When the leaves fall

I have a little condition I like to call matchy-matchy.
I tend to colour co-ordinate my outfits with my shoes and accessories most of the time.

In fact, I've became quite infamous among my friends because of it. I think I inherited this condition from my mom. When my sister and I were younger, mom would dress us up in matching colours from head to toe. And when we got older and learned to dress ourselves, her advice was always for our outfits to be matching in colour. Though I try not to be too matchy-matchy nowadays, sometimes (okay, most of the time) I will relapse into this condition. Well, that's what sort of happened yesterday.
I was quite green from head to toe
Do you tend to dress up in matching colours like me?

Thank you for all your sweet comments on my post below. I feel so much better reading them. The one thing I'm certain of is that these feelings never last and they will definitely pass.
I love reading how you guys have different ways of cheering up!

One of the ways I cheer myself up is by watching the koi fishes in my little pond.
It really has a very calming and soothing effect!
I feel so much better already!
Only 11 days to Christmas you guys:)

I'm a matchy-matchy girl myself Sher. Maybe this is because I'm so obsessive-compulsive.

I love your aqua-green outfit.

Kallie said...

I don't have matchy tendencies, in fact I'm quite the opposite. However, you look great in aqua!!

beingdena said...

hello lovely

glad you are feeling better. Love the photos.... that necklace is beautiful. x

Imogen said...

Your pictures are outstanding and you are very beautiful.

Indy said...

Ooo...you loook FANtastic! I tend to shy away from machty matchyness, but you make it look so fab that I might have to try sometime!

daisychain said...

I'm so in love with that ring of yours.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I tend to be the same way too sometimes. It's kind of fun to match things, like your purse to your skirt and whatnot. Kind of makes it a challenge. :)

Your outfit is so beautiful. I love that skirt and your necklace is gorgeous!

There are days when I like to dress up with colors that go with each other, most of the time when I'm wearing anything RED that even my bag is red. Haha. But I always make sure that I don't overdo it.

That first photograph is amazing!
I don't think it's too matchy-matchy, it's cute.

Jacqueline said...

Awww, I love koi fish! I want some. So soothing and calming to watch them all day long. I adore the all green look on you. Green is one of my favorite colors. xoxo

I love that ring, it's gorgeous! I can't never match myself head to toe in just one colour, it's kind hard for me. I think you did a nice job here!

mahryska said...

yep, i do match up sometimes!!! ehehehe =D and its not as easy as it seems...

Dream Sequins said...

I tend to go matchy matchy when I'm wearing dark colors like black or grey-- which is fairly often ;) Love that shade of green on you!

kpeach said...

I think matchy is making a comeback! xo

issa said...

great look.. love the ring!

Melissa~ said...

GOD! It happens the same with me. My mom teached me that, and know is very diffciult for me, for example, don't match my bag with my shoes. She told me that all the time, and is like in my DNA now xD
I love your skirt. And you have koy fish? so gorgeous!

thanks for your comments!
Kisses!

un petit lapin said...

Honestly, I don't like matchy matchy... I think it's because my mum tries to do it. HOWEVER, I think this outfit looks great and doesn't look like you tried too hard :) It must be warm where you live!

♪♫♪ Stina said...

Lovely post! & you look so sweet (as always). Adore the first photograph!

Wish you a wonderful week, dear.
Xo, Stina.

Tights Lover said...

I don't tend to match colors, but seeing how you did here, maybe I should try. You look great! I love your nails too!

Isabelle said...

Such a nice ring... <3

Little Lovables said...

very cute! I love that ring, and I have that same cuff bracelet ;)

love, S said...

Hai Sher! *flails arms and smiles widely* Firstly, I am a matchy-matchy girl as well and must match earrings with shoes, belt, nails or the like... I like matching, I think I've been doing more matching recently. Must be the weather?

Oh I let out a *giggle-snort* when you called yourself a noob with a DSLR! I have been happy with my p&s but since I need a new one, the upgrade will be fun to slide into more professional photography y'know? Maybe when I'm not swallowed in student debt and penniless in a few years I can have a shiny DSLR like you!!

Thanks for readin' my song-poem (song/poem?) I havn't written anything properly for a while but stay tuned after Christmas especially! I find writing easier when I've got something to mope about - so more writing next year probably... Wow long comment! <3 you lots!

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Bug said...

Love it! I also have that condition, and I try really hard to not do it all the time. I always tend to have something though that matches at least once in the outfit.

Valencia Lia said...

I tend to be matchy matchy at times too,so don't worry Sher! Its perfectly normal :) heeeee

Gorgeous teal blue green color on you! I really love the skirt and those heels.
Love love the accessories you wore,I'm so jealous of your ring. ahahaha

Ohhh one more thing that makes me relax,is watching the rain.

Awww,thanks so much! Yeahhh,I'm rather clumsy have to admit. But I'm all better now,bruised swollen elbow and my back hurts a little. But its fine.

I love love vintage clothing soooo much,and I was thinking of really going back into buying more vintage stuff.
Would be wearing those new heels out soon. That's so sad,no Mos burger at your side? But we don't have Baskin Robbins which I LOVE<3

big hugssss

mica said...

i tend to colour match too and always very standard colours for me. like black will always go with white or grey. n i seldom wear pastel colours. 99.9% its black. haha... so in fact my wadrobe is also very matchy matchy ;D

i cant believe its just 11 more days to x'mas!!!!!

Ela said...

You're like a matching paradise!
And I love your necklace!
I do matchy-matchy at times but mostly not so much, most of the time I just throw on whateve without giving it thought...I should probably work on that :)

Diane said...

Hy! Love your skirt, the print is great. And don't worry about dressing in matching colors, it can be your trade mark ;) I also tend to do that, I think is the classic way of dressing up.

Ohh how I love your ring ! So gorgeous ! And I love this green outfit , how lovely :) I rarely wear anything matchy-matchy , well I think that's just because my clothes are so not many , makes me hard to find anything matchy haha . Have a nice day dear !

I am so matchy matchy like you are, it is really bad. Even down to my under wear! Ha ha. I like your combo of the purple pendant with the water, very pretty. Plus you chose my favorite colors - blues and greens! You are a lovely lady! ;)

MJ said...

I match, but only because 90% of my wardrobe is black or white! I love your little green outfit though :)

trishiekoh said...

Nothing wrong with matchy matchy! I love your gorgeous necklace.

Sahakiel said...

Hehe, I used to do this, but finally I wanted to combine more than two or three colors in my clothes and stopped doing... but sometimes, why not?
Green really fits you!

And I'd think about the tutorial, of course! I'm so shy and maybe not so good about doing that kind of things, bu I'll try!!

Tink in My Closet said...
