What a nice complement / Navy + Beige

Inspiration / Lauren Conrad

This look by Lauren Conrad is what initially caught my eye and it's perfection.  The deep red lip and high bun are fabulous complements to the outfit.  Navy and beige are a classic colour combination that will never go out of style and can be worn no matter what the season is.  I hate that confusion between seasons when you aren't sure exactly if you should make the plunge or not to switch up wardrobe and colours.  Since we are about to transition between summer and fall you can stick to this combo and feel confident that you are on trend.  
Check out how I've styled a look using navy and beige with what's in my closet.

Outfit of the day / Highlighter glow

Who said wearing neon couldn't get a little fancy!  Combining pleats and ruffles in a highlighter hue this skirt is a whole lot of fun and does not go unnoticed when worn.  To keep this look on the pretty side I neutralized the look by wearing this off-white silk blouse that had it's own element of surprise; being backless.  Perhaps with all these elements going on in one look you might think to stop there but I decided to push this looks limits a little further.  Body chains have been creeping on the style scene for a while now and this one by ARMED (here's another post featuring this jewelry line) fit so seamlessly with my blouse.  I finished this look off with my favourite shoes of the season by Sam Edelman.  These tribal looking pumps are so comfortable and because of the fun punch of colour I find myself wanting to wear them with just about everything.
