outfit: blue, green, and kinda blue

OOTD 4 26

fashion rules say blue and green should never be seen together, but conceptually i liked the way these two pieces work with each other.  both are made from heavy duty cotton canvas and have nearly identical color values with visible fading from multiple washes over the years.  i felt conflicted about the outfit as a whole though, mainly about the ankle socks being so prominent but i didn’t have time to second guess it and just went out the door.

here i am with the new google pixel 2 phone in the color ‘kinda blue’.  the phone is so pretty.  love the straight edges and minimalist boxy design.  this baby is lightning fast.  the fingerprint reader is like 10x faster than the one on the iphone and the voice activated assistant responds insanely fast too. i’m going to get a clear case for it to preserve its beauty, but if and when i get tired of the ‘kinda blue’ color, i’ll switch to a black or white cover. at least that was my rationale when i chose this funky color.

is it me or is this mirror selfie much more sharp than my usual photos? i think the camera is far superior, but maybe just in comparison to the old iphone.  i’m using the google bluetooth earphones too.  i like the discreet, non-flashy design, and how the buds feel more secure being tethered together with a fabric covered wire. i’ve been able to listen to podcasts while walking around my apartment while my phone is sitting in the other room.  the bluetooth range is really strong and it never cuts out. so far so good.
