Summer Crush

One of my favorite pairings during summer is black and white with hints of bold and bright, even neon, colors.  Black and white can look so crisp and clean together.  Super bright colors just play up that crispness.

Today on the blog, I’m playing with this pairing in a recent work look and a fun summer combo that I plan to wear to work soon!

Skirt:  Eloquii (Available here)
Blazer:  Eloquii (Available here)

The first look involves a bit of print mixing.  The black and white striped skirt can easily go more serious if it needs to, but I love playing with my wardrobe a little more in the summer.

Top:  Target (Available here)

Shoes:  Target (Similar here and here)

Clutch:  Target (Available here)

Necklace (worn as bracelet):  The Limited

Glasses:  Valentino

This top has such a laid-back bohemian feel, but paired with the midi skirt, it feels more put-together.  I plan on tucking in the top and wearing it with a blazer for work. 

I accessorized with a neon yellow necklace worn as a bracelet and a printed clutch to complete the look.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite looks in a while.  I just love it!!

The second look is a lot more subdued, but was such a comfortable work look. 

Skirt:  New York & Company (Available here)

When you sit at a desk all day, it helps when you can
find clothes that feel polished but that have a lot of stretch.  The scuba
pencil skirt and boxy crop top were just so easy.  

Top:  Eloquii (Available here)

Wedge sandals weren’t
necessarily my first choice stylistically for this look, but they were
an easy choice for added comfort.

Shoes:  Sugar (Available at Kohl’s here)
Necklace:  Target
Cuff:  The Limited

Earrings:  Torrid
Clutch:  The Limited

Which look do you prefer? Do you have any favorite color combinations for summertime?
