Sustainable outfit of the week (3-2015): Casual blue and curious yellow

Posted by Amanda Villaruel | |
Blue and yellow are some of the key colors this upcoming spring and summer! I love these two colors together and decided to put together an outfit for you, which is a mix of fairtrade, second-hand and eco-friendly. It can't go wrong with a pair of timeless jeans and some unique accessories! I get this 'the-girl-next-door' feeling when I see this outfit.

Firstly, here are some of the key colors of spring and summer 2015:

Different shades of blue are in season, and did you know that by wearing something blue, this will psychologically have a calming effect on you? Well, the color is at least associated with trust and sincerity.

And lastly, the color yellow is unsurprisingly associated with happiness, intellect and energy. Hmm, sounds promising! :-)
