Lady in Red

During the spring and summer seasons I love wearing rompers because they are so simple to throw on, yet chic and feminine.  They can also be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.  In my Spring Trends blog post, I featured a lightweight floral romper that I paired with some neon heels.  However, today's OOTD showcases this silk romper that I scooped up at Bebe.  What drew me to this piece was the bold color in addition to the detailing and pleats.   Therefore, it's one of my favorite items in the closet as of now.  I decided to go for a bit of a casual look by pairing it with some simple snakeskin sandals, but I also added a big statement necklace and a chunky bracelet with my gold watch.  Adding bold accessories to a solid piece can create a very chic look. 

What I'm wearing:
Bebe romper
F21 necklace & bracelet
GUESS watch
Sally Hansen nail strips

Color Pop

One of my favorite rollover trends for this season is color-blocking for the simple fact that various bold colors can look beautiful together.  However, this is not to say that you should throw on every bright piece that you have in your closet.  It's almost like attending art class all over again!  Primary colors, complementary colors, analogous colors, and triadic colors look great together.  Primary includes red, yellow and blue while complementary colors are opposite on the color wheel (i.e. red/green, yellow/purple, orange/blue).  To dive into it a little deeper, analogous colors are typically next to each other (i.e. red, orange, yellow) and triadic colors are evenly spaced on the color wheel (i.e. green, purple, yellow). 

For today's OOTD, I included the analogous colors red (pink), orange and yellow.  I'm very pleased with the outcome!  Let me know what you think.

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 blazer
Express dress
Target belt
Gifted clutch purse

The Red Jacket + Leopard Print

Happy Wednesday everyone!  As I mentioned in my weight loss post, I have a little baby boy now and today he's 6 months old.  It's amazing how fast time really flies by.  I feel so blessed.  For today's post, I have featured one of my go-to outfits.  I have been collecting blazers in various colors and when I need to put something together that is simple and quick, I grab one of them.  One of the essential pieces that every woman should have in her closet is a red jacket or blazer because it can be paired with a multitude of items.  In this instance, I've paired it with a leopard print top, some distressed black skinny jeans and platform booties.  This look is comfortable, yet put together.  What are some of your go-to pieces?

What I'm wearing:
F21 blazer
Arden B blouse
F21 skinny jeans
Movado watch
