feeling stuck in a black & white world…

i’m not quite sure when it happened…perhaps it was when i started working crazy hours…or maybe it was the realization that i had in fact…gained some weight back…have you ever had that feeling?  black just seemed easy…or perhaps life got in the way…whatever the reason…i noticed it when i got hooked on instagram

as a wardrobe & image consultant…and being an avid lover of color…i mean…it just makes you happy right? so why wouldn’t you incorporate color into your wardrobe? I was the one…back in my corporate america days…who wore color like nobody’s business…i rebelled against the navy blue, grey or black suits…mine were bright pink, neon green (can you tell it was in the 80’s?), purple…basically any color but the norm…it was me…it was my style…

after corporate america…i lost the suits…but color still reigned in my world…it was me…it was my style…the wardrobe changed…but my love of color…stayed…

so now present day…i’ve caught on to the instagram bug (yes, i know…i’m late to the party) – but i realized…that when i got out of my shyness…and actually started posting pics of myself…everything was in black and white…and i wondered…where did all my color go?

side note: i’d love to have you follow my instagram account…but i digress…

while i obviously still have traces of color…as in my oh so fun neon pink handbag…everything else is black & white…

although my mixing of patterns style remains…even in subtle ways…did you notice the stripes & polka dots? the black & white somehow seemed to take over my wardrobe…and i know…more than anyone…that these are really not my best colors…

so what is a girl to do? especially a girl who is a wardrobe & image consultant? i need to get out of my little style rut…that is what a girl needs to do…

so i am laughing off this style rut…while yes, i will still wear black & white…i mean…it is such a classic wardrobe staple…i am in search of all that lost color…so stay tuned…color will be back in my world shortly…

how about you? have you reached a style rut of some sort? do share in the comments…we are here to help each other through our style woes…everyone has them…even wardrobe consultants…
