How about accessorizing your outfit with a striped scarf and a polka dot Brahmin bag? Add a  blazer and this outfit becomes a versatile set. You can always dress it up with a nice pair of trousers. I’m comfortable going almost anywhere in jeans!

What do you think? Are you liking this shade? I’d be bold and mix it with coral, orange or any other bright color combination… but have fun with it!


Orange, hot pink,  bright green and yellow are all happy colors. They always seem to add a spring in your step when you put o  these fun colors. It’s been a long winter – and I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for sunshine, blue skies, warm weather and barbecues! Here are a couple of outfits that will help put you in the mood!
