The Last LeafPosted: December 14, 2011
I blame blogging for putting into my head the idea of only wearing certain colors during a certain time/season. Take today’s outfit for example. Before I started the blog, I would not think twice about wearing an orange sweater (it appears red in the photos, but it’s actually more of a rust/pumpkin color. I need to fix my white balance) in December – not that I had one back then. But now I’m like, “Is it too much of a fall color? Should I just wear holiday colors now?” Which is silly, of course.
Still, I feel that, for me at least, there is a certain amount of playing dress up when it comes to personal style blogging. I just have to make sure that what I wear every day is not too much of a costume that I lose the “personal” part of it. So for this, I made it even more of a “fall” outfit by adding the leaf brooch. Winter or not, I’m still going to dress like it’s fall if I want to.
