I find myself stopping to appreciate nature the most in Autumn when nature really shows off its artistic skills. Even a basic suburban street transforms into the perfect street style photo opp with the symmetrically lined trees in shades of yellow, fuchsia, and aubergine. I took Adam for some ice cream after school one day, and luckily had my camera and tripod in my car (blogger’s can never be too prepared!) So we took a few shots via self-timer, and I love how they turned out.
My outfit color way coordinates with my surroundings, which is completely coincidental. Many people have trouble mixing and matching bold colors, or color in general, wondering if red goes with blue, etc. I found a great summary here explaining how the color wheel works, which colors work best together to really create an eye pleasing look. In general though, if you look at the color wheel, if a color is opposite from another color, it will be complimentary and really make the other color ‘pop’. If one color is close to the other, it is called analogous, and it will work well but both colors will blend together, neither one ‘standing out’ per se.
I use these color theory principles for home decor and fashion, the only difference in applying it is really your personal preference. Once you get started playing with it, its actually pretty fun – a little weekend homework from me to you perhaps?
