With the exception of my Havaianas flip-flop collection that could rival the ROYGBIV spectrum, I’ve recently noticed that my summer wardrobe is a little…lackluster. Black? I got you covered. Cognac? Say no more. Gray? White? Cream? You know it. Color?…crickets. As I mentioned in last week’s post, I’m making an effort to change this but in the mean time, a fun way I like to add color to my outfits in small doses is through accessories.
I recently passed by this amazing mural in downtown Arlington and it inspired this entire shoot. I mean, we are talking about color so I wanted to have a little fun with it! One of the benefits when wearing neutrals is that it really allows colorful accents to stand out. I love this white dress from Nordie’s for multiple reasons; it’s a great blank canvas, can be dressed up or down, is perfect for summer, and the midi-length makes me feel like I’m in the Sound of Music #lifegoals. As this look is all about colorful details, I added the Rivington Crossbody in Ultramarine. Tassels are everywhere this season and I love the trendy touch on an otherwise classic bag. (If you feel like a little web window shopping, you can check out the rest of the Summer 2016 Collection here. This bag in pink is next on my list!)
Speaking of pink, I have a PSA for all my ladies that love big earrings but hate the heaviness that come along with them. I have been obsessing over these amazing lightweight leather earrings from Nickel + Suede lately! I haven’t been able to wear anything other than studs for years because they’re usually too heavy on my ears. What I love about Nickel + Suede is that all of their earrings are made of leather, making them super lightweight and easy to wear (so much so that I forgot I had them on one night and went to bed with them in!). They’re perfect for me because I can still get the look I like without having so suffer the consequences #gamechanger. The leather earrings come in several different sizes; small, medium, and large, and a bunch of different colors (see all of them here.)
Needless to say, adding a little extra color to my look with these pink beauties was the perfect finishing touch! Thanks for reading!
