Brights and animal print?!

Brights & Animal Prints

So, as you can tell by all the visual noise in my last few pictures, the last few days have been a crazy whirlwind (of fun)!  I’m taking pictures on the fly!

Today’s outfit was inspired by Sandra Gray’s pairing of leopard print with a bright accent. While I love brights and prints together, I decided to create a lower-key look along the same lines for those of you who may like the concept of pairing an animal print and a bright, but aren’t comfortable with wearing animal print head-to-toe.

In this outfit, the shorts do all the heavy lifting. Bright orange with little palm trees (I do live in Florida, after all) and trimmed in ocelot print, I could pair these shorts with another bright (fuschia wedges, anyone?).

However, today I’m taking more of a “lady who lunches” approach with this ivory sweater, black ballet flats, and layers of pearls. I’m willing to bet that almost every one of you has these basic pieces in your wardrobe, and a great way to infuse them with life this spring is to take a cue from Sandra Gray and get wild and bright!

I hope to see you at The Ultimate Fashion Experience tonight!

Budget Brights

Looky what I found!

If you are a little reticent to rock brights head-to-toe (or, like me, are quite frankly scared to for fear of being all-too-accurately dubbed a “highlighter” by my friend Erica), here is an inexpensive, low-commitment way to dip your toe in the water.

While on a quick foray into Target recently, this shiny eye candy caught, well, my eye.  Pair it with the pastel cardigan you picked up in the spring, add a pop of color to your white tee and cutoffs this summer, and use it to rock the tonal looks cropping up in the fall.  At $16, you can let it go without tears when we eventually transition into more neutral territory.
