Color Popping and Textures

Cobalt pumps because 70 and sunny is begging for 'em.  It's also begging you to eat a bowl of ice cream.  Feel me?  

I went for an all black and white look otherwise, but tried to play with texture with the lace top.  It's a small detail that is probably insignificant to a lot of people, but I feel the difference!  It's busier than I'm naturally inclined to do, which would be to go for a totally solid and untextured top, but I appreciated the subtlety.

And while we're at it with texture, why not add a clutch with woven detail?  Crazy, I know.  ;)  I mentioned this clutch on Friday, but I wanted to highlight it because I really like how big it is.  And by that, what I really mean is that it can fit an iPad.  I don't know why that makes me so happy, but it does.  Life is about simple joys, my friends.  Like, a sunny day, a bowl of chocolate ice cream, and a clutch that can fit an iPad.  Now only if I had a clutch that could fit a bowl of chocolate ice cream, I'd be set.

  4. I LOVE this outfit!!! I always wear my red pumps with my black and white outfit, but I really like the cobalt pair!

  5. I love this look! What a fun pop of blue!

  6. 70 degrees? I am so jealous! Love that striped blazer with the lace!

  7. Can't get enough of this outfit!! I may have to recreate it. Oh and I am so jealous! I want 70 degree weather!


  8. This is so cute! The kind of basic but nice outfit I need to figure out how to put together on my own!

  9. I found a similar jacket at WalMart today for $20.

  10. I'm always looking for new ways to style this blazer! (I have the exact same one.) Thanks for the inspiration. You look great, and those blue heels are the perfect touch :)

  11. love your heels<3


  12. I am so glad you styled this tee! I just bought one that is similar and need style tips! I love it with the blazer! My top is white so I will need more colored layers, but I think I am going to pick up a black one now! It will go with everything this spring! Susan

  13. Great combination - the stripped blazer works really well with those pants and I love the pop of color from your shoes


  14. Texture is a great way to jazz up a black and white outfit without it being too much, especially for the office! Great job! It reminds me that I have some ivory lace leftover and I can probably made a knit top with a lace overlay!

  15. Hi Audrey..been following your blog for ages now!!! Love your cute ideas and outfits. Could you please write a post on finding jeans and trousers that do not sag in the butt mid-day? I am rectangular in shape with a flattish- butt area and this is my biggest shopping challenge :( Ive tried various brands Levis, Gap, Old Navy but by lunchtime, I have a baggy butt. Gap is the worst - I own some 4 pairs of various styles and ALL of them end up like this. Can you please suggest affordable brands that hold shape or trial room tips while making denim purchases? Thanks!!!

  16. I'm noticing the ice cream theme hehe. I have a pair of cobalt blue wedge heels that I LOVE to use as a pop of color. It's too fun to resist. :)
