One of the best ways to make everyday clothing more fun is to mix casual and dressy pieces together. This is especially an exciting experience during the spring and summer months, where color is a must. This week we're using one of our all-time favorite hues to spice up an otherwise super casual pair of jeans. 

You won't be saving this pink Oscar de la Renta top just for Wednesdays (catch the Mean Girls reference). With a boned bodice and short puff sleeves, you'll want to show this piece off as much as possible. As fancy as this top may seem, it can easily go with many different things and can be worn from work to going out. For us, it was screaming for a little daytime denim. Made from stretch cotton denim, these icy blue 90s RE/DONE jeans have a high-rise silhouette with slim, straight legs and distressed accents. We wanted to go light and airy for the shoes, which is why these Gianvito Rossi beauties are perfect for our casual-cool look. The Metropolis sandals are a modern interpretation of Cinderella's glass slippers. Making use of the label's beloved PVC, these towering open-toe shoes have semi-transparent straps that wind around the feet, including the ankles. 

We paired up our soft-colored separates with the it bag of the season. A take on the label's signature "The Pouch" clutch, Bottega Veneta's pretty pink bag is crafted from soft folds of lambskin leather in a slouchy, gathered design. Bringing in a small touch of nature via our jewelry are these enchanting butterfly stud earrings by Tai, which are both delicate and glamorous. 

The ultimate finishing touch of any warm-weather look is a pair of fabulous sunglasses. Gucci makes a case for geometric shades with this hexagonal pair, which features a subtle beige tint to its acetate frames, featuring the brands gleaming golden logo on the sides. Last but not least is a splash of beauty. With sandals this special, a chic pedicure is a must. This subtle rose-beige shade from Gucci Beauty will have your toes looking just as sophisticated as every piece of your ensemble. 

Whether you're heading to brunch or attending a work event, in this outfit, you'll be the queen of "Wishful Pinking!"
