It’s a very strange thing – over the past year my favourite colour has slowly been changing, from the fiery red I once loved so much to the calm, crisp blue I seem to be drawn to now. I can’t help but think that this is symbolic, or perhaps tied to my recent realisation that I’d like to settle in London for a while.

What’s your favourite colour? Has it ever changed?

Lovely Photos! You always looks so stylish in your travel photos! I need to learn how to look less homeless when I’m traveling haha.

Ha ha I’m sure that’s not true! I just wear a lot of bright colours, that seems to fool people into thinking I’m put together.

These photos are gorgeous! Where do you get all of your cute flats?

Brenna Holeman September 25, 2014 - 8:56 pm

Thank you so much! I think all of these (other than the Keds) were from Old Navy or Forever 21. The yellow shoes were a random purchase in Chile!

Blue has always been my favourite colour, I also love deep green – the colours of nature 🙂

Brenna Holeman September 26, 2014 - 2:07 pm

You can’t go wrong with nature! Thanks for your comment Katie. 🙂

I love those yellow shoes! I think the photo from Silvia, Colombia is my favorite, such a natural shot!

Brenna Holeman September 26, 2014 - 2:08 pm

Aw, thanks! And yes, I sat with those women for a while and my friend Kerri just took a bunch of candid shots. They were asking about my necklace!

I imagine you snapping away, thousands of photos then going, “ohhh… I have to find some that suit this post!”

I love what you’ve done and appreciate the work that’s gone into it.

Ha ha – I take so many photos when I travel that it’s only later I realise I took many photos of the same thing! Thanks for your comment, I really appreciate it. 🙂

Gotta say – I love your outfit in the third picture!
I just read your post about loving Cusco and it got me even more excited for my trip there in a couple months. What were your favorite places in South America?

Brenna Holeman January 20, 2017 - 12:42 am

Thank you very much! I’m sure you’ll have a great time. I’m a terrible person to ask because I honestly liked every country I visited for different reasons. For what it’s worth, I spent the most time in Colombia and Peru, though wanted more time in Argentina and Brazil! 😀
