Color Craze

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Lately I’ve been leaning towards simple basics with a twist.  Instead of going for a plain white blouse with jeans, I opted for a more colorful ensemble  --a fuchsia equipment button up with cobalt blue jeans, metallic grey python platforms, and a grey embroidered clutch.  When wearing bright pieces, you can either tone them down with neutrals, or go all out with equally loud colors.

I bought my first equipment blouse a week ago after hearing how comfortable they were and debated between getting a neutral tan or bright pink.  In the spirit of spring, I felt a bit adventurous, and decided on fuchsia.  I was afraid the bright color would prevent me from wearing it more than once, but it’s now my go to outfit.  The silky smooth blouse feels like butter on skin, and goes just as well with pajama pants as it does dressed up with jeans.  

I wore this outfit to brunch at the penthouse in Santa Monica, and definitely stood out amidst the gorgeous white décor.  I always enjoy dressing up in fussy outfits for brunch, but sometimes I’m in the mood for something simple, floaty, and comfortable.  Plus, a punch of color always brightens my day.  

Hope you all had an indulgent Easter weekend filled with sweets, family gatherings, and rest from a long week of work!
