We all know what its like to get stuck in a rut when it comes to styling our wardrobe.  It's so easy to pick out your neutral shades like Black, Grey, White and Tan.  They all go together.. and it's easy right?  I will be the first to admit... Neutrals are my best friend!!  But today I am going to teach you a fun little tip that I have not only used for styling outfits, but also for interior decorating!

We all know that feeling when you go to the mall... or are surfing the net and you see a picture, or a pillow, or a cell phone case that you LOVE.  You love the print, pattern and color so much!  I know the feeling well. This is why websites like Pinterest and Tumblr were created.  People are visual! Now you can take all those silly pins and use them in a creative and fun way!  Take that picture or pillow or whatever it is you have found and use those colors to piece together an outfit.  There is a reason why the designer or photographer used those colors to create it!  Now you can take that and use it as inspiration for your look!  As you can see in the photos above, I found a cell phone case, a print and a photograph that I loved!!  The colors made me feel happy and I used that to create these awesome fashion looks!

I used to do this a lot when decorating my home too.  Usually I would find a pillow or curtain that I loved and used that as a base color scheme for the whole room!  It's an easy, fool proof way to pin point what you love without that wishy-washy feel that sometimes happens when putting together a look!

I hope this helped!  Let me know if you would like to see a video around this concept!
