lately, the weather is definitely having an identity crisis. spring, summer, winter? make up your mind mother nature, make up your mind! here in georgia we’ve had all three seasons show up on our doorstep in the span of a week. and if you don’t think this schizophrenic behavior is wreaking havoc on my outfit choices, well, it is. so i’ll just play it safe today and add a pop of spring color into the mix. if you couldn’t tell, my ootd inspiration is taken directly from this darling polka dot tote. who can resist a cheerful pattern like that?
a monochromatic outfit is spiffed up with a shocking pink cardigan popped over the top. and if i’m going for the pizazz factor i might as well add a pair of pink shoes. luckily, our thunderstorms passed through town early this morning so my suede shoes have nothin’ but clear skies in the forecast. now if those temps would only cooperate.
well, ladies, the weekend is firmly in sight. hooray, as that means i’m headed to charleston in the morning. i’m soooo ready for a little r&r! why is it some weeks seem like a million years and others pass by in a nano-second?!

pink + black = lovely match
one of my favorite color combo’s, maria! but we can’t forget about navy and pink.
Pink and black…a classic combo… Love the necklace and the bag…nothing as feminine as a d’orsay pump… Enjoy your stay in Charleston. Beautiful city…pictures, please. xoxo
pink and black or navy and pink are two of my all-time favorite color combo’s. i hope you are enjoying the charleston photos. what a gorgeous city.
Maybe the polka dots were the inspiration first but you have to admit the hot pink garage door had to give you a lift too! Another confirmation that architecture and fashion are kissing cousins.-Laurel
you are so right, miss laurel! and this pink garage is one of our favorite backgrounds to shoot photos.
Nice One Loved that polka dot style bag….
this polka dot bag is so darn cheerful. perfect for spring.
I can see why you love pink – it looks great and so spring like with the polka dots. I love the pink necklace too. Although I am a jewelry lover since childhood, I stick to metals, especially bold silver ones rather than colored beads. Maybe I’ll branch out a bit!
hi rebecca! what’s not to love about bold silver jewelry?! it sounds as if you know what you like and stick to it. if you branch out with your choices let me know what you find.
Love the pink shoes with this. Great look!
hi sue! i’m catching up on comments today. pink is the word in my world. that is all.
