Happy summer! I wanted to share a summer look I created last week. Although the look itself is very simple with easy layering pieces, the color combination is striking!
About This Outfit:
[The Outfit]: I am wearing an orange cami from Express. I have a ton of the Express camis that I typically wear to the gym, but I love the color of this one so much that this is a part of my regular wardrobe, NOT my fitness attire! (Although, I’d have no problem hitting the gym in bright orange)!
The vest is by Yoana Baraschi. I have definitely featured this piece in previous outfit posts being that it is so versatile and easy to style. I love the cut of the vest along with the unique edging.
The baby pink denim shorts are Liz Claiborne. (Don’t laugh)!! These are actually high waisted, but I chose to layer the cami over the waistline in this look. My other option when styling these would be to tuck the shirt into the shorts so you can see the horizontal line created at the waist. I picked these up at a local consignment store and fell in love with them the moment I tried them on in the fitting room. I think it’s very safe to assume that the shorts are vintage, 80′s? Perhaps, 90′s? I have no idea, but regardless, they are totally rockable in 2012! (Hmm, I think I just made up a word).
The peep toe heels are Gucci. I wear these a lot as you can see! I always get a ton of compliments on them too no matter how I style these!
[Where to wear this outfit]: This is a casual look for me. The heels dress it up a bit but ultimately, I would still classify this as a daytime look.
- I’m absolutely in love with this color combination. Initially, I had styled the bright orange with the light pink shorts and thought that in itself was striking as they looked like summery creamsickle colors when paired together, but I wanted to step it up even more so I decided to then incorporate a splash of black by adding the vest and the heels. Why?! High contrast = visual captivation!
- Being that the shorts are high waisted, visually, they make the waist look even smaller by cinching the waist even more. These shorts happen to fit perfectly, slightly snug but not suffocating. I wouldn’t buy them if they were too snug for comfort!
- It’s interesting to find that orange is the “it” color this season as it turns out that all my orange pieces I purchased a year ago. I loved it then as much as I do now. It’s just great to be ahead of the styling curve![Thanks for viewing! Thoughts?]
