Tonal Dressing

06 October 2011











I am such a fan of tonal dressing. Whether it be an electric blue paired with robins egg,
or red with pink, I just think it is such a fun way to play around with my closet. It's a different
way to color block and there are endless fun possibilities to make it work. Pair a top with a dress and it is turned into a lovely seperates outfit! Find more tunics here at Joe Browns. Anyways, tomorrow Ryan is coming down to visit me here in Texas for the weekend and then we will be
road tripping it back to Fayetteville where he still goes to school/where I went to school.
Will be seeing tons of old friends and I couldn't be more excited! Plus, some time
with my boo is much needed at this point. It's been almost two months! Oh yeah, and
we will be celebrating my birthday on Sunday... 23, yikes!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week.

I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now, and I don't think I've commented before (shame on me!) but I really love your blog and your style, and I am also quite jealous of your gorgeous hair. I had to break my comment silence to say I love this look. The tonal dressing is such a great way to colorblock without going too crazy, and this outfit is so ladlylike and pretty.

I think I've said it before but you always pick my favourite shades! :) I think I should move to Texas! Scotland is so bitterly cold now! :( And it's only going to get much worse! My mama is Australian and I'm sure that's why I crave the sun and warmth soooo much!!! 23, still a youngin' dear! ;) x

I really like this kind of color mixes, they're special but much less shocking than color blocking. Hope you're having a blast with the visit ;)
