Inspiring Style: Spring & Summer Colors

5/09/2012

Don't you just love how bright spring and summer colors are? It's hard to believe that I used to be an all-black kind of girl. I mean, black is beauty; black is bold; black is slimming; black is...easy.

Don't get me wrong. I totally still love black. But these days, I find myself eying the pretty pastels, minty greens and chic corals much more often than before. I'm smitten with color, and I don't give a damn who knows it!

I mean, have you seen my latest outfit posts? Clearly, I can't get enough of colorful lookbooks and neither should you. 

Find this first batch from Lulus to see what's new for spring!Spring colors Lulus
Next up are vibrant hues from Nastygal to fill your summer color cravings!Spring Summer colors Nastygal
From this list my inspiring style would have to be:
♥ Lulus ♥
Dessert Menu mint and brown satchel
Five Alarm coral pink shorts
Craft Fair cream button-up top

♥ Nastygal ♥
 Belted petal shorts in tangerine
Run Down skinny jeans in lilac
Liz floral romper

What are your spring & summer color picks?

Oh, and my new ring that just came in the mail yesterday: Wing-ing it!(They always show ring photos like this on Nastygal, but it's terribly difficult to recreate when you're the only one holding the camera)

  1. We agree, black is easy and it can also be boring. On the other hand bright colors are bold. Who wants to wear black on a cloudy day?
    Great finds, these are awesome.

  2. I love the pastel colours, those dresses are wonderful and I love the little polka dot bustier as well :) Sweet ring, very chic!! I admit, I wear a lot of black, and have been getting more colours in there as I've actually found stuff I like :)) x

  3. That ring is fly! You always have the cutest accessories! I think bright colors will always be in because people love to stand out. I love pastel girls. Personally, I've always been a "Think Pink!" Gal so I'm always rocking different shades of pink, I also like yellows.
