Springtime Blues

When I was little and was asked my favorite color, my answers were either “silver” or “the blue you see in a blue sky on a sunny day.”  Not much has changed since that time in the favorite color department, except that I’ve realized that I’ve figured out that the blues I spoke of were either cobalt or periwinkle.  To this day, the second I see the exact color I adore hanging in-store, I immediately gravitate towards that item.

Thus is the case with this J. Crew top that I recently found in-store and I couldn’t wait to add it to my wardrobe (…and it’s ON SALE!  Check out the link below.)  While I am typically relatively uncomfortable with deep v-necks or tops without structure, I ended going with a bandeau underneath, which covered the structure and raised the neckline on the top.  Pairing this with white, Lilly Pulitzer corduroys that I originally purchased on Rue La La long ago (linked to similar options from Lilly below), nude Jimmy Choo heels (linked below), and a small pop of color from my Anthropology green earrings, my goal was keep the top as the star of the show.   And I love how the overall look turned out!

    I wear white whenever I want to—haha! I love flowy floral tops and skinny jeans with cute sandals or flats in the spring!

      So right! I’m loving some of the bigger florals that are coming out this season. They’re the perfect Spring addition, without being too over-the-top girlie. 🙂
