Today's Everyday Fashion: Blue

 
 

I would call today's look a "spring preview" but this is the weather we've been having lately! It certainly feels like spring, so I couldn't wait to give a necklace and earrings from Stella & Dot's spring collection a test drive. This look could also work with a cobalt wool coat, a cobalt pencil skirt, or white jeans for other seasons. I didn't originally intend to wear these earrings and necklace together but once they arrived I couldn't wait to try them as a combo. I love ocean blue tones on an otherwise simple look!

The runway: where fashion is an art form, and for the most part, does not translate well into real life. Today's look is one exception, though, because cobalt, black and white is an awesome color combination that can be interpreted lots of different ways. So many ways, that I decided to put together two versions based on the runway inspiration. One could be for the office, the other for a date. One is more rock 'n' roll, the other is more retro.  I love that there are no rules in fashion, because really you can wear it anyway you'd like! Which version do you prefer?

Today's Everyday Fashion: My Perfect Sweater

 
 
 
 

If there's such thing as the sweater lottery, then I've won it. Because not only is this sweater the exact lace up style that I wanted, and the first one I've seen under $50, but it's also so soft and comfy that I've already worn it three times! Ivory sweaters have always been a mainstay in my closet, and today's easy look is one I will definitely be throwing on again and again. What makes a sweater "perfect" for you?
