A Pop of Color Please!


This summer you don’t need that particular bag or those certain pair of heels, but what you do need is color!  It’s summertime so have fun with your wardrobe.  I’m not suggesting you to be decked out in different colors causing onlookers to get an instant headache, but I am suggesting you to stock up on colorful accessories and get a few pieces that are not as subtle as your classic grey and brown.

Personally, I think shoes and accessories are the easiest way to liven up your outfit and give yourself that summer lovin’ feel.  With that being said, if you open up my closet, you’ll be sure to find neon heels, sneakers in all colors, and jewelry to match any color of the rainbow.  Don’t be afraid of color when it comes to accents because, as long as you keep colors in the same family for each outfit, it’ll be hard to overdo it.  Once you get used to color in your jewelry box and shoe collection, I encourage you to spice up your actual wardrobe with it.  It took some bravery on my part, but now I have red jeans, coral pants, and cobalt blue high-waisted pants.  I’ll tell you one thing, I don’t regret buying any one of them.

Color is your friend in the summertime and it’s important not to forget it, but the most important thing to remember is to never go into color overload.  You don’t want to look like a pack Crayola crayons walking down the street, so always pair your colorful choices with a toned down neutral.  Other than that, own your love for colors and enjoy what’s left of summer!
