Chartreuse







{Purple and Chartreuse Watercolor Printed Dress ~ Mossimo via Target {3 years ago!!} / Chartreuse Open Cardi ~ Simply Vera Wang for Kohl's / Black Lace Up Sandals ~ Mossimo via Target / Louis Vuitton Black Leather Embossed Paris Speedy Cube}

This color combination was so unexpected and fun to wear, I love when that happens. Although this cardi looks more neon yellow in these pics, it was actually a true chartreuse, {I love saying that} which is the perfectly bright shade for the summertime, right in between yellow and green.

This dress was stored away in the "summer bin" down in the garage...and I am just realizing I have never worn it.  Why?  I have no idea, I absolutely adore it!  An easy dress and a cardi or blazer is most definitely my unofficial summer work uniform. I do want to get a few new bottoms to throw into the mix.  A pair of coral and navy trousers would be great additions to my wardrobe. And red skinnies.  Oh, how I NEED red skinnies.  I just recently bought a pair of red ankle pants, but I am on the fence: not sure if I love them or hate them.  I will be wearing them soon though, stay tuned. :) 

...what would you wear with red pants?


xoxo, thanks for reading!

  9. Easy dresses and cardigans are the perfect summer staple and you pull them off so well! I love how you are just not afraid of color and patterns, it's really inspirational since my closet is full of serious solid colors, lol.

    With regards to red pants, I would love to see you pair it with some animal prints. I think that would look hawt!
