Hello Spring! Finally breaking out of my black bubble! My roomie was tossing out some old clothes and I was gifted with this adorable colorblocked top from Ann Taylor. The rest of the outfit naturally came together to match the tan and coral in the top. The comfy tan Lauren Conrad motorcycle jacket is the tan version of my black winter jacket. Yea, I can't be trusted to branch out sometimes. My peach sunglasses where given to me by a friend and I am so glad they didn't fit her face! The unique circle frame is a look I may not have tried myself and I love the retro color. Looking forward to playing with more color this spring!

My trip to Topshop in NYC, was a major success in the accessories department. One of my favorite pieces were these black dip dye tights. When paired with this peter pan collar dress from Lauren Conrad's collection from Kohls, they appeared amazingly office friendly! At first I feared these tights were going to make me look like a freak show. Flashbacks of high school mockery creeping into my mind. The dip dye tights and skeleton cameo necklace give a conservative dress a hint of edge when you take a closer look. Dressing for the office doesn't have to be a total snooze!

Sometimes wacky trends come into style that you couldn't be more grateful for. Of course I'd seen the adorable comic inspired fashions featuring my fav Batman floating around on Etsy, but I hadn't seen anything wearable in the mainstream. In the recent months, comic inspired clothing has been hitting the racks. I find the eye catching crop at Topshop, I felt the short crop offered the perfect amount of comic pattern. Just a little peak of such a loud print I really feel goes a long way. No way was I wearing a belly baring crop top, so I paired my crop top with a black long sleeve tee and high waisted body con to give the illusion I was wearing a dress. Go put a little POW in your wardrobe!

I've been hearing for months light pink and mint are the hottest colors for spring. These pretty palette can be seen spread across the windows of any fast fashion company. Just to point out how hot this light hued color palette is, this post features to pretty ladies in pastel! Jen is representing mint not only with her colored denim but also with her eye-catching necklace. This eBay find features both mint and salmon which is pretty close to blush pink! Once again Jen accents her pastels with blue and tan, a combination I probably never would have thought of. Girl, doesn't have a stitch of black on her! Amazing to me at least! She keeps it light and pretty all the way down to her complimentary manicure.
I can be seen slowly trying to crawl out of my black bag by wearing a light tan and salmon sweater with a white scarf that has salmon accents! You can believe I almost didn't buy this sweater because it wasn't black and white. However nothing is more comfy and easy to wear then an baggy, drapey sweater, the aztec print saves it from being to "mom" if you know what I mean!

Every once in a while I dream up pieces of clothing that I swore I've seen for sale before, so when I want to buy them I am positive they exist. When I began my hunt weeks ago for black and white pieces I had a vision of a black and white striped peplum top, that eventually transformed into a striped peplum dress. Destiny called and I stumbled upon this beauty at Target one day during lunch. The only way I was squeezing into a form fitting body con silhouette would be with some belly hiding from a peplum. I choose to keep everything black and white for this outfit, but it was hard to resist throwing in a good pop of color.
