The Most Human Color | #OOTD

Friday, August 26, 2016

Today's look is a mirage of blue shades. I've always loved blue; aside from black (because duh), I'd say it's definitely my favorite shade to wear. So when I found these pale blue shorts (J. Crew!) at Plato's Closet, I knew they were a winner. Paired with a navy boxy top (can we talk about that scalloped edge though because mmmm!) I feel right at home in these colors.

With these photos, I sort of accidentally discovered a new trick that I really love. I was test-shooting for color and focus before I set the timer, and accidentally caught my finger in the frame. The affect was that cool orange lens flare, and I loved it! To recreate the effect while I was modeling, I taped a piece of pink paper to hang just in front of the top of the lens, and it worked! Happy accidents are my favorite.
