Color Blocking Around Town OOTD!

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a fantastic week. I think I’m finally out of my motivation slump, which lasted shockingly long. However, I’m back at creating and it’s never felt so good! I have an OOTD for you guys today, and I have to say I love how the photos turned out. Since putting more effort into researching poses/unique angles, I think the quality of my photos have really improved. I’d love to make a post about how I found interesting poses/compositions and how I execute them. Let me know if you’d like to see that! Anyways here’s some of my favorite photos from the shoot and a deeper dive into the look!

Guys…how cool is this sweater?? Very rarely do I buy something this colorful, but it was calling my name! I simply could not ignore it and I’m so glad I tried it on. It comes with a white version like the one I have on, or a black version! I purchased this sweater at Melrose in the O.C. (of course, because half my wardrobe consists of this fab store). I realize this shop is exclusive to Orange County (although you can purchase this same sweater from their website here), but I’ve been seeing a lot of similar color blocked sweaters on Instagram and at various stores. I did a little research for you and found some different versions of this color blocked sweater! Click the links below to find some options!Image.jpg

This is probably one of the bulkiest sweaters I own. It’s very thick, making it great for a rainy day (for my SoCal friends, another downpour is coming this week!) If you live in a cold place, layering a long jacket and scarf with this would be perfect for those crisp mornings. It’s composed of lots of color blocking with blue, peach, red, pink, and green. Such an interesting color combo, but it totally works! It has quite a high neck line and I decided to roll up the sleeves for a little flare, because why not?!

As for jeans, I’ve been OBSESSING over my new high waisted black pair. Shockingly, they’re not distressed at all, which I normally prefer and am most comfortable in. I somehow managed to tuck in the front of this thick sweater into the jeans for a more sophisticated look (I’ve been super into that lately). Of course, I always end up rolling the bottoms of my jeans because your girl is SHORT!

Let’s talk accessories, shall we? For some reason the vibe of this sweater just calls for a hat. I’ve featured this amazing hat in some of my other photos, but it paired perfectly with the colors in the sweater. This sweater and hat is the epitome of a California winter. You might need a little shade from the sun, but the air is cool and there’s always wind from the ocean. You’ll definitely see me sporting this look around town if you’re in the Souther California area!

I hope you guys enjoyed this OOTD! I genuinely love how these photos turned out from the shoot to editing, so let me know how you like them down in the comments. Also tell me what your favorite part of this outfit is! 

Also, I wanted to mention that I made a poll on Instagram asking you guys if you preferred fashion or beauty posts. It was a close run, but you all voted for more fashion posts! I personally love outfit posts, so your wish is my command! I’m always open to new post ideas, so please feel free to let me know what other kinds of content you’d like to see from me. Whether that’s more videos, more posts about Southern California, beauty reviews, best tips (or tutorials) involving art or design, how I edit, etc. I’ll talk to you guys very soon! Have a great rest of your week! xx

    I love your jumper – I have seen so many similar jumpers coming into fashion recently. I would love to see a photo all about posing and being comfortable in front of the camera. In terms of posts I would like to see, how about a capsule wardrobe or one pair of jeans, three ways to style type post? xx
