Today’s look is all about pairing crazy amounts of color with plenty of pattern!
Using these citrus-y hues, I was able to create a summery striped outfit that makes a bright yet unexpected statement look!
It seems I’ve come down with another case of the stripes! Hence the stripe on stripe pairing in this look! I am definitely not afraid to mix patterns, and really no one should be!
I really love reinventing color combinations for spring! One Perfect Pair I have found myself using a lot this season, is coral (or peach) and turquoise (or seafoam)! So this post is dedicated to taking on this spring ready color combo.
The best way to master this color combination is to pair it with gold, tan and champaign neutrals to allow these colors to really pop.
You don’t need big colorful pieces to make this combination work, invest in something small like the kate spade coral gumdrops (I basically live in mine) or some turquoise jewelry!
Pearls, another good investment piece and wardrobe workhorse, also pair perfectly with this color combination!

Okay I’m weird. I love to wear red and yellow together, and then people say I look like McDonalds…. Oh well, I’m lovin’ it.
Have I converted you? Would you dare to try Red and Yellow together or is it just too McDonalds for you?
