Green and blue for spring

One of the big color trends for the spring 2017 season is to wear green and blue together. I love how the two colors look with each other. Since green, blue, purple, and pink are my favorite colors, wearing any combination of them makes me happy!

I wore this outfit over the weekend to attend a fundraiser with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. Although this was perfect for the green-themed occasion, it is a dress I know I will find myself reaching for over and over again throughout spring; and this summer too! After all, “Greenery” is the color of the year! Therefore, all things green are fabulous! Love!

What do you think of green and blue together for the spring 2017 season? Is it a color trend you might find yourself wearing too?

How to style a circle bag for summer

When Mansur Gavriel first showcased their new circle bag at fashion week, I knew I had to have one. I was not exactly sure how to style a circle bag, but I figured I would find a way to make this vintage inspired piece modern.

I fell in love with this scarf skirt from Banana Republic when I first laid eyes on it. It happened to arrive the same week as my new Mansur Gavriel circle bag, which made me realize; this is how to style a circle bag for summer! Yes!

The circle bag looks perfect with this skirt. I love the cammello tan leather with the red based print. I think the colors work well together. In addition to this skirt, I have found this circle bag also plays well with casual prints, and denim. It takes on a modern look when paired with flares, as well as wide leg, printed pants. I love it!

I wore this outfit on Mother’s Day, and it felt comfortable, yet structured. I wore a tank top underneath the blouse, which meant I had two items tucked into the waist of my skirt. While it did add a little weight by being tucked in, I thought it worked well with the overall silhouette. The skirt is flowing, yet full. It definitely needs a tucked in top, or a crop top.

My kids thought my circle bag was a lot of fun, they continually reached inside. I think zipping, and unzipping a circle was novel to them. They had a blast! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have spotted the photo where my son made a paper flower at church for Mother’s Day, and decorated my circle bag with it. Loved it!

If you like the look of Mansur Gavriel’s circle bag, but are wondering how functional the bag may be, never fear, my review will be here! On Friday I will post my full review of Mansur Gavriel’s circle bag.

I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s Day last weekend, thank you for stopping by, and stay fabulous 😉

This skirt! When I received my fall 2015 JCrew catalog a few weeks ago in the mail, I almost fell off my chair when I spotted this midi skirt in the pages of the glossy. The laser cut overlay, and the beautiful burgundy hue, spoke to me.

Rarely does clothing speak to me; especially in the form of “you need me now!” Normally I see something I like, I ponder it, I try to match it with other things in my closet, then I make my decision. With this midi skirt, I did not have to think, I just knew it was “the one.”

JCrew offers the skirt in burgundy, navy, and black. These are all fabulous colors, but I felt the burgundy/wine hue was really exceptional. This color sets off the laser cut-outs, making the midi skirt incredibly interesting. Love that!

When I received this laser cut midi skirt in the mail, it was even prettier than I imagined. In person, the cut-outs, and the color, are exceptional. I know I will be wearing this midi skirt all season long!

My beautiful nine-year-old daughter snapped these pictures before church last Sunday. It was the first time I wore the skirt, and I was thrilled! My two daughters love it too! 🙂

I paired this laser cut midi skirt with a simple white top from my closet. I cannot wait to start pairing it with thicker fabrics, knitwear, and even sweaters! Bring on the cold weather!

I also need to give a shout-out to the fabulous pair of earrings, and beautiful necklace by Kendra Scott I am wearing in these photos. I received them last week at the RewardStyle Master Class in San Francisco. Kendra Scott’s team was there showing the fall collection, and how the Color Bar works. 

As a huge fan of Kendra Scott’s gems, I was thrilled to receive these two items. The earrings are fabulous. They can be worn with, or without, the earring jacket. Two in one =  fabulous! ( and a money saver ;-)) 

This necklace is also a perfect closet staple. It matches everything, of course, and transcends trends. I love timeless pieces; and would love to own it in every color!

Have you found a key piece this fall which speaks to you?
