No Fear of Color!

It's no secret that I love color and use it liberally in my wardrobe. It's also no secret that I love colorful backdrops for my photos, but usually I try to find a balance between the two. In this post, clearly both the outfit and the wall are saturated in color! Originally, I had planned to wear this rainbow striped dress against a more neutral wall that didn't have quite so much going on, but unfortunately it was fenced off, which meant I needed a backup wall. I was hesitant to use the backup wall shown here, as it's really loud and very, very colorful, but I once I got the photos home, I was pleased with the overall effect. After all, if you're going to go for color, why not go all the way?

The rainbow color dress I have on is from SheIn. One of the things I love about their clothing is that it's inexpensive but, if styled correctly, can have a more high-end look. When I tried on this dress for the first time, I was a little unsure about it. (I also had a moment when I thought it closely resembled the uniforms for Hot Dog On a Stick!) My husband comforted me, however, saying that if I wore it with a belt and without the uniform hat I would look fine. Anyway, this dress, much like the photos, really grew on me, so it all worked out in the end. I guess you can say that you can never go wrong with color!

  1. I love this look and the backdrop. I'm also a colour junkie though ; P

    I have a vintage piece that is very similar to this but it is made out of terrycloth and longer. I love that piece!


  2. "without the uniform hat it looks fine." lol. i love this in front of the wall. yeah, there's a lot going on with both wall and dress, but there's also a sort of camouflage effect, lol.

  3. This print is amazing, adore that dress on you.


  4. That is such a fun and colourful dress! And even with the bright accessories and the colourful way it isn't too much, it just looks nice and cheerful! :)

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week :)
