Out of the Blue





{Royal Blue Dress ~ Forever 21 + / Animal Printed Cardi ~ H&M / Taupe Leather Booties ~ MRKT / Faceted Glass Bead Necklace ~ Express / Leather Handbag ~ Rachel Zoe for QVC / Multi Hoop Gold Earrings ~ Alfani via Macy's}

When I bought this bright blue dress, I immediately knew I wanted to rock the BRIGHT color blocking trend when I wore it.  My HOT pink wide suede belt with maybe a yellow blazer.  Unexpectedly, at the last minute, I decided to go the total opposite and pair this with neutrals, minimal jewelry and I just love the way it turned out. 

It was 80+ degrees on Monday so I decided to get the hair off my neck and go with a messy top bun.  Cory pointed out that I should do this more often; he loves it, which makes me love it even more. ;)

Admittedly, I was thinking I should have popped a belt on with this dress; it sorta looks like something is missing without one.  Oh well, I will have all spring and summer to remix the styling of this baby and I'm excited!

xoxo, thanks for reading!

  3. How much do I love? LOTS!!!! You have made me kick myself for not ordering the animal print cardigan from Old Navy, today! I have a tiered INC skirt the same color blue and could have rocked it with the cardi. *runs to get Old Navy credit card* I must order it (if I am not over my credit limit *fingers crossed*)!

  17. I'm weak for anything paired pretty with my sorority colors! Where do you find your creativity? I would have never thought to put animal print with a primamry color from the other side of the spectrum, unless it was a pair of shoes or a skinny belt!

  23. LOVE THIS! A belt would add the "Lexy" signature, but you SO don't need it. The large print leopard is perfect against the cobalt blue. I love your hair like this too! Smokin!

  25. I was in F21 and did not see this dress, you find all the cutest things. I like it paired with neutrals, that way the dress remains star of the show. Going shopping with Lexy is on my bucket list.

  26. Okay. You rock many a color, but I declare you do a li'l sumpin' to royal blue that I ain't seent befo' :)

    And the oh-so-tousled'n such look?

    Hursh.

  27. I'm kinda glad you went the opposite way. I mean a yellow blazer and hot pink belt would be nice but then your yellow blazer wouldn't stand out against these gorgeous sunshine flowers! I love this look with blue and tan. It's one of my favourite colour combinations.
