What I'm Wearing: Yellow + Turquoise!

11:30 PM

I use to be so afraid of color.  My entire wardrobe consisted of black, grey and white/ivory.  I even wore French tip nails for YEARS because I wouldn't dare wear "color" on my hands.  It feels good to step outside of my comfort zone.

Today was a very full day.  I had so much today.  This picture was taken around 7 pm.  I love the fact that these pants held up all day without showing a lot of wrinkles from sitting and driving.  
I'm loving bright color blocking. I'm so glad that this trend is carrying over into spring.  Had it not, I'd be doing it anyway.  It just makes sense!  These colors of bright yellow and turquoise/peacock blue make me feel as though I'm willing spring to arrive as soon as possible.  
I added other bright colors too with an orange studded bracelet and Peony pink polish.
Since I represented so much color with my clothing and accessories, I decided to go with a "nude" shoe.
Wearing:  sweater: J. Crew; belt:  Anne Klein; pants:  Vogue 8774; shoes: Steve Madden

  9. Boy did your comment about color hit home for me. I am so afraid of color, and I am so TIRED of my bland wardrobe. It's your use of color that drew me to your blog in the first place so I'm so surprised and invigorated by your statement. There's hope for me yet. Have to add that I love your hair too--very fresh and flattering.

  10. Celeste, adding color to my wardrobe has been a gradual change over the last year or so. I would "force" myself to walk away from the black fabric and grab some with color!

  12. Erica hi. (My first comment here, so I feel a bit awkward). You are an inspiration to me. I like the way you play with style and colour. I have watched you here and also on chictopia and I can honestly say have given me the courage to finally dare to embrace colour. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I am a trained fashion designer by the way, maybe that will give you an idea what this means to me. THANK YOU!!

  14. This outfit looks great, definitely something I would not think of...LOL. I am one of those colorless people (black/brown/gray), but am willing to try some because I have been loving the stuff you have been putting together as well as some of the other bloggers, such as Mimi. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Great colors and looks fab on you. Bold colors are exploding in each store I have gone into and was inspired and purchased a yellow cardigan. I think they labeled the color bamboo. Its funny I will wear bold abstract colors and shy away from solid bold colors, but you have inspired me to step outside my comfort zone. Thanks.

    1. Sheila, I've been seeing brights as well. Even the muted palettes are pretty Easter-like pastels.

  18. I love what you wear! You have inspired me so much that yesterday I braved a snowstorm to drive to JoAnns just so I could get the Vogue jeans pattern on sale & fabric. I figure living in ice & snow is all the more reason to look stylish!
