Brights by Melissa

Thursday, October 13, 2011
I love bold colors. Some of my favorite pieces in my closet right now are my pink pencil skirt, my orange pumps, and my yellow pants. I decided to go bold and combine two of my favorite things...orange shoes and a pink skirt. Favorite + Favorite = Favorite Squared right? 


 Do I love my favs together? I’m still not sure…..a little garish maybe? Does the green help?

 

I have a secret in this outfit. I was so proud of my ingenuity. The clasp on my necklace broke, so I turned it around and tied it in a loose knot. Necklace is still in use while broken. Success? I think so.

I am wearing a shirt and skirt from Anthropologie, Shoes from UrbanOutfitters, and a necklace from Aeropostale.

So how do you wear the brights in your closet?

  2. I like the color combo! Are those shoes comfortable? I've had my eye on them but don't want to purchase something that gives me a backache or blisters.

  3. I think it looks great. I definitely need more brights in my closet! I never really noticed how much of my wardrobe is neutrals/dark until I was organizing it to pack for a trip this spring!

  4. I love the green and pink together. From the picture the shoes also look pinkish, it might be my monitor though.

  8. I love these shoes! I haven't had a single problem with comfort since I bought them. The heel is just the right height to be able to go about a day comfortably

  10. I love how you paired your brights together, I think the green is almost a neutral with the red.  I'm boring with my brights, generally pairing them with black, white, grey and stripes. I'm trying to be more adventurous! Love how you saved your necklace, I have one that's in a similar predicament!

  19. Great idea with the necklace. I love the shoes together with the skirt. I bet they'd also look good with a red, pink, orange, or yellow top too!
