Navy, Green & Fuchsia: Nothing To Be Afraid Of

Recently one night Beverly Like Hills and I were having dinner. I was wearing this navy with dots tank but with dark denim bermudas, a white linen blazer, a fuchsia cross-body handbag, and gold wedge sandals.  I was telling her that I was thinking of wearing this top with a kelly green blazer, but I was too afraid to try it.  This was way out of my comfort zone.  She said it would work, and that it would rock, and that I should do it and not be scared!  It was the pink dots that had me thinking they wouldn't work well with the bright kelly green, but the pink dots are so minimal they don't compete with the green.  I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone.

I also stepped out of my comfort zone by using the tote with dots even though the top has dots.  I'm thinking this works because the dots are black and not too matchy with the dots in the tank?

This outfit could improve by adding a bracelet in a lighter, mint green.  I wish I had one!

I wore this last night out to our favorite Japanese restaurant with our family to celebrate our 11th anniversary.

Orange & Purple Stripes with White Skinnies

Thank you to Beverly Like Hills for mentioning me in your fantastic, stylish, awesome new blog!  Orange and blue together is totally beautiful, and your version is perfect especially with those beautiful snakeskin sandals.  I believe many of you will recognize Beverly as she used to post as Style Underdog. 

My dear friend from elementary through high school who moved away to South Carolina almost twenty years ago - visited a few weeks ago.  It was so fun to hang out again.  We took her to our favorite spots in Laguna Beach and had an awesome time.  I can't wait to see D again hopefully soon at our 25th high school reunion this September.
