Color Wheel of Shopping-April

Ever feel like you don't have enough variety of colors in your closet? Well here is your lucky day to help change that.
**all the highlighted words have a hyperlink connected to the site where you can buy them.**
Red: Elizabeth and James cotton T-shirt dress($245). This look is great for summer. Just throw on aviators and gladiators with a cute beach bag and your beach ready! A cheaper version(less cute but cheaper) of this  shirt is the Gap cuffed boyfriend tee.(*sale*$14.99) Order the Gap one bigger for length.

Orange:These great pair of Fendi leather zipper-pocket shorts(1,670) are great for anything really. You can dress them up or just wear them to a friends barbeque. I personally would wear them with a white shirt, long necklace, and sandals. A cheaper version of these shorts are Stella Mccartney's sunset cotton shorts($360)

Yellow: Great bold asymmetric leather motocross jacket by Emanuel Ungaro($1,905) Wear this with a white shirt and dark wash skinny jeans. A cheaper jacket is here.

Green: Balmain skinny cropped cargo pants($2,090), with a grey tee, leather jacket and boots. A cheaper version is these adorable j brand pants here.

Blue: A Mathew Williamson print trim bikini($275) is perfect for lounging by the pool in. It is adorable and paired with the right sun dress, wedges, bangles, and sunglasses it will be a show-stopper. A cheaper bikini is this amazing D&G bikini($160)

Indigo: An extremely cute bag that will go with anything is the platinum label leather satchel($398) by Badgley Mischka. I would wear it with a cute white dress, necklace, and heels. A cheaper version of this bag is the Badgley Mischka platinum label small crescent leather bag($145).

Violet(purple):One of my favorite colors. I also love shoes. So why don't put it together and have a great loca studded pair of pumps by Brian Atwood($800)! I would wear this outfit with a very sweet and girly cocktail dress. I don't think that there are a very similar pair of these shoes any cheaper but here are another great pair of shoes that are purple by Rock and Republic(who recently just filed for bankruptcy) Aria Platform Sandals.

Pink: A great pink accessory is a bright pink scarf. I found a great one by Virginia Johnson, shark print merino wool scarf($195) I would wear it with a graphic top, shorts and sandals. Another great pink scarf but is less expensive is j crews silk neon paisley scarf in pink.

Word of advice** Don't wear all the items together. It will look like a bright mess.


  1. The leather jacket is amazing!

    To reply your comment: When it comes to accessoires I'm pretty eccentric. Can't be enough! :D

  2. I love this post. It's such a great idea! I definitely have trouble varying my colors away from my few regulars. I love that yellow jacket. Ever since I gave away my yellow jacket a few years ago, I've bee needing a new one.
