Looking Back, Looking Forward: Favorite Summer Brights

You all could probably guess my favorite color to wear right now.  It just happens to be the color of the year too—tangerine tango.  I’m also quite fond of fuchsia and blues like turquoise and aqua.

In today’s Looking Back, Looking Forward, I’ve put together an outfit that combines all my favorite summer brights.  I’ll also take a quick look back at other ways I’ve been wearing these colors lately.

Tee—Michael Kors via Marshalls (similar)

Skirt—Mossimo for Target high-low knit skirt

Shoes—Tahari via UpperBid

Bag—MICHAEL Michael Kors via Macy’s

Necklace—Amrita Singh via Hautelook

So, what are your favorite warm-weather hues?

      Thanks for stopping by, Jen. Now, does the "Trini" in your blog name mean you're from Trinidad?

      Oh cool…thanks. To be honest, most days I carry that tote with everything because it's so much trouble to switch bags. Ha!

      Thank you! This particular shade of orange has always been a favorite color. So, I was thrilled that it was chosen as color of the year. More options for all us 🙂

      Hey Mica. Thanks. I decided to pull a few of them together in one post because I was scrolling through my recent images and saw a trend–orange everywhere. Lol.
