Moody Magenta

When I was in college I went through a phase where I refused to wear any bright colors. My wardrobe consisted only of neutrals and quite a bit of black. I'm not quite sure what prompted this self-imposed limitation, but I am glad to have gotten past it. While I am still drawn first to greys and blush tones, I have managed to overcome my aversion to color.

Urban Outfitters dress, Gryson bag, Seychelles booties, F21 earrings, Banana Republic gemstone ring

This magenta dress is the perfect combination of ladylike and playful with the silk ruffles and conservative neckline. The pattern adds a bit of texture to the ensemble and will pair well with black tights for the cooler weather.

Here's looking forward to fall.
