|Happy Friday from Bridget!|
1. What color dominates your closet?
Purple. I have tons of purple, and it's not even my favorite color. Whenever I find a top I like, purple is usually one of the color options, and it ends up being the option that appeals to me the most. I also like how the color looks on me, whether it's more of a lavender, or if it's a rich jewel tone grape.
2. If money weren't an issue how would you change the color emphasis in your closet?
Lately, I've been trying to work more yellow into my closet since that is my favorite color. Yellow makes me happy; and if I didn't look like a kook, I'd probably wear it everyday.
I would also actually do more neutrals, especially black and gray. Most people have an abundance of black, but I'm realizing now that I work in a more corporate environment that I have very little. Tailored black pieces just have a way of giving someone extra polish, and that's something I'd like to have more of.
3. What is your mantra about mixing colors?
I go with the Stacy and Clinton view of "colors don't have to match; they have to go." For instance, today I'm wearing a printed dress that has pattern of dark brown, cream, rusty red, and dark orange. I accessorized with a bright yellow scarf and maroon We Love Colors tights. Even though there's no yellow or maroon in the dress, the colors look really good together. And I don't think it looks too schizophrenic.
4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits?
It's usually with a bright colored top and neutral pants. If I'm wearing a neutral outfit, I'll add colored tights or a scarf.
5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color into their wardrobe?
Jessica from What I Wore totally inspired my outfit for today. She always looks great when she does the printed dress with colored tights look. Kendi from Kendi Everyday is also a favorite style inspiration of mine--I like how she's daring with some of her color combinations.
