While I love bold colors, I tend to use them fairly conservatively by pairing them with neutrals. Lately, though, I've had the urge to mash up bright hues to create crazy combinations. This ensemble started with these gorgeous beaded earrings from LOLA participant Awava, a fair trade organization that provides economic empowerment to women in Uganda. From there I added the blue cardigan and fuchsia shoes. All in all, it's a pretty basic outfit, but the colors make it feel fun!
Now that we're in the thick of winter, keeping warm has become a priority. Luckily, there are lots of cute outerwear and accessory options out there, like these adorable handmade armwarmers by LOLA artist KitMit!
