Dress (shop), Cardigan, Belt, Booties: Target | Tights: We Love Colors
Do you have color combos that you tend to avoid? I’ve mentioned before how I have an aversion to holiday-inspired colors. Well, another for me is purple and yellow. It flashes me straight back to high school, awkward teenage years and all. Our school colors were royal purple and gold–a combo I like–but most “gold” items turned out to be a dorky shade of yellow. How can a shade of yellow be dorky? I don’t know, but it was. Now, whenever I see purple and yellow, sirens go off in my head screaming, “Dorky!!” With this outfit, I talk myself out of it by telling myself that this is “mustard and maroon,” not purple and that dorky shade of yellow. Purple and yellow = dorky, awkward teenage years. But mustard and maroon? Me likey.
