Stepping Out of My Color Comfort Zone

Happy Monday, team! I usually have a little bit of the Sunday scaries as I think of my week ahead, but with this being a holiday week, I have a feeling things will be a bit slower at work, so I’m really easing right into things. I’ve also been out of town the last three weekends, and since I’m in town for a solid seven days, this time at home also feels like a breather. I head to LA a week from today—the first part of my trip is work-related, but then I took a few days of PTO to enjoy the city since I haven’t ever really spent much time there. I’m spending one night in Santa Monica and one night in West Hollywood—would love any and all recommendations you might have!

I’m keeping things low key for July 4—will probably sleep in, go to a Soul Cycle class, and enjoy the fireworks from my rooftop. I plan to spend a lot of time blogging this week, and in addition to recapping my Quebec City trip, I am so excited to share about my trip to The Homestead this weekend with Monica. We had the best girls’ trip, and I soooo loved my time at their beautiful pool. Right now, I don’t have a beach trip scheduled this summer, so it was nice to enjoy cocktails by their beautiful lazy river and embrace a relaxation vibe. More to come!

I’ve been in a ~mood about my closet lately—I don’t love everything in it and have really been looking for pieces that make me feel confident that are also versatile. I bought this Loft yellow shaw (similar here, here, here) on a whim, and it has quickly become one of my favorite pieces in my closet.

I usually avoid yellow at all costs—I’m pretty pale, and find the lighter yellows really wash me out. And, if you’ve followed here for a while, you know I have a penchant for black, navy, or really neutral looks—I don’t think I’ve ever worn yellow before this in real life, let alone on the blog! But the bright floral pattern on this one is stunning—and adds both the perfect pop of color to my all black work outfits and pairs well with white jeans and colorful tops for weekend brunches and dinners with girl friends. It’s sold out right now, but I will alert you the second I find it back in stock!

PS—this cami has long been a staple in my wardrobe. You can see it make its debut on the blog in this throwback.

    Great idea to do Soul on the 4th–you just inspired me to do the same thing!

  2. Yay! I love this pop of color. You look awesome. Yellow seems to be a big color this summer-i’ve been seeing it everywhere!
