This month I've been all about expanding my wardrobe color. Seriously, I've made a *real* effort over the past couple of weeks to go full speed ahead out of my all neutral comfort zone — as reflected in my Instagram as of late (cue: golden yellows and temperate pinks). In honor of this challenge, a few favorites this month step out of my typical shell, from blush shoes to a yellow!!!! 'kini and more. Here's what I've been obsessed with in March.



Shein Lace Up Ribbed Bikini Set — Okay, I know it's only the end of March/ early April. And I also am very well aware of the fact that it's not like I'm going on a warm vacay to sport this anytime soon, but I'm kind of excited I found this two piece and I cannot wait to actually rock it. Point blank, it's completely out of my comfort zone color wise — but that's why I'm kind of obsessed. I think this type of golden yellow will really complement my *Mediterranean* glow, and I'm super excited to basically live in this set when the warm weather rolls around.


Quay Australia OTL Sunglasses — Straying away from my typical Lennon lenses, I took the leap and tried these babies on for a change and am happy to not turn back. I love how thick these glasses are, and I love their cut even more. They're oversized and dramatic, which I think really complements my devil-may-hare beach persona (lol) and I can't wait to add these to my 2k18 summer bag.  


Public Desire Stella Lace Up Heels — As I've been itching for summer (if you couldn't tell by my last two favorites, lol), these lace up heels also made it onto the March fav list. They're super comfy, garner a ton of double takes, and I'm loving the blush colored frame. 



Apple Airpods — My splurge of the month was, that's right, Airpods. After months of watching all of my coworkers slowly but surely acquire these little bluetooth pods, I knew I just had to get my hands on them at some point so I bit the bullet. Let's just say, I don't know what I ever did without them before, and they've truly become my new favorite toy that's not only sleek and chic looking, but also extremely practical. Worth every penny. 


Color Drip Candles by Urban Outfitters — I'm going through a lot of room accessory purging right now (the reason being is coming soon!!!), but I have to say that to this day, these are some of my favorite candles by UO. Basically, they drip out cool colors as they burn, and are super chic to add to any bedroom or apartment table. Obsessed.

And now I leave you with a little King Lear wisdom:

"When thou dost ask me blessing, I'll kneel down, And ask of thee forgiveness: so we'll live,

And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh

At gilded butterflies, and hear poor rogues

Talk of court news."

[Lear 5.3]

Here's to April + *new beginnings*
