|Dress handmade, Caslon Jacket from Nordstrom, Jewelry borrowed, Flowers from the garden.|
Well color me inspired, after seeing those lovely ladies rock the brights I headed to my closet to see what I had. I actually had the perfect lightweight bright berry pink jersey dress that I made at the end of last summer, but never wore. I paired it with a light olive color jacket picked up at Nordstrom's half-yearly sale(thanks Nordstrom), bright turquoise beads borrowed from my mom's jewelry box (thanks mom) and a pair of old reliable black sandals from clarks and voila bright outfit perfection!
|The color pink seemed to change depending on the lighting.|
|The dress was made using directions from a magazine, it came out completely different than expected, but I like the final product better that the original pattern.|
|The slight drape in the front of the dress was created when I shirred the back to bring the shoulders in.|
|Combination of borrowed and bought jewelry, one of the bangles I found at a tag sale.|
|Necklaces made by my aunt and given to my mom.|
|I did the shirring(gathering) on the back of the dress to try to make the shoulders narrower.|
|Adding the flowers was a last minute idea, I felt inspired by the profusion of flowers in the garden.|
Bright clothing and bright jewelry are an easy trends to try and succeed with. The only rules are; choose a color that flatters your complexion, pick a silhouette that suits your figure, choose jewelry in a complimentary or analogous color (not sure consult the color wheel).
What are your feelings about the bright color trend? Do you have a favorite bright color in your closet?
