A Most Favorite Color Scheme by Kristine

scarf from Japan; Tulle blouse; Urban Outfitters jeans ; Seychelles shoes

I love color. Every now and then, I try to do the chic dark-neutrals look…and I like how easy it is to look put together in those colors…but it just feels wrong to me. I need color in my outfit to make me feel bright and happy!
This outfit has one of my favorite color schemes in it:  purple and red. Occasionally, I go crazy with colorblocking, but I decided to separate the two colors with jeans for a more subdued look. These red heels have been with me for the past few years or so; somehow they add a fun pop of color to almost every outfit. I think every girl should have a pair of red or red-orange shoes to spice up any blah outfit! The head scarf was added for a bit of an unexpected color. I always think it’s interesting to add an element that doesn’t quite match… (But then again, sometimes I remind myself of that crazy art teacher we all probably had in elementary school…)


As you guys know, I don’t like graphic t-shirts. If you didn’t, you do now. I currently have two graphic t-shirts that I’ve worn on the blog. But I still don’t wear them very often. So I was really surprised when I grabbed this shirt this morning. It’s white so it’s basically a basic….basically. Plus, it has my favorite verb. If you can guess which one it is, you’re probably reading my blog too much….and that’s awesome.

Don’t forget!!! If you’ve broken one of your style rules this week, email me your outfit and about the rule you broke so I can feature you rebels.

I’m wearing a secondhand scarf ($3), my husband’s cardigan ($20), Herro Hachi shirt (won from RicAdeMus’ giveaway sponsored by Herro Hachi), J Brand jeans ($158), flats from the Philippines ($7), and JCPenney bag (free with gift card).
