A Touch of Lilac

27 January 2013

Hello All! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. We received a few inches of snow this weekend but it did not stop me from getting out to take a few pics. I layered a gingham shirt in lilac with a v-neck sweater in soft peach.  I originally wanted to combine the gingham with a navy sweater but decided on the peach instead.

 I must say, i'm loving this color combo! The colors are so soft and feminine. The colors scream Spring, which I so desperately want to be here now!! I just scored this gingham shirt from J Crew at an awesome price. They are currently running an additional 50%  off on final sale items in their store. In addition, I was able to use my 15%  teacher's discount, score!! It's such a  simple outfit, perfect for work (my job has a very casual dress code) or for running errands on the weekend.
