    Rainbow Brights

    Taking a break from all my neutral looks…KIDDING! I love color in every season because it simply can add aesthetic pleasure to a look! When I saw this green skirt from the Eva Mendes collection at New York & Company, it was a no-brainer purchase. In fact, my younger sister liked it so much I had to go back to the store and purchase one for her. It happened to also be the last one in the store in our size! I paid full price but it is currently on sale, even better right? Some may not like the color but I find it beautiful.

    I also like neutrals so when I came across this fun t-shirt, I thought what a great way to pair with jeans or …yes, this skirt! The t-shirt about sums up how moms tend to be elevated in the eyes of our kids. To our kids, we are everything. It can even be worn in the Fall with a light jacket.

    For this look, I paired the skirt and t-shirt with a Kate Spade purse and then added another pop of color with these bright orange shoes :). Now isn’t this simply rainbow bright in contrast to the background?

    The #1 Trick to Adding Patterns and Colors to Any Wardrobe


    I often go through phases when I’m constantly filling my wardrobe with neutrals, and then one day, I am looking for that splash of color and realize how colorless my wardrobe is! I am sure we have all had that moment or two! So this summer, I am loving all things bright, colorful, and feminine. I especially love anything with patterns and a clean cut like this dress which takes me back to the 80’s (well almost).

    This purple-and-white gingham pattern dress from ModCloth is one of my favorites because of the lovely backline and detailing with the scalloped trim on the neckline and sleeves. It is also under $100 and such a pretty color. If you aren’t used to wearing a lot of color, even investing in a piece like this checkered outfit with two tone colors might seem like a lot but it makes for a great statement outfit. You can always balance an outfit with bold pieces of jewelry or neutral accessories like white shoes and neutral toned bag  (love this one from Ted Baker)! I usually try to keep my lipstick shade more on the natural nude side but you can always opt for more color.

    I guess at the end of the day, it is always nice to add a little color to your wardrobe for the days when you need more of a statement look.
