Bright idea: denim shift dress, skinny jeans, espadrilles, and striped hobo bag

Between my denim tunic, skinny jeans, and black espadrilles, there really isn’t a whole lot of colour going on in this sweet ensemble of mine…but when I opted to add a punchy tote to the mix??  Suddenly, it was like – whoa, nelly!!

I’ll be honest – it’s a challenge to style truly “summery” looks when the weather refuses to play along; especially for a girl like me who prefers a palette of black, white, and neutrals for most of the year as it is.

Not that neutrals can’t a summer outfit make; my tube skirt and t-shirt combo from last week is a study in varying shades of beige…but totally season-appropriate (although I do admit to using a bag to add a pop of colour there as well!!)

Still, I’m sure most of us will agree that summertime truly is the perfect time to add some brighter looks to our wardrobe repertoires; so I’m glad I ignored my initial impulse to stay “in neutral” today…and went with something a bit more vibrant instead!!

    I like this look! Very nice tunic! I think it is also great for fall, with a legging and boots.
