Hi, hi! Happiest Tuesday, friends! It’s a dang scorcher over here in SoCal. I am all about warm, sunny weather until it hits 90+ and then I am out. It’s impossible to be productive and get things done when it’s just unbearablely hot, right? Summer is definitely starting on a fiery note!
Today it’s all about my love for all things citrus tones in these dog days of Summer. I find oranges and yellows to be so refreshing and fun. And nothing looks better with a good tan than these colors (and we allllll know I love a good tan!) I found this fab top + skirt from Mink Pink on revolve.com and just loved the bright, cheery print. I am slowly getting over matching sets, but at the same time they are so easy to throw on and I always think they look cute. Because the top is literally a tiny bandeau, I added on this dark denim jacket from Current Elliott (because let’s get real, I am too old to be out & about in a bra top!) I have to be honest, I used to hate hate denim jackets. I guess because I lived through the 90’s when they were super popular, so it feels childish to me whenever I try them on. I can’t stand when they are stiff and boxy, so when I randomly tried on this one, I was pleasantly surprised at the stretchy material and snug fit. Now, I find myself throwing this puppy on all the time! It’s just a great neutral that can be worn with so much.
I added my favorite Brooklyn Grace Jewelry crescent moon choker, my little everyday Shashi necklace and this Gorjana necklace to spice up my bare neckline. For bag, my little rockstud Valentino was the perfect complimentary choice. For shoes, I kept it super neutral with these platforms (sold out in tan, here in black) from Raye the Label. And to bring out the gold tones on the jacket and my necklaces, I threw on these oversized mirrored sunnies from Karen Walker.
To me, Summertime is supposed to be colorful and fun, so why not embrace that in your fashion? Even if it’s just adding a little pop in your bag or shoe choice, thats better than continually rocking all black (or white). I don’t like when people say, “only you can pull that off, Caro” because I really don’t think thats true. I think it simply comes down to putting something on and wearing it with confidence. Then all the sudden you are “pulling it off!” SO embrace all things YOU and just mix some color in.
Here are some more fun (totally wearable) citrus toned options:
