Neutral Tones

The last three purchases that I have made all have one thing in common-they're neutral. Lately I have been drawn to softer colors like white, tan or light brown. I'm trying to mix my wardrobe up more and this obsession isn't helping. This morning while I was browsing Anthropologie's site I couldn't help that they seem to be obsessed with neutral tones as well. I figured that I might as well give into my obsession. It's pretty easy to mix neautral colors into brighter pieces. I could always just do that, right? :) 


I also couldn't help but notice some of my favorite style celebrities (Taylor Swift, Rachel Bilson and Lauren Conrad) are also very into the neutral tones this summer. So, that gives me more of a reason to obsess. Right? Haha.


Who do you think styled the neutral tones the best in these pictures? Are you more into soft colors this season or are you going more towards bright, electric colors?

  1. Neutrals are lovely! And your choices rock. I also love the celeb styles, they actually look GOOD!!! Than again, those ladies almost always do. My favorite is probably Taylor Swift ('cause I lurve her) but I adore Rachel's skirt!

  4. I love neutrals as they look so elegant, but I find it hard to keep them clean! Kate Middleton wore a lot of whites and creams on her tour so I think we'll be seeing these colours for a while. - Kat

  9. My favorite is Taylor's as well, I am such a huge fan of the way she dresses. I sued to be obsessed with sundresses and cowboy boots because of her. Haha.
    Kat-I LOVE Kate's style! It's so chic. :)
    Rachel-I don't think she could bend over in that! Haha.
    The shirt on the top right is my favorite as well Anna. :)

  10. I am a neutrals fan...have been and always will be! However..to satisfy the sights of my fans...I was asked to incorporate vibrant colours so I am exploring bold brights. It's not as daunting as I imagined it to be! I love all the tops and dresses you posted!

  27. I love Lauren Conrad's look! Taylor Swift is one of my style icons though. I am loving neutrals for the summer...so easy to wear.

    I haven't commented in a while, but I heard that Scout had to be put down...I'm so sorry!! I actually cried a little when I read your tweets/post. Losing a pet is so hard...Scout seemed so sweet and adorable. Sorry for your loss.

  34. I've been looking high and low for the perfect neutral knit top. I have yet to find it...but there are some on Chicwish, that come very close to what I am looking for. I love the soft and pretty, romantic look to neutrals especially when paired with a lacy dress or skirt. Taylor Swifts is my favorite:)

    Marissa-Lace is a perfect match for neautrals. :)

    Laura-I'm sure you could easily!

    Thank you all. <3

  37. Oh I so agree. I'm being drawn to some neutrals, but more so just light airy fabrics. Cream doesn't work so well for me but bright colors in light fabric makes me so happy lately :P
