I had an 8:30am appointment but of course woke up late this morning (what else is new), and had absolutely no time to actually dress myself. I depressingly slipped on a pair of grey Nike sweatpants, a black Madewell hoodie, navy blue and white, suede Adidas sneakers, and a navy blue baseball cap from the 7th grade. Am I ashamed? Yes. But did I manage to leave the house on time and make it to my appointment? Yes.
When my appointment ended I headed home to change into something a little more human before going to school. As I stood in my closet looking for something to wear, I let out a huge sigh because I knew it was one of those days where you feel like you have "nothing to wear". I must have stared at my clothes for five whole minutes feeling uninspired and uninterested before I came to the conclusion that this sad feeling stemmed from the fact that I have NO COLOR in my life. My wardrobe consists of neutral whites, blacks, grays, navy blues, and the occasional red. Tragic.
Lately I've been Insta stalking Leandra (Medine) Cohen (@leandramcohen), founder of Man Repeller, and I'm full-blown obsessed to say the least. She's a true OG blogger who's style is so amazingly colorful, bold, eccentric, humorous, and cool. Everything she does reflects perfectly on her website, which I now religiously sign onto on a daily basis. Whenever I scroll through her personal Instagram feed or browse MR my mood becomes brighter and I'm instantly inspired by the color, color, COLOR! It's basically the equivalent of being hit in the chest with a paintball gun filled with highly pigmented color, wit, fun, and style.
To fill the colorless void that is my closet and to satisfy my color cravings, I scoured the great internet in attempts to find the most vibrant, pretty, happy-rainbow things I possibly could. My desperate need for rainbow everything is coincidentally perfect timing, as bold, bright, saturated colors are HERE for spring. Also stripes, I'm seeing so many damn stripes everywhere! (But that's another story).
Dressed up or down, rainbow is perfect for any occasion this time of year and will really make you stand out in a crowd (in the BEST way possible). Scroll down to discover my "rainbow wish list" and click the images to shop the individual pieces! Ready, set, RAINBOWWWW!!!!!
