winter florals

since sunday's outfit was full of neutral goodness, i thought i'd share a more colorful one today!
as i mentioned before, i have been struggling to bring color into my outfits. i have just been loving the plain whites, blacks, and grays with tons of added accessories such as jewelry and vests!!

but last weekend, Kirsten {love this chick} and i got to play some, and she went through my closet and helped me to see my closet through a fresh new set of eyes. sometimes a girl just needs that, ya know!?? and since it's winter, sometimes it's nice to have a bright outfit to get you excited for spring... whenever that will come!!

so here's what she came up with!! :)






cardi: old navy
shirt, dress, & booties: target, sale
belt: thrifted
tights: american apparel
thanks again, K for snappin' my shots!
be sure to check her out here.
xoxo

Great outfit. I have trouble finding pattern in my wardrobe sometimes. It gives a great addition of colour. I love the neutrals of the shirt and cardi against it.

Love those colors! As Spring and Summer start to come into reach, I always find myself gravitating to brightly colored outfits! I have this one skirt that is super Summery, I always put it on when I yearning for Spring! It's lime green with blue-ish flowers.
