A Splash of Turquoise

The last two days have reached near 60 degree highs, so its hard for me not to be dreaming of spring. To me, spring means out with my drabby neutral colors, and in with some eye-catching vibrant hues.

For me, the best way to get ready in the morning is picking a MUST wear item – whether its a shoe, a piece of jewelry, or a bold print – and piecing together an outfit that works with it. Today it was a statement necklace. I got this GREAT necklace from one of my best friends in Chicago for my birthday, and I couldn’t wait to plan an outfit around it.

So keeping all that in mind, I created this mood board as my inspiration for today’s outfit:


A handful of the items I even have in my own closet – like that fabulous structured military jacket from Mango.

And here’s how it turned out!



Hopefully this spring weather lasts! I’m not ready to go back to brown, black and grey!
