Today's Everyday Fashion: Color Story


My color inspiration (shop it)

I'm still in a patriotic spirit from 4th of July festivities yesterday, so I'm sharing a red and blue work look today. Primary colors are something I have worn over and over again (see examples here), but I was inspired by the color story of the striped top above to add light orange into the mix. Would you wear this color combination to work?

Cardigan: H&M, $18 (similar)
Belt: Forever 21, $5 (similar)
Skirt: Limited, $25
Shoes: BCBG/Ross, $20
Necklace: My Stella & Dot website, $79
Watch: Michael Kors, family gift
Rings: My Stella & Dot website $49 and $49
Bracelets: My Stella & Dot website $49 and $32 and $59


1. Charlotte Russe skirt, $16.99
2. Anne Klein skirt, $36.08
3. Kohl's skirt, $40

  1. Before I saw the inspiration photo I totally thought of that shirt when I saw your outfit :-)  I love all these colors and wouldn't have thought to put them together.  They look great on you and I love how bright the colors are!

  16. I just got a bright blue skirt like that and wore it to work last week for the first time. I work in a very conservative environment but with a white button down and black blazer it was very doable!

  18. I saw this shirt in the store on the sale rack last weekend. The first thought I had was "a little too bert and ernie for me". I definitely would have grabbed it if i had any major summer picnic or festival but I didn't think I'd get enough wear out of it. Love the palette though!

  28. Love your look.  The tank tucked into the blue skirt is adorable!  Happy Friday!

  29. I love this look!  That top is gorgeous and I love how you reinterpreted it with pieces that are probably already in everyone's wardrobe!  Plus this color scheme is vaguely reminiscent of Wonder Woman, which is too cool :)

  30. I would absolutely wear that to work! Sometimes you just need to have a little fun with fashion in the workplace. Love the color combo!

  31. This work-worthy, "Bright Crayons" color mix you put together here, J., is just............ *g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s.*!!    The top of your outfit almost looks a little bit like a monochromatic color scheme~~(although it might simply be the coloration on my computer screen!!)~~because your cardigan appears to be a deep "ORANGEY-red";  and your pretty ORANGE Flounce-Trimmed Top also is a "different take," (i.e., paler)............ on the color orange, too!!Your yellow belt makes your outfit really  *m.e.m.o.r.a.b.l.e.,*  as............ A "Bright Crayons" Outfit!!

  32. J, you always look very pretty and put-together, I like your bright choices however, I would love to see you in something a little "out-of-the-box" maybe something that wouldn't necessarily be an obvious fashion choice but maybe a little bit more of a risk and not so matchy matchy, although keep up the good work I'm very inspired by your blog :)

    I love that look! I tend to gravitate towards primary colors. It's easy with the color blocking trend as well.
