Colorblock Monday

Happy Monday Y’all! Hope everyone had a great weekend! This is one of my favorite color combos! I tried it last year with my cobalt jeans and white blazer, so when I thrifted this skirt a few months ago I knew I wanted to give it a try again. #KateBeckinsale Tangerine CobaltThen I saw this Pin of #KateBeckinsale in this Tangerine Top and Blue Pencil Skirt and knew I could recreate it!

My version is brighter than Kate’s, but I think I got the overall vibe. I think I needed the white sunnies, I’ll have to pick up a pair for this summer – I keep seeing them everywhere.

I kept this look simple, by only adding gold hoop earrings and a black enamel & gold bangle. Sometimes less really is more. tangerine cobalt Color Block

WIWW: Black & White with Color Pops!

Happy Wednesday Y’all!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love the Black & White trend this spring! Obviously, I’ve unofficially made this Black & White week around here but I just can’t help it. 🙂

It literally took me 5 minutes to throw this outfit together this morning. Black & White – check, Lace top – check, Color Pops – check. I love when you’re running late, but you can still throw an outfit like this together.

With fickle spring weather here, layers are your friend. This lace top is not only breezy but is also sleeveless, so to make this office friendly tolerable I added a bright blue cardigan and some fun yellow accessories. I love wearing my sandals now too!

What about you guys, has spring sprung in your neck of the woods? I hope so!

WIWW: Cobalt, Black & White

Happy Hump Day all!! Spring is slowly making an appearance and I’m putting myself in a good mood by dressing up a little!

Everyone, who’s anyone, knows that Black & White is huge for Spring this year! I, for one, am loving the trend! I thrifted this cute little blouse a month or so ago. I wore it one other time but hated the styling that day, enter cobalt cardigan to the rescue. I really liked the way this outfit turned out, simple but with a color pop.

The addition of the belt gave the appearance of a peplum and who doesn’t love a good peplum these days?! I was really happy to wear my grandmothers broach too. Hair cut happening Friday…I’m thinking shorter with layers or just more layers…maybe bangs?!?! Any suggestions?

Minty Colbalt Take Two – Grey Edition

Happy Monday Y’all! Hope you all had a great weekend! I’m not 100% yet, but getting a little better each day. We had a hectic weekend with a birthday party, cleaning house and playing outside with the dog, along with some much needed naps!

With all that did get accomplished this weekend, my putting together a few outfits for the week just didn’t happen. Luckily I remembered I put this one together and just hadn’t worn it yet. I thrifted this cobalt skirt on my last thrifting trip for about $1.50 and have been ecstatic to wear it. I paired it with my minty lace tee and grey blazer – both thrifted items too. I have been perusing Pinterest for other ways to wear this cobalt skirt this spring. I really want to find either a great floral blouse or floral blazer or maybe both!

It was warm enough today so that I went with bare legs, please forgive the extreme whiteness. I did get a few compliments though despite my blinding legs!

Fashion Friday: Cobalt & Minty Checks

Happy Friday!! It’s been another busy, long week for me and I’m so glad to see the weekend.

Mint Checks

Gingham shirt, Sweater & Cobalt Jeans – Thrifted, Statement Necklace – Julep, Ankle Boots – old

I had a completely different outfit picked out for today, but somehow this outfit put itself together last night and I couldn’t wait to wear it today! Mint and cobalt have been a big hit the past few of years. I tried the look a couple of times before here on the blog, but I think today’s outfit is my favorite so far. Plus I altered my pants, can you tell they’re no longer a version of weird too short – boot cut! I hated the way they looked and kept telling myself I was going to fix them, well I finally did. Maybe a DIY how-to is in order for this weekend!

Spring is almost here and I’ve been seeing checks and gingham pop up everywhere; on blogs, the runway and on the street. I thrifted this sweater in the fall while looking for something minty, the gingham shirt and cobalt jeans were also thrifted over a year ago.
