All About Neutrals

This wrap sweater is a bit challenging to wear, but it worked really well with this collared dress, because the collar fills in the gap at the neckline where my bust does not. I decided to mix several shades of plum for the bottom portion of the outfit, since the dark brown and gray would otherwise have looked too drab. Though I'm resisting the pale spring shades with all my might, I do think it's time to start bringing more color into my daily wear again, since this winter has been all about neutrals and dark shades.

Dress: Red Dress Shoppe

I love how the shades of fuschia and plum really pull out the blue-green undertones of that gray dress. And that wrap sweater looks so cozy!

What a great way to style a deep-v wrap sweater.

Bringing in some colour was definitely a great idea! I prefer dark colours as well, if I wanted to go for the pastels of this season, I would have to do a huge shopping!

I love that sweater! Seems like it would go so well over simple dresses.

Yes, there must be a way to bring color into a wardrobe without inviting pastels in at the same time.
