Stripes and Blue

   Lately I've been quite fond of greenish shades of blue. At a thrift store on our vacation, I bought a t-shirt in this color family; I believe it is somewhere between aqua and robin's egg blue. What do you think? In any case, it's a lovely, bright color!
   One item in my closet that I like to pair with colors is my black and gray striped cotton skirt. I bought it earlier this year at a thrift store for $10, though I had just seen the same kind at Target a month or so before! It looks good with both warm and cool colors. Though I like the slightly asymmetrical design, it's too short for me to be comfortable wearing it without leggings.
  A few days ago, I put the skirt, top, and leggings together. I decided that it was a good day to try putting one of my favorite scarves in my hair. After folding in the same way shown in the tutorial of my last post, I just tied it on! In keeping with the color scheme, I wore a heart pendant on my silver chain. After slipping my brown flats on, I was ready to go outside! :)



 


   I hope that this post inspired you in some way. Perhaps you will put a scarf in your hair or risk trying a matchy matchy outfit for the cute effect! Until next time, happy styling!
