neutral attraction

This is the typical convo I have with myself when shopping:
Jessica: "Ooh I like that tan sweater"
Jessica: "But I already have so many neutrals, I should get it in hot pink"
Jessica: "Great idea, let's get it"
Only to come home & realize that my closet looks like a My Little Pony puked on it... nary a neutral in sight...

So apparently I live under this illusion that I am a "neutral" person, true in my head, so not true in real life.

While trying to make outfits from neon yellow, cobalt blue, hot pink & cherry red is an exciting challenge, sometimes I just need a neutral to throw into the mix!

  1. I'm the same way. I look at my closet and pretty much all I see is colour. You really do need those whites, tans and beiges to make it complete!

  2. I have a similar mindset when I go shopping. I also think why spend money on a tan blouse if I can buy it in purple instead. Thus a closet with a lot of color and not a lot of neutrals! Loving those sandals!!

  3. Love Love Love that raglan sweater. I might need to blow my whole May budget and make that mine :)

    love that polka dot sweater! xo

  5. I love your picks! That necklace is especially lovely. I find neutrals hard to wear, somehow, but I still really love everything you've picked!

  6. Haha that is the exact conversation I have too. Rainbow Brite up in my closet lol.

  7. That first sweater is amazing!

  8. But hot pink is such a wonderful color....

  9. I'm all about neutrals- they go with everything! Those sandals are adorable!

  10. love, love that first sweater!!!

  11. I love neutrals. I have a feeling that if I bought that baseball sweater, I would wear it a majority of the week.


  12. Loving every bit of it. Gorgeous finds. Yesss, adding something colorful would be lovely...or just leaving it neutral. Cheers.

  13. That baseball tee is amahzing! And definitely add more neutrals, you never know when they'll come in handy!



  14. I'm obsessed with that J.Crew linen top- its slouchy perfection! I agree- you can never go wrong with neutrals.

  15. I really really want that baseball sweater!! i love it!!!

  16. I love that polka sweater but trying to hold off with shopping this month because I'm going to the NYC in June want to carry over my shopping money from this month. But so tempting! Stop posting all this cuteness that I just want to buy! lol

  17. I hear you lady! I'm going wedding dress shopping in NYC next month!!! But I have to share all these good finds so I don't scoop them up myself! xx

  18. Ok, OBSESSED with that baseball sweater! I am a color fanatic, too - sometimes I just feel like I need to tone it down! These pieces are perfect!

  19. Oooh I love that baseball tee! I've been learning the value of some good basic neutrals recently - especially tees/tanks. Then all you need to add is a lovely scarf or necklace! :)

  20. Loving #2 and #6!


  21. I have the exact opposite problem! I have WAYYY too many dark/neutral colors and that needs to change! I find I look best in bright warm colors such as pink, red, coral, and yellow. I have way too many blue, brown, and grey items!

  22. This made me chuckle because I'm the definitely looks like a My Little Pony threw up in my closet...and I'm always drawn to colors vs. neutrals! This is a great reminder to maybe stock up on neutrals....and a great excuse to shop :)
