I love color. Every now and then, I try to do the chic dark-neutrals look...and I like how easy it is to look put together in those colors...but it just feels wrong to me. I need color in my outfit to make me feel bright and happy!
This outfit has one of my favorite color schemes in it: purple and red. Occasionally, I go crazy with colorblocking, but I decided to separate the two colors with jeans for a more subdued look. These red heels have been with me for the past few years or so; somehow they add a fun pop of color to almost every outfit. I think every girl should have a pair of red or red-orange shoes to spice up any blah outfit! The head scarf was added for a bit of an unexpected color. I always think it's interesting to add an element that doesn't quite match... (But then again, sometimes I remind myself of that crazy art teacher we all probably had in elementary school...)
