Black velvet, if you please

FRENCH CONNECTION jacket, H&M TREND dress, H&M bag, ZARA boots, SPITFIRE sunglasses

It seems I'm having an issue with this whole 'you can wear more than one color in an outfit, Camilla' hint family and friends have been throwing my way a lot lately. I guess it could have something to do with the fact that I shoot a lot of my outfits for the blog, so I like to make sure that things will translate well on camera and sometimes color clashing can just turn out a bit dodgy. You'll leave the house thinking you've finally mastered mixing pink and blue (hallelujah, am I right? Am I?) and said photos will snort in derision, leaving you..well, postless? Whether or not that's a word is irrelevant, you get the point. It could be the above, or it could just be that sometimes I wake up at 7:30 and who has time to match colors that early?

  4. I love all the black! I have a terrible habit of throwing on as many colours as I can see, but this is definitely the way to go.. and there's something about all black in summer that just looks super cool..

      ok, i just said that you have the same ass-kissers on your top 5. i mean, there is ALWAYS the same people adoring you no matter what you say or wear, then there are others who ask questions or comment that they like what you wear and so but no this kind of harassment these others do. you can wear socks with sandals and they will clap their hands. watch out! those are truly stalkers and no life people hahaha.

    3. Well, I'm not entirely sure that's fair on their part. I'm sure they're not 'ass kissers' or anything and I don't know whom you're talking about, though I do appreciate it when readers really engage with a post. I feel like most of the people who comment do that anyway, but thank you for your concern anon :)
