Friend Friday: Color Wars


I decided to join the FBFF bandwagon!  Here are this week's questions/responses...

1. What color dominates your closet? 
Honestly, I have a pretty good mix of color in my closet.  I'm typically most drawn to jewel tones - they suit my skin tone.  Lately, I've also enjoyed neutrals that are easy to mix-and-match.

2. If money weren't an issue how would you change the color emphasis
in your closet? 
I wouldn't mind adding some more green.  It comes in so many pretty shades!  I really think it's important to have a variety of colors, though.

3. What is your mantra about mixing colors?
I wouldn't say I have a mantra per se, but I trust my instincts.  I don't consult a color wheel - I just use my imagination.  If it looks great to me, then I wear it.  I get a lot of color mixing ideas from other bloggers, as well.

4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits?
I incorporate color into my outfits in a lot of different just depends on my mood.  Sometimes it's a colorful outfit altogether, other times it's incorporated through a cardigan or pretty blouse.  A fun way of bringing in some color is through accessories.  I'm a sucker for a good pair of tights and a vibrant purse, and I have a blue pea coat that I absolutely love.  Also, who doesn't love a pretty colored scarf?

5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color
into their wardrobe?
Ariel of Artfully Awear does a fantastic job!  She uses art as the inspiration for her outfits, which are always colorful, bold, and interesting.  Although we don't necessarily have the same aesthetic, I love to go see what she's wearing.  It never fails to capture my interest.
Kristine of Kristine. Or Polly. also does a wonderful job with color.  Her clothes are very wearable and down-to-earth, but she mixes colors and patterns in a way I'm not brave enough to, and she always looks superb.
So many bloggers do a great job with color, so the list could go on and on.

Here are some of the ways I've used color in my outfits:

Thanks so much! It's fun to look back through pictures and see how I styled things. I've been obsessed with those mustard tights and have had to stop myself from wearing them repeatedly!
