Carlsbad Flower Fields & Current Color Crush

And so… my color obsession continues with today’s post. Perhaps it’s knowing that summer is just around the corner, or maybe it’s the beautiful flower fields in Carlsbad that offer the most romantic rainbow of gorgeous blooms on all shades imaginable, but I simply can’t get enough of bright color combos at the moment.

 

 

Funny thing is that for a long time wearing pink and red together was considered to be quite the fashion faux pas; yet lately, it is this particular combo that became an “it” pairing in the fashion world. But that’s what I love about the fashion moment we are enjoying right now, anything goes is the new thing, and we are finally free to experiment with colors, textures, styles, and express our sartorial identity as we see fit.

My personal rule when it comes down to combining two bright colors is keeping my accessories neutral. Let the two bright shares be the focal point of your outfit, and keep everything else as simple as possible. Here I went with espadrilles and a straw bag. It ended up being a perfect outfit for the day we had—chic with bright colors yet toned down with casual bag and shoes. Another favorite way to combine these colors is to go for a red blouse and a pink accessory, like a shoulder bag, while keeping the rest of the look simple. What about you guys, what’s your favorite way to combine bright colors?

      Thank you 🙂

  • Fabulous look! When I was an active costume designer for the stage , red and pink were the hidden powerhouse. If you wanted a leading lady to take the stage red and pink always worked . Look to the great musical films of 1950’s you’ll see red and pink in many musical numbers . These two bright colors energy, draw attention, and are very dynamic! I love this combination! ❤️💕❤️
