As I put together my summer outfits, I tend to run into the same patterns: Dress or blouse-and-skirt/shirts combo, flat shoes, minimal accessories. Because I’m not a huge summer person, I feel like warmer weather is limiting because the more you add on, the higher risk you end up sweating all day. And it’s not even over 75 degrees in Minnesota yet, but I’m already falling into that trap!
But we are creatures of habit. The most important thing for me to keep things fresh during this time period is to wear as many patterns as possible and try fun, new color combinations.
A bold skirt with a subtle print blouse is perfect for this type of outfit! I liked mixing my polka dot blouse with the fox skirt. I also enjoyed how a Peter Pan collar can stand so well on its own so you don’t need a cardigan, blazer or other type of outer layer to complete it.
For colors, I mixed mint with my bold yellow Salt Water sandals because a) I wanted to wear these sandals and b) Mint and yellow are not two colors I would normally pair together. Mint tends to be something I pair with other pastels. However, I thought this color combination worked perfectly!
