ready for spring

Spring is so close and I'm craving bright colors after a winter full of dark neutrals. It's still a bit chilly here to go sleeveless so I added a fun jacket over my new favorite hot pink sleeveless shirt. As a side note, I'm kinda digging the grey/hot pink color combo. They were my only clean skinny jeans when I was getting dressed but it might just be a go to this spring.

grown up green

top (h&m, similar)/pants (gap - in black here, similar - on sale)/shoes (joan and david, love these)/clutch (clare vivier)/sunglasses (rebecca minkoff)/watch (michele)

Even though I'm not Irish I still like to celebrate with my Irish friends on this holiday by mixing a little green into my ensemble and eating corned beef and cabbage. Finding a green that doesn't scream "I'm here to party" seems to be easier these days with all the fatigue and camo colored items in stores, which, to me, feel a little more grown up. I recommend mixing the color with some other neutral colors like tan and black, add a little metal and leopard for good measure and you're ready to roll.
