Straying From Black

I have to admit... I have a problem. My favorite color is black. Black shoes, black shirts, black skirts, black socks. It just matches so well with everything, it's hard not to love it! So when I saw this piercing blue shirt, you can only imagine the thoughts that were going through my mind. "Do I buy? Do I not buy? Well... it's not black you know... " As I kept debating, I soon came to the understanding that there was just no way that I was going to leave without it. And what's funny is that when I wore this outfit, I got so many compliments not on the outfit as a whole, but on the shirt as its own entity. And on top of that, people weren't saying things about the amazing gold zipper that runs all the way down the back or the fabulous lace design, they instead would stop to tell me that the color of my shirt was amazing. This outfit reminded me about all the times I would get love from others on my bright colored outfits, reminding me that sometimes it's ok to stray away from black.
