Pop Of Color

A reader asked for me to wear bright colors, I guess because we are slowly transitioning from Winter to Spring and its getting later and later for it to get dark. I paused when I read that because I realized I tend to stick to the darker side of the color wheel. Although I dont think I did exactly what the commenter was asking for, I did add a little more color to the whole scheme of things. I used this pretty neon green sweater and put it over my darker pieces. I like it. I think its a "Im not out of winter yet!" sort of outfit.

Ps. Im eating Swedish Fish in the pictures, so thats what the little red thing Im holding is.

Wearing a Target green sweater, AA unitard, Levis vintage skirt, black floppy hat (not AA!), and Slow + Steady Wins the Race jazz shoes.

That green sweater is beautiful I love it I have a similar one that aqua which i too love. I think that green sweater would also look great with white blouse, maybe it would look more like you full on ready for spring. <3

I think it's funny how you call them swedish fish, why is that? (and I'm not talking about you as in you, just in general but I guess you got' that)

i love that you told us the hat is not from american apparel. i don't know if this is why but i think it's stupid to buy something that is supposed to look vintage when it's actually not so good for you for finding a real floppy hat on your own! (i'm just bitter because when we got an AA, three of my favorite privately-owned clothing stores went out of business) holy rant! love the outfit, the skirt is great & happy arriving spring!

Annie said...

jamie clare said...

target is pretty much the shizzzzzzz.

i need a floppy hat and flat laceup shoes. i should stop reading blogs, they inspire too many purchases. i just can't turn away

Emily said...

that green is fab. i have a lacy dress in the same color. such a fun way to bring a little sunshine to any outfit.

JoliJoy said...

Oh HAY
I NEED TO WEAR BIRGHT COLORS NOW!
I think I stick to black WAY too much. also, I love how you wear that pretty lipstick so well (is it lipstick or are your lip just red?). You always look so sophisticated and adult-like, but not in the way where it seems like a teen trying to dress like an adult.
Okay never mind I'm being confusing.
Anyway, I love the outfit, and i need those shoes!
