Well…a few weeks ago, I saw this image on Pinterest and an entire post was born.
Love. I am in in love with everything about this picture. I love the distressed jeans, the gold jewelry, the navy jacket, the bangles, the hair, the brown bag, the polka dot shirt and the pop of color with the yellow. One little pop of color and the entire outfit comes alive.
Today’s post is all about little pops…it doesn’t take much to turn basic into brilliant and boring into fabulous! I’m going to show you my favorite little pops of neon and bright colors for spring…from nail polish and tanks to bags and scarves…and more!
I’ve been looking everywhere for us some little pops…
…it’s amazing how simple it is to add a pop into your basic style.
I love wearing tanks under my tops. It adds an extra layer of interest to any look…and sometimes, a little pop of color. I found this bright tank at Old Navy and love it! In my opinion, Old Navy and Gap have the best tanks because they’re longer (perfect for layering) and wash and dry beautifully. Add a little pop with a bright tank…
Any of these tanks under a basic sweater or shirt will instantly add that fun pop of color.
And for the rest of the above outfit, click on the item name: Jeans, necklace, military jacket, sweater, leopard flats.
Goodness…nothing could be simpler than adding a bright pop of color to your nails to jazz you up a bit…
…I just found this image off of Pinterest…but geez…how happy do those colors make you? You know that I’m a nail polish junkie. And one of the reasons I am is because it’s amazing how a little polish can instantly elevate whatever you have on (even gym clothes!).
This is my own personal collection from my Fifty Two Shades of Shay: Nail Polish post :). Just a little pop of color on your toes and fingers and you’re good to go.
I was talking to Sheaffer about how I was looking for pops of color everywhere and she said I needed to look at Rebecca Minkoff’s new spring/summer bags at Nordstrom. Sheaffer, knowing what a color crazy person I am, said she knew the bright Minkoff bags would thrill me. And she was right. So right. I love them all!
Look at those fun colors! I love that there are not just totes but crossbody bags too. A great bag can be used every day and goes with everything…you will definitely pop with these babies! Here are a few of my faves…
Neon Pink Tote (in 7 other colors!), Minty Crossbody Bag (in 3 other colors), Orange Crossbody (in 2 other colors), Studded Tote
I know what you’re thinking? A bright pink bag, really? Yes. Whether you’re wearing shorts and a tank or your yoga clothes…a bright bag will instantly make you look a little more pulled together. Just look…
…seriously, what did we do before Pinterest? And Sheaffer?
Thank you Sheaffer for knowing exactly where I needed to look for fun colored bags…I love them all :).
The next place I’m poppin’…scarves.
Now that’s simple. We just need a few bright scarves to brighten up our basics. Here you go…
Hello floral fun!
This fun pink scarf is under $30 and available in 13 other colors!
And this turquoise infinity scarf just says happy.
Now…we have discussed this before. We have discussed it in great length actually…when I die, I would like to be buried in shorts. Not just any shorts, I would like to be buried in bright colored shorts (with tall wedges, an armful of bangles and beachy hair…but I digress).
I have probably discussed my love of J Crew shorts on this blog no less than 5,896 times. And with spring and summer just around the corner, you can go ahead and prepare yourself for 18,236 pictures of me wearing their bright colored shorts. They are my favorite. I love them. They’re wonderful. And they add just the right amount of pop to anything.
I love these shorts. I love them. I always wear the 3″ in-seam but it does come 4, 5, 7 and 9 inch too! No matter how old you are, how tall you are, how small you are…no matter what, if you need a pair of fun and bright colored shorts…these are my absolute favorites! And they come in so many great colors! Love, love, love these!
And my last pop…
…I just love a little pop of color in my earrings. Sigh. I love my blue earrings…
…and my green ones too. I pretty much wear them every day. Just that little pop and look how my two boring outfits are a little more interesting.
Little pops of color. I’m going to spend my weekend trying to find more ways to make my basics pop.
Speaking of popping…dinner tonight…
…like a Jalapeno Popper but in a yummy (and simple) casserole.
Happy Friday friends!
