Color Pop




I recently decided that I need to make a more concerted effort to inject color into my winter wardrobe.  But since most of my bright pieces are in summery fabrics, it has been a little challenging.  Thankfully, the weather was so warm over the weekend that I was able to get away with just a few light layers.  This cheery combination of bright hues works because the small pops of color are balanced out with neutral basics...so it creates just the right amount of interest without being overwhelming.

*My mom is in town visiting & will be staying with us for the next 2 weeks, so I may not respond as quickly as usual to emails or tweets.  But I promise to get back to you as soon as I possibly can - thanks in advance for your understanding!






What I'm wearing:
J. Crew sweater (similar), H&M coat (similar here or here), Forever 21 jeans (similar) & scarf (similar), Madewell belt (similar), ALDO pumps (on sale here), c/o Olivia & Joy bag (here), Tobi ring (here), Nails: OPI A Roll in the Hague, Lips: Revlon Colorburst Coral

I love being able to layer in some summery colors and fabrics to my winter basics - sometimes you really need the bright punchy colors to deal with the winter gloom.

Chic on the Cheap

Kate said...

I have been feeling the same way lately, wearing so much black & gray this past month, that when warmer temperatures finally arrived over the weekend I also took advantage and busted out some color! I have a post coming up this week with a very similar pair of bright pink pumps! Makes you dream of spring a little, eh? Looking fresh & pretty here, girlie! Have fun with your momma!

I love the three different colors you used to pop! I'm usually a one-color-pop kind of gal, but you just persuaded me to give something different a try!

Hello! I'm Kate. said...

I read in a magazine to not be afraid to add color in your winter wardrobe because it helps you remember spring is coming--I wore pink today just because of that!

I love, love your pink shoes & yellow bag! So fun!

Sarah said...

I love this outfit on you, love all the colours. You have inspired me to try and brighten up a bit. I was envious of your pink shoes and recently managed to find some in Next (uk store) so am very pleased!

Kelli Anne said...

I was so inspired by this post that I clicked on the link for a style similar to the green sweater and bought one!! Thanks for the inspiration, I got it at a great price in coral- perfect for spring!!
