INSPIRED BY: ORANGE AND BLUE - PLAYING WITH CONTRASTING COLORS

8:00 am




Hi everyone!  Hope your week is off to a great start!





The weather was a bit off and on this weekend but we had a good amount of sun on Sunday so I pulled my little orange skirt for a but of color.  Then I decided why not play with contrasting colors and pair it with some blue?  In the past I have sometimes found that, although they look great together in other interpretations, WEARING contrasting colors can be tricky.  I am often concerned about looking like an Easter egg or Christmas.





I think that sometimes the trick is in the shades of the contrasting colors you pick and the amounts.  I have lately found myself enjoying red and army green combinations with less fear of looking like Christmas than I have previously experienced.   One of this seasons big trends is about incorporating and pairing brights which I think makes me feel a little safer mixing of contrasting shades.





I am still learning as I go, but the good news is that fashion is all about experimentation and change.  Trends change, times change, and often something that you think didn't worked for you before can look perfect for the next season!

Thanks to the hubs for his photography skills and for picking the final photos this week!  Hope you all have a great week!
