In keeping with my resolution to truly embrace wearing color in 2014, I have been sporting more looks like this one lately. While I took this picture well before the new year, I hadn’t really had the courage to wear this ensemble out until now; but I think it works!
I still tend to play it a little safe, making a lot of use of neutrals, but instead of limiting my splashes of color to a tiny bow or a great shoe, I’ve been going a little bolder and daring to play with more risky (for me) pieces, like these awesome, skinny leg, bright red jeans from Addition Elle.
A sexy, well fitting colored jean is an awesome place to start when expanding your use of color in your wardrobe because when paired with neutrals on top they make a bold statement without being overpowering or intimidating to wear.
I decided to add some sparkle to my look by mixing in a great beaded belt and a pointy, metal toed, Aldo flat to really get my point across; and that point was: This big, beautiful girl is no longer afraid to wear color, and she really likes shiny things! Yay!!!
Yup… Now that’s a statement, n’est ce pas?
