Orchid

Dress: Forever 21 (via eBay last seen here), Cardigan: Cotton On (last seen here), Sneakers: Chucks, Accessories: Gap knit hat, La Mer x Target leopard wrap watch, Catbird rings, bombom dainty ring (c/o), vintage rings, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli 

I'm having major color envy with this orchid cardigan. Purple is my favorite color but I really don't own many items in this shade. I'm loving the color for spring right now though and I'm so glad to have at least this piece. The great thing about the lightweight cardigan is that I can layer with it through spring and into summer. I can take it off when it gets too warm as easily as I can throw it on when there's a chill in the air. With it's vibrant color, it's a great pop  to add to an outfit.

  4. Such a wonderful color on you! Really says "BAM! SPRING!" I wish the weather would be like that. We've been getting quite crappy rain for the past five days. I'm over it, haha. But the sun in your photos reminds me there is light :)

  12. Oh, I wasn't expecting the shoes in this ensemble. As I was scrolling down I was thinking I would see heels or sandals, but I do love the black sneakers. You are being 'sneaky', hahahaha.
