Live and Learn

 

jeanne-fbc-hm-black-white-melange-knit-sweater-loft-modern-skinny-white-jeans-andie-black-otk-over-the-knee-boots-gray-wool-coat-5Up until about a year ago, I would have described my style as quite colorful.  I loved to wear the rainbow, and often did.  But recently, I have found myself trending towards a bit more of a muted palate.  Basically, my closet is chock-full of neutrals with pops of burgundy and olive and rare sightings of blue and yellow.

The funny thing is I used to think owning every hue meant that I could always find ways to mix and match. However, what ended up happening in reality is nothing really quite went together and I could never find cohesion.  Now that I am a bit more choosey in my color schemes, I find that almost everything goes together perfectly and it is a lot easier to throw together an outfit.

I consider this a valuable lesson learned.  Find your shades and stick with them, then add patterns, textures and accessories accordingly.  Now if only it hadn’t taken me decades to figure this out, I really could have saved myself a lot of frustrating mornings trying to get dressed…not to mention a terrible outfit or two.
