Congratulations Lauren Vacula, you're's Reader of the Week! A Lovely Side Project blogger Lauren Vacula submitted her gorgeous navy monochrome look via our Tumblr—and now she's not only our Reader of the Week, but she's also featured in our brand new April Color Issue!

Lauren was inspired by not one but two different features in our magazine—Dare to Wear One Color Head to Toe and December's Color Crash Course: Powder Pink. Exclusively to, Vacula explained, "Pairing one color head to toe is a great way to look effortlessly chic and quite easy to achieve. Add in several textures—like I did here with a neoprene cropped top, chiffon skirt, and patenet leather heels— and you're good to go! Then, thanks to your Color Crash Course, I knew that navy played well with pink, so I then added in a powder croc clutch to spice up my outfit just a little bit." Get inspired by more InStyle readers we ♥ in our gallery.

Check out Lauren and our other colorful Inspired By InStyle readers in our Jennifer Lopez-covered April issue, available today on newsstands or to download on your tablet.

Be our Reader of the Week! If one of our stories has inspired you to mix it up, send us a pic (300 dpi or larger) of your transformation to or submit it through InStyle's Tumblr. You could be featured in InStyle and on!
