Riot of Color


how to wear a plaid shirt, the beauty beau

Hey babes! I shared this look on Instagram last week and joked about wanting to save it for 4th of July. You have to admit, it would make the perfect look for that, right? Though it would be very appropriate for then, I figured I’d go on and post it now, in the event some of the items I wore here sell out before then.

We all know that’s highly likely with the seasons and trends constantly changing. I’ve been trying to get better at posting outfits immediately, but sometimes it can be challenging, especially when I like keeping at least 20 extra outfits on my external hard drive. I was burned once before when a natural disaster came and I had no content to post, even though that’s normally not a priority for most people, but it is for me, since it helps to keep my mind off the actual disaster haha. 😆 I am extra careful now about that and rather have more than enough content produced, rather than not enough. I hear of bloggers shooting 1 and 2 outfits at a time and I really just can’t imagine. I’m more of a “knock out several outfits in one sitting” kind of blogger, but I totally get those who simply don’t have the time. Just do it however you can! 😄

    This outfit is so summery. I love the plaid and white jeans. It’s pretty cold where I live so it will be a while before I can wear white jeans. Enjoy the sun!

    Candace! Those lace up sandals are making me dream of spring and summer!
    I adore the color! Looks so amazing styled with white jeans!
    The color combo is perfect!
    Hopefully spring will come before we know it so I can wear sandals as well lol

    You look head to toe perfect!!! And yes, this look would be perfect for 4th of July LOL but why wait?
    I also take a million photos in one day! I always try to be ahead of content for at least two weeks, ideally (and sometimes it happens) a month!! It’s my full time job, so I can’t risk not having pics, so I totally get you 🙂
    Beautiful photos you guys created here 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    I wish I had the luxury of having 20 outfit photos on hand at all times! it’s so hard to shoot so many outfits in one day for me because I have to carry it all in a suitcase and lug it around with me on location. The lace up heels are really adorable <3

    This outfit is giving me life! it’s great for everyday but you’re right, it will be on point for the 4th of July celebration.
    Love the way you styled your pieces and those shoes are very feminine and chic. They really add visual interest to your entire combo.
    Thanks for sharing! Love it..

    I adore how you styled this look! The white jeans with the punch of color from the top and shoes are too good! I also love your jewelry. So well done, babe!
