From the Blue Door: Life of Color

                                     Satchel (Nordstrom Rack), Sweater (H&M), Pants (Jcp), Shoes (Target)

Life. Is. CRAZY. Nothing like stating the obvious, right? Sooo Christmas happened, along with New Years, snow, and friends home from college. On top of everything else, I'm also preparing to present my portfolio at school.... brb, dying. So in homage to my soon to be submitted "Color Blast" portfolio, greetings from the blue door.

Not only is this my favorite (secret) place to shoot, it complemented this particular outfit. The legging pant has been a savior of mine recently. Its soft, its stretchy, and with pockets and a zipper, it is my way of justifying the forbidden "leggings are not pants" struggle. And not that I am in need of the extra height the racing stripe alludes, the look definitely added an extra shimmy strut sashay. This sweater was a steal for $20 at H&M, and actually fits thanks to the front silky panel. I was immediately drawn to this look of faux hand painted fabric. Consider this outfit, a new way to do "all black". I am a self proclaimed purse collector, and lately I have been on a major satchel kick. This bright red-orange was unlike any color I have ever seen outside of a Crayola box, and was a lovely self picked/mom paid for 20th birthday present.

On a beauty note... This bun has become quite infamous among my friends. I can feel the slight eye roll when I where this out with someone, because it has become a fact that someone at some point will comment on it. I've even been followed, in a mall, stopped, and asked to "crouch down" for observation. Needless to say, I have become quite the advocate for the bun donut. $3 from Claire's or H&M, this spongy-like donut rolls onto your ponytail and grips your hair for that smooth look that lasts all day and without bobby pins! I kid you not. I've tried it all, and this works.

Now go, get your bun donut on. And live a life of color.

XO, Madison
