OOTD: Color Blocking


My hair is getting so long, guys. I was thinking of doing a lob, where it’s short in the back and long in the front. But I’m getting way off topic so let’s get into the outfit!

The whole outfit revolves around the main piece, which is the lovely red top that almost looks like a halter but ends up being a racer back tank with thick braided material. The looseness of the top is balanced out by the fitted light gray shorts. What slightly separates the colorblocking is the huge attached belt that I tied into a pretty little bow.

Because I knew I would be dancing a lot, I wore flat shoes. No one has time for blisters from high heels! My white sandals were extremely comfortable. My accessories included my maroon/purple/brown bag and big lightweight dangling gold earrings.

I wore my hair straight and parted it to the far right. I had to use a straightener because my part is used to being more towards the middle. My makeup is the same makeup I did for a brown smokey eye. I am perfecting this method so I can move on to other colors besides the safe brown that I know how to do.

What is your favorite outfit to dance in?

  1. LOVE this look. I like how loose and flowey everything is while still being super chic. Great color choices too – red looks beautiful on you and I love the bow on the shorts! Also – YOUR HAIR! I love it long!

    • Thank you so much Laurel! I need more reds in my life. I like my hair long too! I’m torn between cutting it and leaving it long. I want to donate my hair though so it’s not bad if I cut it. Plus my hair grows fast so that’s my reasoning behind cutting it. Idk!

      • I know what you mean!!!!! I have long hair and have toyed with the idea of chopping it off, but then always rethink the decision because any time I have had short hair in the past I got sick of it real quick! I recently took about 5 inches off and its still long so I think that got the need to change my hair out of my system for a while! 🙂


      • Long hair is so awesome. But I thought about it a lot these past couple months (see how long I’m taking!) and figured my hair grows fast. I mean, that’s why it’s so long in the first place! Short hair is hard to maintain as well.. Ugh! lol

      • SOOOOO so so so so true. You are preaching to the choir! Nothing worse than short hair in the summer! Also, I hear you on the scarf situation! Also, if I carry a shoulder bag I always manage to get my hair tangled in the handle hahahaha. The struggle is real.

    • I know. It’s slowly transitioning into Fall weather. I’m trying not to wear denim shorts, but flowy shorts I am still wearing if weather permits… But with fall colors!

      You think so about the lob? I keep going back and forth about it because I LOVE long hair. LOVE. but when I chop it off, to Locks of Love it goes!
