cheap(er) chic: lovely in lilac

It is one of those days that I wish I didn't have a window in my office--as the morning started out with gray ominous clouds that are now just dumping wet snow. The warm weather this past weekend had me hopeful that the lilac bushes in the yard would soon sprout leaves and bloom. However, the current weather outlook for such an occurrence is bleak. So, I will just pine for lovely lilac clothing instead.

dress from cynthia steffe ($170), coming dusk necklace ($42), anthropologie clutch ($128), bruno magli flats ($157), j.crew patent belt ($35), alexis bittar bangle ($120)

Thanks for the inspiration! I am working on a lilac/lavender project right now, so this is fantastic!

So cute! I forgot about lilac season. I can't wait. Have you ever heard of Mackinac Island in Michigan? It is the most adorable 7 mile island (no cars allowed) and they have a lilac festival each spring.

Don't you love these gentle colors of spring? The dress is a delight, so girlie, but with a sophisticated twist!
And the flats too, love'em!

Oh Blair, I love so much your lilac picks! We're definitely in Autumn here and I've got the first cold of the season. I wish I could wear that sweet dress now!

I know that jewel tone purples have been majorly present in the fashion world for the past few seasons, but I love how lilac is softly making a slow come back. It has always been one of my favourites and it is so nice to see some examples of it here.

Beautiful post:)
