Bright Stride

Today, let's take a walk on the bright side with some seriously saturated styles!
Summer has pretty much come and gone (tear) but that doesn't mean you have to put away your crazy color combos! I am seriously in love with color blocking, so I never say no to the opportunity to double up on solid brights; plus it's one way to stand out in a city full of fashionistas (usually in head to toe black)!
Blue & yellow are basically besties, the two are complimentary colors located on opposite ends of the color wheel so they pair together perfectly! If you're looking to add a third color to the mix try a red lip, or a pop of pink!
Love my top… er shell? here's a secret, it's actually a dress (gasp)! I love layering some of my more expensive dresses under skirts to create the illusion of a top - it helps justify a splurge and add new layers to my wardrobe. You can also turn a dress into a skirt, double gasp, check out how I did it here & here!
Kate Spade Dress (worn as a top) similar in pink here, yellow here or rent it for $10 here!

Kate Spade Summer House Robbie Bag (old) || Vintage Bangles || Style This Life 

P.S. wondering what your philosophy is on seasonal brights? Do you hang up these happy hues for fall or keep the color coming all year long? I'm sure you can guess what my answer is… ;) Tell me, tell me!!  looking forward to hearing from you. And if I don't see you again before Tuesday (I hope not, there is a new post coming your way tomorrow) have a great weekend !! XO
