Outfit Inspiration + Color Crush

March 16, 2015

Spring is on the way and that means it’s time to lighten up your wardrobe. I don’t know about you, but I’m beyond delighted to trade in drab colors and layers for warm tones and delicate pieces. Although, because March is such a transitional time of year (i.e. it feels like winter in the shade and spring in the sunlight–at least on the East Coast), I like to ease into the season with a subdued, yet refreshingly bright color palette.

My current color combo crush? A soft mix of powder blue, cream, and burgundy. For this outfit inspiration post, I paired an off-white blouse with a pastel pencil skirt. An accessory in a deep hue (like this burgundy clutch) keeps the whole style out of summer territory. If you’re over the winter blues, liven up your look with soft textures and vivid colors.

    This is such a sweetly stunning combination! I adore that powder blue for spring; the slouchy blouse perfectly offsets the crisp pencil skirt.
