Lemon-Lime



I'm always looking for new pairings using pieces I already own and, though this combination is a bright one, I just couldn't resist putting these colors together.  My husband said it reminded him of green & yellow Skittles - hence, the title for this post.  But, it felt really fun to me and the bright hues provided a perfect backdrop for these layered necklaces...which further added to the candy-colored effect.




What I'm wearing:
Old Navy sweater (last seen here; similar splurge or save), Banana Republic skirt (last seen heresimilar), BCBG pumps (last seen here; similar), Jason Wu for Target satchel, Necklaces: Forever 21 (similar) & c/o Lydell NYC (here), Mudd sunnies (on sale here)

You look like a refreshing bottle of Sprite! And I can't believe those are TWO necklaces because they totally look like they were made to be one.
