A Pop of Color

This summer is all about bright colors. Wearing fun, bright colors always seems to set the tone for a fun, bright mood. Whether it’s an accent belt or an accent skirt- it’s all fair game!

I love this J. Crew neon mini. It’s perfect in so many ways. And…prepare yourself… it was a clearance find! It pairs nicely with this Free People crop top…which was also on sale! I think a frilly, more neutral top helps to tone down the ‘wow effect’ of the skirt.
 I love the detailed cuff (a Forever 21 buy that I find myself throwing on all the time- so versatile!). I couldn't finish this outfit without my favorite Steve Madden platforms- a Dillard’s clearance find I’ll forever thank myself for!  It’s amazing how many things you can find on clearance/sale if you just wait it out (especially at big name department stores!)… :)
And of course…next come the colored jeans! They’re everywhere and make for some lovely color blocking opportunities. I love the pale yellow skinnies with a teal sleeveless blouse and a pop-of-color neon belt. The detail at the neckline of this shirt edgy but feminine. Of course, I threw this outfit with my favorite platforms!
I couldn’t leave out the summer staple- white jeans. White jeans are lovely with a bright top, like this coral one. We forgot the earrings in the photo, but I love this outfit with these turquoise earrings from Val’s Boutique! Perfect color combo.
Lastly- who doesn’t need a swimsuit cover-up?! A J. Crew Outlet sale find, this cover-up is just casual enough for a day at the pool but just colorful enough to catch your eye. And don’t forget your floppy hat- to keep your skin beautiful and style sassy. :)

Stay colorful!


  1. You are so pretty and I love your skirt!!

  2. Aw, thank you so much! The model wearing the skirt is actually my sister, haha! :)

  3. White jeans and bright tops are my summer staple! I love the jcrew could totally get away with wearing that straight to lunch or happy hour from the beach!

  4. Me too! White jeans are so easy to throw on! And wow, great idea...I've never thought of that! I'll have to try it out:)
