Test-Drive: Spring Accessories

It’s no secret that we’re color freaks, so when we fell down the rabbit hole of Monling Lee’s bold, bright Instagram account, we knew we’d found a kindred spirit. We asked the DC-based architect to take some of our new spring accessories out on the town and give them her signature @monlinglee colorblock spin.

Monling carries the Parker crossbody bag. Shop all bags.

“My style is all about practical, wearable separates in unexpected color combinations.”

“I’ve always been drawn to very saturated hues—I love combining three or more ultrabright colors in a the-more-the-merrier fashion.”

“I liked the idea of being a part of a community that nerds out about fashion but was always too intimidated to start my own fashion blog. Instagram seemed like a far less formidable platform!”
Monling wears Cutler and Gross® 1052 sunglasses and d'Orsay flats. Shop all eyewear and shoes.

“I’m constantly looking at buildings for inspiration. DC is full of charming brick row houses painted in vibrant hues.”
“I usually don’t wear much jewelry, but I couldn’t resist the whimsical pop flower necklace!”
