A Spring Thing

Caslon Racerback Maxi Dress, $68 at Nordstroms, Resplendent Statement necklace, $28 at Threadsence, Tingo T-Strap sandals, $78 at Anthropologie

I shared my book find from the thrift store earlier this week but I went there to find black pants for work. I succeeded in my questioning for a pair of nice, inexpensive pants and discovered a brand I’d never heard of as well: Caslon. It is sold at Nordstroms (which explains why I haven’t heard of it, Nordies is out of my price range) and features some nice staple pieces.

Anyway, I decided to check out more about them online and discovered the maxi dress above. I thought it’d be cute with some little added punches of color. I think I’d also throw a yellow boyfriend blazer over it to dress it up a little (I couldn’t find a picture of one that I liked to share here).

So, that’s my attempt at fashion for the week! I truly hope I’m getting better at it. Until next time!

Orange + Pink + Black

I’m loving this fresh and sophisticated color combination right now! It just pops and announces that spring and summer are on the way. Amid the photos above (all from Pinterest) are new fashions from J. Crew, art from Laurie Rollit, colorblocked pillows, a pinstripe cake and other fun and infectiously colored items.

Holly Penikas shared this colorful sign… a little kitschy but again, I love the color combination. This just proves that it really is a timeless combo.

It could also be great as a bold choice for a girl’s bedroom…

The just right pops of color to keep a library from being just a dull reading room:

I haven’t always been a fan of the color yellow. In fact, at one point I was all about neutrals and all other colors be darned! Thankfully, I’m way more open to color now. Good thing too; there are some awesome products in some really amazing hues these days. This part lemony, part yolky bright yellow is adorning a lot of cool things from clothes to interiors. So yeah, I’m a bit obsessed with yellow right now. How about you? What colors are you craving?

Have a great weekend everyone, I’ll see you next time. 🙂
