Two Stylish Kays: BDID: Look On The Bright Side

BDID: Look On The Bright Side

Thursday, June 16, 2011

by Keren Charles
Lace Top- Love on A Hanger (Thrifted)/ Yellow Bolero- RYU (from Black Swan Swap)/ Pencil Skirt- Banana Republic (Thrifted)/ Shoes- BCBG/ Watch- Michael Kors/ Bracelet & Earrings- (Thrifted)














When styling this outfit for the Bloggers Do It Better Neon + Neutral Fashion Challenge, I chose to use a pop of bright yellow to intensify my neutral palette. This stark contrast reminded me of the beauty that could be found if we look on the bright side of things. Yes, in life, joy can be found on even the gloomiest of days and during the darkiest nights. Even if you think your circumstances are troubling and you can't seem to find a way out, put on a pair of rose-colored glasses and drink from the glass that is half-full!  Because joy will come in the morning and resemble the vibrant colors of the sun.
