Happy Tuesday everyone,
Amidst my travels I'm really pleased to finally bag a chance to do an OOTD (outfit of the day) post. The location of my shoot, none other than my beautiful second home country: BELIZE. I opted for a rugged and natural background because I think its different from the picture perfect city buildings and whatnot. You know like squeaky clean locations. Bleh. Kinda tired of those. I love trashy and rugged locations for shoots because it gives a total contrast between my outfits and the location itself, especially if I'm wearing loud colours and the background is neutral.
What I Wore:
TURBAN: The star of my outfit. I styled a cobalt blue pashmina into this edgy look to complement my outfit. Because I knew my background would be neutral I wore colors that would create a strong contrast i.e blue/peach. Of course I couldn't go wrong with my color wheel to find inspiration and since orange is opposite blue, they are complementary shades that naturally contrast, thus they go beautifully well together. In case you're wondering.....the color Peach is from the Orange family.
MAKEUP: I used a bold pink lippie called 'Showstopper' from Sacha Cosmetics and a neon orange eyeshadow from a no name palette.
PEACH JEANS: Due to the fact that I've officially joined the colored denim club I got this pair of vibrant babies in the neighbouring Guatemala. Jeans on a whole are versatile and comfortable but let's face it after a while, traditional blue denim gets boring. Wearing jeans in a striking color like peach is an easy way to update your look and while they aren't as versatile as blue denim, they're sure to stay at the center of attention. For a simple everyday look, something more casual you can wear your peach bottoms with a basic white or black top coupled with ballet flats or a stylish pair of sandals.
RINGS: I recommend gold or accessories with orange undertones. Blue accessories can work as well but I think the way I styled myself in terms of colour placement, is satisfactorily balanced.
SHADES: These have the ability to transform any outfit like wham bam. Thank you ma'am. Find a pair that pairs well with any outfit and you've found yourself #noshade Truth bomb!
HIGH LOW DRESS: I found this dress on a whim while shopping in Belize. On sight I immediately fell in love with it because yesss its black and white. Oooohhh and it has a cinched waist. I love a tiny waistline. And just because I'm wearing a bold color like peach doesn't mean I can't add some pattern to my outfit. While a floral print can give you a sweet, girly look, bold stripes have a more modern feel. #fashionforward Of course if you want a little more drama, try something with an animal print, which is exactly what I did with my handbag. Threw that leading lady in there just to add some drah mah. #wildchild Hey, but of course if you want to keep the look tame less is more.
Enjoy your week and see you lovely folks in my next post! x
