Neon Mono

I love a good monochromatic combination.  And while my instinct is usually to use neutrals for monochromatic looks, this necklace/sweater combo has convinced me that it works really well with with color (especially neon!) too!!

Hope you are all having a great week so far!  I am in Wyoming on a work trip braving the severe cold.  Kind of a shock to the system after 10 days in Nicaragua and spring-like temps in the SLC!  Brrrrrrrr….

Thanks for stopping by!

Foiled

I love silver. And metallics. And sparkles. In fact, when I was in high school, my girlfriends and I loved the Spice Girls so much that we each had our own Spice Girl name. And I was Sparkle Spice. Go figure. So needless to say, I am loving the sequin and sparkle t-shirt trend this season. Especially when paired back to destroyed jeans and other accessories of a like metallic, for a sparkly, yet monochromatic look…

So I’ve got a question.  What do you all think of my silver Michael Kors bag?  I got it for a steal at Macy’s, but am on the fence as to whether or not it’s a keeper.  Would love to know if you guys think I should love it or leave it.

Sunshine and Lace

Ahhhh, lace.  So pretty, so sweet, so timeless, so romantic.  I have to say that I am awfully glad to see lace making a comeback.  And am especially loving all of the cute lace and crochet shorts, flowy tops, and crops-some bohemian, some more fashion forward, there is a style of lace out there for everyone. 

And with so many options and price points to choose from, I have been on the hunt for a perfect lace top for a while and finally found a beautiful cream lace cropped tank at Macy’s a few weeks ago (post to come).  So I was surprised when I was recently in Forever21 and found another lace tank that was not only longer, but the color of sunshine and about 1/3 of the price.  And I knew instantly that even though it was lace (and yellow), it was a great basic that could work back to skirts, shorts, denim, and even colored denim.

If you haven’t already added a piece of lace to your summer wardrobe, I would highly recommend doing so.  Not only is it on trend right now, but lace is timeless and will most certainly keep making comebacks as the fashion trends cycle over the years.  I also wanted to point out that I did something I don’t normally do in this post-which is opt for a monochromatic look with my shoes instead of a complimentary, but different, pop of color.  While the yellow heel and the turquoise platform are a shade or two darker than my top and jeans, they are in the same color family, and therefore work back to each other.  The white pop on the shoe is also the perfect way to tie it all together.  All in all, I am really pleased with how the look turned out and will definitely be making more monochromatic choices in the future-yet another fun and different way to change things up a bit!
