Elegance in Ivory

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Good Wednesday morning, lovelies! Hope you're all having a wonderful week. And good news, we've made it to the middle of the week already. Not so bad, right?

For some reason lately I've been lusting after all things ivory. Might have to do with the blanket of snow I've seen for over a month or it might be that it instantly seems to soften my dark and dreary winter wardrobe. Whatever it is, I find myself gravitating towards it. It's so elegant and feminine and chic all at once. I purchased a beautiful ivory dress the other day and I cannot wait to put it on!

What color are you lusting after these days?
