The first day of Spring is here, and I cannot think of anything more perfect to wear than this coral top!  I am a big fan of wearing dark colors and lots of black, but this spring and summer I am going to try really hard to add more fun and bright colors.  This Vince Camuto top is making that goal really easy!  It comes in an array of bright colors, I had a hard time only buying it in one.  The yellow and hot pink came in very close runner-ups, but I just fell too much in love with this shade of coral/pomegranate.   I’m really excited for my little color challenge I am giving myself.  I am always drawn to the black and dark version of clothes, so I think this will probably be harder for me than it sounds right now.  But I am very excited to add a little more color to my closet! Happy Friday and most important Happy First Day of Spring!

Some days you just want to wear a plain white tee and jeans.  But because I am me, I can’t just wear a plain white tee.  I have to glam it up a bit.  Enter gorgeous statement necklace.  Maybe it’s my Texas and southern roots, but I just cannot leave the house without my hair and makeup done and a little jewelry on.  On lazy weekends,  I love to mix fancy and casual pieces together.  I mean I know I may just be going to the grocery store, and will probably see no one I know, but I still like feeling put together.    This Perry Street statement necklace from my Rocksbox subscription was the perfect fit for my lazy fancy look over the weekend.   I’m currently obsessed with all things v-neck, especially these $5 tees from H&M.  Mostly because they are v-neck, but also I mean they are $5 and come in an array of colors!  The angle of the necklace fits perfect with a v-neck and the bold blue and gold in the necklace standout perfectly next to the white.  I may just be buying groceries, but I’m going to look darn cute while doing it!

I just sent my first Rocksbox back, and cannot wait for my second to come in the mail!  I decided to try out the request feature, and asked for a necklace with no color.  I can’t wait to see what arrives!  If you want to learn more about Rocksbox, head to my post last week.  Don’t forget to use promo code LADYINVIOLETXOXO to get your FIRST MONTH FREE on Rocksbox.  After your first month, if you still love it, the monthly cost is only $19!

Hope you have your green ready, because St. Patrick’s Day is upon us!  I love seeing what shade of green everyone wears on this day.  Even in my closet I have mint, teal, hunter, olive and regular old green.  It kind of reminds me of when you open a giant crayon box and see the array of shades for each color.  I originally bought the mint dress from last week’s post for St. Patrick’s Day, but since that was promoted to Easter, I needed a backup plan.  I am a huge fan of Pleione tops, because they are so amazingly comfortable and even better, affordably priced. (This top is only $39!)  I love the geometric print on this one!  Since the top was full of circles, I decided to pair with my rectangular and straight-lined gold jewelry.  I thought the change in shape would help the necklaces stand apart from the very busy top. Since St. Patrick’s Day is a work day for me, I went with my new skinny work pants to help balance the fullness of the top.  This outfit could easily transition to nighttime festivities by adding skinny jeans in a darker blue and some nude pumps!  Hope everyone has a fun and safe St. Patrick’s Day!

Earlier this week, I mentioned the Thrive Blog Conference I recently attended to learn more about blogging.  The opening speaker of the event was Ashley LeMieux of The Shine Project.  My favorite thing about Ashley is that she saw a problem and was determined to help no matter how big or small.  The Shine Project employs at risk inner city youth to help give them hope for a brighter future.  Ashley taught herself how to make the jewelry that she would sell to help high school students in the area.  As her business grew so did the number of kids she was impacting. She currently employs college students to help make the jewelry so they can pay for school.  She believes in them and their futures, and works hard to give them hope that they can have a bright and beautiful tomorrow.  She continues to spread the companies message and jewelry line in hopes of helping more high school students reach their dreams of attending college through the The Shine Scholarship Project and to become the future leaders of tomorrow.  She has such an amazing and positive attitude, and it was very refreshing to listen and be inspired to put good back into our crazy little world.  During a break, I headed back to her booth where she was selling some of the jewelry.  Honestly, I had no idea what the jewelry was or would look like, for some reason in my head while she was speaking I started picturing little friendship bracelets or something like that.  I was blown away by how beautiful and professional the jewelry looked! Staring back at me was gorgeous silver and gold jewelry at an affordable price!  I decided to pick up the full silver bracelet to add to my arm stack for the day.  They also have other stone and glitter colors to suit anyone’s favorite color.  She also had some really cool necklaces displayed, and I’m really liking this silver layered set!  It’s true what they say, one person really can change the world.
