Spring Sensibility

Ok. Ok. So, it is still cold outside. But, one sure way to shake off the winter blues is by embracing the fresh colors of spring. I have been excited about this spring too because according to Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2009, some of my favorite colors are going to be widely available.

Today’s casual look features a salmon colored ruched tank paired with a classic v-neck cardigan in the freshest shade of blue, a color the Gap is calling ‘autumn sky.’ The tops are worn with dark rinse wide leg denim trousers. Orange leather flats and a burgundy pleated leather bag add chic finishing touches.

Tank—Tahari via Marshalls
Pants—Banana Republic Factory Store
Shoes—MICHAEL Michael Kors via Macy’s
Bag—Francesco Biasia via eBay

P.S. Thanks so much for continuing to stop by and for your comments/emails of concern. I am hoping to get back to my regular posting routine very shortly. Much love and style (on a budget of course).
