Color Combo Series #2

Today's color combination is PURPLE & ORANGE! I know that a couple of months ago I said the whole tangerine fiasco wasn't my thing, but it's really growing on me. I seriously need to order some orange something because I only have a couple things. I've created a few outfits to give you some inspiration on this trend...
Purple & Orange

Outfit #1- I love this look. You can wear it to dinner, on a date, even to the office as long as you keep the blazer on. There are some touches of turquoise in the jewelry and the handbag to compliment those AWESOME beaded heels. You could also dress this down by adding a rocker tee and combat/moto boots.

Outfit #2- A loose top is comfortable (especially on hot days) and when paired with high waist pleated shorts it ups the style factor. One thing I hate is seeing a woman in all over loose fitting clothes. You can avoid looking frumpy by keeping either the top or bottom more fitted. These shorts will still be a tad loose but the cut fits closer to the body, that's why this works. To balance it out I kept the accessories on the chunky side. 

Outfit #3- Doesn't this make you want to go to a music festival, or any outdoorsy festival? This look is totally boho from the palazzo pants to the jewelry, to the handbag, and the denim bolero. 

I am definitely trying this color combination out in the near future. 1 thing I've realized while doing this post...I need to get those beaded heels!
