blood red, navy, green

I wore this outfit to Walmart of all places. The closest Walmart to me is like 7 miles away (REALLY FAR in Miami traffic) so BF and I made a day of it. We stopped for lunch at On the Border - he had never been before, and he'll never be back lol. Walmart was interesting, but unfortunately no pictures worthy of www.peopleofwalmart.com. I also wore this to an early dinner at Yardhouse. I love their food, but I hate how the bartender is kind of condescending if you just want to order a bud light - SORRY I don't want to try one of your 200 kinds of specialty beer on tap - just gimme a bud light and I'm happy. I'm also linking up a little late for the Petite Fashion Challenge. This month was hosted by Pandaphilia, and the theme was "Trend Benders" - we were challenged to choose a summer or fall trend and make it work for us. I've sort of got 3 trends going on here, one is definitely color blocking, another is colored jeans/bottoms, and the last is the oxblood/burgundy color for the fall. I might even re-use this post for the upcoming Bloggers Do it Better oxblood challenge hosted by Pretty Shiny Sparkly - double duty! I decided on the colors after watching Wendy's color wheel video on Youtube. I wouldn't say that I followed any of the suggested ways to choose color (no complementary/triadic/whatev) but it certainly helped to view the colors on a wheel, and I'll definitely consider a color wheel next time I'm having trouble matching. How do you decide which colors "go" together when getting dressed?

  6. Like Ashley, I wasn't expecting to see green pants, but I kind of love it! Blue and maroon are expected (it's what I wore....) but the green gives it that little something extra :)
