Ni-Hao! I just returned from China with Mandarin Journeys last night around 11PM EST. I’m not sure how I am sitting up, writing, what day it is, whether or not I’m daydreaming or how on EARTH I am going to function for the rest of the day. But I haven’t had Internet in quite some time and feel like I should get a few posts up today to reconnect with everyone!!
Every Wednesday, I team up with a few friends and do an outfit breakdown for the week. Well, today I will be in my pajamas all day long. Braless. Hair in a bun. No makeup. Know it. It was physically impossible for me to dress up and do a photoshoot. Technically, it’s 11:42PM because China is 12 hours AHEAD. I’m all messed up!!
Instead, I wanted to focus on a fashion TIP. One that I use whenever I am away. Wear bright and bold colors when you hit the road. Stay away from the neutrals whenever possible. Just look at how the colors pop in photos.
China was filled with greens and browns and blues… and there I was wearing a bright orange shirt in the middle of it all. It really stood out in photos. Something to consider when packing for your next trip!
Prints work too but … honestly… nothing could COMPETE with the two girls that I’m standing next to in this shot! Honestly, I was in such a fluster trying to get this photo that I ended up spilling an entire glass of soda on me when I sat down. EEK! My shoe were squeaky for the rest of the day.
One more with the same pink shirt from above (and PS – I will talk about all these moments in a minute) — just look at how it separates from the background. It truly becomes the focal point!
Something to consider when packing for your next vacation.
