 Today I am all about contrasts. I have been in love with the pink and green combination for a while, so this morning, when I was debating which shoe to pair with this outfit, the pale pink pumps were the first one that caught my eyes. The emerald green contrasts with the pink while pulling in the colors of the floral print simultaneously.

I am also wearing these Rocksbox earrings I have been loving lately. Those who have heard about it but  are not sold on it yet, or those who have no idea what this is all about, here is the general rub for you : It is a subscription based curated box for jewelry lovers. Once you sign up for a small monthly membership fee, you get to pick many items in your wish list, and a stylist from Rockbox will hand curate a box of three items for you and mail it. If you like what you get, you get to keep them for a discounted insider only price, if you dont like your box, simply mail it back and they will send you a new box of new items catered to you, every time you return one. I have worn the two necklaces I got here and here. I am still in love with these pieces, but I am sure one or two of them will likely go back. What is in it for you? Well, you my dear reader get to try out this subscription for a month FREE because you are awesome and you read this blog! While signing up, use the code  “willfullyelegantxoxo ” at checkout for your first free month. Give it a shot, if you like it stay else cancel your membership. Simple.I hope you do sign up and if you do, I would love to see the pieces you got!!

Have a great rest of the week ahead. Stay well and cheers. Gentle reminder – Beauty in Bloom is this week in Milwaukee. So be sure to get your tickets if you are in town and come to the Milwaukee Art Museum, you will not regret it. I will be in the fashion blogger panel on March 28th, starting at 3 pm.

 This weekend I pulled all my girly girl stuff to make myself feel better about spring rather than mop over the miserable “spring” weather we have been actually having this past week. Of course that only means pulling out all my prettiest shades of pinks. Leather and lace have been a combination I have been quite interested in trying out, so I had to snag this blouse when Ann Taylor was having their 60% off sale on sale. I mean, you do not mess and miss with opportunities like that. The lace is well made and not at all as flimsy as I was fearful it might turn out to be. The collar and sleeve cuffs are leather, so it adds the subtle edginess with the femininity of the lace.

One of the other things I have been obsessing over is this bracelet. I have rather narrow wrists so, its very hard for me to find bracelets that fit it right without feeling like the bracelet owns me. Its available in gold and silver tones and I am very tempted to get the silver version as well. Its heavy enough to hold its weight without the twisted side flipping downwards. I have worn this to work, and casually and have gotten tons of complements. It is a beautiful piece to add to any collection, whether you are a jewelry aficionado or a once in a while indulger like me.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and have a good week ahead. Stay well and cheers.

Apparently there is a term I wasn’t aware of until recently. But now thanks to Instagram and all that comes with it, Friday apparently in IG world is Fri-YAY!? ( eye-roll) Cute much(?), meh depends on who you ask. Don’t ask me, you know my stand now. Anyways, as of today Spring is supposed to be here. I lost sight of that as of last week, mid-week. So not to mention, I am annoyed that its still cold ( not too bad, but nevertheless cold). When sun pops out, its beautiful but without that, it pretty cloudy and blah. I sound like such a debbie downer for a friday! I need more coffee which I am not able to consume.

One of the things I also noticed is that, weekly, I tend to gravitate towards a certain color! Orange ( or versions of it) is the color of this week, clearly! The first post here, and then this and then today. I am soon running out of options in my closet, and I am partially petrified of maternity clothes shopping because I need to start from scratch and it’s an unknown territory as of yet, so I am trying my best to come up with creative ways to work with pieces I own that can still work on me with some degree of comfort. I have found some good resources online ( Destination Maternity, ASOS Maternity, Loft , Target and Amazon) for maternity clothing shopping, but I am yet to delve into any with any amount of certainty. This is where I need your help, if you know of other retailers, who offer moderately cute/interesting maternity pieces please do share,I would like to have more options available. But from what I understand, 2 pants, 2/3 skirts and a about 4/5 tops/blouses that stretch through the period remaining should suffice, so I am heavily relying on my creativity in the next few months.

Hope you all have a great Friyay Friday! Stay well and cheers!!

So this past weekend, the weather went ballistic, I mean fantastic. It was the perfect spring weather and we made the most of it. It is amazing how this city blossoms with temperature and sunshine. It was the perfect time to pull out the maxi skirts and lace-y tops. This outfit is very much inspired by Sarah Hylands 2014 Emmy award outfit. This is my version of #pinneditspinnedit, that seems to be raging on instagram these days. My version is way more modest than the glamorous version Sarah presented, but that is how I imitate glamour world into my wardrobe. The white version of this gorgeous layering top is sold out, but the black version is on major sale. You will find below many more similar ( some less at $20) pleated orange skirts.
