It's not a secret that most of my outfits are comprised of mostly black, gray, beige, and maybe some white shades and hues. I rarely ever wear color—or bright ones, at that. However, I decided to end that streak with this Colorblock Crepe top from Banana Republic.
I was particularly excited to receive a box in the mail from Banana Republic, expecting a cozy sweater, fitted blazer, or some cool boyfriend jeans. But when I opened the box, these beautiful, bright colors jumped out at me and prompted me with an exciting challenge I couldn't turn down.
At first, I threw on some jeans with cuts at the knee and these Riley Fringe Sandals (below), which totally worked. But I was going out to Easter brunch, and since these colors were out of my comfort zone, I decided to stop playing it safe with a pair of jeans and throw on this spotted skirt. The outfit was chic, playful, and gave me a fresh breath of air from my go-to dreary and dark-colored ensembles.
As for these whimsical sandals, also from Banana Republic, I cannot wait to wear them with denim, which is making a huge come back this spring. I am always on the hunt for the perfect sandal that will go with everything, but I have a feeling that hunt won't be as hard this season!
It is always refreshing to have an open mind about something that you previously thought wasn't for you, for example: bright colors. You never really know what you can pull off, but as long as you are confident and have an optimistic outlook, you can rock anything. What are you afraid to pull off? What have you learned to love that you never thought you would? Let me know in the comment section below!
I'm wearing a size XL. This top runs true to size.
