I had a week of spring-like outfits laid out in all of my optimistic glory and a mid-week blizzard dashed those hopes. I’ll be honest, I was feeling a little blah by mid-week and in an attempt to not wear all neutrals, decided to pop some color in to my otherwise seemingly tame outfits. Here’s a look at a few of my neutral-centric outfits that I took to the next “level” with a pop of color!
First up, blizzard day:
Sweater, Blouse, Shoes: J.Crew / Pants: Banana Republic / Necklace: Purple Peridot / Watch: Michael Kors / Bracelets (l to r): Groopdealz, J.Crew Factory, Groopdealz, Kate Spade
This polka dot cashmere J.Crew sweater is probably one of my favorite items in my closet. The Blythe blouse in shocking pink is a lot on it’s own but paired under the sweater and adding the Cece flats as well as a bright bangle…a few perfectly placed pops of pink and I was ready to brave the snow! (I wear boots to/from work of course! No bare ankles outdoors!) We were sent home from work due to the blizzard so I only got to wear this for a few hours. I’ll definitely be recreating this one again! It was pretty cold that day so I added my J.Crew Wool tipped blazer – here’s a closet up with the necklace. The necklace really tops the whole outfit off!
Next up…yellow! On the flip side, I really don’t own or wear a lot of yellow but I do have a few neon pieces from last year and I’m glad to see the trend returning this year for a second season. I recently ordered the Banana Republic Carter Flats in Sunshine Yellow and had them laid out to wear with a more spring-like outfit. Well, I woke up Thursday feeling a bit blah so opted for my cozy but fabulous J.Crew Chandelier Sweatshirt, Banana Republic Sloan pants in navy, J.Crew Keeper Chambray Shirt and the flats. Love! And of course, I added a pendant necklace.
