Why hello there

I know I'm in fashion school and should probably be doing a bunch of creative color combinations with analogous, tertiary, and complementary colors...but I can't help but to fall back on my old love; extreme color matching.

Maybe you think it's ugly (most likely the case), but I love nothing more than to wear an entire outfit from head to toe in the same two colors. You best believe that if I had royal blue or cranberry colored shoes they would have gone with this outfit, too! ;) Anyways, accept my love for ugly, obvious color combinations please...it's not going away any time soon I'm afraid, heh.

Thankfully tomorrow I lucked out and don't have any finals! It should be a nice day of relaxing, exchanging Christmas gifts, and seeing friends before we all jet off to our separate abodes across the country. I have one last final Friday (as if making two garments and a 25 page design journal wasn't enough... *bitter*), and then it's off to home in the afternoon! I am so looking forward to hugging my family, swinging my little sister around, and of course...suffocating my kitty with love :)

See you all soon! x

With much love, Lauren.

Ahh, the end of the first semester of college is so exciting! You're lucky you get out early...I don't get out till the 20th ):
But, on to your outfit...I'm glad you rock the matchiness with pride! Keep going at it, because you're great at it! Love this color combo.

It's not ugly at all. At least not to me. I'm known to do the same. And that's what I love about your style, so don't ever change that please. =) And yay for Christmas time with the family. It's the best.

I love the extreme color matching! These color look gorgeous together and you look so super pretty in this outfit.

Jeannee said...

LOVE THIS! This DOES match :) I once knew a guy who had a color of the day, and that would be reflected in his suit, his tie, his socks, his shoes -- when it was a green day, we called him 'the German leprechan' ;)

Kezzie said...

This outfit is the opposite of ugly! I love how you put this together, sometimes being matchy matchy looks best. Oh, and I think you rock the beret. You inspire me to wear mine more often :)

Enjoy your Christmas break!
