I don’t know if my parents and siblings had anything to do with my favorite color, but I’ve loved blue for as long as I can remember. Give me 50 shades of blue, and I can assure you that all of them can be pulled off easily by almost anybody. In my opinion, blue is a little understated, but classic in its own little way. A cool cobalt blue can actually deliver just as well as flaming hot red! Sky blue is also a versatile color that can be used for all seasons. Usually, we associate this light kind of blue with spring/summer, but contrary to popular belief, they can also work well for fall/winter. Here are two examples that demonstrate the power of this super cool shade! It has largely to do with what you style your items with. In this case, pairing light blue with black, white and metallic silver is a good idea.
Now here’s something that every Potterhead should have, I think. It doesn’t really state Hogwarts anywhere and I know the school is in Scotland but it reminds me so much of Harry Potter all the same. <3
Comfortable dressing at its best. I’m feeling quite the opposite of what’s written on my new sweatshirt, but I see it as a good conversation topic for someone like me who fails so bad at small talk and… well, talking to other people in general. I could already imagine it — “Why do you have woe written on your shirt?” / “I’m actually super happy right now because… (state random reasons here in an attempt to salvage the conversation and not make it throw itself off a cliff)” Yeah, I know that it’s lame, contrived things like these that never successfully push through. But it’s fun thinking about them anyway.
Because my sweatshirt is so gloomy (but might I add that it’s my most comfortable one to date, as expected from The Orphan’s Arms), I made sure to wear happy printed bottoms and colorful shoes! Yay!
Made in England The Orphan’s Arms creates fine handprinted apparel that draws information from old English heritage! What a wonderful way to celebrate the rich history of your country, yes? What I love most about this clothing label is that everything is so tastefully done without being too hardsell and explicit about the inspiration for their prints. Talk about wearable original art!
This is one of the few times I agree to wear graphic shirts. I couldn’t resist the cute pale lavender color, which I felt would stand out more if I wore black as a contrasting color. Here I am looking different with leather shorts and sky high black platform boots. I know I promised to give all my black clothes a rest in 2011, but now I think I’m crawling back to my 2010 penchant for all things black!
Here’s a better look at the shirt. The fabric is too incredibly soft and high-quality that you wouldn’t want to take it off at the end of the day, lol. I am so hooked on these shirts. I want more!
Channeling my inner rebel child with this coordinate. It’s something super casual but with badass rockstar elements to make it all the more interesting! How do you like this look on me?
