A little springtime...
dress - H&M, cardigan - J.Crew, tights - Joe Fresh, necklace - Cleo, boots - Steve Madden
Unlike the last couple of outfit posts, this one is composed entirely of pieces I've acquired in the last year. My goal for today was to break out of the blacks and greys of winter, and play around with a little colour.
I have a lot of trouble with incorporating paler shades into my outfits, although I do love them. I tend to gravitate towards blacks, greys, navy and brown neutrals with bright pops of colour. So when I put on this dress, my first instinct was to pair it with a berry purple jewel tone cardigan. Then this peachy one caught my eye, and I decided to go against the grain and wear it instead.
I'm pleased with the results. I think the peach compliments the green nicely, and makes me feel one step closer to spring. I'm so glad I broke out of my comfort zone today.
What colours do you gravitate towards?
