Colors of Summer

I have accumulated so many outfit pictures on my computer from the past year, and I'm so excited to eventually feature all of them! Today I'm sharing one of my favorite color combinations for clothing; red, yellow, and green. Knowing yellow is my favorite color, last Christmas my boyfriend got me this polka-dot skirt and chose a green top to go with it. I thought it was really sweet that he put time into putting an outfit together for me. I'd never worn yellow and green together before, and I loved how this outfit ended up turning out. I feel like the front bow-tie gives an otherwise plain top a little character and the solid color goes well with the polka-dot pattern of the skirt. I added red shoes and accessories to complete the look. The bright colors remind me of summertime, and Skittles candy (without the purples)! :)

These pictures were taken at the lovely Balboa Park in San Diego, California. The park is so big, and there are so many pretty spots! I just had to include so many of the ones we took. Hope you enjoy!

(Funny story, as I was leaning against the wall for the above picture, from the corner of my eye I could see an elderly lady watching me. After my boyfriend took the shot, she asked if she could take a picture of me in that exact pose. I think she was a tourist! I felt both flattered and awkward, but mostly awkward...)

Also, a big thank-you to Ashley of Southern (California) Belle for featuring my outfit on her Inspiration: Summer Outfits blog post, it totally made my day! She has been a huge inspiration to me both fashion-wise and as a new blogger! Thanks Ashley :)

  4. I am so excited to learn that you have a blog! I saw this outfit on instagram and I was totally swooning over it (: I love that you wore so many bright colors at once. Your style is perfect!

  5. I LOVE this outfit- a perfect combination of colors and that polka dot skirt is SO fun! How funny to have the lady take your pic, I would be nervous too! Taking blog photos sure can lead to interesting interactions with strangers :)

    1. Thanks, Lisa! Taking photos in public definitely takes some getting used to :) xo
