Today's Everyday Fashion: Perfect Harmony


I love it when seemingly random colors come together and form the perfect pairing. It's almost like music notes making a song. Ingredients are just ingredients until you use them to make something beautiful! In my head, these colors - electric blue, lime green, seafoam and mustard - should not go together. But they work for some reason. My hypothesis? Colors from the same "family" (blues/greens/yellows) make the perfect outfit. Try selecting one side of the color wheel to make an unexpected but harmonious outfit that works for you!

  7. This is a beautiful color scheme!  I think I am going to print a copy of the color wheel for some inspiration.  This summer is turning out to be the summer of color and I am absolutely loving all the bold colors now!

  14. I love these colors together! I'm a big fan of pairing yellow with almost any other color.

    And where is there an H&M in Orlando? I know there's one coming to a local mall but I haven't seen any other locations in town.

    Thanks Melissa! There is an H&M at the Florida Mall and Sanford Mall. You are correct that they are opening a new one - I think in Altamonte?

    locations, huh? :)

  22. Love that look.  I can't wear the gold yellows but do have a hot pink top that I think could work with the aqua and grey.  I think you have inspired a new outfit.
