Wearing a Bright Color

Feeling the winter blues?  Wear a bright color! I think we all have certain colors we lean towards.  I'm a blue and gray type person.  If something is available in either of those shades, I don't care what other color it comes it - that's what I'm getting. I can't get away from it, its just what I like.  But every now and again its fun to throw in a pop of color and change things up.

I probably own the least amount of red items than any other color...well and pink (anything in that color family).  For some reason it just always feels out of my comfort zone.  I found this knit blazer at Target several months back on clearance (shout out to target clearance) for $9.98.  I decided for that price I could go out on a whim and buy a red blazer.  Red might not always be my thing but a blazer kind of is.

For some great reason we are having awesome weather this week.  Initially I was going to pair this with boots and a scarf but it was way to warm here for that.  Leopard print flats and a pretty statement necklace did the trick.

I took a quick before shot,( if you want to call it that) to show that by just adding a pop of color and a few accessorizes you can really change up your basics.  Although I would totally just wear the t shirt and jeans too.

So what about you guys...Do you have a favorite go to style color?  What about a color you rarely wear?  Share with me!

Linking up with Putting Me Together this week!


  1. Very pretty outfit! That jacket is gorgeous and so is the necklace.

  2. I really like this outfit. So simple and classic and yet different. I remember seeing that necklace and this is making me regret not getting it.

  3. I'm with you - the red color family isn't my favorite either. But I love that you ended up getting the blazer because it is the perfect compliment to this outfit. You look great!

  4. The blazer and necklace really pop against the rest of the outfit! (I"d totally wear the tee and jeans and flats on their own too haha)

    1. Thank you!! Haha, yes you can't go wrong with a comfy tee and jeans!!
