Daily Threads: Hello, Color

{Urban Outfitters Dress (similar), Belk Winter White Cardigan (similar) , Guess via TJ Maxx Cognac Booties (similar), Tights c/o We Love Colors}


1. What color dominates your closet?
Honestly, I can't find one. I definitely have colors throughout my closet, but nothing is overwhelming. If anything, neutrals dominate my closet. I usually stick to neutral outfits with a hint of color - whether through a piece of jewelry, cardigan, scarf, or tights. 



2. If money weren't an issue how would you change the color emphasis in your closet?
I would add lots and lots of jewel-toned clothes. I think jewel-tone tops, bottoms, cardigans, dresses, jewelry, and accessories are gorgeous. They are perfect colors for the whole year-round - and really, they are flattering on everyone. I love them. 



3. What is your mantra about mixing colors?
No more than three colors per outfit. Now there are definitely times when I have more colors going on, and I think that's fine. But in general, for me, I prefer to stick to three colors. 



4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits?
I usually incorporate color with one piece. Whether it's through a cardigan, a pair of pants, or accessories (a statement necklace or tights- see pictures above) there's going to be color somewhere - bright or subtle. 



5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color into their wardrobe?
That's easy: Suze. She always incorporated color into her daily looks and she always does a fabulous job at it! Other's that always impress me with color:Jenni, Sydney, Ashley, Kileen, and Natasha - just to name a few!    




A big shout-out to We Love Colors for these fabulous (and warm!) teal tights. I originally was going to wear black and gray pieces with the tights. Then I decided I would go all out with the color theme - and I am loving this teal and maroon combo.

Michelle said...

hello color indeed! this outfit mixes colors so wonderfully! and i so agree with #2 and #3 :)

M.J said...

Those teal tights look amazing!! I love jeweled tones myself and I'm thinking I need to get more of those colors in my closet too! I also like your rule of no more than 3 colors. I think any more than that might be too risky!

That is indeed some color you're working with friend! The color of the tights really put it over the top for me. So instead of just loving this outfit, I'm now kind of obsessed!

Eclectic Flair said...

You seriously get perfect outfits every time!!! I look forward to your posts more and more with every outfit!

Thoa said...

I am loving the color combination and I think the 3-color rule is good to stick to. However, I don't agree 100% with the pairing of the heels with those tights. Maybe white shoes, or a paler color? That would definitely go with your 3 color rule.

And beautiful hair! Can you do like hair tutorials or something? I love all your hairstyles!

The Suburb Experiment said...

I'm loving all the color I'm seeing today! I'm so inspired to wear some (tomorrow) I'm already greyed out today.

Stephanie said...

WOW. you pull this off amazingly. i never could. not those tights anyway. love it.

happy friday!

thelifeacademic said...

I'm really impressed not only with the color combo that you've put together, but with the moxie that it takes to wear it. I aspire to wear more bold, colorful, eye-catching outfits, but I tend to lose my nerve, particularly on work days. So I think I'm going to use your ensemble as a challenge to go more colorful... over the weekend.

Joanna said...

Teal is my favorite color!! Also is it just me or do you have like 100x more followers than last time 30for30 went on?! All your hard work looks like it's paying off girl!!

Sarah said...

Also I slightly overstated my enthusiasm for teal. It was formerly a favorite color, still a lot of affinity for it, but I am beyond in love with lime green for the time being :)
