Give Me Color!

So I’m really, really trying to steer clear of my black uniform. I’m one of those people who will wear black year round. Bright colors & color blocking is very trendy for spring/summer. I am opting for more color in my summer wardrobe (oh and more skirts/dresses). I have already made my spring/summer clothing wishlist. More corals, yellows, & wedges!!
Let’s take a vow: Let’s vow not to buy another piece of black clothing until August! Who is with me? LOL
Pants: Rue21, Shirt: Thrif, Shoes: Madden, Belt: H&M,Clutch: JCPenney, Necklace & Bracelet: Purchased from a friend
I will give you guys another sneak peek of my closet next week. It’s not nearly where I want it, but I do have the shoes, clothes, and clutches portion complete and organized. My Sweety put up my sewing machine & table!! YAY!!  I need to buy some decor for it now….a rug, some curtains, a dress form, mirrors, etc. It just feels so cold and drab. But it feels good to have room to walk around in my closet.
The shoes I’m wearing are from my latest Madden haul. I received alot of comments saying that they look extremely high. Well, my friends, they are! BUT, because of the built in front platform, they are very do-able. They do make me look like I’m standing on stilts though…stylish stilts! Ha!

Thank you for stopping by,

    Love these colors together, and those shoes are calling my name! I'm not big on black, though I need to find a black top in the next few weeks, so I can't take the challenge with you, but I will make sure you stick to no black buying until August! :-$

    You know what's crazy? I wento H&M yesterday, tried on a pair of coral jeans and turned them down because I felt like it was way too much.

    I really need to get out of that mentality. My closet is black, grey & brown.

    I love how well you wear color. I love the fit of the jeans too! This outfit would brighten up anyone's day!

    oh wow color, i know that it is a trend and that many will follow that trend, but it actually a very hard trend to pull off. but you have nailed it. the blue looks smashing and i love the combination of the shoes and the jeans. the pink blouse looks so delicate, i love it because it is a soft pink. the jewelry are just perfect. and i am definitely in love with that clutch
