While folding laundry last week I looked at the pile after and was like, wait…really? There is not one color other than grey, brown tan, olive, and black here. No bold colors, hell not even a red. I literally took a pic of the pile anticipating a post. I’m lucky there are a few patterns here, but damn….this just looks boring.
Don’t get me wrong, I love bold colors, I am just not a fan of wearing them unless I’m out for a run, which makes no sense. And, if you have followed the blog at all you know I’m constantly questioning what is appropriate as I age and wondering “Can I pull this off” Not that I ever loved wearing bold colors but I now have in my head for some reason now that wearing vibrant colors are not for a woman almost 50.
But wait….maybe I don’t “really” feel this way…
What I found when going through some photos is I have 2 totally different styles in relation to print and color…my everyday bland, minimal print style that I wear all the time and my running style.
Here is an example of what I mean:
Everyday outfits: I ONLY buy bland colors. You will not catch me wearing a bright pink or purple sweater EVER.
Running outfits: Bring on the BOLD and CRAZY…The brighter the better! I remember telling one of my friends one time that I felt like an Easter egg!
I find this totally hilarious!
How do you feel about this? What colors do you feel great in and how do you pull off bright colors and crazy patterns?
