We Dressed Up

I love TT. And I also love bright colors.  Sometimes when we need to dress up for something I love to color coordinate our outfits (I don't tell him that's what I'm doing though), and by that I mean I love to match TT's tie to my outfit.  You should see his tie collection.  It's worse than my shoe collection.  Which is worse than his belt collection. That might be a lie. 
What I'm wearing:
Top: Banana Republic Sweater Shirt
Skirt: Anthropologie
Belt: Old Navy
Tights: Hue
Shoes: Elizabeth and James

I think by now everyone is ready and waiting for spring.  I am!!  I love colors, especially bright ones, they lighten everything.  The problem is I always want to buy black, white, or grey.  Any ideas on how to spice those colors up without having to buy a whole new wardrobe?

I can't wait til spring arrives too!!
Buy some brightly coloured jewellery or a bag to make black and white clothes look summery - thats what I'd do anyway :)

Jen said...

You guys are the cutest! You are going to make such gorgeous babies :) Hehe. David and I always seem to come out matching in subtle ways when we go out. I don't know how it happens! Swear :p

I think you look very springy already! Just take away the tights and boots and add some pretty sandals and necklaces :) Voilah!

Love the floral skirt - so bright and cheery!!

Some boldly colored or printed scarves could definitely brighten your blacks!

Andie said...

accessories can brighten up even the dullest outfits. bright, bold necklaces, purses, belts, scarves, bracelets and earrings. F21 is a great resource for that stuff! :)
