much of what we wear or want to wear are based on feelings and how they make us feel. when we look at ourselves in the mirror while trying on dresses or what not, buying that piece is based on how we feel in it. if we feel good in it, then we look good in it. if we don't feel good in it, then we think that we don't look good in it. it's our perception. and that's ok because we have to feel good in what we wear. and then there's the perception of others about what we're wearing, which could be very different from ours...but that's another topic for later, because what really matters is our own perception. right? or is it?

for me, color is a huge factor in determining whether i like something or not. for example, i love the color red so our front door is red. for me, it's such an attractive color that it enlivens me to go inside. it's an inviting first impression of our house...but i digress. as for my outfit. mint is still my favorite color this season and love the soft ruffly texture of this top! it's simple, refreshing, calming... AND it looks good on my skin tone! a big plus! it's like white, but in color. what's your go-to color this season?

have a wonderful wednesday! thanks for reading! xxx


p.s. i had to include the outtakes because let's face it. sometimes they're just more fun! ;)

  9. Love the top! So soft and feminine.
    And I totally agree that what we wear is all about how we feel. For me, it's usually a comfort/"What style am I going for?" type of thing :)
