pink gingham blazer

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.

    I have had my eye on that damn jacket! hahaaaaa. I have a few blue/white seersucker type jackets for summer, but I’m feeling like I need this one. I love that you used the red tee with it–I’ve coupled red and pink that way before, and the pants are the perfect foil. Now I have to go back and look at the jacket again. Like I told you before–you’re a very bad influence, young lady! Talbots have had some wonderful sales lately–I’ve picked up a few great buys recently.
