it’s impossible to have the monday blues when you’re wearing a pink gingham blazer. if you want a sure-fire way to bring a smile to your face or a spring to your step just add a pop of color. there are extensive color theory studies that prove colors affect our mood. warm colors like red, orange, and yellow are energizing, passionate, and positive. cool colors like blue, green or purple are calming relaxing and reserved. while we roll out the red carpet for dignitaries and award ceremonies this color isn’t recommended for bedrooms. when it’s time to wind down for the evening rooms painted blue or green help calm us down.
and so it goes with fashion. vivid colors give us energy. subdued colors keep us relaxed. today’s ootd is a perfect example of how to add bright colors to your wardrobe. pink is known for its feminine qualities and approachability. does anyone remember the nursery rhyme sugar and spice and everything nice? a preppy gingham blazer would fall into that category. so i toughened the blazer up a bit by adding a graphic red t-shirt that adds a little power into the mix. white is a neutral that goes with everything. i love how these white chinos tone down the outfit and add casual ease.
graphic t-shirts (sold out similar here) are the perfect companion to blazers.
the pink gingham blazer is made of lightweight linen with faux horn buttons. dress it down with jeans or chinos or dress it up with a pencil skirt or dress.
all right, gang, it’s time to kick off another week. july is zipping by at a rapid-fire pace. so let’s enjoy each glorious hot summer day while we can. happy monday!
