She's always buzzing just like neon

This is what I wore last Sunday to a family party... but it rained before I got to photograph it. I put it on the following morning, and it was just too darn bright in the AM! The exposure on these shots was terrible and I had such a hard time trying to correct them. I was debating whether or not to post them, but I loved the outfit.

This color combo of fuchsia and orange is one that I have seen a hundred times this summer and when I spotted this Ellen Tracy tank at TJMaxx on clearance for $5, I decided I had to have it, just for the sake of color blocking it with this orange mini.

I like this color combo so much! It's been on my to-do list, but I need more orange in order to pull it off! I'm so glad you posted these pics!

Gray Skies said...

Love it! Pink and orange together is pretty much my favorite color combo ever - I wish I had more of those colors in my closet!

Style Journey said...

Great color blocking! This is a great combo, and you paired it with starfish cuff and the blue bag! Perfection as usual :-)

Farrielle Design and Fashionista said...

OOOh pretty, I love it. I am considering buying a top in that color to wear with my orange shorts. Love the bracelet;)

Shey said...

nice! I think everyone has done orange and pink by now but yours is different because of the pop of turquoise and the star bracelet just adds perfection to it.

Kasmira said...

You look electric!

It's funny that you think these aren't the best quality - I think they turned out just fine!

I love all of the colors here. The blue is unexpected, but it works so well!

I think we have seen the pink/orange combo so much this summer because it is just so fun! however, I don't think I have seen anyone else accessorize it with the turquoise/blue quite like you have. I love it!

This color blocking is my fave and then there is that cuff...
I have not been able to try this combo because I need to search in my closet for the colors... i wonder if I even have them!?
Even if I don't, this week I got a top with those two colors...

I think the shots are amazing. I don't see what you were talking about. This is my favorite color-blocking combo. Just gorgeous. And the seafoam sunglasses adds a perfect splash of color on top of all that gorgeous color. LOVE it.

Shawna said...

I love the energy of this outfit. You are the first to pull this off seamlessly in an everyday look.

Alex Elizabeth said...

I really want to go bright colorblocking for fall too! Hate it when I screw up photos. My biggest problem is white balance, but I've been a huge fail with exposure lately (started using manual mode).
