“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” ~ Dr. Seuss
Who said matchy, matchy looks are no fun? Not ME! Now, don’t get me wrong… I’m not a fan of the whole matchy matchy look on a regular basis. I believe in mixing things up, but, in some cases, it can be fun to play a little, especially when you have cool color blocked tops or bottoms!
As you know, I’m a fan of using one item as inspiration to build an entire look! The inspiration for this look was the blouse of course!! I snagged this beauty from Target when they launched the Phillip Lim collection. ( And by the time I got there, all the great bags were gone…SMH) I figured, why not play around with blues and greens!? Now please understand, you don’t always have to have the same shade of each color you are playing around with!! It’s all about how you accessorize your look to bring it all together!
And I am a firm believer in wearing shorts year round… That’s what they make tights for!! It’s no different then wearing a skirt, it’s all about making your look appropriate for the season!! And of course no look is complete without tying in the perfect accessories!
I absolutely love my necklace and clutch I snagged from Fly Behavior Boutique online…This Chicago based boutique always has the cutest items and more importantly an excellent price point for any budget! This “Love Link” necklace has become my favorite standout piece! The necklace and clutch combination help give this look a playful, youthful edge!!
Don’t be afraid to try new looks, it’s so worth it when people stop you on the street and say, “OMG, you look so cute!” LOL… And don’t forget to shop your own closet!! You’d be surprised! You might have some hidden treasures just waiting to help pull your look together!
