Origami Me often scares conservative girls. It’s too pink, it’s too bright, attracts too much attention…
For the most part, I don’t care if people look, as long as I’m ready, that is. :)
I do agree, though, that there are days when I feel like not being too in-your-face. Yes, it’s possible with these fuschia babies!
The way to keep it subdued is to offset the pink with the accent colors of the pattern- there’s a deep blue, white, yellow, lavender and dark purple. Of course, gray, black and white also work wonders.
I created two outfits for this boot to show you how – one that’s dressier and the other one more appropriate for everyday.
The first outfit is simple, streamlined and classy. A gray sleeveless dress that’s date-appropriate with zipper accents for extra pizzaz. I accessorized it with the wax-paper-white Sugarsweet my+brolly umbrella in this photo.
Another easy-to-wear Origami Me outfit? How about a floral top and white shorts? It will make you forget that it’s not summer anymore. I’d use this outfit to run errands (bank, supermarket, etc) on a gloomy rainy day. An easy way to pick an outfit for Origami Me is getting something with pink as an accent color — thus my breezy floral shirt!
Oh, and why for heaven’s sake, should you wear rainboots to the grocery store?!?
Celebrate the Rain!
