Take a Break From Color

Don’t forget to enter our $150 American Express gift card and KM2 Shoes giveaways!

As excited as I am to bust out the bright colors this spring, I’m equally as psyched about sporting easy, breezy neutrals! Pajama dressing, as you’ve probably seen it called, was all over the spring runways. Think comfortable, fluid styles in ethereal hues. Look to the collections of Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren and Alexander Wang for beautiful examples of this look! My favorite online shopping haunt, Shopbop, also has some fabulous pieces that will help get you inspired to rock this look yourself!

This floaty frock from Modcloth is a bit more on the budget friendly side. It’s BonBon Deal of the Day worthy you might say!

    These look so soft and summery … my favorite is the Young Fabulous and Broke Cabana Tunic. Any of these outfits would feel like nothing more than a breath of fresh air against your skin! Hope you’re having a lovely week, Kristin and thanks so much for supporting Ooh La Frou Frou … much appreciated, darling!

    As much as I also love the bright colors, I am looking forward to the neutral trend as well! I must do some stocking up for once the weather gets better. Plus, with a nice tan, the nude will look amazing!!
