I’ve been a really rubbish blogger again this month. I don’t even have a bunch of good excuses for you – just one: I GOT INTO THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON!!!! I start in January and am very, very excited. It doesn’t quite feel yet, but I imagine it will as soon as the first tuition check is sent.
Aside from celebrating the good news, holidays and family obligations have also been distracting me, but that’s never not the case. So really, I just blew it this month. My apologies.
In any case, I am really into the black cherry trend right now. You might call the color oxblood, burgundy, maroon, whatever. I prefer black cherry, though, because it reminds me of food and not the blood of a beast of burden. But that’s just me.
I have long loved this shade of red. I really like the look of it on short nails and as a lipstick, the latter of which I think I’m too pale to pull off (actually, I’m just too lazy for lipstick. Plus I tend to eat it off. Yum!). It looks good on everyone and goes with everything. One of my favorite sweaters is a black cherry off-the-shoulder open-knit sweater. I like to wear it with skinny jeans and booties. I look awesome in it, in large part due to the color.
Cobalt was a great big trend this spring, and I gotta say: I way prefer it to that season’s usual neons and pastels. Lucky for like-minded cobalt fans, the trend is continuing into the fall. If I’m being really honest, though, what really drew me to cobalt initially was one of M’s figurines of Sonic the Hedgehog. Go figure.
Cobalt is great because it goes with everything. It looks wonderful with neutrals, but is particularly striking with other bold colors such as fuschia and orange.
