Neutrals and Br!ghts July 20, 2013

Feeling glowy and summery? Match your mood with bold jewel tones and happy neutrals! For instance, brighten up a room in a glowing yellow dress like the one by Ora Kiely (my go-to bright dress is a super cute bright yellow pleated dress by B. Smart – I’ve gotten so many compliments on that dress :P) , or add a exclamatory punch to your royal blue ensemble with a bright yellow bag like the Michael Kors clutch or a jewel tone shoe similar to the pictured Valentino pump ūüôā

As always, you can pair your brights with neutrals (beige is a choice color this season!) to calm the outfit down without losing your sunny vibe… or start with a neutral palette as offered with the Van Mildert sheath and build on it with some bright accessories in your color of choice!

Hope you enjoyed! Leave a comment and share how you’re wearing your brights this summer!

All American Bold July 15, 2013

Love all bold – color¬†and¬†print? Here are some simple ideas of how to style it ūüôā
I’ve included some of the bolder Pantone 2013 colors in the “All American Bold” Polyvore set; Poppy Red and Tender Shoots, as well as the softer Dusk Blue as an example of how to temper the fun (but noisy) colors in an ensemble. I’ve also used some popular bold prints as backgrounds – Chevron, broad stripes, and of course, the timeless polka-dot xD

Enjoy and let me know how you’re using these colors this summer!

Pastel Purity July 13, 2013

“Pastel Purity” features light, desaturated colors that are hot this summer – light blues, greens and purples and cool neutrals. Add pops of color with deep reds, warm oranges and yellows, bright greens or dark fuchsias…. or keep it earthy and subdued with creams, warm browns, washed out grays and soft pinks. Whatever you do, have fun with it and let your personality show through your choice of color ūüôā
