What to Wear to a Beach, Without a Beach09:02:00
Of course, once we did reach the garden I was overly excited by the little circles on the ground. I kid you not, circles excite me, so much so that I insisted on standing right in the center to take all the pictures. Erm...lighting wasn't working out (or so I was told) so I had to leave my circle. I do have some rather great ideas about role-playing some circle games here. Okay, maybe not.
Onto the outfit, I wanted to showcase a fun, bright beach outfit. There isn't a beach here, but this outfit is still pretty great for say a weekend drive. A bright orange top and bright pink shorts equal lots of happy colors. The top was a great street find and there are lots of lovely solid color tops out there which I think every girl should own (in atleast 3 different colors). A pair of sunnies and a big tote to carry all my day's supplies, and I'm ready for a day at the erm...beach/garden. Honestly, I could pack a nice lunch in that tote considering how big it is!
- Summer is all about bright colors, so don't be afraid of mixing colors you wouldn't normally put together.
- If you're afraid you'll look like you dressed for the circus, start small, use colors you're most comfortable with and then work your way to things you find daunting.
- Usually, colors from the same color palette work well when it comes to color blocking. For instance, red and pink actually look great!
- Don't want to color block using your clothes? Use accessories it add a little color and interesting dimension to the whole outfit. Think bright shoes and a bright bag.
- As the outfit itself is pretty bold, tone down the accessories. Neutral accessories work well when it comes to color blocked outfits.
- Finally, remember to have fun with it! If you aren't loving your outfit how will you expect others to like it!
