magenta + purple

top: Forever 21, thrifted // pants: Nordstrom Rack, clearance // shoes: Target, clearance [old, can you tell?] // bracelet: Groopdealz [this site will make me bankrupt from buying jewelry]

i'm pretty sure this combination probably doesn't go. 
i think i'm breaking some kind of color blocking/monochromatic rules or something... 
i don't get those rules or know how to follow them at all. 

so whatever, i wear this and i wear it often. 
easiest and most colorful outfit so why not just wear it right?? 

that's one thing i want Elijah to remember me by, 
that his mom was colorful, confident, & full of life.  
not sad and wilty, afraid to let my true self show. 

nope. 
every day is a conscious effort. 
even just the small effort of wearing bright, magenta pants. 
but i try to make the effort nonetheless.

i mean, aren't they more fun than regular pants anyways?

Love the pants! Love the whole look, actually :) And I have a pair of old teal flats from Target, too...they are basically falling apart, but they're my favorite!
