{style inspiration: spring's sexy brights}













. . . absurdly in love with spring's vibrant hues -- lips in shades of coral & cerise and belted dresses in riotous purple, frolicsome jumpsuits in shimmery turquoise and flirtatious dresses in peach and long skirts paired with tangerine -- such a wildly welcome change from winter's grey days and suddenly, the air feels electric . . .

I am absolutely smitten by this bright and cheerful post! I agree so much that all of this colour such nice change to the dark winter... and I'm in love with the gorgeous balance in makeup here! The faces are just so bright and fresh with very simple and minimal eye makeup paired with the brighter varied shades of lips.

Completely inspired again thanks to this gorgeous post, and ready to be awakened by all the bright happy colours of Spring! :)

Well said, Roséline!

These colors are so vivid and refreshing, indeed... I really enjoy the bright lips, but fear with my red hair, it might be too much? Not sure, but I would definitely work some brights into my outfit, as you have shown. Thank you for the inspiration. Wearing black today will be impossible :)

Have a great Monday,

This is AAAMMAZING! We love the coral lip color too! In fact we were just at an event with Whitney Port who said that it was one of her top favorite trends for spring. She also shared with us her favorite BUDGET BEAUTY tip!!

Love your site!
