Spiced Chartreuse


Remember this post when I resolved to wear more colors this fall/winter?  Though I have mostly succeeded by wearing bold hues mixed with neutrals (like here and here), I've yet to master mixing colors.  So, one of my New Year's "fashion resolutions" is to take more risks with color combining.  This outfit was the perfect way of easing myself into it.  Putting together pieces that are different shades but in the same color family (and adding one contrasting accessory) creates an eye-catching effect without being over-the-top.




What I'm wearing:
J. Crew sweater, Old Navy skirt (on sale here), Mossimo belt (similar here), Anne Klein NY tights, ALDO booties (on sale here), BCBG & Banana Republic necklaces, Sonoma bangles (similar here), Kenneth Cole ring, Urban Expressions clutch (here)

I was recently featured on the Accessorize style blog - you can read the full interview here & be sure to check out their store for affordable jewelry, handbags & accessories!

What a pretty skirt, and I love it with that sweater. What a nice color combo. Good luck stepping out if your color mixing comfort zone.

Yay for this fun color combo! Totally works for you, and that's the bag I'm eying. Great price on DSW but ebags has more colors. Decisions, decisions!

I have to admit that I am totally jealous at how amazing you look in yellow! It makes me look completely sad and washed out. This color is stunning on you! Love it paired with the green skirt and red purse. - Katy

Rachel said...

Well done! The colors look great together :) I get scared to wear bright colors together because I feel it will look like too much, but this is just perfect!

Love this outfit! You look fabulous :)

I can see that you live in an area with snow, like me! I will be following for some winter outfit inspiration. I feel like all of my favorite bloggers live in Texas, Florida or Cali.. and I can't wear what they are wearing in the winter!

Super cute blog~

What a lovely combination! I love that you are a SAHM (I am temporarily while on maternity leave for a full year) and pair things together that don't break the bank. Looking forward to more posts as your new follower :)

Happy New Year!
