lust for lolly

I am the Queen of Basics.
My closet is literally filled to the brim with t-shirts and tank tops in every. single. color. imaginable.
To some, that may sound boring, but I like extreme wearability in my wardrobe, and find that basics allow that. Plus, they work amazingly well for layering and accessorizing - especially with scarves.

Scarves are one of my fashion fundamentals, but...I own less than seven {sad, I know}. Needless to say, my collection needs a little lot of growth, so of course I jumped at the chance to add a new one to my stockpile from LOLLY.

I crushed on Caroline; admired Alexandra; swooned over the suspense and mystery of Julianne; and, ultimately fell head over heels for Lorraine.


The bright aqua jade shade of Lorraine is insanely vibrant, but it is also incredibly wearable. I layered it over an eggplant-colored t-shirt a few days ago and the colorblocking vibe was so beyond glam.
Also pertinent...the color does amazing things for my green eyes.

Long story short...
I’ve been wrapped around a truly delicious book for the past few days; and sweet Lorraine has been wrapped snuggly around my neck for optimal warmthand coziness!

Stop by tomorrow for your chance to win Lorraine for your wardrobe, as well!

That is SUCH a gorgeous color! I think it's a shade that would look divine on anyone, whether you're blonde and blue-eyed or tan with raven hair!

I´m a real fan of scarfs, foulars, etc, in any season, so this one is perfect for the new season. I love yoir suggestions about how combine it, and I also can imagine it in a total white look, with silvered pumps!!

Basics are my favourites too. This scarf is so pretty. I definitely need more scarves in my life.

Ooh such a pretty color! I have a lot of scarves, but that's because they are mixed in with my mom's and sister's as well. We all get to share. :)
