In past years, my summer wardrobe has consisted of navy blue, navy blue, and more navy blue. How exciting, right? I’m from Maryland where nautical colors pretty much influence everything from decor to wardrobes. But moving to Dallas forced me out of this preppy comfort zone of mine and made me look at clothing in other colors. Oh the horrors of that! I ended up falling in love with a few new colors and even, dare I say, patterns!
Summer Colors to Love
I spent a good hour trying to put together the right combination of my favorite summer colors. I think David sat around rolling his eyes waiting for me to get ready so he could to make my photos and be done with it. He’s a good man! I finally had the right combo of color and I had to share it with you!
Corals, yellows, royal blue, and white are such a great color palette to work with! They’re bright, happy, and easily worn together. For years my bestie Jessica has been trying to get me to wear something different from my usual J. Crew wardrobe and moving to the southwest inspired me to buy more coral and yellow for my closet!
I’m still not ready to mix patterns yet (I literally can’t even) but I definitely love including a pattern somewhere in an outfit! The detailing on my shorts adds a little extra something to the whole outfit I think! David took me to lunch on Saturday and among the cactus and outdoor seating, I felt like I stood out. What girl doesn’t love that? Shop my look with the links I provided above!
