Spring is in the air and I cannot get enough of pastels and soft colors this time of year. When I first slipped on the Boden Summer Wrap Dress in Driftwood Apple Geo, I was not only impressed by how incredibly comfortable it was but how it is one of those dresses that will effortlessly transition form Spring to Summer.  A wrap dress is such a timeless wardrobe staple that just never seems to lose momentum on the fashion scene.The pattern of this dress is subtle yet still fun and the lovely piping around the cap sleeves adds yet another element of interest.

I’m completely obsessed with wrap dresses right now and was so thrilled to find such a comfortable option.  So far I’ve worn this dress with a pair of flip-flops to my sons soccer practice and on the very same day I dressed it up for a night out with the husband by simply switching the look up with a  pair of pumps. It is completely versatile for taking your look from day to night!

Are you all loving Boden as much as I am? I find myself searching endlessly through their catalog with at least nine items on the “I Must Buy Now!” list.

The Fashion Informant took a little vacation however, we are not only back but we are back with a great giveaway that I hope you will all enter in for a chance to win! I’ve joined forces with 10 fantastic ladies to bring you a chance to win $200 in Paypal cash! Woohoo!

Let’s talk outfit…I found this super comfortable Chambray dress at the Gap a few weeks ago and I feel like I’ve worn it 100 times since then. Seriously one of the most comfortable dresses I’ve owned and it is perfect for pretty much everything. Dress it up with heels like I’ve done here or wear it with your favorite sandals or heck a simple pair of not so fancy flip-flops (as I have for the last 99 times). It is one of those versatile pieces that will get a lot of wear. I topped the look with my favorite Banana Republic raincoat as there was a bit of a drizzle throughout the day…which will also explain my frazzled hair.

Tone-On-Tone

Today I’m thrilled to have the lovely and talented Kellie of ie-Style here to show us how to put together three fabulous tone-on-tone looks! For more inspiration be sure to stop by ei-Style!

Typically I’m a huge supporter of mixing colors in an outfit. Either adding an unexpected splash of color through accessories, or just pairing items of clothing together that are complementary in color, yet different. Remember one of my favorite sayings from Clinton Kelly on TLC’s What Not to Wear is “things don’t have to match – they have to go”. I personally love taking risks with color mixing.

However, I also think that we should make an effort once in a while to wear things differently than we typically would. It’s incredibly refreshing to shake things up a bit. Lately I’ve been thinking of trying outfits that are tone-on-tone in color using just lighter & darker shades of the same color.

Tone-on-Tone

The key to making this work without looking too “matchy-matchy” is using varying textures & patterns, thus creating visual interest. Also, accessories with metallic finishes will compliment these outfits nicely as well as add another layer of interest.

While I don’t think I would personally sport a tone-on-tone look on a regular basis, I think I will try & incorporate it more often. For those of you who tend to shy away from color mixing, this may feel more familiar & comfortable to you.

Regardless of your preference, I would always encourage you to shake things up a bit now & again. I think you’ll find it a breath of fresh air!

A big thank you to Sherry at The Life of the Party Blog for having me as a guest today!!
