The Color Of Lavender

How to describe a color

I seem to always think of a color through a true to life form. To me the color lavender is the color of the lavender that grows in my yard but also reminiscent of my lilacs. When I see lavender I can almost smell those scents.

Each season I gravitate toward a color that I call my color and center anything new I add around that color. I knew some time ago that lavender would be my spring and summer color this year. Strangely I had very little of this color in my closet. But there is always an upside! I get to search for the perfect pieces to add. This tunic just spoke to me when I saw it. It said, Cheryl, you know you are going to take me home. Ha ha!

Here I am linking up a beautiful Free People cardigan on sale, floral top, same jeans and same heels along with a cute bag.

But what do you wear with floral top?

Of course, my petal hem jeans, lavender heels and a straw clutch. For jewelry I wore my butterscotch amber necklace for a little contrast.

It was so fun that the only lavender thing already in my closet would work perfectly to complete a look. My Free People duster was purchased last year.  I l'm wearing 7 For All Mankind jeans, Sam Edelman sandals and a top by Zac and Rachel and my wicker clutch is Mary Sol.

I've linked more beautiful options for you to create your own look!

Thanks for stopping by!
