Seeing Colors







Hat: Hinge | Tank: Mossimo | Jeans: James Jeans | Similar Jeans: Paige DenimBP | Similar Purses: Sole SocietyHobo | Heels: Steve Madden | Lip Pencil: MAC in Spice | Lipstick: MAC in Kinda Sexy

People ask me all the time why I choose to put certain colors together, whether it's a top with shoes or the color of my lipstick with the entirety of my outfit. I have never thought that things need to match perfectly or that there are strict "rules" per say, but I mostly try to match things based on their tones. I like to make things as simple as warm tones or cool tones. For instance, I wanted to wear the hat seen above with a simple outfit so the hat is my jumping off point. Well, the hat has a very warm leather band around it so I chose a top and shoes that have warm tones as well. If the hat had a blue band, I probably would have chosen a grey top and black shoes because those are much cooler tones. I love gold jewelry right now and I pretty much try to wear it with everything I can get away with but if I am wearing an outfit that has no warm tones whatsoever then I wear silver jewelry because grey is a much cooler tone. I have two go-to lip colors as well. This lipstick in Kinda Sexy is a very warm pink with gold undertones so I wear it when I am wearing warm tones. This lipstick in Pink Plaid is a much cooler pink with blue undertones so I wear it with cool tones. I am by no means a professional, but that is how I start my thought process and how I plan most of my outfits. 

I have been addicted to skinny jeans lately so the other day I decided to switch it up and pull my favorite bell bottoms out of the drawer. I forgot how comfortable they are. They only have these specific ones left in two sizes but they run big so make sure to size down a size or two. I also linked some similar styles in case you don't fit into those specific sizes. This tank/shell is the same as the black one from this post but in olive. It is the perfect tank to own in multiple colors and it is super inexpensive. This hat!!!! I mean, all the heart eyes emojis!! I was so excited when I found it the other day! Seeing as it isn't acceptable to wear a wool hat during the spring or summer (you might sweat to death), I have been on the hunt for something breathable and cute for the days that I don't have time to wash my hair. Well, this hat is just that and it comes in six colors!! I paired this outfit with my super comfortable block heels and cognac crossbody bag and it couldn't have been any better for a long day out.
