flower power

BLACK Saks Fifth Avenue silk top, Off Fifth
Love Fire pants and Carole agate necklace, Nordstrom Rack

       Instead of power dressing, why not try flower dressing? I wore this to work the other day and felt a little like a tulip, which isn't a bad thing when I'm feverishly compiling my data binder.
       I'm still not convinced that blush doesn't translate to blah on me. I love this color on other people, but I'm not used to seeing myself in pastels. What drew me to this top, however, was the interesting cut and draping. I think it's one of those items of clothing that looks better in motion.

What color or colors are out of your comfort zone?


  1. I have such a problem with orange. I'm working on working through it. It's not one of my favorite colors AT ALL, but it looks so great on people like you, Gracey, and Mia. So I want to try it, but it frustrates me. I'm doing a much better time on my teal issue. (Color issues, such a problem!)

  2. you are SOO pretty

  4. I think you look AMAZING in blush. I think you have the perfect skin to suit the color. I wear it sometimes, but I know it washes ME out.

  5. Lovely! I picked up a yellow cardigan at a clothing swap recently -- definitely out of my comfort zone.

  6. I used to stay away from yellow, but now it's one of my favorite colors - it really goes well with the tons of navy blue I have in my wardrobe. Looking forward to seeing how you style your bright cardigan!

  7. Thanks, Megan! Pastels feel very girly to me, which is not really my thing, but this top is so pretty that it will definitely be worn again.

  8. Thanks, Mark! To be honest, olive green is still a color that baffles me, but I liked the idea of pairing it with pink.

  9. Erin - I think orange would really suit your coloring! And yay for progress on the teal issue. :)
