Cobalt & Citrus

A lot of bloggers have been craving pastels lately, but I’m not a fan of pastels (you may have read about my war on mint green).  What I’ve been craving are brights.  I gave into that craving today:



I also gave into my craving to pair brights with other brights.  Specifically, I paired cobalt with various citrus hues.   For the cobalt, I wore an open cardigan (Calvin Klein via Ideeli) and leopard flats (Nine West “Naughty”).  For the citrus, I wore a lime-striped tee (Old Navy) and a lemon yellow scarf (Old Navy) dotted with bits of lime and orange.  I grounded the whole look with gray skinnies (Gap).

It’s not the most leg-lengthening look, but it definitely satisfied my craving for bright colors.

Happy Wednesday, All!

  1. Oh, I've got that brights craving BAD, myself. Love the cobalt and yellow. Like lemon trees under blue skies, or something like that.

  3. I'm not a fan of pastels either - why go for soft and pale when you can go for bright and loud?! I love that cardigan - it looks so comfy.

  8. I'm not a big fan of pastels. If I wear 'em, there has to be a LOUD, IN-YOUR-FACE color along with it. Case in point. I am diggin' the brights you've got going on, my friend. (:

  10. I'm with you- I much prefer bright colours to pastels because they just scream (hello world, I'm here!) Those flats are absolutely amazing and I love the bright blue and yellow combo!

  11. You look soooo good in brights, Gracey! I wish I looks as good in pastels (I remain firm in thinking I look like a bonbon) Those leopard print flats are soooo cute!

  14. Those shoes are so adorable! This outfit is the bright bomb. (No, I don't really know what that means, but it sounded really neat in my head.) And finally, we agree on an evil color. Mint green is only for ice cream.

  15. Loving the brights on you, Gracey! The cardigan is just the most perfect blue, it's so pretty with the lemon. And the flats are adorable - blue leopard, LOVE!!!

  17. Love the shoes and that cobalt blue is gorgeous. Unfortunately it is very hard to find Nine West shoes in size Sasquatch, so I probably won't be able to find a pair for myself.
