Continuing on my self-care theme, bright colors help with my outlook on life. I NEED them. Of course, I know that everyone is different, but my mind needs to see bright colors and vibrant hues to keep my sanity. I like a sunny disposition, a sunny day, and that also extends to my wardrobe. I’ve been wearing so many neutrals and black outfits that I had almost forgotten how good I feel when I am wearing bright colors.
I wore a bright cobalt blue cardigan for Monday’s blog post, and then yesterday, I wore a navy sweater and added pops of bright color with my handbag and shoes. When I was scrolling through my Instagram feed, I was drawn to the photos where I was wearing bright colors. My face was more alive and radiant, so I decided to finish out the week wearing colorful outfits.
Do you like to wear bright colors, or do you shy away from any colors that draw attention to you? That was me years ago, the one who never wore red because I was afraid that someone would look at me. I just wanted to fade into the background and not be on anyone’s radar. I’m not sure when I finally got up the nerve to wear something red, but I must have survived the experience since I now LOVE wearing red. In fact, I love wearing bright colors in general!
This bright pink lurex sweater is lightweight, and it looks great worn alone or with a layered piece like this vest or a cardigan. It can be worn for either dress or casual wear, and it is a lightweight knit fabric. The fabric has plenty of stretchiness, so you don’t feel confined, and none of my rolls are shown. I “ALMOST” ordered the golden shimmer color to wear with the faux fur vest but went with a bright color, pink, instead. I am wearing a size 1 in the sweater, and I think it fits me great.
Animal print is big in the fashion industry, and this year is no exception. These tiger print chandelier earrings give some flair to my outfit, and they are lightweight, so they don’t tug on my ear. The earrings are perfect to wear with this vest, but they will look great with a lot of my clothing. They are a part of the jewelry sale going on that is buy one and get one 50% off!
Okay, let’s talk about this faux fur vest! 😍 The rich and luxurious look of this tiger print vest is amazing. This vest is a little longer in length, which I find flattering. As you can see, the vest hits me right below my hips, helping to create the long, lean look that I am after.
The colors are deep and rich, and the sheen from the fur looks incredible. This beautiful, stunning, gorgeous statement vest is on sale for 50% off!!!
These jeans are on repeat. I wore them for the photoshoot for Monday’s post, and I couldn’t help myself from grabbing them for this look. I love these jeans, but I decided to wear them with this outfit to balance out my body. The vest is bigger and bulkier than my normal body, making me look bigger on the top half of my body. These dark rinse flare jeans help to create symmetry by making my bottom half look wider. This is a good tip for all of you apple shape ladies, balance out your wider top half by wearing wide-leg, straight leg, or flare leg pants.
I am wearing my usual size 10 in these jeans, so I would say they run true to size. The length is a tad bit long at 33″, so consider that. I prefer my jeans on the longer side to wear heels, and just in case they shrink in the wash.
I opted to wear my Vince Camuto black Gradina block heel booties with these flare jeans. The 3 1/2″ block heel is perfect for these jeans that are 33″ long. I love the brown sole on these booties and the way that it outlines the black leather upper. These run true to size, and I am wearing my normal size 9. The booties are on sale for 33% off, so if you are in the market for a good pair of black ankle boots, be sure to check these out.
