Fashion Beauty Friend Friday - I Puffy Heart Colors

This week's FBFF, hosted by Katy, of Modly Chic, is all about COLORS- one of my FAVORITE topics! I was so glad when Rochelle reminded me about FBFF, because after my uncle's passing last week, I completely missed it (I'm sure you understand) and didn't get back on track. I seriously need to sign up for the group emails. So, thanks, friend. :)

1. What color dominates your closet? 

I just walked in there to take a gander, and it seems as though I have one to two items in most colors. But if I had to choose one color that stood out, I think I might have a bit too much grey. For someone who puffy hearts color as much as I do, grey is a pretty sad sack for closet domination.

2. If money weren't an issue how would you change the color emphasis in your closet? 

I want bright, royal, saturated colors to fill my closet. I love colors like Crayola's WIld Strawberry, the hued mustard everyone's been sporting in cardigan form, lately, and the royal blue that Kate Middleton is already known for. I also really love deep plum, kelly green and Tiffany blue. Oh, and blush. So, it seems there would be a lot of work happening if money were no object. And by work, I mean fun. And by fun, I mean SHOPPING!

black lace trim cami: Old Navy
floral tank: WalMart
green polka dotted skirt: I made it
black cardigan: Old Navy
rubine tights: c/o We Love Colors
black boots: Payless
purple necklace: Swap gift from Victoria

3. What is your mantra about mixing colors? 

Do it! Do it! Do it! Party like a rockstar. You only live once! Do whatever YOU WANT. 
Dress for yourself.
Get a little crazy up in here.
And if you're not comfortable, just live vicariously.

I apologize for the excessive mantras. I just wanted you to know that I can read. I understood the question. I just like to excel overdo it, sometimes often all the time.

4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits? 

For me? Well, I walk into my closet, pick a bunch of stuff that doesn't go together, and hang it together to make an "outfit." Then, I wear it. I'm so not kidding. There are also always tights in 51 outrageous colors + patterns, which is a super fun way to spiff things up.

5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color into their wardrobe? 

Most of the bloggers I read are pretty great at incorporating color. I think that's a draw for me, since I really like color. People that come to the top of my head for color inspiration are:

- Melissa - A Working Mom's Closet
- Collette - Statements in Fashion
- Ashley J. - A Fashion Fixation
- Louise - Coffee & a Cardigan
- Ariana - FATale Fashion
- Jill - Spoils of Wear

Day 20: A hobby of mine- 
Other than singing, sewing, spending time with my girl, and cooking...
my favorite hobby is probably sleeeeeeeep.

Wow. Those years rolled by so quickly.
