I can't believe this was the best picture of the bunch.... Being photographed is not my forte.
modest lds fashion blog clothed much
Wearing Gap Outlet tee ($7), Gap floral scarf as belt ($8), Shade skirt ($12), Ros Hommerson oxfords ($25), pearl necklace as bracelet ($5).

I actually had another outfit picked out last night and this came to mind in the morning once I woke up. I really like the yellow and green and the florals and stripes combos. I have to be more open to color combos... Neutrals are so easy though!! Good thing there are helps like this to help people like me! What are some of your favorite color combinations?

  2. Another awesome outfit. Being photographed isn't your forte? PLEASE! You're beautiful! Anyways, some of my favourite colour combinations are navy blue, red, and white - like the whole nautical look; and orange, brown, and cream - PERFECT for fall. :)x

  6. First of all, you are gorgeous and I think I love the pose! Second, I want your shoes! No, really. And I wouldn't immediately think green and yellow together but you pull it off and it looks fantastic!

  7. Fabulous, I have the same skirt from Shade and I LOVE it! Yellow is a fab color and stripes -- can't go wrong. For me, I'm big into peacock colors and black and white stripes. Delicious!

  10. The color combination is brilliant. I love the light colors and the pop of the black oxfords.
    Hm, I really love a mixture of pastels. But for Fall I love dark colors: dark blue and dark green, maroon and deep purple.

  25. Love this look- the citrusy color combo is so fresh. Your pose is so cute too! I like turq and chocolate brown together, any pastels with grey, and the classic black and white (if you can call that a color combo haha).

  26. There's my fave white skirt of yours. I seriously love it. The colour pairings are perfect and makes me want to hold onto summer just a tad longer. The yellow striped tee looks fabulous on you.

    To answer your Q, I love pairing neutrals with brights, like greys with yellow or apple green.

    Hope school's going well, Elaine ;)

  28. cute cute cute! really love your seemingly effortless yet polished outfits. and i really like the new wearing a scarf as a belt trend :)

  29. So bright and fresh! Good way to send off summer :)

    I find I am really enjoying using brown as an anchor then going with a monochromatic scheme on top of that. Like brown with multiple greens, or multiple blues. I'm kind of boring though :) Recently I've done red and purple and really liked that!

    I read your comment on my blog, and I totally agree with you, I saw the floral Dr Marteens, and I think they're cute, but not much my style, I prefer the basic ones and the style them with the outfit.
    Thanks for the comment! I'm loving your blog :)
