Pops of Color

It's hard to believe but I used to have a lot of black and darker colors in my wardrobe. Now, whenever I have an article of clothing that's black and white, I always find a way to incorporate some pop of color into the outfit to make it more fun. Take, for example, these wolfstooth pants: while they would look chic with just a black sweater, the addition of my bright yellow sweater and pink bow flats definitely takes it to the next level! It's worth noting that these satin pink bow flats (also available here) are now on sale. If you've been following my blog for the last few months, you will know that I have been wearing them non-stop! They've definitely become my go to shoes for this season and, hopefully, for years to come!

Speaking of color, this wall behind me just happened to be the perfect backdrop to my outfit but it was totally unplanned. Originally, I had mapped out another wall near this particular area of the Arts District of Los Angeles. Unfortunately, the wall scene in Los Angeles is very ephemeral and the mural I had planned on using was covered in graffiti. It was time to figure out a plan B quick, as the sun was setting on the city but, luckily, I remembered seeing this colorful mural on the side of a building, so I decided it would do in a pinch. To be honest, I think it may have worked out even better than the backdrop I had originally wanted to use, so I can't complain!
