These past few seasons we've been trying to dress more colorfully. It started out for practical reasons. First, we were shooting a video with Jeremy, and he told us to wear bold colors. We realized our closets were filled with mostly black, white, and denim. So we made it a goal to collect a few more colorful outfits.
Next, I had a mega girl crush phase for both Mindy Kaling and Solange Knowles. They're both so pro at dressing colorfully, and they inspired me to try to be more courageous with color choices.
And lastly, we rediscovered that we really love color, and we're relearning what colors work with our individual skin tone and hair color. It's fun! There are endless ways to mix and match our colorful pieces. Most not nearly as crazy as these outfits, but still fun.
I'm glad we're back into colorful outfits. Not that I don't still love my black and white and denim staples, cause I do. But it's nice to feel brave with color and enjoy fashion as more of a hobby again. God knows we love hobbies.
Sarah had the idea to try shooting with giant bubbles. It was the most fun shoot of our year. One to be beat! I mean, it's not everyday that we get to blow giant bubbles.
