Dear Kindred,

Even though I may not be wearing green, it’s not quite St. Patricks Day yet! For now this green door will have to do. But, you best believe I’ll be sporting green on Friday. Do you have any Irish plans this St. Patricks Day? To start, you should head on over to Pretty b. to snag something during their St. Patrick’s Day Sale!

For now, I am musing over mauve. Here’s a little history lesson on the color named after the French mallow flower. The inventor discovered the color by accident which later became noteworthy for the hue. Purple dye was costly so only the emperors, clerics and kings of the French wore it exclusively. The product that made up mauve was quick, easy and cheap, so was made accessible to queens, as well as maids. The 1890’s are sometimes known as “The Mauve Decade” in tribute to its popularity!

I have a love affair with this color. Mauve is a color that plays up romantic dreams. The laser cut details of this blouse give off such a feminine and soft look. Plus, mauve flatters every skin tone. I always gravitate toward dark or neutral colors but, this season I’ve challenged myself to incorporate more colors and this top is my rendition of that.

Mauve is such a beautiful pastel hue that I recommend sticking with calm neutral pairings or complementary colors. It’s a color that is somewhat vague and also looks different based off of what other color you pair it with. Seems like this color is going to be popular this season with all pieces and shades.

I love that this blouse is a little longer in the back. It elongates the legs and doesn’t require a lot of extra details or pieces. That’s why I’ve just stuck with some blue jeans and booties. The arms billow out just a tad which I think is eye catching. Truly, mauve is a bold choice but I am loving it! This top is from Pretty b & it’s one of many pieces from there I love! And, theres only one left, so snag it quick!

I found these shoes from Madden Girl and now they are on sale if you happen to love them. Super comfortable and a great neutral boot to walk us well into Spring.

A little Irish blessing: May your troubles be less and your blessings be more. And nothing but happiness come through your door!
