Modern Colorist Does Jumpsuits…Modern Colorist | Spring & Summer Trends 2015 | JumpsuitBig. Bold . Blue. This blue floral jumpsuit from Asos is a summer thrill! It’s light and breezy and packs a statement!

The shade of blue is one of my summer favorites!Modern Colorist | Spring & Summer Trends 2015 | JumpsuitInstead of a colorful necklace, I went for the metallic. The gold is a great contrast to the blue, not drawing away from the print.

TRICK: The necklace I have on were three different necklaces from Forever 21. I added a string to the ends of each chain to extend the necklaces. I knotted all the stringes together  so the three necklaces made a big necklace. I made it long enough so I can slip it over my head. Instead of single choker necklace I made a bold statement necklace!Modern Colorist | Spring & Summer Trends 2015 | JumpsuitModern Colorist | Spring & Summer Trends 2015 | JumpsuitModern Colorist | Spring & Summer Trends 2015 | JumpsuitThe shoes are also a score from Asos. Patent leather with fringe detail in a shiny soft blue… what could be more of a dream?

Mixing different shades, tints, or tones, within the same color family is a fun way to let people know you know what you are doing! Flaunt what you know!

Want to know the difference between shade, tint, tones?

  • Shade: If black is added, the darker version.
  • Tint: If a color is made lighter by adding white.
  • Tone: The result of adding gray.

So in my case, the soft blue shoes are considered a tint from the brighter blue from the jumpsuit.

Modern Colorist Does Relaxed Fashion…Modern Colorist | Relaxed FashionMy birthday present this year is this amazing denim jumpsuit from ASOS. (Shop it! Love It!) I’ve probably worn it every other day ever since I got it. Oops… But it’s so easy to just slip it and not think about figuring out an outfit! I love those types of clothes. Makes life easier.Modern Colorist | Relaxed FashionI’m always in need of good size bag for my adventures or just everyday life. The ones that will last through the grim while still remaining stylist and unique. I’ve got the perfect one!

A local brand that is doing extraordinary things, Humble Hilo makes beautiful handmade Guatemalan bags, shoes, clothes, and home deco. They work with those in Guatemala to give employment and a portion of every item goes directly back to those in need. I mean… come on, that’s amazing!Modern Colorist | Relaxed FashionModern Colorist | Relaxed FashionThe cutout in the back of the jumpsuit helps to breakup the heaviness of the denim. Modern Colorist | Relaxed FashionModern Colorist | Relaxed FashionOver the past two weeks, I’ve worn this jumpsuit with all types of shirts: striped tee, solid blouse, if so daring you can go without. But I love this Windowpane-Patterned Peasant Top that I got in the sale section from Forever 21. Just an easy, relaxed shirt that is still very feminine.Modern Colorist | Relaxed FashionGray and suede, these wood heeled clogs are Sanita, The Original Danish Clog. They complete that relaxed, natural aesthetic,

Got to love the Danes!Modern Colorist | Relaxed FashionModern Colorist | Relaxed FashionI had to add a little peak-a-boo of color. Hence the blue nails!Modern Colorist | Relaxed FashionSorry if you see me wearing this a lot but I seriously can’t help it, and don’t want to help it! Modern Colorist | Relaxed FashionModern Colorist | Relaxed FashionIs there something you wear all the time?

Spring + Summer Trends: Artsy

June 19, 2015

I love seeing the unique 2015 Spring and Summer Trends that are happening this season!

Today is all about…

ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . ARTSY . Modern Colorist | Spring and Summer Trends | Artsy

Among the finds there is Matisse’s Cut-Out influenced dress by Alice + Olivia. His other piece is more of a loose Expressionist style, with the chunky strokes that make up the portrait and nature. Andrew GN’s designed a dress inspired by famous Claude Monet’s Water Lilies. Emanuel Ungaro is more an abstract style, relying more on the placement of color, rather than form. Novis’ dress is very much on the lines of Mid Century like Modernist art, with its hard lines, yet organic forms. Stella Jean’s two pieces has a very Cuban art feel to me, with the colors, the people and island. Tsumori Chisato’s dress is very playful with a modern imagination.

Modern Colorist Does Artsy…

Modern Colorist | Spring and Summer Trends | ArtsyWhen I saw this skirt at H&M it spoke to me, “It’s an obvious chose here… You have to buy me. I’m an inspiration of Llew Mejia and you can’t find another like me!” Ok of course it didn’t say that but visually it said all that.

There’s hard to find a skirt like this, at a store like H&M. I do wish there was more beautiful patterns like this one.

The painterly feel of the foliage is absolutely beautiful!Modern Colorist | Spring and Summer Trends | ArtsyI paired up my artsy skirt with my long sleeve burnt orange ribbed crop shirt. I wanted to bring out the accents of the little accents of orange in the skirt.Modern Colorist | Spring and Summer Trends | ArtsyModern Colorist | Spring and Summer Trends | ArtsyMy shoes are Proud Mary‘s. They go with pretty much anything and are the best in the summer. Light weight, breezy… need I say more?Modern Colorist | Spring and Summer Trends | ArtsyThis little nook is right near my house. Like a little green house with an array of plants, a fountain and quite place to take a a refreshing break. There’s even quaint little painting studio.
