Color Combination Series

WOW it's April, 1/4 of the year already gone...where has 2012 went? 

My inspiration: During Fashion Week the designers really played up colors and prints. 

Peter Som S/S 2012

Several people have emailed me with questions about combining colors. So I've decided to do a series this week, each day featuring a different color combination. If you would like to see a particular combination don't hesitate to email me by going to my contact page.

TODAY'S COMBO...Blue & Yellow
Blue & Yellow

Outfit #1- This is a 2 piece evening look I created with intentions of it appearing to be a dress...I think I succeeded. This can be achieved with any color and/or print by keeping the lines and draping similar.  I kept the heels and clutch neutral with a touch of texture on each. The emerald earrings add another pop of unexpected color while the diamond bracelet mimics the diamond detailing on the top of the skirt.

Outfit #2- A springy dress and cardigan can be worn almost anywhere, as long as there is no semi-formal or formal dress code of course. Pair it with some cute wedges and keep the handbag in the same color family and throw on some delicate jewelry for a pulled together sophistication. This dress makes me want to pack up lunch and have a picnic at the lake with my hubby and a bottle of wine (putting that on my calendar for the weekend...possibly). 

Outfit #3- Cool, casual, and colorful, not to mention comfy. This is such a great outfit for running errands, lounging around, and hittin' the classroom. Depending on your weather swap out the jeans for cutoffs or denim capris. Pink flats and a yellow fringe bag bring the playful fun-ness into the look. Yes, I'm pretty sure fun-ness is not a word. Just see it as a tiny dose of me and my personality.
   *This combo doesn't have to exclude other colors either, it also looks good with some added in red, green, or pink. 

Email me a picture of you rockin' your favorite colors and a description for a chance to be my featured reader of the week. And don't forget to enter the giveaway here.
