one of the things i love best about summer is the fresh color palette that it offers. greens, pinks, purples are all found in abundance this time of year. just take a walk outside if you don’t believe me. for today’s ootd, i’ve allowed nature to be my inspiration for my color schemes of lilac and green. first, i stayed with the basics that make up the bulk of my wardrobe: pencil skirt, cashmere cardigan, and jacket. but when i add the green jacket the entire outfit pops. remember, it’s always one element that can elevate your work outfit from humdrum to stylish. a pair of pink pointy-toed pumps, and green and white tote polish off the outfit. add a string of pearls looped around my neck, and i’m ready to face monday morning.
