Color + Color = MORE COLOR!

Mixing Colors
It's supposed to get up to almost 70 degrees here in DC today, so to celebrate I'm wearing a red top and a swingy purple skirt! I know many people shy away from too much color, but as long as you follow some simple rules you should be in the clear!

  1. Neon bright and neon bright together can be a little hard to pull off. If you're worried it's too much, try mixing a bright with a slightly duller color, like eggplant and fire engine red or mustard and hot pink.
  2. Keep your accessories neutral. If you're wearing a bright top and bottom, go with black shoes, a gray purse, beige coat.
  3. If it makes you happy and confident, eff the rules!
If you need inspiration, some of my favorite color combinations would have to be hot pink and tangerine, violet and fiery red, and electric blue and bright lime green.

I love hot pink and tangerine together. Tomato red and bright green make me happy too.

I love the combination of teal and yellow! We're having a cold snap here in MO but these colors make my heart happy.

I love bright colours and wear them as often as I can. I love mixing more than one bright colour at a time. For some reason the bright colours are so much easier to wear in hot weather.

Love the Polyvore picture, these colours make me feel so happy
