Pretty in Pink

Dress: JCrew, Shoes: Banana Republic, Sunnies: House of Harlow, Watch: Charming Charlie’s, Ring: Vintage, Necklace: Tiffany’s & Co.

For a bright sunny day, I decided to throw on a bright outfit of my own. The shirt dress is a classic, but the neon color makes it modern. To make sure that the dress had center stage, I added nude shoes. I would highly recommend getting a pair of neutral colored shoes. They can work with anything- bright outfits such as this, an all neutral outfit, or anything in-between. Then, adding bold accessories such as a chunky, gold watch, a gold, sparkly cocktail ring, and a sweet, silver necklace make the dress pop that much more.

When I went shopping to get this dress it stuck out to me in the store. But I still wasn’t sure if it was for me or not. Even when I tried it on, I was still unsure. Then all of a sudden, I just knew that it would have a new home in my closet. One of my helpful rules when shopping is: If you keep coming back to it again and again, just get it. Go with your gut. You can always return it or send it back. I mean, why not? You only live once!

A little peek at what I was reading…

Pulled Together

{Velvet skirt, H&M tank, Abercrombie & Fitch cream sweater, J. Crew pink cardigan, Victoria’s Secret Pink leggings, Michael Kors boots and double wrap bracelet, Tory Burch sunnies, Fossil watch, vintage silver chains, spoon ring, and silver bracelet, Tiffany’s heart necklace}

Because the temperatures were colder, I winterized my skirt and added an extra cardigan to the mix. I am loving this color of pink this spring! It is such a great tone and matches with almost anything. Hopefully the weather will warm up soon, and wearing tights and leggings will come to an end. Oh spring, where are you?!?

The Day of Love

Happy Valentines Day!! May your day be filled with chocolate, love, and lots of cut-out hearts. Who doesn’t love handmade valentine’s cards?

{This is my favorite Valentine’s Day outfit of the year- the pink and the orange just work together. It comes from one of my greatest sources of inspiration- Cupcakes and Cashmere.}
