WIWW: Breaking all My Norms

 



 

No one ever believes me when I tell them how quickly I get dressed for work in the morning. Although I'm a blogger and love all things pretty and wearable, I also enjoy my sleep and just like everyone else, I don't have time to spend countless hours each morning determining what to wear. My secret? Nearly ALL of my wardrobe is made up of neutrals. Okay so maybe that wasn't a ground breaking secret BUT it gets better. Since most of my clothes are neutrals  anything I "throw on" basically works. Once I discovered this little "color uniform" I became obsessed with navy, black, and browns (boring I know).

In an attempt to break myself out of my style norms, I purchased a pair of the red polka dot Rockstar jeans from Oldnavy when they first came out. I simply couldn't resist the polka dots and gave myself TWO pats on the back for putting down the navy color option and going for these instead.

  4. Cute outfit! They are neutrals with a twist. The detail on the pant, show and necklace make the outfit go from plain to pow!

  5. I love the pants! I like to mix up what colors I wear. I usually do a neutral pant (I know, I need to start breaking into the colored pant trend) and then a fun color top... in the fall, the boldest color I wear is orange.

  7. Those pants rock--I love the color and the cute dots! I bet they'll be great to mix in with all of your neutrals! I love wearing bright colors, but I think neutral shades of blue (denim, navy, gray-ish blue) dominate my wardrobe.

  8. So, so in love with those polka dot pants! And the color is so fun. I don't really have colors that dominate my wardrobe more like styles for instance button ups. I am a huge button-up fan.
