Every Neutral in the Book

Look at me! I’m posting! What an accomplishment! I’m not sure what it is lately, but I have been feeling pretty uninspired, which explains the lack of posting. I’ve also been super busy, which doesn’t help. But, I’m determined to get back on the wagon. Blogging or bust!

I wore this outfit last week for First Friday Art Walk, Portland’s open gallery night. As we were walking down the street I noticed that Ross and I were studies in vivid color. That’s a lie. He was wearing brown and black and I was wearing every neutral in the blah rainbow. The closest thing to a color was my dark green jacket, but even that is leaning toward the neutral category.  I believe I even stated “Man, I love camel!” that night. Who says that? Me apparently.

Gray skirt: American Apparel
Camel sweater: Nordstrom Rack
Green leather jacket: L.L.Bean Signature
Gold scarf: Marden’s
Oxfords: Jeffrey Campbell (via Gilt)

Do you ever look at yourself and think you look like a member of religious cult that shuns color? Perhaps a monk or Rachel Zoe? The more I get into fall and winter mode the more difficult it is for me to wear color, but it is something I work on.

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
