Coral, Navy, and Neutral, Oh My!

Blouse c/o Conversation Pieces | Skirt: Anthropologie | Shoes: Zara | Bracelets: T+J Designs, INPink, Francesca’s | Watch: Target

There’s just want too many favorites in this outfit and it has me squealing with delight just looking at it.  A polka dot necktie blouse, a chevron pattern on the skirt (which I got on major sale at Anthro, score!), low heeled sandals with a punch of color, and the parties my arms are having… all topped off with a neat “blogger messy bun”.  (Thanks to Much Love, Illy for agreeing to have a Skype date with me to show me how to do the bun, that’s what blog besties are for!  I need to be less OCD about having it so neat…)  Anyways, I absolutely LOVE the combination of corals/pinks contrasted with navy and a sprinkle of neutral, then topped off with some mint accessories to add some more color.  And since I’m in a topping things off kinda mood, all I need now is a white chocolate brownie topped off with vanilla ice cream a la mode.  :)

What are your favorite colors this Spring?


  1. Very possibly my favorite outfit of yours ever. No, make that my FAVORITE outfit of yours ever. Classic color combination, darling blouse and your hair up is perfect! xo – g

  2. SANDY!!! Oh you look so fabulous… I mean, when don’t you? I really love this look. I was eyeing that Anthro skirt. Such a good deal, but I’m holding off.. I want the Minutiae Drop Waist dress (polka dot verision), badly. I NEED it. hahaha. And those Zara heels are super sweet as well. I want the silver version. Zara is totally bangin’ it out with the goodness this season. I WANT everything!! Oh gosh.. I’m so crazy. I seriously need to stop shopping and start sewing things for myself. Gotta use my skillz, right?

    Anyhoo, I hope you are doing great… and baby Austin too… and the hubbs too!!! Miss you, babe.

    xx Love & Aloha

  3. I love this outfit, Sandy!! I can totally see why this outfit makes you excited. You look gorgeous, and the color combination is brilliant! I love the chevron pattern on the skirt and that adorable top.

  4. Loving the outfit and the bun isn’t messy at all. I am most drawn to that watch! I have a Fossil rose gold watch that I bought online. It’s just too big though. Yours looks like perfect size for me.

  5. sandy! this is SO adorable and SO you. Classy with a little spunk. My trick for doing the messy bun? Do it without looking the mirror. Sometimes this helps me– don’t know why :) xox

  6. I am really enjoying these outfit posts since you’ve had the baby! Since I started following you late into your pregnancy this is a lot different than before. The blouse is pretty Sandy and I hope you get those coral shoes.

  7. Is there an art to the blogger bun look? I haven’t been able to get it to work for me, but I am also terrible about doing my hair (actually wrote about that today, ha!)…maybe I need bangs! And that coral top is just over the top cute!

  8. Hey!!!! It’s that skirt from Anthropologie!! I remember it. Very cool. Did the pleats stay in?

  9. I adore your outfit! Its such a classically retro combo, but that skirt made me look again – love it. :)

  10. GREAT PICS:) I really like your blog and will happily follow…If you want som swedish inspiration you can check out my blog:) I wish you a very lovely weekend:)

    LOVE Maria at

  11. Loving the Skirt!! the detailing near the bottom is gorgeous. How FAB is Anthropologie!! :)

  12. What a pretty color combination–I love the coral and navy together! And the tiny dot pattern on that blouse is adorable!
