Top (old from Anthropologie) // Pants // Shoes // Necklace // Bag (Old Navy, couldn't find it online!) // Earrings // Nails // Rings (here, here) // Sunnies (real version)

One thing I think people are afraid of is mixing colors. The biggest thing I find while helping style people at work, whether they be a seasoned J. Crew shopper or a first timer, I think everyone gets a little wary. They think their jewelry needs to match a color in the top, which needs to both go with the pant or skirt. And there is no possible way coral, bright yellow and turquoise can remotely go together in the same ensemble. 

My biggest piece of advice I can give while trying to figure out how to best mix colors is to play around with it. You never know what will work, or not, unless you try it on and see. Often times the most unexpected ones go the best. For a more tonal look, take colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. Where ones that are opposites on that same wheel might make for a more impactful look.

Some of my all time favorite color combinations, to act as a guide: 

1. Neon Pink and Turquoise
2. Tone on tone neutrals: Blush, Tan, Gold, Ivory
3. Navy Blue and Black (don't cringe, it actually can be quite chic)
4. Yellow and Cobalt Blue 
5. Turquoise with literally every color. It's the perfect pop color.

And if all else fails, reach out to me! Lets be besties!
