I got an e-mail this morning from a reader regarding yesterday's Spring fashion post. She asked:
"I love this look, but I want to accesorize it to fit my style. If you were going to add any accesories to this look, what would you choose?"
My answer: Keep it simple.
Note: Simple doesn't mean boring.
There are ways to be bold and still have your look feel uncluttered and effortless.
For example, consider the gold cuff (above). It's definitely a statement piece, but it's lines are clean and it won't compete with the leather-patched leggings which already command attention.
If you want to rock shades with the ensemble for the sunny spring season (sunshine, this your queue), keep their lines clean and their detailing minimal as well. Your bold, colorful lip is a feminine styling choice, so don't be afraid to go with a more masculine shade.
And a bag? I'd suggest one similar to this style. It's cross-body style keeps the look casual.
Via A Daily Something's Twitter feed, I just discovered that Cuyana currently has a killer ongoing promotion, Cuyana In Color. Entering is as simple as logging into your Pinterest account and pinning some of your favorite items from the latest additions to their collection. And, let's be honest, how many of you don't have a Pinterest window open in your browser already (if it's minimized because you are at work it still counts as having it open)?
Some of the items that I've pinned for the promotion are featured above.
Now, get to work! And by work, I mean pinning.
Above are a few sneak peaks from instagram, but I've got plenty of images lined up to share in the near future, so be sure to stop by!

Hey, Target! This Threshold line I've been seeing a lot of is pretty on point with what's trending in my life right now. I've purchased a few products from the line out of curiosity and intrigue and am beyond satisfied with the quality—especially this white organic blanket from the line. So, what I'm trying to say is: Keep being awesome and making good style affordable and accessible to all!
