As much as I try to incorporate color into my wardrobe, I often end up purchasing pieces in neutrals because they're "safe". I convince myself that I'll get much more wear out of pieces that are similar in color (which is very true), but in the end I always feel like my wardrobe looks so, well, blah. In my quest to inject color into my life, I picked up this blazer from Zara over the summer during their semi-annual sale since I'd had my eye on it for so long. I usually refrain from purchasing pieces that I'm unsure of whether or not they'd fit into my wardrobe, but since this blazer kept making its way into my thoughts for a couple of months, I justified that it had won a place in my closet.
Since it's purchase, I've actually only worn it a surprisingly total of two times. Yes two. Does it still deserve that pedestal spot in my closet? It's becoming harder and harder for me to say yes now. Which pushes me farther into the direction of "let's just stick to neutrals since you can always wear them with anything". And then I fall back into that cycle of only wearing neutrals. One of my NYE resolutions this year is to keep taking this blazer out and to wear it at least once a month. Hopefully I can slowly reintroduce color back into my life and become inspired by the variety of colors that the rainbow has to offer!
