Inserting Some Color

I've been trying to insert a little color into my wardrobe (especially since it's summertime) and I think I've succeeded today!




In a sewing update, I should be able to show you all my new blouse in the next day or two. I'm so excited to finish it and wear it out and about! 




dress j crew
head band/handkerchief target
shoes target
necklace pangea
 
I think I did a pretty good with the colors. I'll try to keep it up, though I may fall back into my usual habit of wearing mostly neutrals.

I hope you all are having a lovely week!
