What I'm Wearing:The Bold and the Beautiful

Hello Sunshine! It is so nice to have warmer weather and Mr. Sunshine peaking out and beating down on my skin. To celebrate this warmer spring weather, I decided to combine two bright items in my closet. Why? Because I'm a rebel like that.

Mixing colors is pretty much trial and error, well, in my opinion at least. You never know exactly how it will look until you try it on. I first tried these coral jeans with a mint sparkly sweater and gave it a big thumbs down. I looked like a sorbet. Not my best look. So then I saw this fun chartreuse top in my closet and thought it would be an interesting choice to rock with the bright jeans. Because everything else was so bright, I accessorized with shimmery nude shoes and a neutral bag. I rather like this outfit, it's just so darn cheerful. Do you agree?

Jeans: JC Penney, Top: Kohl's, Shoes: H by Halston via Baker, Handbag: The Tailor Shop

Are you feeling these brights?

  7. When I mix colors, I only really do so with ones I've already seen again and again and again. Or I do what I did today.. white, navy, grey and black. I can't say that I use brights too much but I do love them!

  16. Look at you rocking all the boldness. I'm more of a neutrals person, so I wouldn't be able to carry this look off very well, but you look ahhh-mazing. You are meant to wear strong colors!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
