Killer Color Combo: Orange and Blue
Ok guys, this is new on the blog and my heart is pumping a little bit. I’m not what you will consider a fashion expert, in case you see the pictures and think that I’m just being silly. I’m more like a girly girl that loves colored pencils and bright pink shoes. I also love my handmade backpack made in Oaxaca, Mexico where I can fit my doodling notebook and favorite markers as much as any designer handbag. Sometimes I wear comfortable things and other times I try to be “trendy” and wear high heels all day long. I can be both, I guess, I enjoy fashion magazines but I also spend my mornings reading about crafts from around the world. It’s the color that really defines my style.
I have been asking a lot about how to match colors in outfits so I thought that sharing the color combinations that I personally wear would be a great way to inspire, not only my readers, but myself too because it will really push me to try amazing colorful clothes and interesting color combos, oh yes, my job is very hard.
So Saturday morning I drove to a pretty spot in the bay area. It was such a beautiful day, warm and sunny. I discovered how hard it is to walk on a pier with high heels and that people look at you funny when you are trying to pose creatively in the middle of a park while your husband does his best to act like a photographer. Nine out of ten of the pictures didn’t include my head or my feet, but hey, I loved that he helped me!
Something I realized after a couple of shoots was that when Jordan asked me to make scary faces is when I started feeling comfortable. I’m just a bit weird and I love making Sméagol faces for some reason, yeah, like The Lord of the Rings, that is what I am referring to.
So here is how awesome an orange shirt looks with navy blue accessories. I also added some neutrals to the look, a long semi-transparent black skirt and white shoes.
If there is something I love as much as color, it’s really big accessories, the bigger the better! These ones are two of my favorite necklaces. I found them in a vintage store in Asheville NC, $1 per piece. That’s what I call a fashion score!
