She Comes In Color: Blush + Pink

May 20, 2015

I think what makes a great outfit is combining unique and interesting colors together.

I felt like having a blush pink day. Blush pink is a soft color which goes well with a lot of fun colors but blue is beautiful color to pair it up with! I could have thrown on some blue jeans, or a blue bag, and kicked it with some navy blue shoes. I decided to wear all pink and have the whole outfit pop against the blue background! Modern Colorist│She Comes In Color│Blush + PinkModern Colorist│She Comes In Color│Blush + PinkModern Colorist│She Comes In Color│Blush + PinkOne trick to pairing colors together is mixing a warm color, in this case blush pink, with a cool color, blue/navy. It gets a little drab when you’re only working with cool colors. With warm tones it can get a little mushy. Breaking up the color helps with both of those cases.

 I didn’t want to add anymore bulk to the dress so I wore a leather sandal in a more neutral tone.

Five Ways To Wear A Pair Of Pants - Denim on DenimThis week I’m giving you tips on how to wear a certain pair of pants five different ways!
1st Day was The Boyfriend T Shirt.

4th Day is The Denim Shirt.
Denim on denim on denim… if I could I would just layer it all up! Britney & Justin really had something good going…
It’s the easiest outfit to throw together when I am just having one of those days. With this outfit I matched my light distressed denim from Zara with my textured H&M darker denim shirt. I like playing with the two shades and mixing the texture of the denim shirt with the texture of the pant. I tied the tails of the shirt to give it more of a feminine touch.
Modern Colorist: Fives Ways To Wear A Pair Of PantsI was channeling some southwestern vibes and put on my handmade turquoise necklace by Alex Darling and my tortoise shell sunglasses. The denim shirt and turquoise is so complementary.

I kept that southwestern theme going with my vintage hand-tooled leather bag that has a name “Irene” apparently for it being stamped on the inside.

I like to match my bag or belt with my shoes. My vintage mens boots is the perfect pair. These are one of my favorite boots I have. They go with jeans, to dress, to a whole lot in between.
It’s nice to play with the cool tones of the denim shirt and pants with the warms tones of the leather.

The red lipstick is that pop of color!

And the best accessories of them all, a dog. Maybe you soon will realize how much I love dogs. This is Harley. He is a 13 year old Jack Russell Terrier. He still has a lot of spunk left in him.

Five Ways To Wear A Pair Of Pants - Blouse
We’ve made it half way through the week! Is that week half way started or half way over… that’s up to you!
We are going through 5 ways to wear a pair of pants.
1st Day was The Boyfriend T Shirt.
2nd Day is The Tunic.
3rd Day is The Blouse.

I have always been a denim wearing lady. I never know what my day might turn into, whether it be working on an art project, repurposing a thrift store furniture, going to the dog park…denim, we know, lets me do anything. This week I am focusing on a certain pair of my pants. A light distressed denim from Zara.

Today I am pairing my denim with my yellow striped blouse from Anthropologie. The short bell sleeve shirt flatters any arm (which I am always looking for) and the loose silhouette conceals any imperfections that we want to keep hidden (which I am also always looking for). Modern ColoristModern ColoristI left my outfit really simple because today I wanted to keep it light. I was out for a walk and to enjoy the sun! So I slipped on my Forever 21 Flower Sandals which not only complemented my top but also all the beautiful springtime blooms. These sandals are my springtime favorite because even though they have a flowery design, the colors make it easy to mix and match with most of my closet.Modern ColoristLove me a high pony to keep my hair out of my face. Modern ColoristTie back in the red in the shoes with the some bright red lipstick and you got yourself an outfit!
