealing for kids to want it. Why is it that as we got older we stopped reaching for color? Is it because our jobs and society want us neutral and to not stand out? I learned that on Wall Street the only colors that a worker may wear to work are navy blue, black and brown. I've also read that in psychology certain colors come off too strong or too soft and can influence a person getting a job or winning over your date into a more serious relationship! Prints showcase instability where solids show stability. I find it all interesting but never base my outfit on those concepts. No matter what, it is important to be you and dress like you. Spring is here and flowers of all colors begin to bloom. Pick a color, be bold, step outside your comfort zone and blossom!
Matching lipstick with the boots! I didn't plan for it to happen, but I'm happy it did! Hope you enjoyed! XOXO
