on the mend (in a color medley)

IMG_4172

Sorry for the delay in posting this week, readers. I’ve unfortunately caught whatever virus is going around, despite my best efforts to avoid it. I’m on the mend, though, drinking lots of fluids, and making my comeback! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start…though seeing how it’s actually mid-week, I guess I should be saying, I hope the week is going well thus far!

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I’ve been working on taking some more “fashion risks” lately but styling monochromatic looks, while also styling seeming “random colors” together. It’s funny how being a blogger pushes you out of your comfort zone, but I personally think it really does! If you’re in the market for taking some fashion risks of your own, monochromatic looks are very easy to use as a starting point. If want to try putting random colors together, you can try working within color families. In this look, I stuck with jewel toned colors to create harmony within different colors and patterns worn together.

2) I’m still working on incorporating silk scarves into my fashion repertoire. It’s actually a lot easier than I thought it would be! Though, I’ve found that silk scarves from standard retail shops are quite pricey ($50+), whereas they seem to be much more affordable via consignment and thrift shops ($3+). For more scarf inspiration, check out Pinterest, where you will find a ton of silk scarf ideas! One of my favorite boards can be found here.

Anyone else pairing different colors together? Any color pairing recommendations? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so very much!

  1. Hope you are better now… am liking your styling the scarves with outfits, a pretty change must say. Love the bellies color..sooo gorgeous.

    Do check out my new 2 posts on blog, don’t know why but i am unable to see them in reader, so i guess nobody is able to see them 😯

    Take care.
    ❤ Ruchi

  2. Ever since I saw your red and navy blue checked (or houndstooth(?)) cigarette pants I have had dreams about them. Now these pants. Hmph. 💘💗😓🙌

  3. Glad you’re “on the mend”. I love wearing scarves! Colour combos and textures do get me to step out of my wearable comfort zone, LOL. I’m rather traditional. Your posts show me what ‘stepping out’ of the zone can do. Thanks for sharing even when you’re sick!~cheers, love those capri ❤

  4. I hope you get better soon! I think I am on the brinks of getting sick my co-workers have the same bug and I don’t think I can fight the sickness off any longer. Beautiful incorporation of colors into this outfit. I need to try adding silk scarfs into my look and see what I come up with.

  5. LOVE LOVE LOVE the color of the scarf and shoes. And the poka dots are just so cute! Hope by now you are feeling better. I was down with a “bug” for a couple of weeks …. just miserable. BIG (((HUGS))) Pretty Woman! Love, Amy

  6. I find it much easier to style lots of different colours than to do monochromatic looks. I think I need to push my fashion comfort boundaries a bit more this year. 😀
