THT- Lilac Is a Favorite Color This Spring- Casual Styling

 

Styling Lilac for Summer

Styling lilac for Spring and Summer was on the horizon. I love these soft shades and lilac comes back after being popular last summer as well.

You certainly can style lilac with neutrals- white, black , tan, navy. Or go for a monochromatic look as well, there are many trouser looks with this color in stores now.

I kept it simple with white Mom’s jeans and a pair of lilac sandals from Tarshay. These Mom jeans from Mott & Bow, are one of my favorite pairs. They have a little stretch, and I love the high rise. They are a bit cropped and show of those shoes!

The pin dot textured look and of course flouncy romantic detail . This Zara blouse was a steal on Poshmark for me, and it came new with tags.  I found this short sleeve lilac blouse on Mango which also has beautiful detail.

Lilac is another shade ( I mentioned coral) that looks wonderful with nearly every skin tone.  If you have darker skin or are someone who has a warmer tone to their fair or light skin, lilac will  be lovely. If you have a cooler skin tone, try wearing lilac as a bottom or as an accessory. There are so many darling sandals and heels out there to choose from or these type of trousers would make a fashionable statement.

Happenings

Well, we had a great time over the weekend at my brother’s new house, 10 minutes away. The pool was ready- sparkling and filled with large inflated animals which took up 1/3 of the pool! I shared in yesterday’s post, the floaty that hubby and I lounged in. So nice! My brother cooked chicken and burgers on the grill , with all of the yummy fixings. I made my Strawberry- Walnut – Goat cheese salad and it was a hit! If you want the recipe, see yesterday’s post.

We tried, with lifejackets, to see if the pups would swim in the pool.  They were not fans! I don’t think shih tzus gravitate toward water!

It was just a fun weekend with family and we enjoyed sitting outside, swimming, chatting, the whole time.

Have you added any lilac to your closet this Spring?

    I’ve always loved shades of lilac, but the only thing I have in my wardrobe is a pair of jeans and they’re not terribly comfortable so I hardly ever wear them! You look fabulous, Jess.
    And your weekend with your brother sounded like so much fun!

    You always have such an eye for textures, and the eyelet top and braided sandals work together so well! BTW those sandals are so stinking cute!

    Jess, it sounds like you had a marvelous weekend with your family and I do so adore your style and fashion choices. You look fabulous in lilac, although I’m not so sure that it’s a universally flattering color for everyone. That doesn’t mean that it can’t be worked into an outfit in small doses like your slides or the cute crossbody purse I picked up a month or so ago.

    Love the cool dotted Swiss fabric and sweet feminine details on your blouse-and of course the gorgeous color! Lilac is a bit of an unsung hero in the color world, that really looks pretty on so most people. Sounds like you had the perfect holiday weekend-thanks for sharing!
