Cobalt + Green = Happiness

I am obsessed with color blocking. Green plus any color always works in my mind, so here is bright green, cobalt, and salmon (by way of a bag I ordered from ShoeDazzle, which has the most awesome leopard lining. I’m such a sucker for a great lining.)

I’m so glad that colored denim and color blocking are both so in right now, because I’m having so much fun playing with both trends.

PS, I don’t know if you noticed but I’m really counting on red lipstick and eyeglasses to distract from the fact that my right eye is swollen and red. Major contact lens related inflammation happening there. You don’t know how upset I am to not be able to wear mascara right now. I don’t even feel like myself.

Primary Colors, Three Ways

I’ve been feeling colorful. Mainly because I stumbled upon both red and cobalt jeans in Macy’s for only $20 and couldn’t resist getting them and pairing them with other primary colored items already in my closet.

Left (Nautical Boho): Red Jeans: Macy’s, Top, Camis, and Necklace: Forever 21, Satin Flats: H&M, Bangles: Amrita Singh

Middle (Prim and Proper): Leggings: Old Navy, Blazer: old, Tee and Cami: Forever 21, Lizard Print Flats: H&M, Necklace: Barbara Weinreb

Right (Sophisticated Boho): Cobalt Jeans: Macy’s, Tee: Old Navy, Cami: Forever 21, Wedges: BCBG, Scarf: Francesca’s Collection

Who ever knew that I would get so much use out of a $3 yellow cami? I also feel the need to disclose that I was only able to wear that scarf draped over my shoulders for about forty five seconds once I left my house. While it may be a dramatic way to wear a scarf, it is not a practical one. Especially if there is the slightest bit of wind. Live and learn.

Have I mentioned that when you see a piece somewhere that you think is special, you must snatch it up? Well, you must. I came across this amazing little yellow snakeskin clutch at a craft fair years ago. It was more than I would normally have paid for a no name bag, but worth every penny. This bag gives ordinary outfits that extra little something to make them special. Truly one of my favorites.

Have you guys been playing with color like I have been this spring?
