I hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far! As of right now, South Florida’s weather is wet and windy due to Tropical Storm Colin. #Ugh – Usually it’s bright and sunny around this time of year. I wish it were like that today…

On the “bright” side (ha), rainy days are the perfect days to stay inside and catch up on work. Hence today’s look! This outfit was shot a couple days ago on a dock along the Intracoastal in West Palm Beach. To be honest, I didn’t put much thought into it. I was crunched for time. So, I threw on my favorite off-the-shoulder top with a pair of shorts, grabbed a hat and an old beach tote that was sitting near my bed. I ran to the mirror to check my outfit and thought, “something is missing?” So, I quickly grabbed one of my old scarves, cut it in half (I do this from time to time), tied it around my neck and dashed out to shoot with Chelsae Anne. And voilà! One of my favorite outfits…

My friends always ask, “How do you put together outfits so quickly?” Of which, I answer, “It’s simple. I use a color wheel.” The color wheel is one of my biggest secrets. It’s not complicated! You just look at a color and pick the one directly across from it or the color that’s next to it to make an outfit. You can also keep it in the family and pair neutrals with neutrals (as pictured), pastels with pastels, earth tones with earth tones, etc. etc.

The same applies to your wardrobe. Create a strong foundation with basic colors (i.e. whites, blacks, creams, etc.). Figure out what 3 to 4 colors look best with your hair color and skin tone and build the rest of your wardrobe from there. Doing so, will create a cohesive wardrobe and make getting ready in the morning super easy.

  • So glad I came across your blog!

    I have a question about shein.com… I’ve read so many mixed reviews. How many items have you ordered from the site? Have you been happy with your purchases?

    Thank you so much for your help!

    • Hi! Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy following 🙂 I’ve heard the same thing. Fortunately, I’ve never had any issues. I use them for my smaller purchases – pieces I don’t plan to hold onto for long like trendy tops, beach coverups, trendy skirts, etc. I suggest ordering 1 or 2 items first! Xo
