Collette Dressed Me & Friend Friday - Color Wars

For one day of 30 for 30, Collette from Statements in Fashion and I decided to dress each other. Here's what she came up with for me:
Shirt - J. Crew, Dress - Old Navy, Tights - Simply Vera, Shoes - Gap, Belt - Limited, Sunglasses - Chanel, Ring - Express, Earrings - Limited
(I don't know why all my pictures are blurry from this day. My camera was being temperamental.)
I would have never thought to put this shirt over the dress and I completely love it. I'm so glad we decided to do this! Great idea and if you're doing 30x30, you should consider it :)

Friend Friday
I recently joined the Fashion Beauty Friend Friday group created by Katy over at Modly Chic.
Every week Katy puts together a set of questions and on Friday if you want to participate, you answer them on your blog and link back up at Modly Chic.

1. What color dominates your closet?
Probably more gray than anything else. Are we counting gray as a color or a neutral? I mean, technically it's a color. Anyway, blue is a close 2nd.

2. If money weren't an issue how would you change the color emphasis
in your closet?
I have a lot of different colors in my closet, so I don't think money not being an issue would change that. 
3. What is your mantra about mixing colors?
Try it with accessories first. Shoes, bag, jewelry - it's more subtle and easier to mix colors that way.
4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits?
I like to do a "pop" of color. A scarf, a necklace - something that stands out and brightens up what I'm wearing.
5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color
into their wardrobe?
My 30x30 partner today is a fabulous example :) You've seen some of Collette's gorgeous outfit posts haven't you? I thought so.

If you want more information or want to join FBFF, there's more info on Modly Chic and you can e-mail Katy to join the group!

I just gave kudos to you on Collette's blog, now I must give her kudos for your great look! I love the red and turquoise. And I share a lot of the same thoughts on color--especially about adding a pop of color! I have a hard time doing all neutrals.
