Variations on a Theme

coral + stripes  coral + stripes

I've always been drawn to some combination of blue and white punched up with some rosy citrus hue (see here), so it was pretty easy recently to lean towards my favored combo again, this time using a lighter blue and coral-y shade of pink. Makes me think of blooming flowers and warmer days without going too literal, even though the weather hasn't exactly been cooperating recently.

What sweet combination of colors can you not get enough of this spring?

  2. Spring always makes me go to stripes (which are almost always navy and white, for me) and that makes me go to RED! I guess I'm a beachy girl at heart. :) Love these pretty colors on you!

  3. I can't get enough of cobalt. Or orange. Or cobalt and orange. It may be a bit passe and so last season, but I was always a late-on-the-bandwagon kind of girl.

    Oooooh, traveling! I hope you post fun travel pics. I've always liked taking pictures of cows. Don't ask. 0_0

    1. I grew up in NYC - when I first moved out of the city, I was totally that girl who would scream in the car whenever I saw some sort of animal!

    1. Awesome! I think you'll get tons of wear out of the necklace.

  13. Our weather isn't cooperating either so I've been obsessing over navy & yellow. Not totally Springy but feels appropriate for the bipolar weather we've been having lately. Love your coral skirt!

    Safe travels!

  15. I am loving cobalt and emerald together! And of course, classic black and white. Not your typical spring colors but still timeless.

  23. Lisa--I have been such a "respect the shoes" blog lurker for the past few busy months. But let me say, I always come away with the most lovely ideas. You have such an imaginative approach to getting dressed that is both creative and functional. I just love it. I wanna dress like you when I grow up. :) Right now, I'm obsessed with the color combo of navy and any shade of green.

  24. Beautiful colors together, so fun and spring/summer! I've been trying to find a particular color of blue for a couple years and didn't realize scuba blue J.Crew matchstick jeans was it. Also in love with all the happy colors in the tresco floral print.

    1. I always seem to have to buy at least one new pair of JC chino shorts each season - you'd think they wouldn't be able to come up with anymore colors, but they keep doing it. I got the mint/spearmint color this time.
