Bold & Bright



This is my 2nd post in the spring trends series with T.J. Maxx and this time it's all about brights!  This particular combination is probably the bravest I've been thus far on the blog when it comes to mixing colors...but I couldn't resist when I found these amazing pieces!  I started with the green top & blue trousers (a pairing I've always been fond of), and when I saw this gorgeous bag at such a great price, I decided to add in one more bright pop of color.  And since these hues make such a strong statement all on their own, I kept the shoes neutral and my jewelry to a minimum.

If you're wary of trying something this bold, start by just mixing a pop of color into an outfit (like a bright bag or fun shoe) - once you do, I promise you will love it & want to incorporate these cheery shades into your closet more.  Nothing elevates your mood faster & you'll be perfectly on-trend for the season!

You look absolutely stunning. I love that you teamed these brights with neutral-but-not-boring metallic heels. Perfect.

This color combo is fun but elegant. I'd love to see you do a post on how to style a shirt buttoned to the top, it can be hard to pull off and you do it well.

Fun color combo:)

Beautiful colors! The bright bag is the icing on the cake to the green-blue. With a bright bag, I like the idea that if it goes with nothing, then it goes with everything :). Although it is subtly prep to pair pink and green :). Thanks for the combo!

KImberly,
That bag! How beautiful is that color? I especially love how you paired it with the saturated hue of the blouse. So pretty! Have a beautiful day!

I really like this whole look. The colors are great together! That bag is to die for. I need it. And I'm loving those shoes too!

clpatters said...

Love this outfit on you, the top is such a pretty color and I especially like the pants as a similar color but dressier option than jeans. I'll also have to agree with everyone else on the shoes - they're AMAZING!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

This is a great combination! I've just recently started wearing 3 bright colors together. I think it is fun. Those sandals are SO pretty!

Wow! really hope i can find those shoes at my TJMaxx... and that bag!

question: would you mind telling us if you're wearing a camisole or just a nude bra under your blouse? a lot of the spring tops i'm finding are very sheer and while i'd normally just layer over a cami, sometimes the cami "ruins" the lines and the look. but you're working it!

Kim Almonroeder said...

Gorg! Love this combo on you. I seriously HATE everything in my closet right now so I'm just going to start copying everything you wear! Haha :)

Kimberly said...

Hi Dianna,

I am wearing a nude bra + nude cami underneath this blouse - though it's basically invisible in these pictures, it's needed for practical everyday life. My favorite camis are from The Limited, because the fit is great, they have super-skinny straps and they come in all different shades for every skintone. Hope that helps! :)

xo,
Kimberly

Christina Heflin said...

Love this look, I was a little uneasy about bright hues from head to toe at first, but you're right. Once you start you fall in love. Now I can't get enough pops of color!
