Daily Threads: Blending




top & shorts: gap
earrings: c/o jess lc

You know those pictures where people are painted to blend into a wall? That's what I feel like now that I'm seeing these pictures. I need to find a new wall. The tribal print against this was great, the wall worked perfectly. Today, not the case. My top and my legs blend right in - move a bit farther down, my shoes disappear into the sidewalk. Sigh. Lesson learned. 

I really do love this look - even if it completely blends into the background. I love this color combo. It's different, but it works. Pastels look so pretty together. Also, this is my first time in heels since my foot injury - it feels nice.

You are right ;-) Minus the shorts, this wall could have been your unlikely style inspiration! But I like it, and I'm sure it does work pretty well when not confronted with a wall like that!

Your outfit looks so cool and light. Love the color of the shorts; what a great deviation from the typical black or blue styles.
