Neutralized



If you look back through my recent outfit posts, it isn't hard to see that I whole-heartedly embrace colors of every kind - whether they be bold primary shades, neon hues or pale pastels.  But every now and then, it's nice to tone things down a bit with a simple palette of neutrals - just tiny pops of color on the lips and nails + my new favorite pieces of jewelry.  Be sure to check out JewelIQ if you haven't yet - they have amazing & affordable pieces all under $25, plus free shipping!




What I'm wearing:
LOFT top (here), Vintage skirt (similar here or here), Target belt, Dolce Vita sandals (here), c/o JewelIQ necklace & bracelets (here), Rafē New York clutch (via eBay), Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Rendezvous, Nails: Essie Lollipop

Oh man, did you see the cardigan at LOFT that goes with that shell? I loved it, but I'm semi-allergic to wool so it made me itchy. Sadness. Anyway, I love the thick stripes; they're a little bit different than the usual!

The length of the skirt is great and I am always for putting leopard prints with almost anything.
