Dash of Color Lookbook




Zara Jacket and Tulip Skirt  |  Topshop Fringe Top  | Pour La Victoire Irina Nude Pumps  |

t+j Designs Turquoise Ring and Stainless Steel Crystal Stone Bracelets  (to launch Oct.)

Our Chicago weather went back to the 70’s, so I pulled out some color to brighten up the day.  I purchased the jacket a couple of years ago at Zara; it’s a linen swing jacket that is great for layering.  The Zara skirt is one of my favorite purchases from this summer and I’ve also worn it here.  I recently purchased the Topshop Fringe top, however I couldn’t find it online.  The detail of the fringe makes it a fun to wear day into night.  

I actually started my outfit with my t+j Designs bracelets; we have a wide range of bracelets to launch and I am in love with the way these turned out.  The colors are amazing, they look great alone or stacked as I have them and so wearable for all seasons.  We thought they would be great holiday gifts for others or for yourself :).  When I glanced at my jewelry box and saw the pop of colors, I went with the dash of color outfit.  I’ve been wearing a lot of black and darker colors so it was nice to bring back the brights for a day.

I have such great supporters and readers and wanted to say thank you for the interview and awards.  So sweet and I am very grateful!
