Pairing bright colors

This is an outfit I wore a while back to work and clicked the picture out of sheer vanity :-D

I normally don't take much risk with my color pairings, always going for complementary colors, but I saw a similar color combination on Mad Men and I really wanted to try it out since this skirt is kind of Man Men-esque with its high waist and a-line silhouette. Pardon the unsightly tucked in blouse!

Since the skirt was so bright and the blouse is so far away from orange in the color wheel, I kept the rest of my outfit neutral with the beige sweater and beige-ish sling back shoes.

Blouse and sweater - the limited
Skirt - Banana Republic
Shoes - Anne Klein via DSW
Peace watch from Fossil.


  1. Very nice! Like all the colors and how you paired them. Especially like the length of the skirt. That's difficult to find. Very summer-y

  2. like your skirt and the peep toe shoes and how u matched the nail colour :)

  3. nicely put together! Loved your skirt :)
