Classic spring colors

IMG_2833Classic spring color palate; White, Navy and Hot Pink accents.  My husband actually teased me the other day about the amount of pink I’ve been adding to my wardrobe, but it’s a favorite accent color for me.  Never baby pink; always bright hot pinks.

  • Navy striped tee (Ralph Lauren Outlet, similar)
  • White, Navy and pink cardigan (Eloquii)
  • White straight leg jeans (Coldwater Creek)
  • Pink Canvas Pocket Tote (Michael Kors; old)
  • Navy sandals (Kenneth Cole Reaction, purchased at TJMaxx)
  • Pink shell necklace (old)
  • Pink leather bracelet (old)
  • Pink sunglasses (Betsey Johnson, purchased through LittleBlackBag)

Before I got into purse, I had 2 identical bags that I alternated between.  These Michael Kors Pocket Totes are nearly perfect in terms of size and shape.  I have this one in pink that I carried spring and summer, and a leopard print version that I carried fall and winter.  I refuse to get rid of them; they are still awesome bags.  So they are still part of my regular rotation!

This outfit was inspired by a couple of other outfits I’ve seen lately involving stripes on stripes.  I think it’s a fun look.  If the stripes are the same colors, they actually look great if the “main” color is reversed (as in this case) or if the stripes are of different sizes/thicknesses.

However for a cheap dime-store necklace, that pink fake shell thing is getting a lot of wear.  I need to go shopping and find something better that can still bring the color in but be more in tune with my style shape-wise.

I also am still on the hunt for a pair of navy-ish sandals that I love.  These are OK, but not as comfortable as I would prefer and don’t have any heel at all.  I would prefer some heel (an inch or two).  So that hunt goes on.  (I could have worn the navy cape cod polka dot sandals last worn here, but felt like that would be a bit much with the stripes on stripes.)
