Pink and Green; The Surprisingly Watermelon Chic

Pink and Green; Color of Watermelon, or Chic?
What They Did (Colorloud)

What I did

 Aloha fashionistas! Random, but this week I've been really craving watermelon.  At the school where I'm attending we always have pineapple, sometimes papaya, but very rarely do we ever get watermelon.  So, I decided if I couldn't eat it, I'd do a post from these wonderful colors. Pink and green can often be seen as too girly and can be easily overdone. Yet, I have found that sometimes these colors can overcome and be classified as even chic. I decided to also give two different inspirations, one very vibrant and also a pastel version. My sweater is from the lovely Forever21, my floral pants are from the fabulous Wet Seal, my purse came from Marshalls, and my shoes are from a Salvation Army in PA.

Thanks and Mahalo for reading, good luck in your own colorful endeavors!
So go ahead and paint the streets with pink and green!

How to be Colorloud

After I started this blog, I realized that I had not introduced myself and what this blog is about. My name is Sienna <3. As you can guess, I'm in love with color. I wasn't always this way, growing up I had probably almost zero sense in fashion. My daily outfit was a comfortable cotton shirt and gym shorts. I was a jock, and awkward about my height (5'9). Gucci and Prada, were lost words on me.
Then magically, it happened.
I went to NYC.
My mother, took me around town. For the first time I met Soho, Manhattan, and Greenwich Village. I saw fashion that I never knew existed. It was summer, so most everyone was wearing their brightest summer colors. People seemed like walking modern art. I felt like was in a Monet painting, only I couldn't look fast enough to catch everyone around me.
It was then that I decided that I loved color.
Since that point in time,  I've gradually incorporated colors into my wardrobe. At first I was a little bit embarrassed and intimidated. People knew me as a tomboy who only wore gym shorts. However, with time, color has taken over my wardrobe. Its now to the point where black, grey, and brown have become the minority in my closet.
I started this blog for myself, but its really for anyone who appreciates color. From those who already flaunt their flamenco pink outfits, to those who don't wear much color, but would like possible ideas. Basically this blog is a tool for you and me to have inspiration of color fashion.
My dream is that someday all streets will be filled with color.
So go ahead and paint the streets with fashion! 
Make a statement and be Colorloud!

Also, I'm constantly looking for more sources. If you have photos you'd like to contribute of either yourself others, let me know. I'll consider them for future posts and will add a link and reference to your blog! <3

Good luck with your fashion adventures!

The Primary Colors in Fashion

~Be Colorloud~

I really love colorful shoes, you can be wearing a black or grey outfit and the shoes add such a playful flavor.

Outfit Ideas
I have always loved wearing colorful clothes and my favorite combination is red, yellow and blue. This color combination always makes me happy and make me nostalgic for elementary school, coloring books, and crayons. I recently bought this sweater on Etsy from AARDVARKMARKET and I absolutely love it! My shoes are nike and I got them in Portland. I got my skirt from Forever21 and my shirt comes from the lovely Macy's. Earrings and bow are from Salvation Army in Pennsylvania.  Good luck with your color blocking endeavors!

Be brave, with red and yellow!

                                      ______________The Gryffindors___________

I've always had a great love for Harry Potter and so like any good fan, I try and incorporate the lovely deep red and yellow in my daily fashion. I've found over time that this color duo is hard for the reason that red and yellow in their purest forms can easily shock people as being the fashion form incarnation of ketchup and mustard. However, a deep and rich red such as burgundy and a yellow color close to gold will show off the beauty that this color combination can be!

The Gryffindor motto is "Their daring, nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart". 

Be brave with your red and yellow!
