Radiant Orchid

Purple has been definitely reflective in a lot of the Spring looks this season all due to the color of the year being Ultraviolet. When it comes to the purple family, I tend to stay away from the classic shade, but I am loving lavender, lilac, and my new favorite radiant orchid. 

The pink and fuchsia undertones makes this a shade that flatters all skin tones. It's definitely a color that can be paired with tons of other colors and will look amazing. Also, orchid colored makeup looks great against my skintone. I am wearing Yoshi from Colourpop and for $7 its a great liquid lipstick. 

To pay homage to this cool shade, I went with this great dress courtesy of Lane Bryant. This dress was from one of their Lane Style collections which is a curated group of on trend items. The Off the Shoulder dress was from one of their earlier collections dedicated to dresses, but with the weather in NYC not being the warmest, I waited until now to wear the dress. The material is made of a stretch cotton. Its great for warm days since its lightweight. I am wearing a size 18, and it has a stretchy waist which helps cinch you in. 

When Target announced that they were adding new brands to their assortment, I was curious, but not expecting much. Boy did they prove me wrong. Not only are the clothes amazing, but the shoe selection has stepped up as well. I have wide feet, so the options for cute and affordable wide shoes can be hard. I was already loving the A New Day collection from Target, but then they added wide width shoes, and now I am hooked. I am still rocking my block heels, and these orchid wide width pair called the Michaela from Target are a must have. First you can't go wrong with the price- they are $25, and they carry whole & half sizes in medium and wide widths, and with the heel being only 2.5 inches, I can wear these all day with ease. 

With all the monochromatic goodness going on, I wanted to add another pop of color by wearing my neon pineapple belt. This is a goodie from Eloquii last year. I soo wished they brought it back this season with different fruits because it was such a fun belt. For my accessories, I went with my tassel earrings from Sugarfix by Baublebar.
