Look! I am one of the Spice Girls! 😉
I know you saw my neutral look last week, but I couldn’t resist these pieces from Soft Surroundings. When I was contacted, I knew I wanted some spice tones to add to my closet. I love a Safari look as well, wrote about these colors and trends in the post- Spring Trends 2019. Today, I am sharing two looks from Soft Surroundings, pieces that I see me styling throughout the Spring-Summer months. Don’t worry, color will return next week. .. 🙂
My Outfit #1
I was excited to hear that Spicy tones- rust, burnt orange, reds, mustards, and the like, were going to be in stores as part of the Pantone Colors of the Year and as a trend ( on the runway).
When I saw this Samar rust-cognac blouse, with tie detail at the sleeve, and tortoise buttons down the front, I was in love! I was envisioning this paired with different jeans, skirts etc for the warmer months. This yard dyed twill blouse is light and airy feeling. I told you I was loving neutral shades too and having a closet of many colors, I wanted to add these versatile pieces. I have been on the hunt for olive paper bag waist pants for the Spring/Summer, and they would look awesome with this too.
I like the contrast of this cognac blouse with white denim and added a skinny leopard belt for more pattern.
The shoes, how cool are they? Many styles are being shown with architectural heels- geometric styles, with a different shape. I loved this dark wood, egg-shaped heel by Antelope for its modern look. The distressed taupe leather strappy sandal would be perfect with so many neutral looks in my closet and I loved the beaded coppery strap at the front as well. They are beyond comfortable!
For added print and texture, I am carrying my Express Leopard clutch. I also could have added the woven straw bag that you have seen me carry last summer- and I chose to add it to the second look here.
The second look is the Malindi Tencel Shirt Dress with 3/4 sleeves in the shade, Safari. Now, where is my straw hat and sunglasses? Tencel Lyocell is so soft and easy to wear, and as a shirt dress style, this dress can be styled in many ways. This dress, as all of my tops and dresses from Soft Surroundings, is an XS, and has a roomy fit. I could wear a belt with it, or leave it more relaxed, as it is. I love the Safari color I am wearing, but it also comes in a Silver Sage, or sage green color. I could see that color looking amazing on ladies with silver or grey hair too.
I bought this gorgeous snakeskin scarf from Mango, as I am looking to add more neck scarves to my closet. They are a great choice instead of a necklace in the hotter months.
These gold tortoise earrings are large and make a statement, and I love with them my long hair. These are sold out, but I love these other styles as well with this look. These resin tortoise hoop earrings have a classic vibe and will go with anything! These brass palm leaf earrings would look great with many of the Safari looks for Spring as well.
