Last week, we discussed the color of the year, Ultra Violet. This week I’m wearing a slightly different and personally more flattering shade of violet, more of a fuchsia, or for those who follow color trends … more of a “Radiant Orchid” or “Spring Crocus.”
This month we’re ready for spring fun in our gingham!
Here’s my casual take on the gingham trend. This Loft purple gingham shirt is a favorite of mine. You might recognize it from my blog banner. (Who says bloggers never wear the same thing twice?) And I wanted to add this colorful vintage scarf that was my mom’s into the mix. I love the way it looks tied to my Lilly tote.
The hamsa image is showing up on tshirts and jewelry all over the place. This ancient symbol has been used for centuries as protection against the evil eye in the Middle East and parts of Africa. The vibe of this amulet fits right in with the bohemian aestetic so on trend right now.
Last weekend my husband took me to see Rain, a Beatles tribute band. I thought something a bit psychedelic was in order, so I wore my Free People sweater coat. It’s an old favorite … seen in this Feb 2014 post.

My husband got into the spirit and wore this rainbow Robert Graham shirt. Doesn’t he look handsome?
The show was great and we had a blast!
Wouldn’t Rebecca of Red Tag Chic Los Angeles fit right in with our boho vibe? Loving this Stevie Nicks inspired ensemble she shared with us last week!
And I’m positive Steve Nicks would also approve of this magical look from Andrea of Boho Bunnie!
How lovely is Annette of Lady of Style in this pretty blue tunic?
And Glenda of So What to Twenty is looking like walking sunshine in this beautiful yellow dress!
Thanks so much everyone for linking up last week! I’m so happy to say that Fun Fashion Friday is growing every week! Have fun linking up, please link back, and be sure to visit and comment on some other blogs so we can all feel the LOVE!
I felt a bit like Goldilocks recently looking for a chambray shirt. The shirt was either too big, too small, too dark, too light, too short, too stiff, or too boxy. So this middle-aged Goldilocks was thrilled to finally find this shirt that was just right! It’s Cloth and Stone (an Anthropologie brand) and I found it at Crossroads Trading, a store with new and gently used clothing to buy, sell, or trade.
It was the perfect color and length for me and so soft too. Isn’t the back detail cute?

Here are a few of my favorite Valentine’s Day inspired looks from last week …
Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust is looking hip and chic in her plaid sweatshirt and leather skirt.
Alice of Happiness at Mid-life is a feminine romantic vision in pretty polka dots.
How adorable is Chioma of Chioma’s Evolution of Style in her Barbie pink skirt and denim jacket?
