Well, hello, there friend! Happy Thursday!
So, this article is about 15 days overdue but, you know what they say, better late than never! 🙂
If you read Volume 1 of The Colour Study, you know that my goal in this little experiment of mine is to switch up the aesthetic of my Instagram page on a monthly basis, as to fit a certain season, mood and maybe even evoke a certain type of emotion from my followers. The first month, October, I opted to start strong with a bold colour, orange, and if you remember, I mentioned that for the month of November, I wanted to choose a theme and colour that is a little bit softer and more neutral in tone. However, I didn’t compile a nice little overview for you of how it turned out, which is so not fair, or cool, especially if you don’t follow me on Instagram (which you totally should, it’s essentially my life at the moment, I love it SO much! ;))! And so, it is time for a #ColourStudy update (YAY!)! Let’s begin, shall we?? 🙂
As you can (hopefully) see above, the colours I chose for the month of November were a soft brown and gray. At least one of those colours is in all of the photos in this piece, and if you scroll through my Instagram feed to look at all of the photos from November, you’ll see the same holds true. I worked harder last month than I did in October to keep the theme consistent and to make sure that my photos had a similar aesthetic. The goal for my Instagram is always for the photos to flow and vibe when put together, and to therefore create a sense of peace within the feed. I found that with a softer palette, I didn’t have to work as hard at finding things to photograph, that softer browns and grays naturally appeared in a lot of the things I like or want to photograph, which was great. It didn’t turn out exactly how I imagined, but it turned out okay in my books.
The same cannot be said for this month‘s colour, red, but I am slowly getting the hang of this month’s theme, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of using splashes of red in my photos in different ways than just the typical, festive styles. I have to say, though this #ColourStudy of mine is challenging in many ways, it’s been very enjoyable and I’m hoping that you get as much pleasure viewing my themed photos as I do creating and styling them! 🙂 Want to follow along on the journey?!

This won’t be the last time you hear from me this month, I promise, but I feel compelled to say this, anyways: As always, I wish you a fantastic, happy, healthy and safe month, and seeing as this time of year is filled with holiday-related festive cheer for many of us, Happy Holidays! ♥♥♥
Until next month’s roundup…sayonara, friends!
Lots of love,
