Celebrate Spring with an Eye-Catching Outfit!

When I first laid eyes on this bold and bright ensemble styled by Holly of Holly Dolly, I was smitten with her perfect mix of patterns and vibrant choice of hues. To emulate her saturated look, single out two colors to act as anchors — like spring green and tangerine — then mix in some florals and a black and white accessory for a springtime-ready look that will inspire a bouquet of compliments! If the warm weather hasn’t quite hit in your neck of the woods, throw a neutrally hued cardigan over your shoulders to keep out the breeze.

SKIRT – Someone to Depend Lawn Skirt
SCARF – Painting Faces Scarf
TOP – From Where Beauty Stems Top
CARDIGAN – Charter School Cardigan in Black
SHOES – Oh My Darling Wedge
BAG – Upper Haight Shoulder Bag

    Beautiful! I love the way you took inspiration from the outfit rather than copying it flat out. All of the pieces are accounted for and the feel is definitely there, but in a way that is uniquely yours. 🙂

    Great fashion tips! I love these colors together. It’s amazing how you can mix solids and patterns and they all look good together. I think if you just accessorize with some jewelry the look is complete. Well Done!

    I love the bold denim! I recently purchased some royal blue skinnies and paired them with a fun houndstooth blazer – check it out:
