Brighten Up

Let's face it, I'm a neutrals girl at heart. I love my white t-shirts, dark skinny jeans, staple leather bags, and cardigans in every neutral color imaginable. However, when spring rolls around I usually catch the brightness bug that seems to be going around and end up with a hot fever for bold colors. Well, this years appears to be no different and right now I'm eyeing some colorful tops and beauty products to bring into my spring clothing and makeup wardrobe. First thing I checked off my list recently - this coral/orangey balm stain from Revlon in Rendezvous (which I'm totally smitten with)!

Today it hit 90 degrees in Phoenix and I'm sure that I won't be reaching for this exact outfit again anytime soon (well, maybe, I do love my layering). Scott and I are in the midst of spring break and having been spending many mornings/afternoons/evenings at coffee shops, people watching and working on school work (I - comps exams preparation, He - a paper & some test preparation). Even though we've been bogged down by work, we have been sneaking away for a few shopping trips (me) and an evening out (him with his brothers). I've already made a few spring beauty purchases, but I'm in need of a few new spring staples. The problem is though, I haven't quite found many things that I'm liking currently in the stores. Have you found any good spring staples lately?

Outfit details:
Sweater: Banana Republic
Scarf: vintage
top: Levi's
Bracelets: c/o Stowe Street & Pandora
Jeans: Levi's
Moccasins: Minnetonka Moccasin

How has your week been? What have you been up to? What's your most coveting spring wardrobe or beauty piece?

  1. That lip colour looks so great on you Chels, love it! I've tried orangey colours and have yet to find one that works with my skin tone. I think I might have to stick with pinks and reds.

    I too catch that spring colours bug, I bought 2 pink pieces the other day & I totally do NOT wear pink...ever. Anyway, I love them and they really brighten up my skin YA!

    I work at an independant shoe store but they also own 2 clothing stores that are right across the street so between the 2 of them I've found some really amazing pieces for Spring as they pretty much carry all of my favourite brands between the 2 stores (Free People, Obey, Levis, Mink Pink, etc) Good luck in your Spring shopping! Be sure to share your beauty products you picked out :) I love when you do

  2. I am all about brights! Maybe too bright sometimes!! But for Spring, it's always so fun :)
