How to: Balance Dark and Rich Tones

Hello,

The weather has been so back and forth recently. One day it’s been cold and the next day, it’s hot. This weekend it actually snowed so I took advantage of it by wearing some fall and winter wear. I love having fun with neutral tones. It’s fun to combine colors like grey and black with rich colors like this emerald green hat. Whenever I’m wearing dark and rich tones during the day, I like to balance them with lighter tones.¬†This peach sweater kept me nice and warm, plus it balanced out the darker tones in my outfit. Having this balance creates a look that isn’t too “heavy” or “weighed down”.

Listen to Your Body-Get Some Rest

Hello,

For the past weekends, I’ve been doing several pop-up shops for Queen Styles Boutique. I love doing pop-up shops. Being that I sell clothes online, I like whenever I can meet customers face-to-face. I can see their reactions to the fabrics and interact with them. It’s an amazing feeling. I had the opportunity to do a pop-up shop yesterday and today. I thought about it and chose to only do an event yesterday. I struggled with that decision if I’m being honest with you. I wanted to work but I knew I was tired. I didn’t want to start a new week off drained and tired. I knew I needed to recharge my batteries. So, I decided to listen to that voice. We went to church, picked out our Christmas tree, and watched Hallmark movies all day…I enjoyed every minute of it. And you know what? I feel refreshed, and ready to take on another week. Sometimes, the decision is tough. I think we’ve trained ourselves that if we’re not working or busy, we must be lazy. There’s a happy medium and your body will tell you, just listen.
