color palettes and ‘thropologie

In this post, I’m going to assume you know about the following things, at least in a cursory sort of way: Pinterest and Anthropologie. No need to explain the enigmatic allure of either right? Good.

One thing that I’ve latched on to lately on Pinterest is color palettes. They’re aesthetically pleasing, and helpful for the color-challenged to pick out winning combinations for decorating, fashion, etc. One of the boards I follow is this one: it’s got bold and muted colors, nothing too crazy, and it’s right up my alley.

I decided to use this palette as a jumping off point for yesterday’s outfit. Not exactly the same colors, but the purple/beige element was there…what do you think?

Sidenote: Remember how I said I wanted to take better pictures? Obviously that’s going really terribly…I think I need a new camera. And I need to make sure I take more than one picture where I don’t look bowlegged so I have some choices. Sorry it looks like my elbow blends into my door.

Also, I have a major dilemma (no, it’s not serious, it’s fashion related). The world decided to act in my favor and open an Anthropologie right on the corner near my job. Seriously, this is only the second one in Manhattan.  It opens tomorrow, and I’m hoping to score some good opening-day deals. This is not good for my wallet, guys! I only have $20 left in my budget for February (darn you, pink blazer!). For $20 I can get an apron. Or a bowl. I refuse to raise my budget for the month but I am afraid my resistance will fail me when I’m actually in the store and not online-window-shopping.
