Try-it-out Tuesday: bright and floral

      If I could have a color as an alter ego, it would be this shade of hot pink.
    In real life, I'm more of a navy blue or deep purple: quiet, reserved, preferring the background to the spotlight. Hot pink, on the other hand, is vivacious and comfortable being the center of attention. Combining it with the splashy floral print just makes me happy.

    I'm writing this on Monday afternoon, right after finishing and printing my term papers for Monday evening's digital librarianship class. My brain feels like mush. This is seriously the hardest semester I've had in the program. I was working down to the wire on Saturday morning to finish my portfolio, then I started working on Monday's assignment when I got home from class. While I look rather happy and perky in the above photo (taken last week, before the madness started), in reality I spent the whole weekend furiously working on my computer while wearing jeans and my comfiest black tee. My study aids included a bag of sour cream potato chips and a lot of cookies and chocolate. Two projects down, one more to go! :D
     But back to the clothes ... What color is your alter ego? I'd love to hear! :)

  1. Ick, good luck with finishing up this semester!
    I love it when you wear bright colors like this, they always look amazing on you! You can really pull of these saturated colors, the sweater looks so pretty against your hair. (Heh, I love that your color has an alter ego! I'd probably be some sort of olive green shade.)

  2. Thanks, Katie! I used to stay away from bright colors before, but obviously I'm making up for lost time. :)

  4. Good luck with all your school work.
    Brights and black and white always look sharp together :)

  6. I don't think my alter ego is so much a color as sparkle...or animal print. *lol* I've just never been one for all the glitz and bling or the zebra and leopard print. Growing up, I was very much into soft pastels (I wanted to be a Victorian lady), and now I tend to stick to jewel tones because I think they look best with my skin tone and hair color. But lately, I've been wanting some leopard flats and gold sequined top. I'm just not sure I can work it!

  7. My alter ego would totally have to be yellow. Bright, garish, obtrusive. Ha!

  8. Sara - yes, yellow can be very in-your-face! :)

  9. Leopard flats sound like fun - and think those flats and the gold sequined top would mix well with your jewel-toned items. :)
