Wearing: Cardigan- Loft (similar options with several colors), Skirt- Zara, Shoes- 3.1. Phillip Lim, Sunglasses- Michael Kors (lots of options), Jewelry- Midori Linea

It hasn’t really felt much like May the last couple days, or even weeks, and I wanted to style an option that was still bright, fun, but more weather appropriate. I love a big pop of color, and though there might be such a thing as too much color, I really like the way the deep orange of the cardigan goes with the blush of the flats.

 Sometimes I realize that I might be wearing too much black, and perhaps I should be infusing more color. The color I most gravitate to (besides black of course) is blue. It’s interesting really, because I don’t have any particular affinity to blue, I actually like red more when I’m trying to be bright, but I guess there’s something about blue that almost makes it a neutral. And that’s worth blogging about.

Blue is a great neutral color because it goes with everything. I mean pair it with black, brown, beige, a print, it’ll work. And it won’t look as predictable. For this outfit, I went with different shades of blue and a contrasting polka dot print blouse. I love the powder blue of this skirt, and it’s such an on trend piece. I got it at Zara, and I highly recommend them for affordable trendy pieces. It comes in a couple different colors as well. The cardigan and the boots are a darker shade of blue, and pull the whole look together. Velvet boots are having such a moment right now, and I am so glad that I have these in my shoe wardrobe. They elevate any look to a much more stylish level. I am crushing on this Rebecca Minkoff pair.

I’ve got a lot more outfit ideas in the works; stay tuned!
