February Freeze, vol. 1: embellished purple shirt

   I picked an easy piece for my first February Freeze outfit post. Layer a cami underneath, jeans, red earrings and gold jewelry ... done and off to class.

 
     Then my instructor showed up wearing a fabulous cream swing jacket. And I realized how much fun it might be to wear this top with a cream blazer. White and cream are not usually colors I gravitate to, out of practical fears of getting them irreparably dirty, but one of these days I need to get out of my black/navy/denim comfort zone.

  1. This top is utterly gorgeous! I'm totally with you on the white fear train. There's a reason I've never owned white pants.

  5. Erin - I bought a pair of white jeans last year, wore them once, then shoved them to the back of the closet! I'll be wearing them this month.
