Columns For Spring Fashion

I am a column. . .

They say you are what you think. Or is that you are what you eat?

Oh well which ever, today's look is all about column dressing where I wear all one colored top and bottom and then add a third piece in a different color. This is one of my favorite ways to dress because it always looks nice and it takes very little thought. I plan to style a white column and maybe a colored column here over the next few weeks just to play around with it. I just got the cutest white denim jacket that I can't wait to style and I think it will be cute on a colored column. 


For this look I am wearing 7 For All Mankind jeans with my DIY hem. I love this brand so much that I ordered a pair of black cropped raw hem for summer. I'm wearing a pretty sleeveless top that has a sheer overlay. I wish I had taken a closer picture of it although it is old it is a favorite. My third piece was a waffle knit cardigan in orange by Free People. Then I added my orange Tuckernuck earrings and tan wedge shoes. A neutral belt and tote completed this look. 

Its still gloomy here

But I keep acting like it's full on spring. What else are you gonna do?

I am staying really busy with work and home projects and I even got away for a day at the spa with my girl friends. I am sure I am going wake up soon to the sun shinning bright!

I am linking some of the same and other similar items in case you want to create your own look.

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!
