I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I know I did .. spending some family time with Allen & Chloe in our beautiful getaway at Rancho Valencia was much needed! (Have you been following my snaps @chrisellelim?) I hope all the amazing mothers out there also had a great mother’s day! As I’ve said over the weekend but I’ll repeat now .. I didn’t know how much work & sacrifices it takes to raise a kid .. you moms are super heros and I hope you all have had an amazing and loving weekend!

I’m starting this Monday with something preppy and plaid. When you’re color coordinating, think of playing with primary colors this spring! It has got to be the most simplistic thing to wear. I love the way these blue and yellow plaid shorts match the blue in my sweater. This navy theory shirt sweater is one of those pieces that is easily overlooked. It was until a sales associate suggested that I try this shirt on, and that’s when I noticed this chic short sleeve linen sweater. It’s incredibly breathable and comfortable which is great for dressing up for work or keeping casual with a pair of shorts. I also adore the relaxed drop shoulder design. This sweater is definitely a must in every gal’s spring closet…thinking about getting the white colored one as well.  You guys know I mainly stay true to effortless white outfits (especially for Mondays), but I also love playing with blue hues, as you might remember from this post. When in doubt .. try choosing simple colors to pair. Let me know your favorite color combos in the comments below!
