Florals are a big thing this summer so this is one way to incorporate some of that style but using your already owned items such as your navy blazer & purse. The key with the floral look is to have one floral piece & keep the rest of your outfit simple. ~ Andrea.
This is what I'm wearing today: Loft navy with white pattern shirt dress. Shirt dresses are great as they are suitable for most occasions from the weekends through to work, are super comfy, & come in every color & pattern imaginable. The best length is knee or just above the knee and make sure to belt it to make it look more polished. This particular shirt dress comes with its own belt but if not throw on a skinny belt that goes with your shoes. Because navy is a great neutral you could pair this dress with many different color shoes & bag; I've gone for a subtle look with taupe shoes & bag & chestnut brown earrings & bracelet. ~ Andrea.

This is one of those Spring looks that just never seems to date: navy linen pants with a navy & ivory stripe top. Keep the stripes on the top half to balance you out & pair with comfortable taupe wedges. The taupe hat keeps the sun off your face during the day & the ivory shawl is for when the temperature drops in the evening. Finish off with a taupe bag, navy jewelry & a pair of oh so awesome animal print sunglasses! ~ Andrea.
When most of us think of a go to neutral color (that one that goes with everything else) most of us think of black. Occasionally, we may even opt for gray, but that is just a watered down version of black.
There are other neutral colors we can use to break free from wearing a lot of black. Don't get us wrong, black is a great go to shade, but sometimes it's good to change things up & add some other interesting colors into our closets.
Navy: Almost as classic as black but just that bit softer. A great color for pants, tops, blazers, hats, bags... This really is a color that goes with almost any other color. Keep it simple by pairing with white, ivory, beige or light blue or liven it up with a pop of red, bright pink, or turquoise.
Taupe: This color is basically a cross between beige & gray. This is a great neutral because the beige & gray tones means it goes with almost any color. Taupe works better than a pure beige, as the gray undertones stop it looking too yellow or pink, which beige sometimes can. It makes a great lighter colored, neutral option, as the Spring weather arrives.
Dark olive green: This shade is often forgotten about, but it also goes with a great deal of many other colors, such as, white, ivory, beige, taupe, brown, burnt orange, light blue, light pink & yellow. If you're not sure about how this color works next to your face use it in your pants, bag or shoes, such as we have in the picture here, where we have olive cords.
