Think In Color.

Do you ever look in your closet and think "Boy do I have alot of black!" I Promise you aren't alone. We humans are creatures of habit, so we opt for what is easy & familiar. That means when it comes to clothes we tend to gravitate towards the same color, such as black, because its easy. Well its summer & if there is ever a time to break out & wear color it is now! So don't pass by the bright pops of color in the store.

Today I am styling a great little number I scooped up at Anthropologie at the end of the summer last year. Its a pencil skirt which  means its appropriate for office wear but the colors can be off putting on how to style it for work, so I styled it 2 ways. The first set is a fun way to dress down the pencil skirt & to make it more casual by pulling out the colors in the skirt with coordinating accessories. The second way is by pairing it with classic black accessories which tones down the outfit & makes it more business appropriate.
