Primary Colors

 Dress as skirt: Anthropologie (old), Navy sweater: random, Chambray shirt: Old Navy, Boots: Old Navy (old), Accessories: Gap hat, Karen Walker sunglasses, vintage navy necklace, H&M Paris Collection bag, La Mer x Target leopard wrap watch, Nike FuelBand, Alisa Michelle and vintage bracelets, Jimmy Choo x H&M bracelet, Catbird NYC rings, Lulu Frost number ring

I have been on a semi-successful mission to narrow down my wardrobe lately. Part of the process is taking items from the back of the closet to the front and seeing if I reach for them. I've owned this dress for several YEARS now but still find its classic shape and bright color too good to give up on. I love how the dress looks (see here) but find that layering it works just as well. I normally opt for colorful combinations but found my neutral pieces in this outfit surprisingly refreshing. The navy and yellow color pairing remind me of school with the reference to primary colors. Hopefully, I don't look too elementary.

  10. Love these colors together and the red lip is the perfect finish. Choosing wardrobe pieces to give away or sell is so tough - for old favorites and things you haven't worn enough of yet!

  27. I'm so glad I've moved and now have my own closet where I can see everything I own. It really helps to narrow down what I reach for, and don't. I always find purging refreshing. :) Glad you kept that dress though! Yellow is my favorite so I don't think I could give it up either. And that hat is sooooo cute! Is it new at Gap? <3
