Bold & Bright - Among Other Things (The Blog)

Bold & Bright

The temperature is rising and the sun is shining, which means it’s finally time to embrace bright, bold and playful color palettes.


… Oh, and I’ve been able to unearth some of my clothing (and shoes, more importantly) from boxes. So, yay!


I’m all about embracing the color spectrum and I love to play with slightly off-beat color combinations — especially as a refreshing replacement for more casual summer basics.

It doesn’t get much easier orbreezier than a cotton maxi skirt (all the better for impromptu twirling). I’m partial to pretty pleats or a sweet side-slit –especially when paired with a striped shirt and caged heels for an unexpected ensemble.

Here’s hoping Chicago can find some cheerful consistency weather-wise, but for now, a pretty pop of pink will do.
