Incorporating Color

I recently stopped into Old Navy {I haven't been there in months...maybe a year...I forgot how fantastic it is!} and walked out with three things...all navy blue.  Now I know what I like and I stick to what I like.  But unless I want to look like a blueberry, I have to add a little more color to my wardrobe to mix things up!

Since most of my clothing pieces are in the grey, blue, and black family, I look to colorful accessories to add a pop of color with out straying away from colors I know look well with my skin tone and hair color {not to mention more slimming, right!?}

Here are a few examples...

A pink belt makes this otherwise dark outfit fun and funky...

This almost all white dress looks bright and cheery with a colorful bag...

Cardigans also work great at adding color plus warmth to an outfit...

Okay so maybe I really like navy...and red and pinks!  

How do you incorporate color into your look?

  1. great and keep up with good work. Some fine work and impressive too. Thanks for posting and will look for more..

  2. My closet is composed of very few colors: red/pink, purple, gray and black. And that's it. Every time I go shopping, I have to force myself to add some yellow, green (not blue, because I hate blue. Only if it's navy blue!) or orange. I do have an awful amount of pink accessories though! My mom once had to forbid me of buying black items! She said I looked like a teenage widow! Since then I've putting more effort on incorporating color!

  3. I LOVE Old Navy and wish we had it here in OZ. The pink belt is super cute as is the kid in the background. haha.

    I also love your hair in the last pic. (I am in desperate need for a haircut so I notice these things. :D )

    If I have a really bland outfit I like to add a bright lipstick to make me less drab and more fab. :D

  4. I love me some ON! you look adorable in all of those outfits!

  5. I was thinking the haircut thing too! I love the bangs! Cute outfits too. I just got the cutest dress one-piece suit from old navy. Seriously. It's amazingly cute. The best part? Cardholders got 40% off and I had $25 in rewards (from using the card. The rewards last a really long time so you can stock them up.) So my price = FREE! Love it. Of course I didn't make it out without spending any money... but we won't go there. Here it is...only on me it goes down to cover the bikini part and looks more like a dress... I'm not sure if it's supposed to, but it looks cute that way so that's probably how I'll wear it.

  6. I love the pink belt and the purse. Those are great ways to add color and change up an outfit.
