Yellow, Blue, & Turquoise

I really like this outfit, so when I stumbled across this photo on Chictopia, I immediately wanted to recreate it. These colors together remind me so much of the beach... and I really love the touch of yellow in the belt to bright up the blue and teal!

For my interpretation of the outfit, I substituted the blue pants for a silk full skirt.

Trend Alert: Full skirts have been gracing the runways in many of the upcoming Fall designer collections. Fashionologie, one of my top fashion reads, noted that "Designers like Vena Cava, Marc b Marc Jacobs, and Proenza Schouler" sent this silhouette skirts down their runways.

I wore a white tank to pull in the white detail from her sandals, and added the turquoise necklace to match that color in the inspiration photo. To tie in the yellow, I wore this this great belt I snagged from Target!

[[Style Tip:  Here's a great way to avoid having to buy two separate belts: If you want to be able to wear a belt both on your hips, as well as on your upper natural waist, buy it to fit your hips (or where your pants sit comfortably). Then, wrap it around your upper waist and measure where it fits. Drill a tiny hole, and wah-lah! You can wear it both ways!]]

I just discovered instagram. My apologies in advance :)

  1. I have no reason to read this blog...seeing as how I am a guy and know nothing of fashion...but keep it going! Love your spunk!

  2. I think is my favorite option so far! Loveeee everything about this. Seriously. The classic lines and the skinny yellow line is perfecto.


  3. Some guy - Thanks! Glad you read the blog! Hopefully, even though this is women's fashion, you'll take some of the tips and modify them for your own men's style!
