let your colors show

let me step into any shop that is currently featuring all the brights and neons and colors of summer/styles and i immediately try to find my happy place, aka the black, grey and neutral section. i don't know what it is but it seems that no matter how hard i try to venture out of this little box, the grey scale pulls me back in. we could blame it on the years of it being pounded into my head at photography school but that's just another excuse. it's not that i don't love color. i do. i do! i often feel like reese witherspoon in pleasantville when she starts to see all the color emerge after seeing everything in black and white. case in point, i happen to love color when it comes in the form of vintage and shoes. but shoes can usually do no wrong with me and 99.9% of the time, neither can vintage. the dress below was purchased in a small little vintage boutique on state street in santa barbara when i was attending the aforementioned photography school. it remains to this day, one of my favorite vintage pieces (though i think i say that about every one that i own...). and the shoes, well, they are just a party on my feet.

and in keeping with theme of the post, let me leave you with one of top two favorite avett songs...
