Happy New Year Guys! We made it into 2015!
I hope it’s been a good journey so far for you? So my 2015 kicked off with lots of reflection and moments where I spent time thankful for my journey in all areas of my life, instead of trying to do more. I took a step back to appreciate how hard I’ve worked, how far I’ve come, my losses, and the battles I’ve won with God being my All-in-all. Yass! He’s faithful.
Perhaps some of us don’t need to improve on the 10,000 things we have on our list for 2015 as the FIRST thing, but instead take a step or two back to examine how far we have come, appreciate these things; then everything will begin to fall into place with less pressure and genuine passion. This will in fact make your list a lot easier to work with throughout the year
So I not only have an outfit post, also I have some style tips on wearing bold hues during seasons other than summer.Well who says you can’t wear bold colors in the winter or fall? I do understand the preferences some people may have, but there is no rule. I come from a place where we are unafraid to play with colors. Perhaps it is because we don’t have winter or fall. I personally find fall and winter dull and gloomy sometimes and as I said in one my previous posts over the summer ” Vibrant or bright colors boost your mood”. That’s just one great reason to take advantage of it out of many. I put up a visual chart that turns out really helpful with wearing and combining bold colors in the post here — Color Chart
I’ve also listed tips and easy ways of styling bold colors confidently during seasons other than summer at the end of this post, includingreasons why you shouldn’t be intimidated by these.

P.S : I still looove my dark and grey outfits.Also you are able to disagree with all of these, this is my take and I’ve just seen it work for me and others over and over. I’m only here to make you feel a little more comfortable wearing bold hues. I hope it helps you.
Why wear bright colors in the fall/winter anyway?
It brightens up rainy days! (Wear bright colors and change your mood)
I like it when it rains lightly and I’m hanging out indoors. When you are out there trying to get things done, it appears gloomy or dull when it rains and somehow people feel drawn to looking like the weather (Rain or snow – Nah uh! ). I don’t want my exciting morning mood switched up and controlled by the weather just like that. However it’s reasonable to wear rain boots of course when it rains or wear coats. What am I trying to say? It’s nice to see someone with a polka dot shirt or boots, an orange umbrella, or even a nude coat. Trust me it does something to your mood unconsciously and consciously.
You flaunt your individuality BUT don’t OVERDO it
First I think you appear confident when you throw on bright hues and it also says non-verbally that I’m, depending on what colors,
-sociable ( Did you know that wearing orange gives the impression that you’re willing to socialize without verbally describing it? )
Let there be light
You set the mood for others and for yourself in making better decisions.Research has shown that the brain very often influences our choices when it comes to what food we choose to eat, places we go, and clothes we wear ( cool facts, nerdy me x_x ) . Well then, attract good energy, spread your light
Do’s with wearing colors
+ Start with shoes or accessories – glasses, hat necklaces, belts, umbrellas,
+ If you want to start easy, start out with your nail polish colors and leave everything else toned down
+ Wear leather, its a great mix with your colors, it balances out everything for you ( Like I’m wearing it in this post)
+ Throw on a bright lipstick (subtle) but eye-catching and in addition to that, add a touch of gold or silver detail to your look
+ Just your purse can do it, a bold color purse can be an energizing item
Not a lot actually, again – DON’T OVERDO IT! Especially at work or special occasions with certain preferences. Otherwise have fuuun!
