Questioning my wardrobe palette

Yesterday I realized that my wardrobe has a consistent color scheme of red, dark blues and off-white. A gloomy American flag, really.

“I wear the same colors,” I said, examining the few items I had brought to Germany. Beneath my stack of egg white sweaters and buried in my curtains of maroon I realized that I also owned one forest green sweater and this bright blue scarf I recently received from my aunt at my going away party. I tried on this scarf with several outfits, trying to fit it into this monotonous color scheme I had decided on for myself.



My skin tone is supposed to be complemented by jewel tones, but I find myself unable to work with them. I often admire mustard-colored or emerald pieces, but I stay away from them because my skin is also rather olive. I would just look like a Greek salad.

Cardigan: Hollister
Jeans: American Eagle
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: Gift
Ring: Rebecca Minkoff

I kept my outfit neutral, because this scarf should stand alone. Does this work? Is it too bright? It’s so ridiculous how much a scarf can just make me question my wardrobe, and why I only seem to buy and wear certain colors. Do you do that?

Germany is finally getting cold. Hope you’re looking forward to that stack of egg white sweaters I mentioned. Such great content. Follow me now for more egg fun.
