current obsession wednesday: pop of color!!!

it's another wednesday, folks...
which not only means that the week needs to either pick up or slow down for you,
it also means it's time for another current obsession wednesday!

this week i've totally been obsessing over
anything color.
well, i'm always obsessing over color.
i always have a pop of it somewhere in my wardrobe.
i can't be all black or gray or brown. if i am, then there is a pop of red in the shoes or a pop of purple in the purse. if no where in my wardrobe, i proudly wear it in my eyeshadow.

here are a few of colorful online finds - or some that i already possess that i love to incorporate in my outfits for those extra pops of colors.

anything from forever pretty much screams "pop of color."
i love their collection of affordable cardigans and accessories.

this skirt is just so fun and whimsical.
i'd totally wear it to liven up any boring outfit or day!

via piperlime
still wishing and dreaming for a pair of these.
i love the options for color - and hunter made the mark of still being fashionable and colorful on even the most grayest and stormiest days of the year with these hunter boots!

this etsy shop has been "hearted" by me for so long, i wonder why i haven't made a purchase. these rings recently popped up on the steppie's first page and i absolutely adore every single one. are they not adorable?!

no additional words are necessary for this story. other than these three:
to. die. for.

currently on the hunt for the perfect autumn beanie.
this one caught my eye - and this shop has a collection of beanie's in a variety of colors.
love it.

via modcloth
the colorful owl prints on this travel package makes me giddy. so cute and fun

via urban decay/sephora
my personal fave from this collection is peace, which is a very vibrant blue. it's super vibrant (no joke) - but it gave me that extra boost when i needed it for rainy or long days. it made boring office outfits more lively.

via modcloth
and yes i'm still on the hunt for the perfect pair of tights.
currently searching for purple, green and mustard yellow shades.

and who doesn't love ruffles and this shade of yellow?!
i can see myself wearing this with a plain tee or tanktop to add that pop of color.

and another personal fave is to add a pair of colorful accessories like...yup, nerd glasses!
i have a brown pair - and i borrow my sister's black pair sometimes.
and i have been forever on a hunt for a pair of RED nerd glasses and i finally found myself a perfect pair for me. i LOVE them so much.
what do you think?

hope you have a color-filled day, friend.

[happy wednesday!]

  17. That lovely pink skirt is perfect!

    One of my favorite outfits to "dress up" with color is a casual black dress - I'll add a bright pink shirt underneath and wear a posy pin from The Pleated Poppy - love it!
