It’s Spring Break! The mister and I will be heading off to Nashville, so there will be a bit of a break in our regular programming (“What regular programming? You never blog consistently!” -You).
In the meantime, here are a few extra pics from the Nordstrom event that were hiding on Jill’s camera.
More info on our outfits here and here.
During our marathon shopping sesh after, Jill found this purse at Charming Charlie that matched my nails. I acheived this look with a base layer of Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine in Spark (which looks purple in the bottle but dries navy) and about eight layers of Milani Nail Lacquer in Gems. Yes, it took forever to remove!
This was from the Friday before St. Patrick’s Day. I knew I wanted to wear some green, but not in the typical way. And I also wanted to keep the weird color combo theme going.
I pulled this old scarf out of retirement for the green, and paired it with this oatmeal/oxblood sweater. Green and burgundy isn’t anything Earth shattering, but the colorful bangles add some unexpected brights.
The day I (well, we) bought these lavender jeans, I spotted a gorgeous lavender and coral necklace at J Crew and knew I wanted to pair the pants with this coral blouse. The blouse is quite over-sized, so I tamed it with this tailored jacket.
The earrings match the pants, but the random introduction of mint makes them less matchy-matchy.

Week two of Theme Weeks! The theme originated as “Anything BUT Black or White” playing against the big Black and White trend for Spring. But I think my version evolved into Kooky Color Combos.
Here, we have that highlighter pink sweater with which I started by pairing with these wine pants. I played with a few necklace options and dug up this oldie-but-goodie. I liked how it didn’t exactly match, but very much played off the dark pants. The necklace lead to the orange pumps (one of very few pointed toes that were saved from 6 years ago!), which lead to the pink and orange tank. It’s kind of insane, but works at the same time.

Let’s take a look back on our first theme week. Here were my official outfits:
Check out Jill’s even more insane Trifectas here. And how about an homage to some previous looks that just happened to mix prints?
Were you inspired to mix prints this week? Do you do it all the time anyway? Do you think this is terrible and that we are insane? Let me know!
Stay tuned for next week’s theme…
What a better way to end the week than with a Trifecta? I brought this scarf home and realized it just happened to have all the same colors are this jacket. Both have insane colors and patterns, but it works because the color palate is identical. The black on black texture pattern of the tee is also crazy, but I treated it like a plain black tee.
