These days, I'm reaching for anything but bright color. I don't have a specific reason or explanation why, I just seem to be enjoying a more neutral palette. I have a lot of labradorite jewelry, and I like wearing it with olive, grey, black, beige, and white. When I plan my outfits, I typically keep in mind what jewelry I'm going to wear and then dress accordingly. I know that may seem unusual! Most people keep the focal point on a pair of shoes or a great statement clothing item, but I like to pick out my jewelry and then have the rest of my look follow suit. Of course, this could change next week so I may contradict myself. I can't stop thinking about our upcoming Hawaii trip in the Summer, and I love wearing bold, vivid colors on the beach. Stella & Dot has some beautiful turquoise pieces right now so I'm waiting on an order. There's nothing prettier than a light tan and golden accessories to match the carefree feeling of Summer. I'm sure a lot of you are thinking about it too!


  1. I agree with planning a look around accessories. I plan mine around my makeup :)

    You look great as usual Noelle. Loving your moto jacket

  2. Great boots! Lovely look :)


  3. I love neutrals! Your taupe shoes, jacket, and bag look great with your black.

  4. I too love neutrals and I love that bag!

  5. I feel like my outfit planning strategy changes by the day or based on what's newest in my closet. So if I get a new necklace I plan around that, new shoes...same thing. :) And I'm a big believer in having a healthy collection of neutrals in your closet to get the most out of your wardrobe mix & match options. These pieces are all perfect examples and great staples. SO glad you got those booties and are getting good use out of them!
