One of the things you guys told me when I did my two year anniversary reader survey was that outfit posts are hands-down your favorites. So, in the interest of giving you all what you want, here’s a bonus Wednesday outfit post!

For the month of April there’s still a Pinterest inspiration challenge going on and I’m planning to use Wednesdays as my weekly participation.

Which is why today you’re getting such bold colors. Because here’s the original inspiration from Nu Sophisticate:

Instead of the powder pink color I went with the more saturated fuchsia. And instead of those adorable sandals she’s wearing I just stuck with closed-toe nude pumps. Overall, though, I’m pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the fuchsia and green together.

Also, thank god for spell-check. I can’t spell fuchsia to save my life.

I’ve worn these green pants quite a bit but haven’t really paired them with much color. Now I’m thinking that needs to change! Cobalt blue, anyone?

P.S. Who else is excited that it’s warm enough to wear ankle pants again?? Unless you work somewhere that doesn’t allow ankle pants. Which I personally think is some out-dated thinking.

    Love the color combination and will definitely try it myself. I have worn green and pink together, but I think the fuchsia is much more sophisticated. (Seeing you in the green pants reminds me that I haven’t fulfilled that wish list item yet.)

    Wow, I’ve apparently been spelling fuchsia wrong for years (I thought it was “fuschia” – I mean, doesn’t that seem like how it should be spelled?).

    I love this color-blocking! It’s so perfect for spring. And it’s interesting that you wore this after wearing an all black and white outfit – total opposites.
