Look :: lemon + jade




shirt: Free People // skirt: J.Crew (old; similar) // booties: Report // sunglasses: Ray Ban // nail polish: Essie, Turks and Caicos

I feel the need to preface this post by saying that my cousin made fun of my color descriptions when I posted a preview of this outfit on Instagram earlier today. In the caption I listed the colors of my outfit as 'lemon, turquoise, and jade,' and he commented and asked, "You mean yellow, blue, and green?" Oh, the life of a fashion girl. Colors are far more nuanced than the primaries and different hues can dramatically alter a look. Regardless, I was in love with this outfit today and the colors were lifting my spirits and garnered several compliments. Because I chose to mix two bold colors, I kept the accessories minimal (though they appear non-existant in these photos). My favorite part? My turquoise nails which added an extra dash of whimsy.

I want to thank you all so very much for all of your comments on my last post. I'm still working to get Wordpress set up, but I hope to be able to unveil the new site soon so that I can respond to each and every one of you. I have been visiting every blog that is linked to a comment and I must say, I am astounded at the size of this Internet community and all of the incredible style everyone possesses.

  4. Cute blog! A lot of times my accessories disappear in my outfit pics too... Not exactly sure why.. I mean I don't wear a lot to begin with, but I think if you don't take close ups of the small details they just get lost.

  17. You are really looking so good in your dress, booties and sun glass. Actually there is a better combination between your dress, sun glass, and shoe. Love you so much!
